    Bike Locks

    I have a question about locks. First, witch should i buy (my shop only carries this brand)
    1. Bike Gaurd Warden Lock
    2. Bike Guard Flexi-Link 3000

    Also, if i only have one lock, should i lock to the frame? Look at my name for my bike.

    I LOCK MY BIKE UP at my school. Yes, i HAVE to ride it to school. Its in a really new neighbour hood, but numerous bikes have been stolen from there. So, any tips?

    The U-lock is great , but you need a flex lock for places with no rack.

    When I was in college, I was the only rider who actually locked his bike (granted, there were at most two other bicycles there). I don't think anyone would steal it, but I guess I'm paranoid.

    If theft is a problem in the area, order a Kryptonite U-lock online. Get whatever one has enough theft guarantee to pay for your bike. Fill out the paperwork and sent it in right away. (I'm assuming you're in the US, and not in NYC. If you're in NYC, you have to get one of the Kryptonite New York City locks to get the theft "insurance".)
