Helmet/bag lock cable

Ran across this and thought I would share with you folks as a potential helmet/bag lock for our bike

This lock is 8” from the top of the lock to the top of the arch, so that puts it roughly 16” long. I like this option a little better if I go with it

If you install a frame mounted lock, you can use an even longer 48"+ cable so you can secure your helmet and jacket to the bike in good weather for short periods of time.

Very clean!

Yes sir, about to go ahead and order his dual kit here in a few. Been looking at different ways and bottom line, if they want it bad enough, they will take it. BUT I will also use a cable lock of some sort as I am picking up my new Airflite Inky tomorrow or the next day.

Thanks
David
