Out of my 7 years of experience bike commuting, I've never had a bike stolen. That's pretty impressive (or lucky) considering that I've even had periods of time where I had to exclusively lock my bike outside (even overnight) in public. Here's my strategy that I've used to never have a bike stolen, and how you can avoid bike theft.

My bike lock setup:

2. OnGuard Bulldog Mini:

3. Kryptonite Kryptoflex Cable Lock:

*note: I actually just use a generic cable lock, but this Kryptonite one is marginally better
