Combined Bike Alarm and Bike Lock
It's a little more expensive than our other offerings, but this little beauty has a 12mm (almost 1/2 an inch) steel cable which requires a thief to have serious bolt-cutters! As recommended in our article on bike theft, an effective anti-theft strategy will include two different locks and a siren. This gets you 2/3 of the way there with an exceptionally strong lock. Your second lock should be of a different type, forcing the thief to have two sets of tools - if the siren doesn't put him off first. See similar products in the tab below for options. Basic Product Specification:
- Material: Steel
- Size: 12 x 1200mm - 1/2 inch x 47 inches
- Loud 105db alarm
Anti-theft Bicycle Steel U Lock
U-Locks are a serious deterrent to thieves, but of course they can still be defeated by a well-equipped criminal even though they are hard to cut through.They are also quite big and take up space in panniers, (if that's the way you carry them), but of course, there's always a trade-off for security. Having said that, this is a great lock which we recommend in conjunction with our two-lock and alarm strategy, which significantly reduces the risk of bike theft.
- Material: Steel
- Size: U lock Internal Length: 5.9 inches U lock External Width: 3.5 inches
- Rubber surface

Combination Steel Cable Bike Lock
Combination locks are (we have found through testing) no less secure than locks with physical keys. Before adding this type of lock to PedalDeals, we experimented with several and looked on the web for 'easy' ways to crack them - without success - none of the methods we tried worked on our locks. One suggested method involved looking for gaps between the digits as the numbers were rotated. While this might be true for poor quality locks, it's most certainly not true for the ones we have tested. This lock is specified as follows:
- 6mm - 1/5th Inch x 1200mm - 47 inch
- Weight: 200g - 7Oz
- Steel cable sheathed in environmental PVC
Anti-Theft Bike Alarm At a Great Price
If you've read our article on Bike Security and Theft, you'll know that we state pretty clearly that deterrence is a huge factor in preventing the theft of your bicycle. That's because no lock is completely invulnerable to smart thieves with powerful tools. A bike alarm should be an integral part of your protection scheme. To overcome this (as far as we can) we recommend using two different locks as well as a bicycle alarm such as this one here. Two different locks mean that the thief needs two sets of different tools, but add the alarm as well and the chances of deterring even a determined thief are even better. The alarm has an internal movement-sensitive switch which activates a loud siren when moved. Here's the basic specification for this model:
- 4 digital code, only the user can unlock.
- Selectable sensitivity: High-Middle-Low.
- Low power consumption to allow the battery a long life.
- Easy to install
- Power supply: 1 x 6F22 9V battery( not included)
- Dimensions: 9.5x6.5x3.7cm(approx)
- Color: Black/Red
