the Hiplock looks like something worth carrying. I wouldn't do anything more than that though. I think making it just enough trouble that they can't move the bike easily is probably more than enough on any randonneuring ride I have been on. In Pennsylvania, I think that people are mostly going to sell your bike for scrap price, so most bikes are barely worth stealing, even for that. Steel price is so low now that it really is more trouble that it is worth.

In California, there are thieves that understand bikes, that's not a good thing.
