1117s How To Keep Your Bike Safe | A Guide To Preventing Bicycle Theft images and subtitles

We all know how cool mountain bikes are,but actually that's a bit of a problembecause they're highly sought-after by thievesbecause they're very easy to sell onand make good cash.Now, even if you keep your bike at homethere's a lot more to keeping your bike safethan simply chucking it in the garageand closing the door.So, we're going to take you throughsome of the best security tipsfor keeping an eye on your pride and joy.(high tech tone)There are a lot of different elementsthat go into keeping your bike safe and secureso I'm going to break this video down into a few sections.It's going to include where you keep your bikeand where you store your bike,how you lock your bike upand the things that you lock it up with,and then some additional protectionand other things you might not necessarily think ofon a day to day basis.Let's start with where you keep your bikes.(downtempo music)Depending on where you live,you're probably going to keep your bikeeither inside your house, in the garden,perhaps in the shed or some sort of outbuilding,in a garage, or perhaps in some kind of workshopif you have something on the side of your house.Now, even if your bikes are kept inside your house,you're still at risk because most bike crimeis actually targeted,so that suggests that perhaps people follow youto where you live or they know where you liveor things like that.So, it's up to you to make sure your houseor wherever you keep your bikeis as secure as it can possibly be.So, with basics with the house,obviously means having decent security on your house.That means good locks, modern lockson the front and back of the house.A house alarm is a great idea to have.And of course you're going to need things like insurancefor your bikes which we'll go intoa little bit later in the video.Now if you keep your bike in the garage outside,then there's a few things you need to take into account.Obviously a concrete building is going to be fairly secure,but the weak point is going to be the door.So, you need to make sure your door is strongand has a good lock on it,and it's definitely worth consideringhaving a garage door defender.Now a defender is a kind of additional lockto mean that the door can't actually open.Now many mountain bikers use the common garden shedto keep their bikes in.This is absolutely fine if you have a secure gardenbecause most likely people have to come through your housein order to get there,but if you have any sort of side accessor any way that people can get into your garden,then you definitely need to make sure your shedis really, really secure,so you're going to have some decent sort ofshed locks on there.Something like this, a quality disc-style lock.It's not going to corrode when you leave it outsidein the garden, and the key mechanism works really well.But more importantly, you really should havean anchor point in there.Something to lock the bikes to,something solid, like a purpose built ground anchor.If you're going to have one of thesein the shed in the outside,then you really need to have a concrete base.These are designed to be used outside and inside.They're corrosion resistant, and once you fit themyou can pretty much forget about them,so it will be perfectly sensibleto lock your bike to one of these,and then you can have some kind of shelter over your bike.So, you could just have a sheet to keep the moistureaway from your bike,or you could go the whole hog and get yourselfa dedicated bike storage unit.So, these can be in the form of metal cupboardor metal lockers.There's a company called Asgard that makereally industrially strong ones,and they're compatible with things like ground anchors.You can even get ones that got electricity pointsin there for charging e-bikes and your bike lightsand things like that.Now, once your bikes can be locked upand safe on the inside of your house,it doesn't necessarily mean your house is safe.So something actually quite nasty to talk aboutis a thing called the thieves code.Now, if you want to learn more about this,I'm putting a link underneath this videoto Abus Cycling,so that is the general manufacturerof locks and all things bike security.They've written a whole article about the thieves code,so I suggest you read that.But what is the thieves code?Let's just put this into perspective.You might be coming home from a riding tripwith your mates and you don't realize,but you've been followed by someone in a car.Now that person will note where you liveand then they might make some kind of markingon the outside of your house for another thief,or another person to come back and then latercorrelate that to which house it is that has the bikes inand then let themselves in and nick your stuff.Now this is also something to do with organized crime.There's loads of different sort ofacronyms and hieroglyphicsand codes and stuff that they use,but just to show you a few that have been used in the past.If you see any markings like thison the outside of your building, like near the front door,or somewhere that can be seen easily passing by,take a photo of them and report them to the police,and then make sure you erase themand just sort of pay attention.Be very vigilant with security.Pretty nasty things to deal with.(downtempo music)Now, let's take a look at locks.Now, there's a few different styles of locks availableon the market and there's various different price points.My advise really is to not skimp.Buy the strongest and heaviest duty locks you possibly canbecause really, even though they cost a few hundred quid,they might seem excessive,how much is your bike worth?So, let's take a look at the three main types of locksyou can get and how you might use them at home.So, first up, you're going to get a U-lock,sometimes called a D-lock.Now, whilst these are incredibly strongand they're available at different price points,you may as well take advantage of gettinga bigger and stronger chain lock for home usebecause whilst these are excellent,they're very limited on how much you can do with them.Great for locking your bike around a lamp post or similar,and great for mounting to your bike,but not necessarily the best ones for home.For home, you may as well go all in and get yourselfa heavy duty chain lock.There's several brands on the marketand there's several styles, prices and options out there.Something else you might want to consideris getting a cable lock in addition.Now, cables are typically extender locks.You shouldn't use these in placeof one of the other mentioned locks.These are simply used to go through wheels and framesas much as possible to make making your bikesessentially the hardest thing to do.Now with locks, there's various different price pointsand standards of lock, depending on which country you're in.In UK and a lot of Europe,we use a thing called Sold Secure.There's a little label you'll findon the back of the packagingand it will be rated gold, silver or bronze.Bronze being the cheapest and gold being the highest.Now, those ratings correlate directly to the valueof the bike that you're locking up,and how much you're insurer may or may not pay out,in the event of it being stolen.So, it's really important to make sure you correlate thatand spend decent money on a lock to protect your bike.But like I say, all locks are goodand all locks are better than no locks,but for home take advantage of having a heavy duty chain.And save the D-locks and other style locksfor out and about.In addition to having the strongestand most secure locks you can,make sure that you use them correctlybecause how you use them actually is as importantas having a good lock in the first place.Now, all locks will come with a master keyand at least one spare key.Perhaps two or three.Make sure you note down the number of the keyand register it if the lock company you're buying fromhas a way of registering online,because if you do manage to lose the keys,that's the only way you're going to be able to retrieve it,which is why you need to make a note of the numberas well as registering it.Now, make sure you split your keys up as well,so your day to day keys you might have,like myself, I have two or three different locks.I keep those keys together in a secret locationthat is not in the same room as I keep my bikesfor obvious reasons.And make sure your spare keys are kept somewhere elsein the house.Keep them safe, preferably in a safe,or something like that.Make sure you lock your bike to something immovable.It could be a heavy duty work standthat's bolted to the ground.It could be part of your house, or preferably,a ground anchor that's specifically designed for that,but we're going to get to that in a minute.Now, also, you need to make surewhen you do lock your bikes up,you think about a few things becausethe way the thieves will be breaking locks,there's various different methods.So, sometimes they may freeze the locksand smash them with a hammer.They still have to break the lock at that point.Now if the locking mechanism is quite close to your frame,it's quite unlikely that they're going to use that method.Another method might be to lever the locks openwith a big bar or to use a bottle jack,the sort of jack you get on a car,so try not to give them the spacein order to do that.And the final thing, to get around angle grindersand bolt croppers is to make sure that your locksaren't on the ground or any position where they can getany point of leverage on them.Basically make it as hard as possible for someoneto get to the locks.And the same if you have an anchor point,make sure it's tucked away.Don't leave it in the middle of the roomwhere they can work on it.You want to make this hard for them.