Bike Protection
I am usually pretty paranoid about getting my bike stolen. It is a fairly expensive model (to me at least) and I have made many modifications on it myself so it also has some emotional value. I got myself a good U-lock and a good cable from Kryptonite. I just found out they offer a key registration program. You enter the numbers on your key and if you ever loose them, they can make you a new copy and send it over to you. It's a nice customer service touch, although you would have to be pretty unlucky to loose both keys that come with the lock.

And if you want to ever have hope to see a stolen bike reappear, check out the National Bike Registry. Sadly, this seems to be a US only project, One would hope it would spread to Canada.
