    Where to buy Chain and Locks?

    Hello all!
    I did a search and have been reading through, I want to get a bike brace, but I'm renting and they wont let me bolt into the ground. I have a support beam next to my spot though, so im thinking best chain I can get and best lock (I have insurance, but it's a pain in the ass if someone does steal it) so anything helps. I've found a lot of good brands for locks, but not places locally to actually buy them. Anyone know of any places downtown to get a really good lock and a decent sized good chain?

    the chain would need to fit around the support beam.

    Any info would be great

    canadian tire has a big thick cable lock that's "cut resistant" or something, they're pretty long...

    get one of them, a disc lock, lock your steering, and you might buy about 10 minutes before the thief throws it in the back of the truck :P

    Hi there,

    I got my security gear from Carter Honda by Granville Island. I managed to get a very helpful sales girl. She can order pretty much anything you like and she offered me some good advice. I ended up getting a chain and lock to lock to a beam, and also a Xena disc lock (with an alarm built in).

    Not sure if all sales people from Carter are any good, but I definitely got a good one.

    Good luck.

    believe it or not mid-way tire in surrey (72nd and King George) has a great chain selection, and they can cut it to your specified length. I bought a chain called P-wag, supposed to be stronger than the Kryptonite chains and a very high quality lock made in Switzerland that is un-cuttable.

    the place i went to to get my P-Wag used these HUGE 6 foot long bolt cutters and the guy had to basically hang from them and bounce to get it to finally cut it and he was no small guy!! he informed me of what it takes to cut this stuff and i felt quite safe. he said the weekest link is the lock....don't cheap out on the lock.
    That that doesn't kill us forces us to live with a busted up bike!!

    Sorry man, if he could cut it with any bolt cutters its not hard enough. Lots of stuff out there that will break bolt cutters. They aren't designed for hardened steel, only mild steel.