(downtempo music)Now, to make sure you're locks are as effective as possible,the best way is to have a dedicated anchor pointand that means having some sort of ground anchorlike one of these.Or perhaps a wall anchor.You can mount these on the wall,or you can get a dedicated wall anchors like this one.Your bike actually hangs from this,so if you're limited on space,you'll get your bike out the way.These can work out quite well.There's various different types on the market.As you can see, I've got a ground anchor in placedown here with a big heavy duty gold secure lockon this one.I use this in combination with a whole bunch of other lockswhich I basically daisy chain my bikes togetherand then I lock them to this lockwhich is locked to the floor.So, ideally there's as many locks in place as possible.(downtempo music)CCTV, now this might sound like a bit of an extreme optionbut if you have a garage or an outbuildingthat is separate from your house,then this might be the ideal solution for you,and it's also a very good deterrent.Now, there's a lot of different systems availableon the market, operate in very different ways.No one system is the best for any one person,so you got to identify what works best with your property,what it can see, the conditions it's going to operate in,and of course how usable it is.So, just for example, these two here.This one has a hard drive that's got a monitor on itand records on to this.It has an encrypted radio signal from the camera to this.So, in real time it is filming.At any point it can loop around,so much like you would have a dash camera in the car,so you're not having to use new cards all the time.And you can also access those remotely from apps.So this is a really cool system.It's an infrared camera on here.It will work outside, no problem.It's fully waterproof.This is an all-in-one.This is a little bit different.This one works on its own wi-fi signal,or it can go for an own LANsort of ethernet cable system,depending on how you want to set it up.There's a card on the actual camera itself,but also via cloud services and your mobile app.You can get all of the information directly to your phonewhich means if anything happensyou can screen grab and send that directlyto the authorities.So, there are a lot of different systems out there.And of course you could go the whole hogand have a fully-wired system,but something in particular that is definitely worthfactoring in is the type of lensesthat they operate on and the resolution of them.So, I would say at minimumyou want something that's full HD.You want something that's going to work on infraredso you can see at night.And also, you might want something like a wide angleand also a standard angle.The reason for that is a wide angle whilst is very goodfor seeing a huge area of space,it could quite hard for facial recognition,whereas if you had a standard lensaimed at your one weak point,let's just say it's in the garage,the weak point is the door.There's more chance you're going to geta decent resolution still image of the culprit,so just take that into account.Like I said, there's a lot of different systems.Make sure whatever you get works for you.(downtempo music)Insurance, now you'd be a mad manto not have your bicycles insured.They cost so much money these days.You'd really be an idiot not to,so definitely look into all the options available to you.There's various bike-specific insurance companies,but more often than not,you can add onto your house insurance,but they will be very specificabout the policy and the payout termsand all that sort of stuff.What you'll normally find is thatthey will want to know descriptionof where your bike is locked.They'll want to know the details of the building it's in,if it has windows, all that sort of stuff.And if you have a ground anchor,they'll want a photo of the ground anchor being used.They'll want to see what sort of locks you've got.They'll want the serial numbersand things like that of your bikes.So, make sure you have all of that information to handto get the best possible quotes.And definitely shop around as wellbecause it's pretty unlikely the first place you ringis going to give you the most competitive quote,but I can assure you it's definitely worth havingdecent insurance for your bikes.It might be really cool in the comments belowto help all your other viewers outif anyone can add any adviceon various different countries like the USor maybe in Germany or wherever you're watching from,what sort of situations and what insurance companieshave worked best for you.Let's try and make this sort of a group sort of a thing,so everyone helps each other.Let us know in the comments underneath.(downtempo music)Now, in Europe we have a system availablecalled data tag.It's essentially a forensic marking system for your bike,and once it's marked it can be tracked virtually anywhere.It dramatically reduces the chancesof you losing your bike if it is stolen.They can be retrieved.And it's one of the ones that's actually enforcedby a lot of insurance companies.They will quite often only insure youif you have data tag in place.That's certainly for UK and Europe.I know in the US there's a similar GPS systemcalled SureLock.Again, there's different options available to you.But definitely check out all of the systems.At the end of the day, you want to make itas hard as possible to have your bike nicked.And they come with markings for the bikethat display that it's got a data tag system installed to itand they're tamper-proof as well.And those alone can be a deterrentfrom having your bike nicked.So, definitely look into things like that.(downtempo music)Now, you can do everything that we've mentioned so far,and still you have to apply some common senseto make sure your bike stays safe.So firstly, you need to make sure that your entranceto your house is secure because if that's not securepeople can still get in.And likewise, if you're aware that there are people aroundthat can identify that you're on a good bikewhen you return home, maybe do a lap, go around the block.Don't always return straight into your houseso they know where you live.The same applies if you're leaving maybe a trail centerwhen you come home from riding,you notice anyone following you,although this might be a super rare occasion,or you might not have even heard of this happening,it does happen so just be vigilant about this sort of stuff.The same applies as to where you're putting your bikein the car, perhaps in your driveway,or unpacking your bike.You never know who's watching,so just take care of that sort of thing.You might live in a perfectly nice neighborhood,but you can still get dodgy people driving pastand just take note of the house number you lived in,so be very careful with that sort of stuff.Now, another common sense thing istake note of the frame number of your bike.You'll be surprised how few people actually do this.Whenever you get a bike there is a frame numberon the frame.It is sometimes and quite often on the bottom bracket shellbut it can be inside the rear dropout.There's a number of different locations it can be on a frameand it's completely unique to your bike,so that means your bike can be traced if the bike is found,and it has been stolen for example,and you will need that number for insurance purposes,and you'll also need it if your bike does go missingto report to the police.So, please make sure you note down your frame number.So, when you have a good setup.You got your ground anchors,you got your bikes daisy chained togetherand locked to the anchor,take some photo evidence of that,and also make sure you have up to date photosof all of your bikes if you have more than one,or of your bike if you only have one.And the reason for that is if it does go missing,straight away you have an imageyou can share on social media,or you can share it with the policeor anyone relevant to help you retrieve your bike.But whilst you're at it,make sure you turn off your GPS on your phoneif you're taking pictures of your bike at your property.So, any of you that take photos for bike cable,any of you that take photosfor Bike Vault on the Dirt Shed show,make sure you turn off location serviceson your phone when you use the camera,or at least disable them just for your camera.And the same goes if you use Stravaor any sort of ride tracking appsthat are available out there.There's a lot of them.Make sure that you don't use it from your front door.You can set privacy zones on Strava,but I would still not completely trust that.I would go for a ride first,then start your official ride tracking,and then return at that point, and then return home.You really don't want any way that you can be tracedback to where you live.Now, just a few last little things to say.If you have heavy duty power toolsin your workshop for example,it's a good idea to keep them locked awayor perhaps in a different locationfrom where you lock your bikes,just in the event that something bad could happen.If you have any of those sort of feelings about any stuff,use your instincts, you know?Close your blinds at night so people can't see in.Make sure you got cages over your windows.Lock your doors, use CCTV, have alarms, have anchor points.Look after your pride and joy.There you go.You can never be too secure,so make sure you look after your bikes.Get some good quality locks.Make sure your bikes are insured.Perhaps even look into the realm of CCTV.Lock it, don't lose it.All right, well there you go.That's the basics of home securityand all the things you should be factoring into make sure your bikes are nice and safe.For a couple of useful videos,well

