I can fit in 1 ride /week to/from Uni. Bike will be locked on a busy part of the campus so I think something more pick-proof that cut proof would do the job (have a great big chain and lock - but that's a bit too heavy to lug about!).

What do the wise recomend?

A small U lock will do the trick, you have to put it through the rear triangle and rear rim.

Can you leave the chain locked to the rails/rack/etc permanently? Why lug it about?

Same as that. Why carry all that metal around? One lock I only retrieved a year after leaving the job.

In my rush to sort myself out, and get my work done, and fit in a quick ride etc etc I've just been out and bought a Kryptonite lock. I'm now £30 worse off.

But yes, thinking about it I could have left the chain at Uni.

What's that tune.. If I only had a brain......

I've just got that Magnum (onguard) but without the extra cables from Halfords. It's one of the latest "onguards" with the 4x locking system (4 x shoot bolts) - it's fairly heavy, but tough - gold standard.

Also bought an onguard pitbull chain - omg it's heavy at 4.5kg's - that for when I'll be leaving my bike on a uni campus in Manchester when I start a new job at one of them... the magnum plus the onguard chain....... The chain will have to remain on site as it's that heavy.....
