Get a Lock.

You should carry a lock when riding, because it is likely you will be invited to go somewhere. The best all purpose design for a bicycle lock is the mini u-lock. They are stronger than longer u-locks and easier to carry. They are basically as secure as the giant chains - only cuttable by power tools. Great method: Use two locks for twice the security. Keep your bike indoors when not in use. OnGuard = very good, locks both ends of loop. Kryptonite Evolution = well known, Kryptonite New York = more metal.

  • OnGuard Bulldog mini u-lock $35 with purchase of bicycle
  • Kryptonite Evolution mini u-lock $40 with purchase of bicycle
  • Kryptonite New York mini u-lock $65 with purchase of bicycle

The nut set works with single speed Monello, Donna, and Bici Pista.