< start="49.82" dur="1.49">Depending on where you live,>

< start="51.31" dur="1.197">you're probably going to keep your bike>

< start="52.507" dur="3.103">either inside your house, in the garden,>

< start="55.61" dur="2.66">perhaps in the shed or some sort of outbuilding,>

< start="58.27" dur="3.65">in a garage, or perhaps in some kind of workshop>

< start="61.92" dur="2.2">if you have something on the side of your house.>

< start="64.12" dur="2.67">Now, even if your bikes are kept inside your house,>

< start="66.79" dur="3.45">you're still at risk because most bike crime>

< start="76.04" dur="0.86">or things like that.>

< start="76.9" dur="2.21">So, it's up to you to make sure your house>

< start="79.11" dur="1.16">or wherever you keep your bike>

< start="80.27" dur="2.59">is as secure as it can possibly be.>

< start="82.86" dur="1.28">So, with basics with the house,>

< start="115.44" dur="2.16">having a garage door defender.>

< start="117.6" dur="2.04">Now a defender is a kind of additional lock>

< start="119.64" dur="2.44">to mean that the door can't actually open.>

< start="122.08" dur="2.73">Now many mountain bikers use the common garden shed>

< start="124.81" dur="1.3">to keep their bikes in.>

< start="126.11" dur="2.9">This is absolutely fine if you have a secure garden>

< start="129.01" dur="2.817">because most likely people have to come through your house>

< start="138.053" dur="2.547">then you definitely need to make sure your shed>

< start="140.6" dur="1.81">is really, really secure,>

< start="142.41" dur="1.536">so you're going to have some decent sort of>

< start="143.946" dur="1.984">shed locks on there.>

< start="145.93" dur="3.02">Something like this, a quality disc-style lock.>

< start="148.95" dur="2.42">It's not going to corrode when you leave it outside>

< start="151.37" dur="4.01">in the garden, and the key mechanism works really well.>

