What's a good lock setup for the cityscape. Looking to protect the bike for an hour or two while I go to a store, restaurant or event.

For those of us with the older style u-locks, they can be opened easily with a common very small household item.

Ah yes, I didn't think to check with the Oracle of Bicycle. I've read about the u-lock thing but I guess that's largely corrected now. The strategy proposed by Mr. Brown is what I was looking for. The best deterrent being inconvenience; if it looks like too much work they'll move on to easier prey.
