I won't be parking my bike in Manhattan but a queens school campus. I don't know what the crime rate is like in queens. Since I start school soon I did not have time to purchase a New York 3000 or such so I bought a bell u-lock and bell Kevlar chain lock. I also purchased a t-hex chain with a disc u-lock soon to arrive. Planning on securing the bike to a rack outside the campus. I don't know whats safer. Initially I was going to park it by an entrance door but the pole is too large. People do it but are forced to use only a cable, pad or chain lock(s) of some kind. Ok for evening classes? I will be taking night class and I want to be able to use all three locks. I am going to try to include the front wheel if it fits through all the locks. Otherwise skip the ulock on the front wheel and use the two other cables.
