ATTACHER SON VÉLO EN TOUTE SÉCURITÉ
  1. Choose the right lock. The level of security you need depends on where you are leaving your bike, and for how long.
  2. Always lock your bike to a solid object that it cannot be lifted over
  3. Lock your bike in a well lit area with high foot traffic.
  4. Make sure what you lock your bike to cannot be cut
  5. Lock according to value frame first, then back wheel, and finally front wheel.
  6. Get a right fit! The less room inside of the u-lock or chain, the more difficult it will be for thieves to use their tools.
  7. Position your lock off the ground with the keyhole facing down.

Frame only u-lock or chain:

There may be an instance where due to either an oddly shaped locking structure, the size of your lock, or the size of your bike, where you are limited in what you are able to capture in your lockup. In this case the frame should be the priority of the lockup.

Frame AND REAR WHEEL u-lock OR CHAIN:

There may be an instance where due to either an oddly shaped locking structure, the size of your lock, or the size of your bike, where you are limited in what you are able to capture in your lockup. In this case the frame should be the priority of the lockup.

FRAME, REAR, AND FRONT WHEEL U-LOCK AND CABLE:

There may be an instance where due to either an oddly shaped locking structure, the size of your lock, or the size of your bike, where you are limited in what you are able to capture in your lockup. In this case the frame should be the priority of the lockup.

BELOW ARE SOME ADDITIONAL TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN LOCKING FOLDING BIKES SPECIFICALLY.

THE LOCK

When locking a folding bike that has been folded, we typically recommend using a chain, long shackle u-lock, or a folding lock.  This will allow you to capture more components of the bike, often times the frame, rear, and front wheel along with the immovable object.

ACCESSORIES

Remember to remove any accessories like GPS units or lights before leaving your bike.

BELOW ARE SOME ADDITIONAL TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN LOCKING E-BIKES SPECIFICALLY.

PRE-INSTALLED LOCKS

E-Bikes vary drastically by model.  When locking your bike, make sure to lock any installed locking mechanism like a pre-installed battery lock

MONITORS

Many E-Bikes have a monitor, or cyclometer.  Make sure to remove these if possible, and any other easily removable accessories before locking your bike.

BATTERY

If convenient and possible, remove your battery and take it with you.

CHAINS

Often times a chain can be preferable when locking an E-Bike. A chain provides flexibility to ensure you will be able to capture your frame and a wheel, especially when a wheel contains your electric motor.

EN DÉPLACEMENT

Lorsque vous êtes en déplacement, transporter un antivol plus lourd n'est pas toujours idéal. Il vaut mieux ne par perdre votre vélo de vue ; gardez toujours votre vélo à proximité lorsque vous ne l'utilisez pas. Il peut être utile de transporter un câble et d'attacher votre vélo à un objet fixe, ou à un autre vélo tout-terrain, afin d'éviter que les voleurs ne s'en emparent, mais cette technique est uniquement dissuasive.

EN DÉPLACEMENT SUR UN PORTE-VÉLOS OU DANS UNE REMORQUE

Il est important que vous attachiez vos vélos durant le transport. En vous reportant à nos différentes options selon le lieu et la durée de stationnement, nous vous recommandons d'utiliser nos produits de sécurité maximale si possible. Faites en sorte d'attacher votre véhicule à l'objet le plus fixe qui soit disponible. Vous pouvez installer un poteau d'ancrage, tel que le Stronghold, sur le plancher d'une remorque et vous en servir comme objet fixe.

À LA MAISON

Il est important d'attacher votre vélo même chez vous, particulièrement les vélos tout-terrain de grande valeur. Les portes de garage ne sont pas aussi sécurisées que vous pouvez le croire et peuvent facilement être forcées. Nous vous recommandons d'utiliser un antivol de sécurité maximale attaché à un objet fixe. Un poteau d'ancrage tel que le Stronghold fonctionne très bien comme objet fixe.

SOCIAL

Soyez prudent(e) lorsque vous partagez vos habitudes à propos de votre véhicule sur les réseaux sociaux. Les voleurs utilisent les applications sociales de cyclisme pour y suivre les propriétaires de vélos onéreux et repérer leur points de départ et d'arrivée pour connaître le lieu où ces vélos sont gardés. Commencez et terminez vos tours en vélos à des endroits différents si possible.

PRACTICE PROPER LOCKING TECHNIQUES! WHILE A ROAD BIKE IS A UNIQUE STYLE OF BIKE, THE FOUNDATION OF PROPER LOCK-UPS STILL APPLY, ESPECIALLY WHEN USING YOUR ROAD BIKE TO COMMUTE. PLEASE LOOK TO OUR STANDARD BICYCLE LOCK-UP TAB FOR TIPS ON LOCKING PROCEDURE, AS WELL AS LINKS TO HELP YOU FIND THE RIGHT LOCK.

 

BELOW ARE SOME ADDITIONAL TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN LOCKING ROAD BIKES SPECIFICALLY.

ON THE ROAD

When on a ride, carrying a heavier lock isn’t always an option.  It’s best to keep your bike in sight, and near you at all times when not riding.  Carrying a cable can be helpful, to attach your bike to an immovable object, or another road bike, to prevent grab and dash theft, but is only a deterrent.

ON THE TRAILER, BIKE RACK OR TRUCK BED

It is important to lock your bikes while in transport.  With some variation based on travel location, and duration of stop, we recommend using Ultimate Security products when possible.  Make sure to lock to the most immovable object available.  Installing a ground anchor, like the Stronghold, in the bed of a truck or trailer can work as a great immovable object.

AT HOME

Locking your bike at home is crucial, especially with high value road bikes. Garage doors are not as secure as you may believe and are easily violated.  We recommend an ultimate security lock to an immovable object.  A ground anchor like the Stronghold can work great as an immovable object.

SOCIAL

Be careful about sharing your riding schedule and bike on public social networks.  Thieves may use social riding apps to watch where a rider with an expensive bike, starts and ends their rides to pinpoint the location of where the bike is stored.  If possible, start and end your rides from varying locations.
