Hi, new SP1 owner here, with multiple stolen bikes in my past. I've done the gamut with the last bike stolen despite a 150 Eur chain, disc lock, and GPS tracker. I saw them break the chain, according to witnesses after about 15 mins of struggle. My mistake for leaving it outdoors for 3 days after an unexpected snow storm.

I now am a wee bit older with a garage at home and work so am taking the leap again. I am considering 2 manufacturers of 19mm chains, but the weak spot seems to be where you lock your bike.

Can anyone say whether a 19mm chain will go through the 51s swingarm?

What about an 'anti-pinch' bolt through the swingarm mount?

Any other creative locking points?

Rob

I'm looking at them indeed. Not afraid of someone taking off the swingarm to take the rest? I won't be leaving her alone for more than 8 hours at a time but that is 7 hours too long....

I ran it through the swingarm as well as a wheel (or two if you get long enough). It was fine for me. It may not be for you. The UK is quite different from here. GL.
