Bike Locks

Bike locks are absolutely critical when it comes to biking. It may seem obvious at first, but there have been times in the past I have seen bikes left out in the open with no locks. The first bike lock that I want to talk about is the Kryptonite New-U New York Lock. This lock comes out to around $112. That may seem like a lot, but two of the main strengths of this lock is that it is not only high security, but is also relatively lightweight. The lock also comes with 16 millimeter hardened steel shackle. Another bike lock that I want to talk about is the OnGuard Brute LS. This bike lock is much cheaper than the previous lock, which is about $51. Two of the main strengths are that is secure and also has a wide shackle that offer even more lock-up options. Personally, I would be willing to pay more for a quality bike lock if it was actually more secure compared to what else was on the market at the current time. The third bike lock that I want to talk about is the Hiplok DX lock. The difference between this lock and the previous two locks I mentioned is that the Hiplok DX lock is that it is able to clip to a biker’s waistband. This is actually really helpful because it no longer needs to be put in pockets which can get uncomfortable extremely quickly. These are just three popular bike locks that are on the market, but there are many more.

  1. I do agree that bike locks are very important, especially if you don’t want to get your bike stolen. I have noticed that most people don’t use bike locks, this coming from someone who never learned how to ride a bike.

  2. I haven’t owned a bike in some time but it was cool to hear about the different types of bike locks. I really thought the one that can go around your waistband is quite helpful. and if I look into purchasing a bike I will defintely have to purchase a lock as well.

  3. You can never be too safe when it comes to equipment like this! Bikes are easy to steal so I believe everyone should have one.

  4. I love how you gave a list of all examples from all price points! It is always one of those things where you don’t realize you need it until you do!
