lock for larger tubing bikes??
i was just wondering what you guys use for your larger tubing (aluminum: concepts, vigorellis, etc..) to lock up with. i am looking for a u-lock and was really curious if the kryptonite mini works when locking to a regular street sign pole or parking meter. i was trying to measure based on the sizes given on the kryptonite site and it seems like it would be a very tight fit but was seeing if anyone had any first hand experience. if you have any suggestions on a u-lock that fits well please help me out. thanks a lot!
Personally I prefer full size U-locks due to the many more places I can lock up with them. Also, street signs often just pull up right out of the ground. A mini might be good if you know exactly what you are locking up to, but if you aren't sure, and ride to many different places, go with a full sized lock.

In the much more quaint suburbs I freelock if I'm running into the wawa or something, sometimes I don't even lock. For being away from the bike for 2 minutes it's just not a problem out here.
