When can I remove a bike locked to my property?

I know YANML but if someone locks their bike to my gate, at what point am I allowed to remove it? Must there be a posted sign? And, then, am I responsible for the removed bike if it is damaged in the process? Do I have to hold it for the owner? If I do, can I charge $100 a day for this service? What exactly are the laws governing this kind of situation? If location is relevant, I'm in NYC. [more inside]

save my bike

I've just bought a new bike, and I'm desperate to not have this one stolen from me. I even got a foldable one so that I can bring it into my apartment, but besides a good lock (although I'd love suggestions) what other ways can I protect it (for instance, can I register it with the police?). I live in Brooklyn, NY. [more inside]

Bicycle Lock Recommendations?

So I'm living Chico, a great bicycle town, and I got my treasured cruiser (over 6' long, black & cream, whitewall tires) out of storage. Bike theft and vandalism is a pretty big problem here, and I was wondering what people are using to lock their bikes in the wake of the Kryptonite lock issues. Bonus points for something that doesn't make my cruiser much heavier than it already is.
