It depends on the circumstances, only you know what will make you feel safe. Just about any cable lock will deter the casual passerby who might be tempted to ride away on the bike or throw it in the back of their pickup. Somebody with the intent and equipped to steal a bike can defeat any lock in a minute or two. There are a lot more of the former than there are of the latter and continuum in between. It comes down to a matter of probability. Considering the area, the amount of traffic, and length of time, what's the probability somebody the intent and capability to defeat the lock you chose will happen by? No matter what lock or where, somebody eventually will, given enough time.
