When you buy a bike, there are a few things which are absolutely necessary to go along with it for safety and security. A lock is an essential accessory to keep your bike as safe as possible and, hopefully deter any thieves. Bikes are very popular these days, so never presume you needn’t worry about your bike if left unattended, even if you can see it from afar.
The popularity of cycling within the younger generation has increased massively, and as a result of that children's bikes have advanced, brands are making sure they get the best of riding from any age, with lighter and better spec’ed bikes. This means security is key, leaving your child’s bike unlocked at school, in the park and just out and about is no longer an option. At J E James, we want to make sure you and your bike are never separated, and with the following locks that will hopefully never be a problem. There are a variety of locks to choose from, varying in style, size, and strength of security. The security of the lock you choose will depend on where you plan on locking up your child’s bike.
The playground bike sheds are no safer than bike racks at your local supermarket. If you are going for something lightweight, easy to carry and flexible, then a cable lock will do the job perfectly, these usually come with a combination mechanism or require padlocks to secure them. For something more robust that will give you peace of mind whilst away from the bike, a D-lock is what you want. This will provide a high level of security, you can buy D-locks in 3 sizes, from mini to large. Combining a D-lock with a cable lock will mean you can secure your wheels too. Maximum protection. Kryptonite and Abus are two very reputable brands. But the choice is yours, just make it a safe one.
