    On my Brompton 3 speed IGH, I dislike three things. One, the inability to shift under load. Two, the pain it is to take off the rear wheel. Three the weight only because I have to carry the bike.

    One U lock and Pitlock skewers for both wheels and the seat post is what I use now.

    If I don't want to carry a lock, I just use my Brompton and carry that inside when I need to.
