"Thanks! I've been lucky enough to only have a rear wheel stolen (value of wheel, tire, parts: ~$220). I do what I can now to keep my steeds."

"*Update from my post from 2012 since carrying 10lbs of locks on my back was getting crazy* I now use an Abus Granit X-Plus folding lock that comes with a bike-mountable carrying case, a 7-foot cable, and an Abus Mini u-lock. I use the folding lock…"

"http://lifehacker.com/5942301/the-proper-way-to-lock-your-bicycle I lost all the other info I typed so the short version is: High pedestrian traffic area. Multiple lock types. BigA** Chain, U-lock, padlocks, cable, (alarmed) disc lock if…"

"Abus Mini should be fine. Weighs less than half of the New York Forgettryingtospellit and ihaving two locks should be enough to deter thieves."

"H' 1.0 - Experienced the lunacy of Kedzie 1 to many times also. Treacherous. Mike M! Thanks, my name is also Michael M by the by.  I also like that option 4 is take public trans (ha!).  Consensus seems to be to take 83rd instead of…"

Anne Alt replied to Michael Millican's discussion Help me South Side Riders, you're my only hope.
"I'd agree with that. Kedzie becomes a speedway before you reach 87th St.  California is much better, and it goes through as far as 103rd. I'd definitely agree with Chuck's comment about avoiding 87th. It's a worse speedway…"

"You're right, I should have looked more closely at the whole route."

Chuck a Muck replied to Michael Millican's discussion Help me South Side Riders, you're my only hope.
"I would stay off of 87th its a 6 lane freeway more or less. I hate that google always recommends it when you have 83rd which is a bike route... "

"The problem with heading to the S.W. Side is the big rail yard. There are only so many streets that go over it. Kedzie is one of the less crazy streets that go over it..."

"Thanks Guys! More or less going near 105th and Cicero.I took Kedzie all the way down once and a number of folks I knew said that might not have been the best choice. So I figured I would consult the experts.   M"
