Securing the rear end of your bike to another item with a ‘D’ or ‘U’ lock is recommended. Set up the ‘U’ part of your lock around the rim of your rear wheel, the detached front wheel, your rear frame, and the immovable object, and then attach the straight bar to the ends of the u-shaped piece to secure it in place.
If you’re fastening your bike lock to the frame of your bike, place it high in the seat tube, in the center of your down tube, or on the bottom of the top tube, depending on your preference. This will keep your lock out of the way while yet allowing you to use it when it is most convenient for you to do so.
