More than 1,200 bikes are stolen every single day in the UK alone, so it’s essential to invest in a dependable lock. Cheap locks will act as a visual deterrent to opportunists, but won’t stop a dedicated thief. A good rule of thumb is that the heavier the lock is, the safer your bike will be. So when choosing the right lock for you, consider your peace of mind, and how much metal you can comfortably carry.
