Bike theft is something that we all dread, and it can happen anywhere, even at home. Whether we need to lock our bike while leaving it unattended or not, every cyclist will know that sense of security you feel provided by the quality of your lock. However, no lock is 100% theft proof, but knowing you have secured your bike assures piece of mind. Investing in a lock for life is an investment for your bike; better to be safe than sorry.
There are a variety of locks for a variety of cyclists and choosing the right lock comes down to needs - when and where will it be used? Do you need to carry it in a bag or would you like to attach it to the bike? What kind of locking mechanisms do you prefer, a combination or one with keys? It is also advisable to combine two locks to fully secure removable parts of the bike, such as wheels.
