It Sucks To Get Your Bike Stolen get a really good lock and your chances will be minimized. As in most cities, bicycle theft is rampant in Philadelphia and it's not just shiny new bikes thieves are after, they'll steal that rusty old MTB the one with the squeaky brakes that belonged to your grandma too. Bottom line, EVERY bike is vulnerable if it isn't locked properly and with a strong lock. We have an assortment of great locks by ABUS, a German company in the security business since 1924. They make conventional U and chain locks as well as the less conventional but our favorite Bordo folding lock pictured above. Prices start at $30 for a mid-security U lock but don't skimp; you should get the best lock you can afford, one that'll give you some peace of mind. We're happy to have ABUS joining us again at the Philadelphia Bike Expo this year, November 8th & 9th at the Convention Center.
