Other than an alarm system with the ability to disable a bike, what kind of lock should I put on my bike to make thieves think " I should just walk ..... "
lus1: Lock it to something, disc locks don't do squat, they will just pick up the whole bike anyway.Anything that makes it harder to get it will help. But if they want your bike they are going to get it. When I lived in an APT I kept the bike covered at all times and used a thick cable and locked it to a pole or tree.
Disc locs and locking the bike to itself in my opinion does nothing. The bike thefts that I have heard of involved a van or truck and a copule guys throwing the bike in the back and taking off.
The best you can do besides locking it inside a garage is keeping it covered and locked to something sturdy, in an area that is well lit.
