Bike choice (inc rarely washing it), and a big lock.
I've got a relatively small but sturdy cable lock and happily leave my commuter which is a decent quality roady out the front of a supermarket or doctor for a short visit. Usually lock with the front wheel off to get frame and wheels both locked. I usually have to plan ahead as I don't carry that lock around.
Fortunately my commutes involve secure bike cages and a heavier lock left in the cage.
