    How cheap? 😀

    I wouldn’t even trust my oldest, sweatiest helmet with that item that pretends to be a lock.

    (Just because people complain about ‘how expensive’ every week there’s no reason to promote goods that are completely unfit for purpose but cheap.)

    in al lseriousness, what’s wrong with that lock?
    it’s the highest rating for insurance isnt it?
    im not convinced any chain can’t be cut through a in a few minutes with a portable angle grinder

    Wonder if those Endura socks will be a stupidly sized as their main competitors.
    Or, anyone know of decent waterproof socks where people who are size nine dont end up with a sock that will accommodate up to a size 11 (with all the associated bagginess)

    Can’t help thinking the lock being referred to was the one below it.

    The shock linkage on the Specialized Turbo Kenevo SL Comp makes my brain hurt just trying to figure out how it moves……

    Oxford Combi Zip Lock – just a complete copy of Hiplock version, which is my main cafe lock for my road bike….

    I thought that as well. Lots of bearings to replace 🙁

    Take a video – I’d love to know!

    Lots of bearings to replace

    and lots of spaces for mud to collect….

    Hey, delayed thread time.

    Some ace pics of the summer gone.

    I need me an autumnal colours and riding thread now….

    I wish my wages had gone up even half as much as that Kenevo. From £7k to £7750 in the space of a few months.

    I’ve got a couple of the Hiplock zip ties and they’re great for the bike and/or trailer in a playground (where you’ll be able to see it the whole time but need to stop someone just grabbing it. Not secure enough to leave out of sight. Also good for helmets, etc.
    when you’re pedalling around with 2 3 year olds and 2 balance bikes in s trailer (plus all the other crap small kids need) a heavy lock can be one step too far!

    security aside, I like using the zip ties type locks to ensure my bike is snug against the parking rack and does not get tipped / fall over (crunch expesive parts)

    I think idlejon was talking about the little ziptie lock, but tbh the yale lock will be shit too. You’re right that anything can be cut with a grinder, though it does take less or more time. But a professional will break that lock with croppers, near silently, in less time than it takes you to undo it with the key. It’s for stopping junkies and kids basically.

    It’ll satisfy insurance which is worthwhile even when the lock’s crap, but, it also tells you how rubbish the sold secure standards are.
