Disc lock for rear wheel

Hi all,

 

Do you have any suggestions for a good disc lock for the rear wheel? Initially I was thinking about this one, but it does not look like it's going to fit as the bolt on the lock is too thick.

 

Thanks!

I bought this one. It's sizable, hefty and pricey, but reasonable pick safe (the lockpickinglawyer has a vid on it) and even with an angle grinder very difficult to remove (there's a good vid on YouTube). The alarm function does add some deterrence and you won't need an ugly reminder cable..

Hey WalterT,

 

thanks for your suggestion. The link you gave states that the locking bolts are 13.5 mm thick. I measured a gap only of 11mm on my rear brake disc. Am I missing something?

My bad, the lock won't fit into the rear wheel because it collides with the ABS ring..

I was thinking the same thing. I'm looking at the ABUS 300 Disc Lock 10mm

I have one like that. The battery's been dead for ages now and I just can't get myself to replace it. 9/10 when I removed the lock the alarm went off before I'm able to turn the key. It just draws more attention than I need.

The noise might scare off the amateur thief trying to take your bike. But the guys that do it routinely will just freeze the alarm so it's hardly audible anymore, pick up the bike with 3-4 guys, lift it in a van and worry about getting the lock off later.

Bumping this topic, I'm looking at disc locks, any advice/ recommendation?

I have the Abus Granit Sledg 77 which is a similar lock, and it does have an available mounting bracket (https://www.fc-moto.de/epages/fcm.sf/?channable=02097969640031353338363438383532f7&ObjectPath=/Shops/10207048/Products/ABUS-SH-77-Transport-Bracket&Locale=en_US&gclid=CjwKCAjwlqOXBhBqEiwA-hhitLSqv3T5l8oi2ciQgI6RfUBftRSAgBoLNLlIuEfrheRAfkgoQ6ZUSBoCLQwQAvD_BwE).

 

The unfortunate thing is that the Abus SH 77 mount weighs a ton, so much that I hesitate to use it on the T7.

 

I expect the same would be true for the 8087 if a bracket exists.
