And don't forget, even the best bike lock is worthless if it's not used correctly.

Thanks for all the great advice, I bought the U Lock. I like the idea of using it as a weapon. emoticon

U-locks can also come in handy as a weapon. I know of one person that was able to fend of a biting dog with one.

Those U-locks are pretty indestructible and I recommend them. They're also heavy, so if you're going to the same place over and over again, do what my co-workers do and leave the lock at your destination so you don't have to carry it. Most other locks can be cut if someone really wants to have a go at it. Just depends on how big you want to go. Bottom line though, I like the U-lock.

That cat photo with the lime is hysterical!

Hey All,

I was looking at some bike locks and I don't know which one to choose. My bike is really old but it gets me around and I'd hate for it to get stolen, I plan on cycling a lot this years and the odd time lock it up if need be.

I've seen the U shaped locks that have a key, then there's the chain locks that have either key or number lock.
Any advice would be great.
Thanks
Giggles
