    Most of the time I use a Kryptonite New York U-Lock. Sometimes depending on the bike or location or timing I'll augment it with a second lock. Haven't had anything stolen yet (*knocking on wood*). Technique is important, as is perception. You want things to look worthless yet well-cared-for, and anything you can remove without a tool should probably be locked, unless its resale value is zero (for example, I have some cheapo REI panniers which were $20 new, but while still usable, are completely beat up -- I'll leave those unlocked on the rack and it's never been a problem). Try to avoid locking overnight if possible. Try to avoid a predictable schedule.
