According to the reviews in Amazon.com, this seems like a sturdy lock that you can get at a 50% price drop.

It's a good idea to lock your bike to a frame when parked.

You may want to get yourself a cable with a loop at each end from your local bike shop to help secure the wheels - your local equivalent of this :

If you are going to go through the trouble of removing your seatpost, take it with you.
