Chains, with good locks, MAY be harder for a thief to defeat than a U lock, and they can definitely be used in ways/situations U locks can't.

I use a chain for my Bike E (single beam recumbent), camping, and when I expect to have trouble finding something to lock up to.

U locks are lighter and easier to carry.

I use a U lock for my patrol bike (when possible) and for my beater/grocery getter.

OnGuard makes makes some good U locks and some so-so U locks.
