Thumbs up Cheap Antitheft Device

     

After reading the post about the stolen bikes this morning, and thinking about the people and friends of mine with bikes i realised i am the only one that locks mine up.

Well instead of spending $40 on a proper disc-brake lock i thought why not put a paddlock on each disc rotor and that will do the same thing for less money.

This is a fairly common thing and it is probably nothing new to most of you people but just in case you dont lock your bike up and there is a chance of it getting stolen go to your local hardware store and for $5 get 2 locks and just lock it up....

the only downfall to this as you know, is if you wanted to remove any form of disclock you can just hit the disc with a hammer and it will shatter..

sorry about the picture, it has been washed since then

i had a bike chained up in the bed of my truck one time witht he tailgate lock on and they still stole it. i had a chain going through the rear wheel spokes and had a good lock on it too. it still didnt stop them. if they want the bike they will find a way of getting it.

Not only do I cable my bike to my trailer, but I also put a padlock on the rear disc rotor when we are traveling.

at walmart they have these cables with locks built into them. they cost about $8 each ,about 6 feet long ,and would be very hard to cut through. i have one of them through my front spokes and around my pipe and another through the rear spokes attached to whatever is around. (chair, table, lawnmower)

It's a pity these things still happen!! It pisses me off that there are always people who take the goods from someone who has worked his butt off to buy the things he always wanted!!

I have seen people do that before, it's just a shame that you have to do it at all.

I had purchased a trailer tongue lock, one to where no bolt cutters would be able to cut it off, I think it was about $10 or so.
