Further to the recent attempts by scrotes trying to nick my bike, I’ve been looking at other deterrents, especially highly visible ones.
My disk lock survived, although damaged, the attempt at being smashed off the disk. Interestingly, I read elsewhere that you should always position the disk lock as close to the fork leg as possible to stop the attempt at smashing it. Any thoughts? Any suggestions as to the best one?
I’ve been reading about Grip-Locks, that lock around the throttle and front brake lever. They’re comparatively cheap, obviously not a first line of defence, but easy to carry round along with a disk lock. Trouble is there seems to be a considerable variation in quality. Anyone used one?
Lastly, yes of course I know the only real defence is all the above, a ground anchor and a f**k off lock and chain. But I’m talking about portable and obvious for when you’re out and about and anything that takes too much time for the lazy scrotes to bother with.
A chilly Easter out there today… brrr…
