A simple guide to keeping your electric bicycle secure
Keeping your electric bike secure is entirely within your control, but the most important thing is knowing which locks offer maximum security, and using a combination of locks that will deter a thief.
A well made lock takes time and power tools to break. Cheaper locks can be pried apart in seconds. Our staff have been using the Abus 770 for several months and it has worked great. The alarm function is a great option to help deter would-be thieves. Bluetooth simplifies locking and unlocking your ebike when you're on the go
Another valid concern is the removal of valuable parts from your bike when parked. Make part removal difficult by locking components onto your bike, including wheels, seatpost, seat, even the stem and handlebars. HexLox makes a great product for this purpose, and they work well to reduce "grab and go" component theft.
Heads up San Francisco riders. Ebike theft is up! And theft from garages is the most common place where bikes are being lost. Why? Because garages offer privacy to theives, and your ebike offers swift getaway. There is a third reason: we rarely secure our ebike to something stationary in a garage. Here's one solution:
Most garages are extremely easy for thieves to break into. The below locking solutions will ensure that your garage is adequately protected.
• SureLock garage deadbolt: Works with automatic doors, sensor disengages lock when using remote.
• Garage Shield - blocks attempts at pulling the emergency release of the door. You are still able to pull the release from the inside. This with the zip tie should stop most quick attempts.
