BIKE LOCKS

If left unlocked, a bicycle is one of the easiest items to steal. They are light, usually expensive, and have wheels. It almost seems like they were created to get stolen. Since they are prone to disappearing, bike locks are used by millions of cyclists to secure their bikes. Whether you are just leaving your bike in front of a store for a couple seconds or storing it outside overnight, please throw a lock on it. It only takes a couple seconds for it to vanish.

There are multiple types of bike locks. The most common are cable locks and u-locks. Many people prefer a cable lock over a u-lock because they are lighter and easier to manipulate. A cable lock is much easier to route through a bike frame and rack, but they are typically not as strong as a U-lock. It is a good rule of thumb to only use a cable lock if you are locking your bike outside during the day. If you must leave your bike outside overnight, it is much better to use a U-lock. Chain locks are a good happy medium because they are more heavy duty than a cable lock but can still be easily manipulated.

Bike locks come in a wide range of prices. In general, the more expensive the lock, the more protective it will be. Cable locks are usually the cheapest option, while u-locks and cable locks tend to be more expensive. In many cases, people with expensive bikes will choose expensive locks. It doesn’t make sense to lock up a $3,000 bike with a $15 lock, and it doesn’t make since to lock a $300 bike with a $150 lock. The more you spend the more secure your bike will be. You must decide how much money you want to spend on that security.
