    Oxford disk Padlock

    After finally being home for a few days before our summer family holiday. I thought it nice to nip Mrs H into town and have a nice sit down noodle meal and a shandy. As the day was nice and sunny we opted for a jolly down the coast for an Icey.
    At the point of the clutch biting and the disk lock jamming I realised my error as Mrs H and me rolled sideways with a broken brake lever and a little pride gone.
    Fortunately enough two nice ladies got us on their phone tho didn't help us up.  Just ordered a yellow thing to clip to the lock and bars.
    Has anyone else been such a txxt on their bike? I wonder  :462:

    Ewwww  :006:
    Not yet done the same event, but trying to avoid such a story to make the start key unable to insert in the HISS by putting it in a tube as a reminder:

    Only thing is: must not forget to put key in tube when mounting the lock.
    It worked so far, knock on wood.

    Once or twice. Trying to get the bike out of garage, so no damage done. Dropped only once, but givi bars saved the day

    I use a disc lock with a spirally yellow lead that I wrap around the brake lever stopping me moving the bike until its been removed .. I cannot even roll the bike because the brake is on

    I have never used them for that very reason, I just fitted a cheap remote alarm, likely more effective, insured and protected no claims,   :211:

    Anything greater than the standard steering lock will stop it being simply wheeled away down a side street and into someones shed. A car park in our town was famous for such a crime it only took two watchmen and a single bloke minutes to get the bike into his shed down the street then they were stripped and on Ebay. Luckily someone collecting a part noticed how close the culprit was to the known hot spot for bike theft.

    I prefer the Xena.
    I have a hi-vis spiral cable on it, but better still, the alarm will sound if I move the bike at all, should I forget I fitted it.

    BTW, no good locking one wheel if all it takes is to lift it on a skateboard.
    You could always back it up with a padlock through the rear disk. Just don't forget that one as well.

    I wonder if it is more difficult for thieves to do the skate board trick on the rear wheel, if there is only one lock there in the rear disk.

    As kids the police said we had to walk our bikes to the off road area on a skateboard it was almost impossible if there was a pea size pebble in the pathway it was always very difficult

    +1 for the Xena alarmed disk locks. Goes off as soon as I touch the bike so I have a frantic 10 seconds trying to get the keys back out and shut it down or look a prat to the neighbours.
