If using a “U”-lock, put the crossbar of the lock next to the frame (and the U part around the thing you’re locking to). With enough leverage, thieves can pry open U-locks, but they are less likely to use the bike’s frame for leverage as it will probably bend, rendering it useless to the thief. — Christopher
A cool tool is anything useful that is superior to comparable items. If you think this tool is inferior suggest a better one. You are welcome to insult a tool, but comments containing insults to individual people will be deleted. Corrections of fact are always welcomed, if stated politely. Recommendations of better tools are dearly wanted and may be elevated to the front page.
