How To Lock Your Bike?

one of the first things to consider in
locking your bike up is its location
Martin tenting to find a quiet alley way
because lesbians are going to see it
right well actually this is one of these
favorite places because they’re gonna
have time to break your locks without
anybody looking on so if you’ve got a
choice to use a fairly busy place a
square like this where there’s plenty of
people walking by hopefully this will be
a deterrent to most these if there’s
still somebody with your dasty to try
and steal your bike a member of the
public might stop them and you’ll have
your pride and joy still safety in your
hands another thing worth considering is
if there’s a police station nearby
that’s a great place to lock your bike
up but try not to leave it somewhere
where thief knows you’re going to be
inside for some time your place of work
for example the next thing you want to
consider is the type of lock now of
course is a huge range of them on the
market which vary wildly in both price
and quality in general of course the
more you spend the better the quality of
like you’re going to get here in the UK
we’ve got a rating system which goes
from gold through to bronze in Europe
meanwhile there’s an AR T rating system
which goes from 1 through to 5 stars
we would recommend that if you spent
more than the grand in your bike you
spend at least a hundred on a decent lot
that’s going to be really really
worthwhile I’ve got a few different
locks down here at the moment one is
ideal – is fantastic let’s take a look
at them now this first one here is
called a D lock sometimes it’s called a
you lock I sometimes call it an n lock
whichever you want to call it it’s the
gold standard of locks this one’s got a
security rating at a RT of three stars
which is pretty good and these are
really hard than most thieves to get
into of course you’ve got a very hard
and professional they’re probably going
to find a way but a couple of those down
here the next one a chain lock and as
the name would suggest it’s simply a
hard core chain which is covered by some
sort of fabric to stop it from
scratching your bike as combined with a
padlock to put it all together and lock
it into place we’ve also got this lock
extension simply a piece of flexi Ko
it’s really should be used in
conjunction with one of these first two
locks to really make your bike extra
secure and finally we’ve got this which
can simply fit in your back pocket it’s
not going to deter many thieves if
you’re in the country you’ve stopped at
a cafes once been two minutes going
inside
like to order your coffee it might at
least deter an opportunity next thing to
think about is what you want to lock
your bike up to now more and more towns
and cities around the world are
providing the public with specific bike
racks like this one which is absolutely
perfect but if you don’t have that
luxury then you want to find something
which is fixed firmly to the ground
either bolted or cemented like a
lamppost but make sure it’s high enough
that thief can’t simply pick your bike
up with the lock put it over the top and
ride off of it alternatively metal rains
are a good option the final thing that
you want to put some major consideration
into is exactly how you lock the bike up
it might sound simple actually there’s a
lot of people out there that still make
a common mistake it’s very easy simply
put your D lock through around a part of
your frame lock it up and be done with
it
but the problem with that is that most
bikes these days of course have
quick-release wheels if you’ve got a
drug addicts walking bit nearby who
wants his next hit of EPO that is going
to be some very very easy cast so this
is where a lock extension really comes
in handy because we want to secure both
of those wheels as well take your D lock
and start by putting it both around the
frame and the wheel here at the back now
you can put a lock extension around here
but what that means is that if a thief
does manage to break the D lock then
this is also going to be coming off as
well so start by just putting the D lock
on locking it up then taking the
extension put that around the front
wheel and right the way through the D
lock as well taking your second padlock
now that is about as secure as we’re
going to get it but
be wrong here and that is we’ve left
some extremely valuable accessories some
of which in fact are almost priceless so
anything extra that you’ve got in your
bike like a computer going that we’ve
gotten here a bottle anything else you
don’t want to get Nicks like the
saddlebag here at the back just take
them with you so if thieves can’t Nick
them and finally this saddle is an allen
key fixing but if there is somebody very
well prepared some allen keys that’s
going to be very very easy for them to
take off and this is worth in the region
of sixty to seventy pounds so it’s
another consideration worth making

Bike Lock Review

A bicycle lock is an important safety device used to prevent bicycle theft, in particular by fastening a bicycle to a secured object, usually a bike rack, e.g. a bicycle stand or a bicycle dock. Many people choose to lock their bicycles to secure objects for both aesthetic and security reasons, but how to do it?

The basic bicycle security technique is to install an anti-lock bar on the handlebars, a bar which connects the fork to the hub of the bicycle and is secured to the frame of the bike by the rear brake. This bar prevents the thief from unlocking the rear wheel and prevents access to the wheel and brake. The locks for this bar are typically fitted on the back, front, or both ends of the handlebars, and will be designed to prevent a person from quickly removing the bar without having to disengage the bicycle chain.

Some locks for bicycles are designed to also prevent access to the brake cable, to provide an extra measure of protection against theft of the brakes. However, some locks require that the rear wheel is locked in position with a key to prevent the theft of the wheels. When installing locks for bicycles, make sure you have the key or other security mechanism ready, and that the lock is suitable for your vehicle, as many locks can only be installed on vehicles with a certain type of frame or bodywork.

Bicycles are expensive to buy and to maintain, so it is often more economical and practical to purchase an anti-lock bar and lock for bicycles and use it to keep the wheels locked. Anti-lock bars usually fit on the forks at the same places where brake bars normally fit, and they generally consist of a few fasteners (usually stainless steel rivets) that secure the bar to the fork. Locking systems are generally less expensive than buying a complete lock set to fit the fork, but they do not prevent the wheels from being lifted during a theft. So the balance between convenience and security is most important when selecting a locking system for bicycles.

Bicycle locks are available to fit either front-wheel or rear wheel, so a bicycle can be fitted with two locks, one for the wheel and one for the brake. An alternative to rear wheel locking systems is the rear rack lock, which requires that the wheel locker is fitted to the rear of the bike, with a bolt that locks into a hole in the front of the bike’s fork.

Whatever your security needs, it is important to take care when selecting a bicycle lock and make sure that you choose a high-quality lock which will be safe and effective. Also, choose a lock that matches your bike and other accessories, such as the wheels, pedals, and handles.
