Xena Disk Lock Alarm

http://www.kneedraggers.com/details/...1--505044.html

Anyone try one of these yet? Some reviews say they're way too sensitive, but personally when my bike is on the line that might not be such a bad thing.

Other reviewers have said that you can cover the alarm with your hand. But wouldn't that make it harder to steal the bike? With just one hand?

I've already got a couple of other theft deterents on my bike, but had thought about installing an alarm when a buddy told me about these.

Anyone?

looking for a trackbike!!








As said before, you can just put your thumb over the speaker and its goes silent. Also, my alarm randomly went off for no reason so i ended up removing the alarm part.

I have one and I would agree they can be pretty sensitive and seem like it's going off for no reason sometimes. I like the kryptonite lock I have better.

I have one. I like it not so much for the alarm as a means of alerting a thief, but because it reminds ME that it's on my bike so I don't take off with it still attached. Yes it's reminded me plenty of times.

me personally would rather chain it to something.. what I do at school is I have a rubber coated chain with a covered padlock I got something similar to this

OnguardAkita5036Lock 310x310

and I either find a poll to put it around and run it through my front wheel and disk.. or its long enough if there is no pull ill put it through my rear wheel and wrap it around to my front wheel.. then they have to pick it up or cut the chain... either way like some will say if they want it bad enough they will get it. just keep and eye out invest in good quality insurance and garage it if possible.

I got one and it worked good on the first set of batteries. Second set crapped out quick and haven't replaced the yet. Haven't had it real long but it looks like already. Better than nothing when I'm at work, I guess.

You can get one with a string/rope that you put on your handle bar to remind you to take it off so you won't forget.

Also, I forgot to add. Instructions tell you how adjust it's sensitivity based on positioning/orientation. Seemed to work for me. Different positions on my disc and it was more or less sensitive.
