    My biggest issue with the rail mount is it seems like a pry bar is all they'd need to open the rail and remove the lock. That is a nice easy solution though. I'm trying to balance security and effort/cost because I know a real thief will get what they want. Just something I can leave for an hour maybe to go grab dinner or something with the bike in the back. My other thought is something like the Kryptonite Evolution Ground Anchor. They have a backing plate kit for truck/trailer installation. Would provide a more stout lock point.

    Some decent products reviewed in this article but more importantly is the food for thought offered about exposing yourself to theft.

    I really avoid leaving my bikes unattended. But like today...doctor apt with the wife halfway to a trail system with a ride after. Right now the plan is drive to apt, drive home to get bike, then drive to the trails. The extra trip to come back for the bike kills and hour of my day vs feeling ok leaving the bike in a parking lot for an hour and leaving straight from there. In my area, I think I'd feel ok with this assuming I had a solid chain and lock, but the factory tie down leaves a bit to be desired. Anything that takes loud tools would probably be fine in this instance.

    That's a concern of mine as well, there is definitely a lip present between the backing of the lock and the rail. If someone could get leverage they could pry it off... but works for a quick gas station stop or post ride beers

    Related to bike security, I'm looking for a bombproof bike lock to use with my hitch rack, something that can be locked to my receiver. I've seen the Kryptonite name often, does anyone have a beefy chain/lock brand or model they recommend?

    Kryptonite or Abus is a good place to start. They both offer security ratings to give you an idea of how stout they are. The New York Disk lock and a high security chain would be a good bet.

    Think about how much of your weight is on the front wheel when you’re stopping on a downhill vs your rear wheel. I’d bet money if you started utilizing your front brake you’d gain a ton of riding confidence.

    I know that anxiety, I get it too. I think it’s more about keeping honest people honest. If they can’t snatch and run they’ll most likely leave it alone in the day time.

    Yep I think you're mostly right if you aren't talking major metro areas (I'm not). But I was just thinking one step further, likely tools a slightly motivated thief would have - some cheap bolt cutters and a pry bar maybe. Would be pretty easy to park next to a truck with a bike, wait for the coast to be clear, snip a cable lock/d-ring, and make off with the bike. If each level of lock system prevents that and requires busting out an angle grinder I think it would be that much safer. And a stout lock point in the bed could be useful for plenty of things.

    First time at Trestle Bike Park(Winter Park) and it was amazing in comparison to my experience at Evolution Bike Park(Crested Butte). Highly recommend hitting the more difficult trails so you don't get premature crab claws hands like I did.

    Edited: Hey everybody, I bought one of those Get-a-Grip shifter adapters a couple of years ago, and after running it on and off, I like the TRD cue ball better. That said if anyone wants it let me know and I’ll ship it out to you. It fits a 2005-2020 6 sp. manual transmission. M12X1.25. It’s just the adapter, you gotta supply the grip of your choice. Let me know.
