    get a mini and it fits inside your belt... or just in your back pocket.

    if you wear a belt, sit it under the belt between two loops.

    I never have to carry my U-lock cause it's always around a motorist's neck.

    hire a sag driver and have him drive it around for you. make sure the vehicle has a rack, that way you don't have to search for bike parking when you get to your destination.

    Leave your bike unlocked, then when some kid in skinny jeans tries to steal it you can choke him.

    I carry two U-locks (lack of trust in the scum of Chicagoans), a larger and a mini Kryptonite. The larger one is a great way to lock up the front half of the bike and i use the mini to secure the rear wheel to the frame but carrying around the larger one is like having ball and chain tied to your leg. Throwing it in a belt loop makes you look like a clown because its so dang long but when its in the bag...it screws up the position of everything else and isnít very comfortable.

    The best route Iíve found is to lock it through the main strap of my Chrome bag, slide it to the bottom and strap it down with the lowest clip for the main flap. Only downside is that it if the main strap and mid strap are a bit loose, it will pull the bag under your arm pit.

    I may just have to take the clown route.

    there's a (i imagine) messenger around here that rides around with his lock in his hand, i think he has brakes and maybe gears though

    Not exactly that clever nor my idea since the bag was made for it but this works so great! the quickest and easiest access to the lock. Didn't work as great with that big lock but mini's and normals are perfect! Someone told me that I was going to die when I wrecked with it like that and I have gone down twice and couldn't feel a thing.

    Or if those lobes are really stretchy...lock 'em together. That'll teach him.

    Is between the strap of your bag and your chest, if you have a light load or are going on a long ride, hook the stabilizer strap through the lock.

    Mini in the Ass pocket if i'm not bringing my bag
