Here's what you need for your component lock up issue.

http://www.pitlock.com/

"...PITLOCK secures bicycle front and rear wheels, seat posts, forks and even brakes from theft...PIT-Ahead secures the shock, Ahead set, and stem..."

So that's wheels, post, fork, stem, & brakes.

I suppose that leaves the bar, levers, and seat for you worry about. Hmmmmm.....I'd prolly skip the seatpost thingy and take it and the seat with me. Bar and levers? I guess I'd take my chances there. Maybe go with Tiagra and a cheapo bar. Slap those Torx bolts on for good measure if ya want.
The beauty of all this is that it minimizes your locking up with a ton of wimpy cables and posing a challenge to someone who knows how easy it is to defeat 'em. That screams "I'm worried about theft of my nice parts".

You could get by with a short New Yawk chain with the Pitlock gear and not look like a huge "steal me" sign.

Disclaimer: I have yet to purchase the Pitlock set myself, so I have no experience with it personally. Meh.
