Locks get clipped

Someone was cutting locks downtown today.

$50 will buy something that can snip young and tender cable locks like these.
Unless it's an absolute beater, don't mess with cables
Beaters aren't really safe either though, in a city where crackheads will steal your half-full water bottle (happened three times, in broad daylight).

Either of these will work. I use the one on the right, a lot of people use the one on the left. Right is lighter and more manageable while the chain on the left, though heavy, will allow much more flexiblity in locking, and is favored by track bike/fixie* types.
*Will get into this subject in a later post
