If you do not have enough space to park your bike behind a locked door, you must

make sure you lock it. Some best road bike locks are awful because they are the cable

locks which can be cut with a pair of scissors. Though at least having a lock is much

better than no lock, as a bike owner you must be aware of the protection it offers when

minutes at least and this time is good enough to stop an opportunist thief.

to make extra efforts to reach and break it. Cheap road bike easy access of the lock to

the thief implies higher chances of theft. You may need to oil the lock occasionally to

prevent it from seizing. Put a bit of oil into the holes and open and close it repeatedly for

a few times. It will keep your lock in a good condition for a long period of time.
