    could always make your own chain from links at home depot or something. wrap it in old tubes (ive heard fire depts will give away their old hoses if you wanna get real fancy), get a thick lock, and bam.

    yeah...but the kryptonite is 12mm thick which is the allure...hah! a hardened steel chain from the depot could work but it's just not the same. Besides, how are people going to know how much i spent on locks if they don't see "kryptonite" on the lock. ;P ;P

    We drove to itapaiva that is north of Rio de Janeiro and stayed in the mountains for a 3 day weekend. 1st pic is a bike park called Montanha Azul. We didn't make it far before I broke a few spokes on the GT bike so I was riding my santa cruz tallboy. Nice hand built downhill trail with a lot of flowy parts. Does someone have an idea why I always break spokes on this bike?? It's a 2015 and i've broke spokes on the front+rear wheels multiple times. I never broke spokes before this bike.
    The 2nd pic is at a bike shop in town, they have a very nice cafe, a bike shop, and a trail system in town.
    The 3rd pic is one of the trails that was a steep, difficult to climb to the top. It looks like a fire went through here recently. It also has a white horse walking around and he wouldn't let me pass for a while lol

    I return to the USA in a few weeks. I'm missing home and my tacoma.

    bad wheel builds? poor quality spokes?

    honestly, anything kryptonite. the beefier it looks, the more secure it is. I have the new york fahgettaboudit chain lock and a standard u-lock. All will work really well. You're welcome to look up videos of people trying to brute force these things. Even their standard u-lock. Often times, the tools themselves will break before they make an impression on the lock body. :D

    New trend: people start to steal the lock and leave the bike

    I second this. I used to park my $6000 motorcycle in NYC and would leave the bike chained to something stationary for weeks at a time. They're expensive, but a good quality chain will last a life time.

    LOL. Funny story, I get a little paranoid about this so if I'm not using a lock, instead of leaving it in my truck bed, I put it inside the cab.

    I got the Schlage cinch chain. With the cinch loop you could tie two (or more) chains together and just lock the ends together.

    I also got the Kryptonite New York disk lock. Didn't need the full size u-lock for my setup and it was a bit cheaper.

    I think for alot of us, tacomaworld is about as "instagram" as we get. I personally despise social media.
