Default Uncuttable bicycle chains and GPS trackers
This is a technology forum, someone must know some hardcore bicycle chains/locks that either take too long to cut through, or can't be cut without powertools.

And what about bicycle GPS devices?

Any info is welcome.

BAM!
I love technology.

edit: just from looking at them, I would think U-locks are pretty formidable.

You can use the GPS on your iPhone. There are plenty of apps for this. You can even get a special doobery to attach it to your bike.

Go with a U-lock but make sure it's the smallest one possible to hinder power tool cutting or prying open with a roadside car jack. Even the strongest, heaviest chain will be only as safe as a good

TBH I had no idea such a device existed. And on Googling it it seems they don't....at least not in a form that is affordable and available to the public. What's to stop a thief from removing such a device anyway?

Just get a Datatag.

You carry a motorbike chain around with you on your bicycle?

All the more reason to get one that uses a normal key.

I have to honestly say that any lock or chain you buy to lock up a bike is only going to be a deterrent.

If someone really wants your bike, they will probably find a way to get around the lock.

I have a lock that looks like that but a little older. It works very well, never seen a dent or something that would show that someone had tried to nick it. Besides, it really helps when your bicycle is grey and looking boring so no one notices it anyway.

GPS tracking would be cool, checking on your computer or mobile to see where thief is heading.
