Yup, thats about the same setup I've got. And a few braided cables as well, running through my older frames/bikes etc.Travis Bickle said:Go to a locksmith and get some hrdened chain and a heavy duty lock, mines a Master 6721 and it can be keyed to different keys.
Don't bother. Ride your bike and enjoy your rides. If we try to take protective measures against every possible threat to our safety and security we might as well not bother leaving the house. Common sense is the best security. Is it POSSIBLE you might be jumped by a thug in the woods... Sure, its possible. But likely enough to warrant buying mace or something... Not really, unless there is a rash of on-trail bike theft.hamachi said:whoa, that bike-jack thing has me freaking out... i mean, i can totally see it being done -- just wait in the bushes in a deserted area towards the end of a climb... the rider will most likely be fatigued and cannot put up much of a fight if i run out there, push him off, and ride his bike down the way he came from...
should i get some mace for security? any thoughts? sorry to jack this thread...
my frame is only a touch over 7lbsMCtigre said:Benja55,
A diff. topic, Benja, are you still liking the 66sl. I am getting a Z1light. Not as burly, but Iam hoping it will be enogh for my 160lbs frame.
Oh I hear you. You've gotta protect the goods. I'd bolt an eyelet to your rig if there isn't one and lock things in with a sizable chain. I've had $6k bikes stolen before, locked up tight and all that. It SUCKS A$$.MCtigre said:Benja55,
I agree with you comments. My reason for this post was to see what products might work best at securing my bike in the bed of my truck. These bikes, like I said before are expensive and I dont want someone taking it if I turn my back for 30 sec and its gone.
Heh, "like" isn't the word. I LOVE my 66SL. LOVE IT. Its plush as hell and just blasts through the rough stuff. Calling it confidence inspiring is an understatement. IMHO, its the perfect fork on the Nomad.MCtigre said:A diff. topic, Benja, are you still liking the 66sl.
Very good choice. Should take some real effort, even with a Dremel.Travis Bickle said:Go to a locksmith and get some hrdened chain and a heavy duty lock, mines a Master 6721 and it can be keyed to different keys.
