Glow Worm Bicycles | Locks and Bicycle Theft Prevention

Love your bike? Here's how to protect it from getting stolen with a good quality lock!

As popularity increases for bicycles and electric bicycles in Sydney, bicycle theft will rise too. Don't be an easy target - buy yourself a strong lock that suits your bike's shape and value and suits your lifestyle. If a lock isn't convenient to carry and easy to use, then your bicycle will be at risk more often!

Generally speaking a high quality U-lock is the best value in terms of strength for weight and strength for cost. Aim to buy the smallest one that's still easy to use for your bicycle. Some bicycle shapes aren't well suited to U-locks, which makes the best option a longer flexible lock made of rigid links. But remember, the longer it is, the heavier it will be! And if it's a light and cheap flexible lock, it's simply not high security and suitable only for locking kids bicycles or very low security situations like stopping at a cafe. 

A Dutch wheel lock might be able to be fitted permanently to your rear wheel and has saved many a bike!  Many electric bicycles come fitted with these already. We have plug in chains that can be used in conjunction with a wheel lock. However, the highest security is to use the wheel lock plus a high quality separately.

Finally, saving your bicycle from theft isn't just about the lock that you take out with your bicycle but making preparations for how and where you are going to lock up at home. You may need a floor anchor installed in your garage/porch and a heavy duty lock that stays with it (too heavy to take with the bike). Or perhaps you need to consider how you store your bicycle. We may have some bicycle storage accessories that would make storing your bicycle in a more secure place more convenient, including bicycle covers.

Bicycle insurance should always be considered a last line of defence as prevention is better than a cure. Similarly, recording your bicycle's serial number and taking some photos with you and your bicycle might help recover it if it does get stolen.
