Product Description

Product Description

With interests in bike touring, commuting, trail riding, back country exploration, camping, Rock climbing, and a plethora of other outdoor sports, heath's weekends are packed with what he calls product testing. This works out well for both heath and planet bike since he directs product development and takes every opportunity to indulge in product field testing. Heath comes to planet bike with 12 years in the bicycle industry; dabbling in everything from sales to national bicycle advocacy work, product development to working in a shop and building trail. Cycling has always been a big part of my life starting with my first bike, a 16 inch fixed wheel bike my dad retrieved from a muddy River bed, says heath. Whether it's hitting the trail, going to work, or going to the grocery store, sustainability and my impact on the environment are top priorities for me. I'm proud to be a part of planet bike where these priorities are both shared, and promoted.

About Planet Bike
In November of 1996, Planet Bike was founded in Madison, Wisconsin. In many ways, Planet Bike began as a social experiment that dedicated itself to doing business in a different way. Instead of being just another company that develops and sells products with profit as its end goal, Planet Bike wanted to help bring about positive change for people, their communities, and the environment.

Despite being a simple machine, the people at Planet Bike have always believed that the bicycle has great potential to help improve the world and the lives of the people in it. From the start, they have embraced an alternative corporate purpose which seeks to help get more people on bicycles by making communities friendlier places for the self-propelled. By donating 25% of company profits to causes that promote and facilitate bicycle usage, Planet Bike hopes to make an impact.

Social experiments aside, Planet Bike was born from the heart of a cyclist with a goal of making innovative, high quality, and practical bicycle accessories. Simply put, they strive to design and develop the best bicycle products in the world. In the company's short ten year history, they have made important product innovations within the bicycle industry. Advancements include the 4-line computer which is now a standard in the industry and the world's first self-contained HID light. Not bad for a company that ten years ago started as a one man operation. Today, while still a small company, Planet Bike continues to evolve and improve their product line with the goal of always striving to build accessories that make it easier for people to ride their bikes. Since 1996, Planet Bike's financial support of the grassroots bicycle movement has totaled $500,000. By 2010, they have made a goal to donate $1 million to organizations that are dedicated to making America a friendlier place for cyclists.

I bought this after my seat/seat post were stolen. This might slow down theives. They'd have to carry bolt cutters to steal your seat, and that'd make them sorta comspicuous. I figure this is the best you can hope for on seat protection that is easy enough to use all the time. I hate thieves. Should shoot them, but you can't.

Good product that is easy to install and works as a deterent for someone walking off with your bike seat. Probably could be cut with wire cutters, but again, not someone just walking by. I also looped through my saddle bag as once someone decided to take my bag off my locked bike(at least they left the garage door opener).

This product doesn't actually keep your bicycle seat from getting stolen, but works well as a deterrent. It would be very difficult to put it on in such a way that there were no spots vulnerable to being cut, and however you put it on, you just have to reverse that process to take it off. It may require tools, but thieves generally have tools. However it is very difficult and time consuming to put it on, as well as to take it off in the reverse manner. So unless you have a tool to cut it with, it isn't going to be worth someone's time to steal your seat - hopefully! These cords are inexpensive, and definitely better than nothing! This particular cord isn't much different from any other.

Does what it is supposed to do! The way the instructions state to install this seat leash is a bit odd. Definitely a new unique way to keep your seat post in place, although I just ended up wrapping the cable around the frame and under the bike seat and using a key lock. Good deterrent against the walk-by thief, but don't count on it if they end up having some decent cutters. Had to get this bike seat cable after having my seat stolen... Definitely worth the investment compared to the HUGE inconvenience of going without a bike seat.

This is a nice good quality study cable which is the perfect size to secure your seat without being in the way. You can attach it to your bike in such a way so it will wrap around itself and the seat and not need an additional lock. The diagram is on the planet bike plastic tag attached to the cable when you receive it. I live in the city and I hate the thought of coming out to get my bike and the seat is gone. This is cheap insurance against that happening.

Like anything related to security, what you don't know is how you'll experience a failure to secure; So I installed this according to instructions, and it looks like filling the seat post allen bolt with epoxy will also be in the offing, but I've also added a steel tube encased gun lock that goes through the seat rails & around the top tube of the bike. That's light enough to not make much difference for a light weight aluminum framed bike. A high crime neighborhood would, I guess, require one not to leave the seat on the bike overnite.

Perfect for what I want it for. I use this as a leash when I check handguns in my luggage. Slip it through the inside metal guides for the roller handles, and lock it to my gun case. Gives me a bit of extra security knowing my bag can't be opened and the gun case simply taken out. Sure, they can steal the whole piece of luggage, but that's another case. I also use it to secure my gun case to the frame of my car seat when there's a place I can't bring it. Not going to stop a determined thief, but prevents a quick removal. I'd recommend it.

I have had this cable for 2 years now permanently installed by looping it through the seat and bike frame and have not lost my seat yet.

However, I do not leave my bike unattended for long periods of time when I park and lock on my weekend errands.

Although this cable is too thin to prevent theft and one cannnot underestimate the brazenness of thieves, this cable is a deterrant to quick grab thieves who are looking for a quick grab.
