I'm going on a month long fully supported tour from chicago to new orleans. I'm worried about leaving the bicycle unattended since I'm not going to have somebody with me to watch over it. I have three lock options; kryptonite u-lock , regular cable lock and the thicker kryptonite cable which can be used with a master lock(also with u-lock).
U lock is heavy, regular cable lock is weak.
Also i would feel better locking the panniers too when i'm in a store in a busy town but i m not sure if that's necessary?
I can't decide.. advice please.
