The reality of living in a city is that you need to lock up anything of value to you. You don't need the best lock money can buy, but you need something better than average. Invest a minimum of 15% of your bike's value in a good lock. 

Thieves are opportunistic and will go for the lock of least resistance. For this reason we do not stock the most vulnerable style of locks, cable locks.

We recommend investing in a good u-lock or folding lock that will secure that most valuable part of your bike, your frame. Next use another lock or set of locking skewers to secure your wheels. Most bikes come with quick release skewers that are easily removed in seconds.
