I carry my OnGuard u-lock bike lock with two strips of double sided velcro hook and loop tape, and the TwoFish Megablock XL lockblock rubber bumper.
This lock carrying method takes up one water bottle space on the bike. Alternatively, a specific ulock mount can be used to offset the lock to the side of the bicycle, or under the saddle, but the balance and control of the bicycle could be different.
Most of the bike lock manufacturers include ulock mounts with their locks. Most of these mounts are made of plastic and could break on rough terrain, which is something to keep in mind.
What are your experiences with carrying bike locks?
Tip: For the best protection, use 2 strong u-locks. More hassle for you + more hassle for the thief = less hassle losing your bike.
Note: The rubber block I use by TwoFish could potentially break if loaded with too heavy of a lock. Just keep an eye on the integrity of the rubber and any straps you may use. My lock only weighs 1.8 pounds.
