Two Words: Angle Grinders. Elapsed Time: 2 seconds.

This time it was legitimate (thanks Mike!) but the fact remains that a determined thief with a cordless version can grab any bike/trike under the sun regardless of the lock used and in about the same timeframe.

Fortunately determined thieves are rare, particularly for unusual bikes like recumbents.

For the record, what was the lock used in this case?

It was a Kryptonite cable lock, and it was a decent lock at a reasonable price.

However I truly don't think it would have mattered since I've also had occasion to see an angle grinder take out reasonably tough D-lock in not much more time.

ie: the difference between an OK lock and a superb lock is likely to be all of 5 seconds if you're really lucky.
