    Not super secure, but very handy.

    I like this little lock. I wouldn't trust it against a determined thief, but just enough to deter an opportunist whilst on a cafe stop. Any reasonable pliers would cut through the wire, but it is small enough to live in my small saddle bag, so I've always got it with me. A D lock is so much better, but such a hassle to carry.

    Small comfort for short stops

    Got this for when I am on a sportive and need the gent's! ! Easy to stash away. Some piece of mind but this is just a little deterrent nothing more. If only the cable could be a little thicker this would be a great product.

    Use it but don't trust it

    This is a great lock for those quick stops at the cafe and will protect your bike from the opportunist thief, but it certainly wont stop the 'tooled-up' tea-leaf. At the end of the day, if other bikes aren't locked up but yours is, it's more than likely yours will still be there when you've finished your flapjack. Whatever you do, don't use it to lock your bike up in the shed overnight, as bitter experience has taught me, even thicker cables are a piece of cake to the pro-and they don't leave crumbs!

    Cafe Race combo cable lock

    I bought this to take on holiday to secure my new skis. I haven't used it in the mountains yet, but it seems well made and is very light and convenient to use. The only problem so far is that the instructions for changing the combination don't appear to work - I will keep trying, but it locks ok with the factory setting. Just what I wanted as an opportunist thief deterrent

    Great light lock

    I like to travel light, so there is no chance I am bolting a D-lock to the frame of my bike. This lock fits in a pocket or bag easily and is secure enough while you pop in to the supermarket or shop. I wouldn't leave my bike chained up outside at night with it, but its great if you need to lock up quickly while you are getting a coffee.

    Cafe lock.

    Great little lock, and it really is small and light - length and width is smaller than a credit card. OK, it's only going to deter an opportunist thief but it isn't intended for anything more than a coffee stop. I've actually bought a second one as my partner kept 'borrowing' my first lock.

    Bike Locks Guide

    What type of bike lock do I need?

    Cable Lock | Use in low crime areas

    These are the lightest bike locks. They’re very flexible and easy to carry in your pocket or on your frame. Great as a visual deterrent or secondary lock to fix quick release components to your frame.

    Combination Lock | Use in low crime areas

    These are cable locks with a 3 or 4-digit combination rather than a key lock. They are great if you don't want to worry about forgetting keys.

    Chain Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas

    Chain locks are versatile. Thick chain links are great against bolt cutters. You can secure your bike to a range of bulky and unusual objects.

    D-Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas

    D-locks are strong and often made from hardened steel. You get 360-degree protection for your frame. Locking mechanisms can resist picking and drilling while the D shaping makes leverage style attacks difficult.

    Ground anchor | Use in high crime areas

    Ground anchors are immovable platforms you fix to your garage floor or wall. When used with a strong chain lock you can fix your frame to the anchor. These offer the best protection for home storage.

    How heavy is a bike lock?

    In general, the stronger a bike lock, the heavier it will be.

    Cable / Combo locks

    These range from around 400g up to 1.25kg depending on the thickness and material used in the twisted cable. These are the lightest bike locks for easy transport.

    Chain locks

    Chain locks range from around 1kg up to 7kg for the thickest and toughest chain locks. Choose a mid-range weight if you're commuting daily to blend strength and weight.

    D Locks

    D-locks tend to be 1kg up to 2.5kgs and are more compact for daily use than a chunky chain lock.

    What is Sold Secure?

    A great way to determine the quality of a bike lock is to see if it is Sold Secure Rated. This is a third party, independent rating system.

    An approved lock is graded as Gold, Silver or Bronze. The rating is chosen by how long it takes to break the lock and the tools needed to break it.

    If you're planning on insuring your bike, many insurers will state you need a Sold Secure rated lock to make a successful claim.

    Typically a bronze rating covers a bike up to the value of £500, silver up to £1,000 and gold for any bike worth over £1,000.

    These values vary between insurance providers so check the terms and conditions of your provider.
