I picked up a $25 Kryptonite TKO folding lock from Walmart.  Super easy to use and better than something that loppers can cut.

If they are able to cut the lock I have a GPS tracker hidden and secured in my frame and internally wired to battery.  Was pretty inexpensive.  I ended up using a FreedomPop SIM for free tracking.  I was surprised how well it tracks.

I have one of those locks too.  Unfortunately, in an area with very little bike infrastructure, that lock won't work.  It won't go around all light posts and trees, etc.  I'm also carrying a cable lock which is good for here.  My bike also has a wheel lock that must be engaged in order to remove the key.

The happy drunks kind of kept an eye on it at Safeway, in the precovid days.  I take it into home depot.  They block their bike rack off with displays and get perturbed if you lock it to a display rack.  I've complained about that but guess bike riding customers are rare as nothing is done.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

I think he bought the bike!

Best ebike video I've seen.  How to explain how they work?  It's me, only faster.  Lots of humor and riding on pavement, gravel and trails.
