Exaclty what I was thinking... though I'd probably take the seat out too :twisted:

I don't trust D-locks much as they're way too easy to bust open with common tools.

I think if you got though the big lock and D lock all the owner would find on the floor is a set of MPH brakes :wink: :wink: :wink:

That's funny, I locked my bike up at a college many many years ago with a D lock and the whole mechanics dept. couldn't free my bike. I had to just abandon it :(

I wouldn't read too much into that. As an undergrad I shared a house with 2 guys doing Mechanical Engineering. It was left to muggins here (a chemist/physicist) to suss out why the vacuum cleaner wouldn't work and then fix the damn thing. ;)
