I don't know if locked folder is more immune to being stolen. Every lock can be cut, as I'm sure you know.

Awww, don't sell it! I wanted Turkish green, but didn't want to wait and went with the ivory that was in the store. Look at your bike as your transportation and how much will you save on bus tickets....

The OP did ask about riding out of the city, as the alternative to North York. What's wrong with suggesting a pretty and quiet area over an urban one?
