- How to stop scumbags nicking your saddle
If it was one of my nice bikes then your absolutely right – they never leave my field of view. But this one is an oldish entry level boardman racer with no upgrades. Iv been hapily leaving it locked up in town for over a year now for pub duty using a motorbike chain left in situ. Its nice to be able to do this and walk off with nothing to carry and only one lock to worry about.
to be honest Im prepared to pay for the odd cheepy saddle now and again to do this – but some sort of harder to remove bolt would be a bonus. I was thinking of a torx bolt as being an improvement on Alan key as a scroat deterrent – but was wondering if there are any anti-theft devices better than this available?Posted 4 years agojulianwilsonMember
Keep the key on your keyring or in bike bag. Not many bike scrotes have 5 sided allen keys. The seat collar thingy is bodgeable onto many seatclamps: luckily went straight onto mine when I took the qr lever and thumwheel off. Won’t stop a thief unbolting your saddle from the top of the seatpost but then you could go crazy fiting security bolts all over a bike and someone would still find something they could undo if they had the time or inclinaton.Posted 4 years ago
