help me choose a bike lock
For roughly the same price, would you buy a kryptonite NY noose (2'3") or a NY chain w/ EV disk lock (3'3").
Have a suggestion for a different lock?
I'd get the NY Fuhgettaboutit chain (3 foot roughly I think?) and perhaps a ulock or mini ulock.

The guy at the lbs kept trying to sell me a combination lock, and I kept explaining to him I had one already, that was a very nice chain that was heavy duty, and that I did not want another one. He said bikes never get stolen on campus (several have been stolen this semester).
Almost every other bike on campus uses a cheap combination cable lock.
I moved here from a top twenty crime city, where, due to having just a combination lock, someone stole an identical recumbent from me.
So yeah, I would suggest a NYFU chain, and a 3000 or other mini-ulock perhaps?
