I used to have a fairly nice mountain bike that I was NOT allowed to keep in my apartment. It was against the rules to bring bicycles inside. As I work in theatre, I was able to procure a length (6 feet) of half inch thich aircraft cable with the loops swaged on. This was extremly tough cable that was used for hanging several tons of material above a stage. I used this along with a "harley davidson" padlock that I got from my uncle that was used to lock the forks of his last bike. It was a weighty piece of work and used a round key instead of a regular flat one.

One night.. all the bikes in our apartment complex got stolen, and that included mine. They even took the cable and padlocks
