Re: Jealous!

I've got a Krytonite lock, with a Gold rating from Sold Secure - I wrote a bit about that in August (about half-way down the page). I don't carry it around with me all the time on the Brompton, only if I'm planning to leave my bike outside somewhere. When I get the new bike, it may be easiest to buy another lock, so that I can keep one at work (e.g. locked around the Sheffield stand when I'm not here) and only carry the other one with me when needed; that would avoid the extra weight.

Cool Beans :)

In your august post, you mentioned that you weren't carrying it everywhere because "it's heavy, and I can't easily attach it to my bike". I guess with the new bike, attaching it to your frame will be a lot easier.

I do know people who keep one really heavy duty lock at work, and another at home. Those guys mostly only use their bikes for that one journey. For myself, I like to feel I always have the freedom to ride wherever my legs will take me. So I always carry a lock a helmet, some lights and a hi-vis windproof.
