    You wear that around your waist? Man, what happens if you crash?

    Speaking of bike security, the other day i was reading AMB and they were advertising a light with a built in GPS tracker. Pretty cool idea

    Step 1: don't crash.

    In the event of a crash I would lose a bit of bark off the hips, it's not tight on the waist so if it was any worse and the ambos had to remove it they could just slide it over my hips (if they weren't worried about a spinal), but I would hope they have the common sense to check my pocket for the key first because they would never be able to cut the thing off.

    It is heavy but I would rather come back to see my bike where I left it, especially after just having one half-inched.

    In Canada you had to have a minimum of a 12 rating Kryponite Ulock. Even then people would carry 2 ulocks because the other wheel would get stolen. A bike on the street in Vamcouver with a cable lock would last 20min.

    It's very sad the rate of bike theft in canada. There was even a man in Montreal that would carry around a pump and pretend to pump up locked up bikes only to steal their unsecured wheels and seats and anything else, people wouldn't say anything because they thought he was working on his own bike. A mate in Vancouver has had 3 bikes(separate occasions) from the bike room at his aparments. He uses a Kryptonite Ulock and a cable lock for the rear wheel. He said atleast 1 bike goes missing from his apartments bike room a week.

    I use a 10mm abus chain with a stainless steel shop shutter lock. Just enough space to get 2 links in. Weighs though...

    From memory velosure/other companies will only insure you if your lock costs more than a certain amount. Might have to pay retail locally to achieve that.