< start="157.88" dur="1.14">an anchor point in there.>

< start="159.02" dur="1.42">Something to lock the bikes to,>

< start="195.49" dur="2.2">really industrially strong ones,>

< start="197.69" dur="2.88">and they're compatible with things like ground anchors.>

< start="200.57" dur="1.95">You can even get ones that got electricity points>

< start="202.52" dur="2.53">in there for charging e-bikes and your bike lights>

< start="205.05" dur="1.17">and things like that.>

< start="206.22" dur="1.543">Now, once your bikes can be locked up>

< start="207.763" dur="1.877">and safe on the inside of your house,>

< start="209.64" dur="2.5">it doesn't necessarily mean your house is safe.>

< start="212.14" dur="2.22">So something actually quite nasty to talk about>

< start="214.36" dur="2.65">is a thing called the thieves code.>

< start="217.01" dur="1.69">Now, if you want to learn more about this,>

< start="218.7" dur="2.02">I'm putting a link underneath this video>

< start="220.72" dur="1.34">to Abus Cycling,>

< start="222.06" dur="1.66">so that is the general manufacturer>

< start="223.72" dur="2.19">of locks and all things bike security.>

< start="225.91" dur="2.26">They've written a whole article about the thieves code,>

< start="228.17" dur="1.88">so I suggest you read that.>

< start="230.05" dur="1.52">But what is the thieves code?>

< start="231.57" dur="1.6">Let's just put this into perspective.>

< start="233.17" dur="2.16">You might be coming home from a riding trip>

< start="235.33" dur="1.86">with your mates and you don't realize,>

< start="237.19" dur="2.31">but you've been followed by someone in a car.>

< start="239.5" dur="2.52">Now that person will note where you live>

< start="242.02" dur="1.88">and then they might make some kind of marking>

< start="243.9" dur="2.47">on the outside of your house for another thief,>

< start="246.37" dur="2.56">or another person to come back and then later>

< start="248.93" dur="2.73">correlate that to which house it is that has the bikes in>

< start="251.66" dur="2.2">and then let themselves in and nick your stuff.>

< start="253.86" dur="2.67">Now this is also something to do with organized crime.>

< start="256.53" dur="1.38">There's loads of different sort of>

< start="257.91" dur="2.01">acronyms and hieroglyphics>

< start="259.92" dur="2.39">and codes and stuff that they use,>

< start="262.31" dur="2.741">but just to show you a few that have been used in the past.>

< start="265.051" dur="2.359">If you see any markings like this>

< start="267.41" dur="2.29">on the outside of your building, like near the front door,>

< start="269.7" dur="2.747">or somewhere that can be seen easily passing by,>

< start="272.447" dur="2.563">take a photo of them and report them to the police,>

< start="275.01" dur="1.588">and then make sure you erase them>

< start="276.598" dur="2.002">and just sort of pay attention.>

< start="278.6" dur="2.3">Be very vigilant with security.>

< start="280.9" dur="1.655">Pretty nasty things to deal with.>

< start="282.555" dur="3.215">(downtempo music)>

< start="285.77" dur="2.23">Now, let's take a look at locks.>

< start="288" dur="2.47">Now, there's a few different styles of locks available>

< start="290.47" dur="3">on the market and there's various different price points.>

< start="293.47" dur="2.22">My advise really is to not skimp.>

< start="295.69" dur="4.15">Buy the strongest and heaviest duty locks you possibly can>

< start="299.84" dur="2.04">because really, even though they cost a few hundred quid,>

< start="301.88" dur="1.66">they might seem excessive,>

< start="303.54" dur="2.13">how much is your bike worth?>

< start="305.67" dur="3.15">So, let's take a look at the three main types of locks>

< start="308.82" dur="3.5">you can get and how you might use them at home.>

< start="312.32" dur="1.61">So, first up, you're going to get a U-lock,>

< start="313.93" dur="1.31">sometimes called a D-lock.>

< start="315.24" dur="2.3">Now, whilst these are incredibly strong>

< start="317.54" dur="2.62">and they're available at different price points,>

< start="320.16" dur="1.51">you may as well take advantage of getting>

< start="321.67" dur="2.69">a bigger and stronger chain lock for home use>

< start="324.36" dur="2.11">because whilst these are excellent,>

< start="326.47" dur="2.63">they're very limited on how much you can do with them.>

< start="329.1" dur="2.62">Great for locking your bike around a lamp post or similar,>

< start="331.72" dur="2.19">and great for mounting to your bike,>

< start="333.91" dur="2.6">but not necessarily the best ones for home.>

< start="336.51" dur="2.74">For home, you may as well go all in and get yourself>

< start="339.25" dur="1.96">a heavy duty chain lock.>

< start="341.21" dur="1.39">There's several brands on the market>

< start="342.6" dur="4.23">and there's several styles, prices and options out there.>

< start="346.83" dur="2.3">Something else you might want to consider>

< start="349.13" dur="2.28">is getting a cable lock in addition.>

< start="351.41" dur="2.51">Now, cables are typically extender locks.>

< start="353.92" dur="1.4">You shouldn't use these in place>

< start="355.32" dur="1.7">of one of the other mentioned locks.>

< start="357.02" dur="2.62">These are simply used to go through wheels and frames>

