Strapping the TiGr® Lock to the top tube of your bike is just one way to carry the lock. The PVC coating on the bow helps prevent the bow from marking your frame. The hook and loop style straps (shown in this video, and included in the TiGr® Lock package) can be synched tight for safe and secure transport. Other types of straps, like pump straps, also work. Bicycles come in a wide range of shapes, sizes and configurations. The technique shown here will not work for all bikes. Always be careful. Make sure the bow is strapped tight. Ride safe and secure! Lighten your load and keep your ride safe!
