I there a recommended /n/ bike lock?
I recently purchased my first "real" bike and would like to commute to my university with it, but I don't have a lock yet and I'm not sure what to go for.
Thinking of either a kryptonite fahgettaboudit, kryptonite series 2 or a abus granit x plus folding.
The first one seems like the safest but it's also the heaviest, and it's expensive and quite short (unsure I can fit rear wheel, frame and fixed point with it).
The second one is the cheapest but I've seen some mixed reviews from people (bike stolen easily?) despite having great ratings everywhere else. It also comes with a cable, so that's nice.
And then the third one, about the same price as the kryptonite fahgettaboudit. Seems more practical as it's a bit lighter, easier to get around frame/wheel/point and can be folded and mounted on the frame quite nicely. Not sure if it holds up as well though.
So, any recommendations or advices?
I plan on getting a cable for the front wheel too for all three.
Thermal underwear thread

Can somebody give me a rundown of the differences between materials used for thermal underwear? I know cotton is shit, but that leaves merino wool, technical fibers, a mix of the two, or whatever else there may be.
I need something that can be used for everyday use under my jeans as well as for cycling in -5'C maybe -10'C temperatures for short rides (<30min). From what I read, technical fibers are supposedly better for sports, but there's a ton of different models with various blends of materials and I'm not sure what to pick.
Please don't recommend any brands; I live in Poland and I have a lot of polish companies to choose from that are much cheaper for the same quality than internationally known brands.