< start="359.64" dur="3.39">as much as possible to make making your bikes>

< start="363.03" dur="2.63">essentially the hardest thing to do.>

< start="365.66" dur="2.8">Now with locks, there's various different price points>

< start="368.46" dur="3.01">and standards of lock, depending on which country you're in.>

< start="371.47" dur="1.54">In UK and a lot of Europe,>

< start="373.01" dur="2.05">we use a thing called Sold Secure.>

< start="375.06" dur="1.11">There's a little label you'll find>

< start="376.17" dur="1.41">on the back of the packaging>

< start="377.58" dur="2.82">and it will be rated gold, silver or bronze.>

< start="380.4" dur="3.09">Bronze being the cheapest and gold being the highest.>

< start="383.49" dur="2.79">Now, those ratings correlate directly to the value>

< start="386.28" dur="1.73">of the bike that you're locking up,>

< start="388.01" dur="2.8">and how much you're insurer may or may not pay out,>

< start="390.81" dur="1.59">in the event of it being stolen.>

< start="392.4" dur="2.84">So, it's really important to make sure you correlate that>

< start="395.24" dur="4.08">and spend decent money on a lock to protect your bike.>

< start="399.32" dur="1.44">But like I say, all locks are good>

< start="400.76" dur="2.37">and all locks are better than no locks,>

< start="403.13" dur="3.52">but for home take advantage of having a heavy duty chain.>

< start="406.65" dur="2.07">And save the D-locks and other style locks>

< start="408.72" dur="1.83">for out and about.>

< start="410.55" dur="2.04">In addition to having the strongest>

< start="412.59" dur="1.87">and most secure locks you can,>

< start="414.46" dur="1.78">make sure that you use them correctly>

< start="416.24" dur="2.68">because how you use them actually is as important>

< start="418.92" dur="1.85">as having a good lock in the first place.>

< start="420.77" dur="2.7">Now, all locks will come with a master key>

< start="423.47" dur="1.74">and at least one spare key.>

< start="425.21" dur="1.71">Perhaps two or three.>

< start="426.92" dur="2.28">Make sure you note down the number of the key>

< start="429.2" dur="2.8">and register it if the lock company you're buying from>

< start="432" dur="1.73">has a way of registering online,>

< start="433.73" dur="2.13">because if you do manage to lose the keys,>

< start="435.86" dur="2.03">that's the only way you're going to be able to retrieve it,>

< start="437.89" dur="2.32">which is why you need to make a note of the number>

< start="440.21" dur="1.93">as well as registering it.>

< start="442.14" dur="2.19">Now, make sure you split your keys up as well,>

< start="444.33" dur="1.77">so your day to day keys you might have,>

< start="446.1" dur="2.15">like myself, I have two or three different locks.>

< start="448.25" dur="2.36">I keep those keys together in a secret location>

< start="450.61" dur="2.86">that is not in the same room as I keep my bikes>

< start="453.47" dur="1.21">for obvious reasons.>

< start="454.68" dur="2.826">And make sure your spare keys are kept somewhere else>

< start="457.506" dur="0.854">in the house.>

< start="458.36" dur="2.12">Keep them safe, preferably in a safe,>

< start="460.48" dur="1.01">or something like that.>

< start="461.49" dur="2.26">Make sure you lock your bike to something immovable.>

< start="463.75" dur="1.81">It could be a heavy duty work stand>

< start="465.56" dur="1.33">that's bolted to the ground.>

< start="466.89" dur="2.623">It could be part of your house, or preferably,>

< start="469.513" dur="2.647">a ground anchor that's specifically designed for that,>

< start="472.16" dur="2.24">but we're going to get to that in a minute.>

< start="474.4" dur="1.47">Now, also, you need to make sure>

< start="475.87" dur="1.8">when you do lock your bikes up,>

< start="477.67" dur="2.21">you think about a few things because>

< start="479.88" dur="1.85">the way the thieves will be breaking locks,>

< start="481.73" dur="1.69">there's various different methods.>

< start="483.42" dur="2.21">So, sometimes they may freeze the locks>

< start="485.63" dur="1.43">and smash them with a hammer.>

< start="487.06" dur="2.94">They still have to break the lock at that point.>

< start="490" dur="2.72">Now if the locking mechanism is quite close to your frame,>

< start="492.72" dur="3.03">it's quite unlikely that they're going to use that method.>

< start="495.75" dur="2.7">Another method might be to lever the locks open>

< start="498.45" dur="2.83">with a big bar or to use a bottle jack,>

< start="501.28" dur="1.29">the sort of jack you get on a car,>

< start="502.57" dur="2.07">so try not to give them the space>

< start="504.64" dur="1.47">in order to do that.>

< start="506.11" dur="2.56">And the final thing, to get around angle grinders>

< start="508.67" dur="2.31">and bolt croppers is to make sure that your locks>

< start="510.98" dur="2.56">aren't on the ground or any position where they can get>

< start="513.54" dur="2.038">any point of leverage on them.>

< start="515.578" dur="2.872">Basically make it as hard as possible for someone>

< start="518.45" dur="1.04">to get to the locks.>

< start="519.49" dur="2.11">And the same if you have an anchor point,>

< start="521.6" dur="1.46">make sure it's tucked away.>

< start="523.06" dur="1.05">Don't leave it in the middle of the room>

< start="524.11" dur="1.117">where they can work on it.>

< start="525.227" dur="1.798">You want to make this hard for them.>

< start="527.025" dur="2.975">(downtempo music)>

< start="530" dur="2.64">Now, to make sure you're locks are as effective as possible,>

