The police will be security marking and registering bikes at the shop from 12 noon until 2pm on Sunday 24th November.
Bike theft is always a problem – police security marking and registration may deter a thief and can help you get your bike back if it is found after being stolen. We sell DIY bike registration marking and registration kits, but when done by the police the service is free.
Locks and security items on special offer
We are also offering 10% off all locks and security skewers at present.
A good lock (and preferably two good locks!) can be a real deterrent to a thief. Security skewers can reduce the chance of having your wheels stolen. The best way to determine the level of security offered by a lock is to check out its rating under the ‘Sold Secure’ assessment scheme – ratings run from Bronze to Gold with the Gold rating being the most secure. We stock Abus, Hip-lok and Squire locks.
Quick release skewers are great for taking off wheels – useful when you get a puncture. However they also make your wheels vulnerable to theft. Wheels – especially rear wheels – can be expensive to replace when you add in the cost of tyres, cassettes, tubes, rim tape and potentially a new chain too.
