We carry two 1.8meter medium weight cable locks just to make the thief work a bit for the bikes. At night we put the bikes next to the tent and I hook up a 120db purse alarm from the vastibule to a spoke with fishing line in case they try to carry off both bikes in the middle of the night. It's cheap and works great, I've woken up the camping a couple of mornings when I forgot about it
Nowdays thieves use lightweight and portable battery powered cutting tools to go through just about any hardened steel lock, chain or cable on the market.
