One of the worst fears of a bike owner is the thought of having his bike lifted. He would like to have a bike lock that cannot be broken or picked. Fortunately, there are a whole range of bike locks that are available in the market. You just need to pick the right one. Here are five locks that are quite popular:

1: ABUS Granit Extreme 59/180HB: This German brand lock is 16 mm thick and comes with the following features:
--- Square parabolic shackle with a hardened steel construction for maximum resistance against bolt-cutters
--- Double locking cylinder with more than a million key variations
--- Runner cover to sheathe the shackle
--- Sliding cover to shield keyhole from dirt.

The only disadvantage of this lock is that it large and cumbersome to carry

2. Bully U-shaped Disc Lock: This is a strong lock and is not easy to pick. Its important features are:
--- Double-roller-bearing locking mechanism,
