Bike Locks and Insurance

Postby nicklomas » Thu Nov 08, 2012 16:35 pm

Hi Guys,

After my Booclycle was stolen I was looking to get a new lock and was wondering if anyone can recommend a good one?

I was also looking at Cyclegaurd for insurance and was wondering if anyone had any experience in dealing with them as living in London I'm sure I'll have to use there services again soon!

Many Thanks

Nick

I use 2 D locks and have never had a bike stolen in 6 years of riding in London. However the D locks do weigh a fair bit and the bikes are not worth more than about £550... If you use a bike worth a grand or more and lock it in public it's always going to attract attention from thieves. Some insurance companies require you to use specific types of lock....
