Safe to lock my bike up at college?

Hey, I have a new trek 4300. Not the priciest or fanciest bike, but it was expensive for my budget. Normally I just ride on dedicated bike trails and keep it in my apartment.

Wires rubbing on rear disc?

I'm incredibly stupid when it comes to bike mechanics. I've tried spending time to learn, but in general I seem to get overwhelmed.

I'd prefer a free-standing mount. My...

So, I found a cool trail that runs alongside a paved path I'd ridden for a while. I rode a short stretch before, but decided to tackled the full trail this morning. Parts of it are quite nice (see...
