    Semi-apropros bags: best light bike lock?


    One of the things that frequently gets stuffed into the outside (under-flap) pocket of my Super Ego is a U-style bike lock. Mine is heavier than I'd like, even if it's not one of those 30lb chain-link anchors. I wonder, though, in the general spirit of light travel that seems to animate many people here, are there any *light* bike locks worth owning? My bike is neither a beater nor fancy, but I'm reluctant to use anything less substantial; I also have a moderately thick cable + smaller lock, but that smaller lock is of the older Kryponite variety, susceptible to being opened with a Bic pen. (I've see it only on YouTube, myself, haven't yet tried to do it.)

    So: pipe dream?
