Bicycle Accessories from Decathlon
Bought a few accessories for Kor Kor and I during the 11 Nov sale. (Use ShopBack for more “discount”.)
Bicycle Locks – 100 ACCESSORIES LOCK TRI-PACK
|Theft resistant||Safety level rating: 1/10. |
The security rating helps you choose the lock that is most suited to your needs. To accomplish this, B’Twin defined a test protocol jointly with an independent laboratory, CNPP, based on real-life theft techniques. This unique protocol allows each lock to be given a comparable rating indicating how resistant it is to theft. This rating ranges from 0 (least secure) to 10 (most secure).2 locks with key, 1 with pin.
Not designed for bikes.
|Lightweight||Total weight: 600g.|
|Volume||Usable length: 100 cm. Ideal for attaching your accessories.|
|Composition||Rope : 70.0% Steel, 30.0% Polypropylene |
Chassis : 50.0% Steel, 50.0% Polypropylene
Yup, apparently the locks are not meant for bikes. Probably due to the low security rating. However it is good enough for us. The number lock for Kor Kor (so that I don’t have to worry about losing the key), 1 lock for me, and a spare lock to keep at home.
I particularly like that the 2 key locks are colour coded with corresponding colour coded keys. This will make identifying the correct key easy.

Kor Kor’s bike did not come with a stand. Decided to get him one so that the bike does not become dirty when he cycles to the beach. The height of the stand is adjustable.

I also got a bike stand for myself. I plan to fit a rack / seat above my rear wheel, and was concerned that a side stand would interfere with the installation. So, I decided to get a centre stand instead. The height is adjustable and the stand does not get in the way of the tyres.

Selected this as it could take up to 27 kg (suitable for Kor Kor) and is also the only one that is compatible with child seat. There are other options which can take 10-18 kg. But those would not provide as many options in future, and it might not take the weight (even if I was prepared to use it beyond 18 kg).
