First of all, ignore the weight weenies who say the Fuhgetaboutit lock is too heavy. Would you rather ride with a heavier lock and never have your bike stolen, or ride with a lighter lock and have your bike stolen at least once once? (After which time you will probably buy the Fuhgetaboutit, for obvious reasons).

You'll also want to consider what the bike is going to be attached to. If it's a modern bike rack the Fuhgetaboutit's U-lock should be able to fit around that, the frame & rear tire OK. If there's going to be a variation in bike rack types, or you might be locking up to a wider platform like a street light, then the chain may be a better choice. The Evolution series also provides a couple of different sizes for a near-Fuhgetaboutit level of security that could be adapted to a variation of bike racks.
