    Because I am mostly unteachable, this has happened to me I think 3 times. Take a look at one end of my bungee at Velo tonight. Because I'm cheap, I refuse to replace it just because the end is wickedly malformed.
    I carry my lock like this:

    Easy on/off this way. Also, in the rare event it is needed as a weapon (thankfully, never so far), it is readily accessible.

    Heh, the bounce has gone from his bungee.

    I don't mix bungees and bikies myself.

    OK truth is, I must also be unteachable (unlearnable?) because yes this happened once before. The thing is - I should find a picture - I used to keep my u-lock on the top of the rack laying down, under the bungee cords (2 of em!), Kinda like yours but different.

    So then I switched to hanging the Ulock in the rack (a la Drevil), but not securing it. but the bungees helped it stay in there - until they didn't.

    Now I'm afraid of bungees.

    Will keep one in my bag when needed, not attached to the rack!

    But i'll keep them on hand for
