This is what I do. Not only is the bike not likely to be stolen from the bus, no one will be riding off with it while I'm waiting (remember, a stolen bike is its own getaway vehicle). A few times...

I looked at that article, but I dunno. I put the U-lock on my front wheel and frame, figuring the front wheel is easier to remove, thus more likely to be stolen. I also carry a cable and heavy duty...
