what is the point of getting a light bike (expensive) if you are just going lock it up with a heavy lock? doesn't that defeat the purpose of the light bike in order to have to carry a 6 to 9 lb kryptonite chain?
would it be better if they had just bought a heavy (and cheaper) bike and use a lighter lock. you still end up at the same weight, but a lot cheaper.
for example, i have a 27lb bike and a 1 lb u lock, so the total weight would be 28 lb.
if a guy carries a 6 lb chain, his bike needs to be at most 22 lb pounds, and thats just to break even with my bike, not to mention how much more $$$ his 22lb bike will be compare to my 27lb bike.
are light bikes for suckers? or should i say are people with light bikes that use heavy locks suckers? what about those who have an light (expensive) bike and carry a light lock? bike ready to be stolen?
