Whether your bike is a recreational vehicle for you or your primary mode of transportation, it is an investment you’ve made in your health and your ability to get from point A to point B. Preventing the theft of your bike can save you precious time and money while protecting the investment you’ve made in your bike. These are things you can do to make your bike a less likely target for thieves.

  1. Cover your bike with identifying markers. From unique graphics and bright colors, to etchings in the bike that indicate you as the owners, there are a variety of things you can do that will make it easy for you to identify your bike. That means it can be traced and makes it a less attractive target for thieves. The bolder and more obvious the markings, the less attractive the bike becomes.
  2. Use quality locks to secure your bike. Far too often people will invest in top quality chains while using an inexpensive lock to secure the bike. The chain is only as good as the lock. If thieves can break the lock in a matter of seconds, they’ve just netted a great bike AND an excellent chain in the bargain. Armored locks work well in this situation as they are heavier than most cable locks and even more difficult to cut through than chain locks, making them completely unattractive to the average thief.
