|Lock Shaped Object, got it on lock (not)|
At work, I suggest to people that they not leave valuable things just sitting out on their desk, particularly not money, or mp3 players, or other easily sold things. So, in my book, no one should use a cable lock at a bike rack in a city because they are next to useless. Compared to the cost of even a cheap bike, a decent U-lock is very affordable, and offers much more security than a cable and lock like these, which is easily defeated. These lock shaped objects do nothing but lend a false sense of security. At least the one in the picture was carefully wrapped with electric tape. Get up. Go ride.
