Suntour NCX seat suspension -- lock it in?


I just installed my new Suntour NCX suspension -- love it. But it's quick release -- pretty easy to steal, no? What do you guys with NCX/thudbuster/bodyfloat do? Do you take your seat off every time you lock your bike? Or install a screw so it's not quick release?

Another option would be to put a small cable lock through seat and around rack to deter quick thieves (wouldn't work for overnight ,etc since they would snip it)

Cable lock would be best.
Also, you can get a seatpost collar that uses a special key ( I had this one my previous bike )
Most of the seatposts use Allen key and it's easy to remove such a thing. The seatpost mentioned above is not easy to steal if you don't have that key.

I replace all quick release hardware including wheel skewers for two reasons, peace of mind in the bike rack and properly torqueing parts and fasteners with a torque wrench. I carry a bike multi-tool anyway, so no need for QR. Too much emphasis for QR is made by bike sellers.
