    Both are fine choices for the Sheldon Brown locking method (rear wheel to locking post). However, unless you live in friendly village, you need a second lock to secure the front wheel. The OnGuard Pitbull TC mini u-lock is a good lock for the front wheel.

    For your wheels you could also invest in some locking skewers. This post has more info on them. Bike theft countermeasures
