• Bicycle anti-theft alarm, lightweight

    Answers Given

    Answers Favorited

  • Does anybody know of a lightweight bicycle anti-theft alarm that could be used to supplement a cable lock? The alarm could be made up of a small-gage cable that locks into an alarm unit, and would wrap around part of the stationary object to which the bicycle is cabled. The combination of cable lock plus alarm could be a viable alternative to carrying a heavy U-type lock, for example (which I never carry because of the weight). The main use (for me) would be parking my bicycle downtown, where there are lots of people out and about.

Two good options here: http://www.easylocks.co.uk/lock-alarm-maxi-cable-alarm-alarms-p-3416.html http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=10868

I've used the top one for a number of long distance bike tours successfully. I think it's gone off once accidentally in the middle of the night but that's it!

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
