I think y'all are right it won't matter if I uglyify it. Her normal rider is a 2000's trek 5200, so she does know a good bike, and does take care of her stuff. It was her idea to ugly it up, but I think I'll leave it as is.
A good lock is obviously the best plan. I used to commute on a Seven and used a masterlock cuff, but I also parked on the second floor in the parking lot. There was bike rack on the first floor but it was a joke, and I thought thieves are lazy so they won't walk up a flight of stairs if they don't need to.
