Hey, I have a new trek 4300. Not the priciest or fanciest bike, but it was expensive for my budget. Normally I just ride on dedicated bike trails and keep it in my apartment.
This coming semester, I'm thinking about biking to class. I'm nervous about locking it up outside though. It's a community college, and I only take 1-2 classes a day (going part time).
Would I be pretty safe by properly using a quality lock (granted, it will need to be portable--I can't leave it at the school)? Or am I better off finding a cheaper and/or "ugly" bike for commuting?