< start="532.64" dur="2.847">the best way is to have a dedicated anchor point>

< start="535.487" dur="2.433">and that means having some sort of ground anchor>

< start="537.92" dur="1.01">like one of these.>

< start="538.93" dur="1.39">Or perhaps a wall anchor.>

< start="540.32" dur="1.23">You can mount these on the wall,>

< start="541.55" dur="3.13">or you can get a dedicated wall anchors like this one.>

< start="544.68" dur="1.25">Your bike actually hangs from this,>

< start="545.93" dur="1.113">so if you're limited on space,>

< start="547.043" dur="1.727">you'll get your bike out the way.>

< start="548.77" dur="1.985">These can work out quite well.>

< start="550.755" dur="2.176">There's various different types on the market.>

< start="552.931" dur="2.619">As you can see, I've got a ground anchor in place>

< start="555.55" dur="3.354">down here with a big heavy duty gold secure lock>

< start="558.904" dur="1.439">on this one.>

< start="560.343" dur="3.507">I use this in combination with a whole bunch of other locks>

< start="563.85" dur="2.38">which I basically daisy chain my bikes together>

< start="566.23" dur="1.85">and then I lock them to this lock>

< start="568.08" dur="1.64">which is locked to the floor.>

< start="569.72" dur="3.929">So, ideally there's as many locks in place as possible.>

< start="573.649" dur="3.281">(downtempo music)>

< start="576.93" dur="4.37">CCTV, now this might sound like a bit of an extreme option>

< start="581.3" dur="2.4">but if you have a garage or an outbuilding>

< start="583.7" dur="2.19">that is separate from your house,>

< start="585.89" dur="2.26">then this might be the ideal solution for you,>

< start="588.15" dur="2.45">and it's also a very good deterrent.>

< start="590.6" dur="2.14">Now, there's a lot of different systems available>

< start="592.74" dur="2.332">on the market, operate in very different ways.>

< start="595.072" dur="2.948">No one system is the best for any one person,>

< start="598.02" dur="3.34">so you got to identify what works best with your property,>

< start="601.36" dur="2.53">what it can see, the conditions it's going to operate in,>

< start="603.89" dur="2.42">and of course how usable it is.>

< start="606.31" dur="2.32">So, just for example, these two here.>

< start="608.63" dur="2.84">This one has a hard drive that's got a monitor on it>

< start="611.47" dur="1.72">and records on to this.>

< start="613.19" dur="3.55">It has an encrypted radio signal from the camera to this.>

< start="616.74" dur="2.21">So, in real time it is filming.>

< start="618.95" dur="1.46">At any point it can loop around,>

< start="620.41" dur="2.54">so much like you would have a dash camera in the car,>

< start="622.95" dur="2.137">so you're not having to use new cards all the time.>

< start="625.087" dur="3.213">And you can also access those remotely from apps.>

< start="628.3" dur="0.913">So this is a really cool system.>

< start="629.213" dur="2.047">It's an infrared camera on here.>

< start="631.26" dur="2.03">It will work outside, no problem.>

< start="633.29" dur="1.81">It's fully waterproof.>

< start="635.1" dur="1.03">This is an all-in-one.>

< start="636.13" dur="1.45">This is a little bit different.>

< start="637.58" dur="2.54">This one works on its own wi-fi signal,>

< start="640.12" dur="1.685">or it can go for an own LAN>

< start="641.805" dur="2.705">sort of ethernet cable system,>

< start="644.51" dur="1.96">depending on how you want to set it up.>

< start="646.47" dur="2.45">There's a card on the actual camera itself,>

< start="648.92" dur="3.68">but also via cloud services and your mobile app.>

< start="652.6" dur="2.06">You can get all of the information directly to your phone>

< start="654.66" dur="1.53">which means if anything happens>

< start="656.19" dur="1.75">you can screen grab and send that directly>

< start="657.94" dur="1.4">to the authorities.>

< start="659.34" dur="2.983">So, there are a lot of different systems out there.>

< start="662.323" dur="2.157">And of course you could go the whole hog>

< start="664.48" dur="1.86">and have a fully-wired system,>

< start="666.34" dur="2.1">but something in particular that is definitely worth>

< start="668.44" dur="2.13">factoring in is the type of lenses>

< start="670.57" dur="3.08">that they operate on and the resolution of them.>

< start="673.65" dur="1.42">So, I would say at minimum>

< start="675.07" dur="2.07">you want something that's full HD.>

< start="677.14" dur="1.9">You want something that's going to work on infrared>

< start="679.04" dur="1.77">so you can see at night.>

< start="680.81" dur="2.15">And also, you might want something like a wide angle>

< start="682.96" dur="2.15">and also a standard angle.>

< start="685.11" dur="2.44">The reason for that is a wide angle whilst is very good>

< start="687.55" dur="2.28">for seeing a huge area of space,>

< start="689.83" dur="2.63">it could quite hard for facial recognition,>

< start="692.46" dur="2.24">whereas if you had a standard lens>

< start="694.7" dur="1.47">aimed at your one weak point,>

< start="696.17" dur="1.29">let's just say it's in the garage,>

< start="697.46" dur="1.29">the weak point is the door.>

< start="698.75" dur="1.41">There's more chance you're going to get>

< start="700.16" dur="3.47">a decent resolution still image of the culprit,>

< start="703.63" dur="1.9">so just take that into account.>

< start="705.53" dur="1.37">Like I said, there's a lot of different systems.>

< start="706.9" dur="2.673">Make sure whatever you get works for you.>

< start="709.573" dur="3.187">(downtempo music)>

< start="712.76" dur="2.51">Insurance, now you'd be a mad man>

< start="715.27" dur="2.773">to not have your bicycles insured.>

< start="718.043" dur="1.837">They cost so much money these days.>

< start="719.88" dur="1.31">You'd really be an idiot not to,>

< start="721.19" dur="3.55">so definitely look into all the options available to you.>

