There are creative ways to address bike security, 8 are covered in this previous post, however in the end, any serious commuter likely needs to throw down for a manufactured lock or locks. I have used a Beast Chain as well as a Kryptonite cable lock, but I have never owned a U-lock of any kind before.
The fine folks at Pinhead Components contacted us and asked if we would be interested in putting some of their products through the paces. This package arrived . . .
Due to the double whammy of a bike path that is an icy mess and streets that are constricted due to snow banks, I have not been able to ride much in recent weeks. As I put these components through their paces I will report back. I can say that the unique attribute is a key like none I have seen before.
Readers who have experience with Pinhead Components are welcome to weigh in with comments.
