1. Big, heavy U lock, plus big, heavy chain. Leave them at work.

Holy cow! You people are worse than the folks on the classic telescope forum. I can, at least, count my number of bicycles. (Don't ask about the telescopes.)

But... It's a nice bike.

Crashed it.

No big deal. After four decades of using toe clips, I joined the clipless revolution. When a dog came at me, I stopped, while frantically pulling my feet up and back. Arte Johnson...

I picked one up as a retirement gift to myself. It was an Ebay junker that, I think, cost as much to ship as the purchase price.