< start="724.74" dur="2.81">There's various bike-specific insurance companies,>

< start="727.55" dur="0.97">but more often than not,>

< start="728.52" dur="2.48">you can add onto your house insurance,>

< start="731" dur="1.84">but they will be very specific>

< start="732.84" dur="2.68">about the policy and the payout terms>

< start="735.52" dur="1.37">and all that sort of stuff.>

< start="736.89" dur="1.52">What you'll normally find is that>

< start="738.41" dur="1.44">they will want to know description>

< start="739.85" dur="1.66">of where your bike is locked.>

< start="741.51" dur="2.02">They'll want to know the details of the building it's in,>

< start="743.53" dur="2.28">if it has windows, all that sort of stuff.>

< start="745.81" dur="1.52">And if you have a ground anchor,>

< start="747.33" dur="2.59">they'll want a photo of the ground anchor being used.>

< start="749.92" dur="1.66">They'll want to see what sort of locks you've got.>

< start="751.58" dur="1.54">They'll want the serial numbers>

< start="753.12" dur="2.15">and things like that of your bikes.>

< start="755.27" dur="3.056">So, make sure you have all of that information to hand>

< start="758.326" dur="1.934">to get the best possible quotes.>

< start="760.26" dur="2.04">And definitely shop around as well>

< start="762.3" dur="2.49">because it's pretty unlikely the first place you ring>

< start="764.79" dur="2.63">is going to give you the most competitive quote,>

< start="767.42" dur="2.01">but I can assure you it's definitely worth having>

< start="769.43" dur="1.74">decent insurance for your bikes.>

< start="771.17" dur="1.81">It might be really cool in the comments below>

< start="772.98" dur="1.69">to help all your other viewers out>

< start="774.67" dur="1.61">if anyone can add any advice>

< start="776.28" dur="1.62">on various different countries like the US>

< start="790.939" dur="2.891">(downtempo music)>

< start="793.83" dur="2.04">Now, in Europe we have a system available>

< start="795.87" dur="1.4">called data tag.>

< start="797.27" dur="2.907">It's essentially a forensic marking system for your bike,>

< start="800.177" dur="4.203">and once it's marked it can be tracked virtually anywhere.>

< start="804.38" dur="2.19">It dramatically reduces the chances>

< start="806.57" dur="2.17">of you losing your bike if it is stolen.>

< start="808.74" dur="1.66">They can be retrieved.>

< start="810.4" dur="2.42">And it's one of the ones that's actually enforced>

< start="812.82" dur="1.48">by a lot of insurance companies.>

< start="814.3" dur="2.04">They will quite often only insure you>

< start="816.34" dur="2.15">if you have data tag in place.>

< start="818.49" dur="2.48">That's certainly for UK and Europe.>

< start="820.97" dur="2.5">I know in the US there's a similar GPS system>

< start="823.47" dur="1.34">called SureLock.>

< start="824.81" dur="2.676">Again, there's different options available to you.>

< start="827.486" dur="2.961">But definitely check out all of the systems.>

< start="830.447" dur="1.153">At the end of the day, you want to make it>

< start="831.6" dur="2.83">as hard as possible to have your bike nicked.>

< start="834.43" dur="2.08">And they come with markings for the bike>

< start="836.51" dur="3.81">that display that it's got a data tag system installed to it>

< start="840.32" dur="1.74">and they're tamper-proof as well.>

< start="842.06" dur="2.36">And those alone can be a deterrent>

< start="844.42" dur="1.34">from having your bike nicked.>

< start="845.76" dur="2.209">So, definitely look into things like that.>

< start="847.969" dur="3.011">(downtempo music)>

< start="850.98" dur="3.07">Now, you can do everything that we've mentioned so far,>

< start="854.05" dur="3.12">and still you have to apply some common sense>

< start="857.17" dur="1.91">to make sure your bike stays safe.>

< start="859.08" dur="2.89">So firstly, you need to make sure that your entrance>

< start="861.97" dur="2.55">to your house is secure because if that's not secure>

< start="864.52" dur="2.15">people can still get in.>

< start="866.67" dur="2.93">And likewise, if you're aware that there are people around>

< start="869.6" dur="1.76">that can identify that you're on a good bike>

< start="871.36" dur="2.65">when you return home, maybe do a lap, go around the block.>

< start="874.01" dur="2.1">Don't always return straight into your house>

< start="876.11" dur="1.91">so they know where you live.>

< start="878.02" dur="3.398">The same applies if you're leaving maybe a trail center>

< start="881.418" dur="1.522">when you come home from riding,>

< start="882.94" dur="2.05">you notice anyone following you,>

< start="884.99" dur="2.14">although this might be a super rare occasion,>

< start="887.13" dur="1.9">or you might not have even heard of this happening,>

< start="889.03" dur="4.1">it does happen so just be vigilant about this sort of stuff.>

< start="893.13" dur="2.09">The same applies as to where you're putting your bike>

