I'm using the OnGuard Beast Bike Chain Lock 5017 and am looking into getting another lock later. First off How can each lock be defeated and how long would that usually take? I hear U locks aren't all their cracked up to be But the fahgettaboutit lock seems like it may be something viable. Also The abus locks seem to get a very good rap. I know all bike locks can be defeated just want to know how long it would take someone to do it. If it would take a half an hour or more I'd be happy, I work in a citycenter so theres plenty of people around there.
best things are not locks, take a wheel:)
I was thinking of just taking out the quick releases and just leaving it locked up. lol try to ride off with my bike!

I have an onguard u-lock, a big chain and disc lock, and a krytonite cable lock. I use all 3 when in weak security areas.
I have a cable lock as well, would using the ongaurd chain and cable lock be enough for a deterrent? BTW I work at a community center and It was dark for about 3 hrs before I got off work. I was thinking of the u lock from kryptonite or the disc chain what u think?
