I can give you my experience. I have run a sub 2:40 marathon, so that puts me in the almost, but not really, elite category. I think the question for your brother (though you asked both) is whether...

That lock would work with one improvement. Instead of ink, it shoots out angry sea bass with lasers on their heads. These would attack the thief without damaging the bike.
