Best Cycling Locks Review

After spending hundreds, if not thousands, of ££s on your new bike, isn’t it worth spending a few more on a decent bike lock?

There are one of two places that you’ll want, nay need, a cycle lock. Bikes left unsupervised overnight and when unattended during café stops, will benefit from being safely secured. Bikes left overnight in sheds and garages are secured within the building but are at the mercy of the door locks, which may be adequate but may also be less secure than the thief’s intent. Home insurance policies may also require you to use a bike lock, some even insisting on certain security levels.

Types of cycling locks include U-locks or D-locks, wired cables and heavy duty chains. Locking mechanisms include key locks, number combinations and even word combinations, enabling you to use a password rather than numbers. U-locks tend to be supplied with mounting brackets for fitting the lock to your bike frame but I’ve always found these to be quite cumbersome and add quite a bit of weight. Having said that, who wants a thin, lightweight bike lock?

Wired cable locks should be of sufficient length for you to wrap it through both wheels, the frame and anywhere else you can manage. Key locks should always come with two sets of keys, as losing the only key would result in the bolt cutters being brought into use, ouch.
