In there or strapped to the rack itself with velcro. Also in my backpack sometimes. Just depends on where, how far/long and what else I am carrying.

The Onguard Pitbull mini LS fits the above trunk perfectly. The lock came with a bracket, just never had a reason to put it on.

Basically wherever on the frame it is going to fit and not get in the way. I threw mine out and simply wrap the cable around the seat post. It makes it a bit more difficult to take the lock on and off the bike but then I don't need to mess with the bracket.


In your case you have a u-lock so worse case it is going to rattle around a bit without the bracket, if on the seat post.


Come on now do you spell that way or is it your idea of what you thick is cool?

Didn't I read some place where someone used the u-lock to mount a bag or some other piece of equipment?

There's the problem!

Okay, honestly its probably best in the frame if you have no rack because of the conveniently low consequence of having the weight in that location. A frame bag can be had for $15, and its useful for more than just a lock. Or, you could get some velcro.
