In the age of record-high gas prices and an environmentally conscious ethos, opting to ride your bike to work instead of your car may be the best way to save some money and feel better about your reduced carbon footprint in the process. However, keeping your bike locked up during the 8-10 hour workday is a must. That’s where the Tex-Lock comes into play.
Unfortunately, most heavy-duty bike locks resistant to wire cutters are bulky and heavy, weighing you down in the process, and U-locks are only as useful as the infrastructure around you. The Tex-Lock bridges the convenience of a coil lock with the durability and security of a heavy duty chain lock. It’s constructed from several layers that make the piece water resistant, fire resistant, cut resistant, and saw resistant. They come in a variety of sizes depending on your personal preference and a saddle mount allowing for easy storage and transportation when not in use. It’s available now on Kickstarter for reservation and is slated to retail for about $137. [Purchase]
