Yeah cheap padlocks are crap, easily can open by hard hit.
Go for reputable and branded one
all locks branded reputable or not, still affected by this bump key.
its a global threat that dont have proper solutions yet.

my advice, get yourself a Comprehensive Bike Insurance.
if your bike is carnap, then insurance will pay for it :)

Yes the above shown for the cylinder knob lock set which is easily open, not on the padlocks. I am not saying the reputable one can't be break in, but it may take longer time to break the good rather the cheap one
It is compulsory to take up the insurance in here, only depends what premium are you taking

Best padlock wont do any good if the bandits are given enough time to sit beside your bike and think over how to disassemble all your security device.
What a mess..... hope that wont happen to me ....
Insurance is an option but coz we have to sacrifice some.

Thanks for the concern, don't DIY. Scream for help but what happen if underground car park is where human causalities are minimal
The only weapon is the helmet!!!!!!!!!!!!
 

Mas Catoer

Super Veteran
Yes.
But s'times when follow the rule of correct use of helmet, I got little headache. especially after distance riding. Feel like after you put your head into a tight box.
mebi 100 bucks helmet will helps right.

I just use that cheap helmets, if were to use the expensive one. Have to carry around. Mine just hang on the bike
But when riding at high speed have to make sure the tighten the strap, if not fly off it goes!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's it..! it's funny to carry a helmet around.
I used to have my more than 15 bucks helmet lost in parking area. It's been 3 times. But, just keep buying one. then the last one ist lasting till now. 9 months i think.
If in my office parking area we might get the replacment from parking insurance.
Well correct helmet make us feel more confident in riding (not speeding hehehe)

It is not funny here to carry around expensive helmet down here.Most people do that and only cheap helmets are being hanged, unless the parking lot guarantee for that
Better be safe then sorry!!!!!!!!!
