Each week we get reports of push bikes being stolen even though they are secured and left in busy areas. Owners need to invest in strong locks and chains which make cutting them difficult. Cutting equipment will need to be heavier and the time needed increased, thus making the chances of the thief being noticed and challenged more likely. If you have an expensive bike it makes sense to invest in a good quality lock.
