How to Lock:
It's most common to use a U-lock to go around both the frame and 1 wheel. Many U-locks now come with a cable to lock the other wheel.
Fill up the spare room inside the U so a thief can't get a bottle jack in to break the lock.
Don't allow the lock to touch the ground where the thief can smash it with a hammer.
The most common U-lock is 7-9" long and will secure the frame and 1 wheel to a fixed object.
Sheldon Brown method - Just lock the rear wheel between the frame triangle. It's impossible to pull the frame away from the wheel.
You man need a chain or cable lock for some racks or where you have to use a tree in a parking lot.
