A bicycle lock is necessary to ensure the safety of your vehicle by limiting mobility. It can be attached to a wheel, to a frame, or to improvised objects - a post, a tree, a fence, etc. People often buy a cheap bike lock without thinking about the consequences. There are various options in quality, design, and material they are made of.
According to the opening method, the bicycle lock can be coded (with a 4-digit number) or locked with a key (flat/cylindrical). In terms of reliability, they are approximately the same. It all depends only on your budget.
Even if you do not know about them, they are still there. For starters, do not leave your bike unattended for a long time. But if this is not possible, then you should buy a bicycle lock. It does not guarantee 100% protection, but it creates obstacles in front of the thief.
There are several types of bike locks:
Rope with bracket. Its use directly depends on the thickness of the material, because a thin cable can be easily cut with a bolt cutter. They differ in length, thickness, and type of lock.
Arc. Made of stainless steel, which is difficult to damage.
Lamellar. Consists of steel plates, which must be at least 0.5 cm for protection.
In addition to the additional materials that the protective device consumes, they can be divided according to the type of locks. The most common option is key locking. But a combination lock can compete with it. The main thing is not to forget the set of numbers or not to lose the key!
