Question about security / quick release

Are there different options for the axles on these bikes? Is it possible to avoid the quick release designs? What about security features for the seats and lights?

As a city dweller, I frequently park my bike outside. One of the most annoying points of theft in the city all the quick release levers that make it easy to steal the wheels, bike seats, lights, or pretty much anything that clicks on and off easily. My biggest attraction to these WW bikes is the total lack of maintenance and hassle. It's so much more convenient to bolt the frame to a bike rack and not have to worry about all the other stuff...this seems like a logical extension of that hassle free mindset and would make it worth paying twice as much for the bike...

Anyone have any experience with any of these products? And can the bike be purchased with any of these items?

I've had issues with compatibility in the past trying to get a security system that works with my bikes (I have a Luna Stealth, and Biktrix Juggernaut, and a custom road bike). I've had good results thus far with the Pinhead and Abus Nutfix, but I think the Hexlox would be my preference based on my prior research. It also looks like the Hexlox should work for the seat and other components too?

Anyone have recommendations for other security products? What are you using on your bike?

Those locknuts that look good for my Como solid axel as well, will try to find the alarm system mentioned recently. Very loud.

I've only tried I tried Pinhead I found it very difficult get wheels and seat off and on with it. Once I had a shop fix a flat for me. The next day I went for a ride. I was racing down hills at 30 mph. At one point I decided to turn around. I lifted the front end of my bike and the front wheel dropped off. I went home, put the quick releases back on, and tossed the things.
