Choose the Right Bike Lock for Your Needs
Finding the right lock for your bicycle will make it easier for you to get around town. Though all bike locks from DICK'S Sporting Goods offer excellent protection, there are some major differences to consider. Here are the three main types of bike locks:
- U-Locks: Featuring a strong U-shaped bar, these locks are extremely popular and are a good mix of portability and security. They are extremely difficult to cut through and, if used correctly, provide little room to be pried open.
- Cable Locks: These are lightweight and offer greater flexibility with locking locations, though they can be cut. They aren't a great choice for high-crime areas. Some U-Locks feature an accessory cable for extra protection.
- Chains: A sturdy chain can't be broken with bolt cutters. Paired with bike pad locks, chains are the best defense against theft, though they can be heavy and bulky to transport.
