Locking the rim inside of the rear triangle works because the wheel is too big to slip through the triangle. I don't use this exact method because I worry that a thief might sacrifice the rear wheel to steal the bike. (cut the tire and rim with a hacksaw, slip the lock out of the wheel and take the bike)

So I use a similar method but trap one seatstay inside the U-lock also.