< start="895.22" dur="2.65">in the car, perhaps in your driveway,>

< start="897.87" dur="1.33">or unpacking your bike.>

< start="899.2" dur="0.99">You never know who's watching,>

< start="900.19" dur="1.94">so just take care of that sort of thing.>

< start="902.13" dur="2.23">You might live in a perfectly nice neighborhood,>

< start="904.36" dur="2.6">but you can still get dodgy people driving past>

< start="906.96" dur="2.49">and just take note of the house number you lived in,>

< start="909.45" dur="3.29">so be very careful with that sort of stuff.>

< start="912.74" dur="1.95">Now, another common sense thing is>

< start="914.69" dur="2.32">take note of the frame number of your bike.>

< start="917.01" dur="3">You'll be surprised how few people actually do this.>

< start="920.01" dur="1.89">Whenever you get a bike there is a frame number>

< start="921.9" dur="0.833">on the frame.>

< start="922.733" dur="2.307">It is sometimes and quite often on the bottom bracket shell>

< start="925.04" dur="2.11">but it can be inside the rear dropout.>

< start="927.15" dur="2.95">There's a number of different locations it can be on a frame>

< start="930.1" dur="2.9">and it's completely unique to your bike,>

< start="933" dur="3.2">so that means your bike can be traced if the bike is found,>

< start="936.2" dur="1.823">and it has been stolen for example,>

< start="938.023" dur="2.517">and you will need that number for insurance purposes,>

< start="940.54" dur="2.33">and you'll also need it if your bike does go missing>

< start="942.87" dur="1.61">to report to the police.>

< start="944.48" dur="3.9">So, please make sure you note down your frame number.>

< start="948.38" dur="1.71">So, when you have a good setup.>

< start="950.09" dur="1">You got your ground anchors,>

< start="951.09" dur="2.05">you got your bikes daisy chained together>

< start="953.14" dur="1.08">and locked to the anchor,>

< start="954.22" dur="2">take some photo evidence of that,>

< start="956.22" dur="2.53">and also make sure you have up to date photos>

< start="958.75" dur="1.95">of all of your bikes if you have more than one,>

< start="960.7" dur="2.447">or of your bike if you only have one.>

< start="963.147" dur="2.153">And the reason for that is if it does go missing,>

< start="965.3" dur="1.86">straight away you have an image>

< start="967.16" dur="1.9">you can share on social media,>

< start="969.06" dur="1.3">or you can share it with the police>

< start="970.36" dur="3.96">or anyone relevant to help you retrieve your bike.>

< start="974.32" dur="0.98">But whilst you're at it,>

< start="975.3" dur="3.72">make sure you turn off your GPS on your phone>

< start="979.02" dur="3.35">if you're taking pictures of your bike at your property.>

< start="982.37" dur="2.42">So, any of you that take photos for bike cable,>

< start="984.79" dur="1.7">any of you that take photos>

< start="986.49" dur="2.08">for Bike Vault on the Dirt Shed show,>

< start="988.57" dur="2.9">make sure you turn off location services>

< start="991.47" dur="2.42">on your phone when you use the camera,>

< start="993.89" dur="3.4">or at least disable them just for your camera.>

< start="997.29" dur="1.97">And the same goes if you use Strava>

< start="999.26" dur="2.32">or any sort of ride tracking apps>

< start="1001.58" dur="0.833">that are available out there.>

< start="1002.413" dur="1.177">There's a lot of them.>

< start="1003.59" dur="3.087">Make sure that you don't use it from your front door.>

< start="1006.677" dur="2.523">You can set privacy zones on Strava,>

< start="1009.2" dur="2.47">but I would still not completely trust that.>

< start="1011.67" dur="1.74">I would go for a ride first,>

< start="1013.41" dur="2.57">then start your official ride tracking,>

< start="1015.98" dur="2.83">and then return at that point, and then return home.>

< start="1018.81" dur="2.43">You really don't want any way that you can be traced>

< start="1021.24" dur="1.49">back to where you live.>

< start="1022.73" dur="2.39">Now, just a few last little things to say.>

< start="1025.12" dur="2.77">If you have heavy duty power tools>

< start="1027.89" dur="1.88">in your workshop for example,>

< start="1029.77" dur="1.9">it's a good idea to keep them locked away>

< start="1031.67" dur="1.84">or perhaps in a different location>

< start="1033.51" dur="1.58">from where you lock your bikes,>

< start="1035.09" dur="3.09">just in the event that something bad could happen.>

< start="1038.18" dur="2.79">If you have any of those sort of feelings about any stuff,>

< start="1040.97" dur="1.33">use your instincts, you know?>

< start="1042.3" dur="2.93">Close your blinds at night so people can't see in.>

< start="1045.23" dur="1.69">Make sure you got cages over your windows.>

< start="1046.92" dur="5">Lock your doors, use CCTV, have alarms, have anchor points.>

< start="1052.15" dur="1.5">Look after your pride and joy.>

< start="1055.15" dur="0.833">There you go.>

< start="1055.983" dur="1.847">You can never be too secure,>

< start="1057.83" dur="1.68">so make sure you look after your bikes.>

< start="1059.51" dur="2.07">Get some good quality locks.>

< start="1061.58" dur="1.32">Make sure your bikes are insured.>

< start="1062.9" dur="3.71">Perhaps even look into the realm of CCTV.>

< start="1066.61" dur="2.253">Lock it, don't lose it.>

< start="1070.678" dur="1.002">All right, well there you go.>

< start="1071.68" dur="1.71">That's the basics of home security>

< start="1073.39" dur="2.71">and all the things you should be factoring in>

< start="1076.1" dur="2.58">to make sure your bikes are nice and safe.>
