    In regard to the bike, never use a standard “tow” chain to secure a bike. Only use a case-hardened “hex” link chain w/ a monobloc style padlock. When the bad guys go bike shopping, they are coming w/ bolt cutters which will easily cut thru standard hi-test chain and regular old Master lock shackles.
