Securing Your Bike - Hardware

Looking for the best hardware (locks, chains, cables, etc) for securing a bike in a large metropolitan area.

New York Fuggitaboutit. It's a U lock, costs about $100 off Amazon.

What about doing away with quick releases? What do you replace them with?

My advice is to install a ring lock that accepts a chain or cable that is long enough to secure your front wheel and go around a pole (or something similar).

Ring lock ...

plug in chains ... The number associated with a chain at that link refers to the length in cm.
