Alas, I commute on very expensive bikes.

What's harder to break/pick: the strongest U-lock (krypto or on guard) or the super-heavy kryptonite new york chain?
I use the New York chain setup AND a U-Lock. If I was only going to use one it would be the chain.

When I lock my bike up, I'm comfortable using a cheapo generic chain from Home Depot. But that's only because of the Hyena I leave attatched to it. This is why I'm also comfortable using regular quick-releases and keeping my panniers attached to the bike, even while I go into the mall to watch a movie.

if you lock it around the frame you can use it for leverage but if you lock it around the wheel inbetween the seat and chain stays the 'fixed' point becomes too mobile to do much more then trash the rear wheel.

best deterant is where you lock it up. Well light, and public visibility help a lot

and as said before. Redunty, 2 locks is far better then one.

any lock can be broken, you just want to make it a pain in the ass.

It doesn't hurt to park next to a better bike
