    Mike has really adhered to those VeloOrange saddles lately. Makes me want to try one out.

    Anybody used one of those new rear wheel locks featured on this bike that VO is offering now? I was psyched to see them for sale finally in the US, but can’t tell if they look cheesy or not. I know they’re not ideal locks for every purpose, but do they work as intended?

    @Thom

    We have them on our Pashleys. I believe they work as intended; they’ll keep someone from riding off with your bike, but they won’t keep someone from picking it up and throwing it in the back of a pickup. I see them more as a short term deterrent (i.e. for running into a store for a minute) than as a long-term security device for parking the bike out of sight for extended periods.

    @Thom: I just got 2 (arrived today) for VO. They look cheesy and are heavy, but in a good way–as in your parked bike will not go flying with that anchor holding it down. :)

    I am putting one on my Tour Easy and expect it will be a good theft deterrent. Not many are thrilled about lifting a 50 lb long wheel base recumbent and heaving it onto their to truck. Besides, one key advantage of the Tour Easy is that in the North East, folks are not familiar with them and it looks like like a homemade POS they don’t want to steal.

    @Thom…I currently have 3 bikes with wheel locks and have ordered a couple of the ones from Velo-Orange. I really like the AXA Defender lock with the optional plug in chain. The AXA is a pretty stout lock compared to the ones from Velo-Orange, pricier too. In my experience the wheel lock is great when you are close to the bike. I usually supplement mine with a cable or chain to keep the bike from being carried off. For longer term locking I still carry a Ulock and heavy cable.

    Thanks all! I’m really thinking about putting one on my new (old) grocery bike when it’s done.
