Is your question how to lock your bike or the one in the title? Your comments suggest it's the duplicate. If it is, please edit accordingly or just delete the question.

Or use locking quick release skewers as they're lighter and easier to use than a second D lock.

FWIW I do use a lock like this, but as a secondary lock to my D lock. I use it to attach my bike to things when I can't get the primary lock around them, making it reasonable to carry a mini D lock everywhere. And my cable is a ~6mm thick one, it's just to discourage people from carrying my bike away if they have no tools.

comment Fairings for an Upright Hybrid Bicycle?
A partial front fairing as shown doesn't give much advantage - it mostly helps in cold or wet weather. A full fairing will help a lot on an upright - Steve Gurney used one in the Coast To Coast race (NZ) to great effect.

comment Do DC HUB Motors For Electric Bikes use regenerative braking?
@Batman there is a lot of power, just not much energy. 1kW is a lot of power in cycling terms, but it's easy to get that as available input to a regenerative braking system.

comment Do DC HUB Motors For Electric Bikes use regenerative braking?
The "no point pedalling against regen" is only true because of the low efficiency, so it's a popular question to ask. Assuming 100% efficiency, it makes sense to put a little bit of power into the battery on the flat or a slight downhill while pedalling so you can use that power later to blast up the hills. It's not obviously silly until you actually know that system efficiency is a joke.
