Mini U-locks are frustrating for crooks, because they don't leave the empty space needed for most of the commonly used breaking and prying tools. The two best mini U-locks that are easy to find in the USA are the OnGuard Bulldog Mini and the Kryptonite Evolution 2000 Mini.
A Mini U-lock from OnGuard or Kryptonite around the rear wheel, next to the seat tube, and around a sturdy steel post, such as a parking meter, will defeat manual attacks, forcing the crooks to use power tools.
If you live in the sort of bizarro city where crooks are plugging in power tools on a public street, next to a parking meter, there is no lock made that can protect you for long. (New York...I'm talking bout ya.)
