Pedal bike locks

20 posts in this topic

I've bought a BMX whilst at uni, just to get from campus to campus. I've been leaving it unattended for a week now but I'd hate to see a bill go down the drain. What are the good locks? I'm talking ones where I don't have to come back and see my wheels gone.

Best lock on road

"

* Without doubt the strongest bicycle specific U-lock in the Kryptonite line up

* 18 mm Kryptonium steel shackle will resist bolt cutters and leverage attacks

* Oversize crossbar with additional Kryptonium steel sleeve for double security

* Double deadbolt locking mechanism for extensive holding power

* Centre keyway design defends against leverage attacks

* Sliding dustcover to protect keyway when lock is in use

* Thick vinyl coating to protect bike whilst locked up

* Supplied with three keys, one with a high intensity LED and a replaceable battery

* Dimensions: 8.3 cm x 15.3 cm

* Weight: 2.09 Kg

That's some industrial sh*t! Will it secure the wheels as well though? It looks like it'll only lock the frame.

You'd need an extension cable to lock through the wheels as well, only problem with those is that they're thin and can be cut pretty easily.

bought this bout 2 years ago, too heavy to carry around

It's cool if it's back-back-back in the backpack, but if you don't have a bag then yeah, it's an issue.

wow.

Saying that I used to leave mine outside the shop when I went in when I was younger. I dont know if I was stupid or what but now I wont leave it anywhere if Im not chaining it to a lamp post even if Im only going to be gone 20 seconds.

Not once in my life have I seen someone steal BMX wheels tho. Meaning they'll have to sit down with a spanner and undo the bolts. Unless you have quick release dont bother chaining your wheels up.

Think I got mine from Aldi. £5. does the job.
