Hi, I was wondering if any users could make recommendations for u-locks, chains, and/or cables. I have a folding bike. So far my folder has only been stored in the trunk of my car but I want to start going out around the neighborhood (and maybe commuting eventually) to places that won't allow me to bring my folder inside, and would like to be prepared with good equipment. Thank you!

There's a new strap-lock that I thought was pretty slick, super difficult to cut through and you can use multiple ones to make the bike pretty secure.

However, I would never leave my bike unattended and locked and expect it to be there when I return. Some people have to learn this the hard way unfortunately.
