Locking a Montague Paratrooper
I just got my Paratrooper today. It's been years since I last rode and about a decade since I rode frequently-- it's so great to be back to riding.

My only question at the moment (there will be a whole lot more coming :)) is how to lock this thing. It seems like just about everything is on a quick release. So what kind of lock (or combination of locks) should I get to make sure wheels, seatpost and frame are secure? I was thinking 1 U-Lock and 2 Cable locks.

I don't really care so long as it's safe enough for me to leave while I go to class (up to 3 hours) or pick up groceries in the supermarket and I can fit all the security equipment in my Arcteryx Q10 (10L lumbar pack).

A good U Lock, you can get cables that slip onto the U lock (unless you want the added protection of extra locks. However, if they can cut through the U, they can probably cut through the cables.

You can also get a seatpost cable lock doohicky. That should stop folks from grabbing your seat.

search for all the theft threads for ideas. The QR that locks the frame seems especially tempting (waist height perhaps) to some people, most likely teenagers. You might consider taking that with you.
