What sort of bike locks do you recommend for these bikes?

Assuming something along the lines of a kryptonite U lock or something?
Few guidelines I follow: get a u-lock with a cable to ensure all major components are locked up, make sure the lock has a double deadbolt design so that thieves have to make two cuts to cut through the "U", and get a lock that is just big enough to lock your bike but not bigger to make it more difficult for thieves to make cuts without damaging the bike.

For me, that means I use the Kryptonite evolution new-u mini-7 (not the old version; that one doesn't have a double deadbolt) and I also use the Kryptonite New York standard (I'm a downtown cyclist .

Also, on an unrelated note, I still saw five $299.97 XC00s at the Thorncliffe Park Costco yesterday around 7pm if anyone is still looking. And should anyone starts seeing the XCWs on clearance in the GTA, I would love to hear about it!

Anyone know if they will ever put the XC27 or XC29 on clearance?

Pretty much. I use a Kryptonite Kryptolok U-Lock with a cable as secondary. Will deter a lot of thieves for 'some' time. But we are in the era of cordless and ever cheaper battery powered angle grinders/wheel grinders, so no lock is safe and definitely utilize things like your local police registry.

My second gear on the front is rubbing the metal. Is there a way to adjust this ?

XC27 was on sale yesterday in Kanata, think it was $70 off, and I believe (from memory) it was $329.99/97, or something along those lines at least.

I got the xc00 for 2.5 weeks and rode it 4 to 5 times. The disc is already started to rust, is this normal?

rusting can be normal for rotors, id try to keep it dry if possible if you dont want the rust to appear
