Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Bikeregistry.com bike lock and chain is good! (And register your bike too)

I just registered my bike on Bikeregistry.com, but I've had their bike lock for a couple years so I thought I'd let you know what I thought of it.

Their photos:



It's very solid. I think the lock is a better design than the standard padlock. The bar is not exposed so there's nothing to cut! They also have another lock that looks even more secure:



The chain is quite beefy and weighs like 10 pounds. "3/8" PEWAG security chain, made in Austria". It's a meter long, long enough for me to wrap around my waist. After a few days of riding with it I didn't notice the weight.

If you are looking for mega chain lock, this one is great I think, and it's pretty inexpensive too ($34.95+ $.44 shipping) Bikeregistry.com also has a few other small products like a saddle lock wire for a couple bucks.

And of course you can register your bike for free on this site and get some stickers so the good person who finds it can contact you!

Anyone else use this site to register? I think I need to contact the police station to see what other registration I could do with them too.

I never have to use a lock, and I love it.

Posting your e-mail address on a public forum is always a great idea. What's your social security number?

Looks like a good lock, but I have a hard time believing this registry thing has any significant power in recovering stolen bikes.

Don't you know the equation, by now?

Weight of bike + weight of lock = Const.

1) I use this email address specifically for posting on forums, and keep my "non-public" email address private.

2) My social security number is the same as my email address to remember it easily.

If anyone has one of these chains, please kindly drop me a line.

Many, many thanks!

Reviving this thread is probably the way to find one.
