Was planning on getting something down the road for grocery shopping and running errands.

Considering a Pewag Security Chain, but no idea of a lock due to youtube.

Been watching the Lockpicking Lawyer blow through them with ease.

What do you guys use?

Recumbents are so rare over here, and not a lot of people has any idea how the parking brake hand levers work. That alone will stop "joyriders".

But for longer stops/shop-visits, I use a 4 digit combination lock from the dark ages.


Thinking of adding some electronic security. Just a small black box with a blinking led and a omnious hum that gets louder if somebody gets closer would be funny.

Was planning to have a watergun with helmet control (think Blue Thunder) to splash moronic car-abusers, could hook that up with the "electronic defence".
Sounds fun. Another idea for electronic defense... a sonic nausea device.

Like having elevator music playing a the time, and louder as somebody comes closer? Maybe combining that with the irritating green LED lights used at night on building sites?
Sonic frequency that causes people to puke.

If you can get something that's military grade caliper, have it trigger to blow out an attempted thief's eardrums.

I have a heavy lock, but where other bikes are stolen a lot, trikes aren't. Many people don't even know what it is.
Also, moost people see it as a vehicle for disabled people.
