How to Keep Your Cargo Bike Safe From Marauders January 08 2016

So you've decided to buy a Babboe City or Gazelle Cabby cargo bike but where do you store it? Like many city dwellers you live in a row home or apartment building without a garage or access to a back yard. Your only choice is to park it out front but with the threat of bike theft you don't want to put your new investment at risk. That's why we sell the ABUS Granit Floor Anchor. It mounts securely to the sidewalk with four thick expanding bolts that once properly installed aren't going anywhere and has a hardened steel shackle that's large enough to fit a hefty ABUS chain lock (we have an assortment to choose from) or two smaller locks. You'll need a heavy duty drill to install. Don't have one and you live within a few miles from the shop? For an additional fee we can arrange to install it for you (ask for details.)
