$8 Bike Alarm with wireless remote

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Security-Wir...item43bb3a61c2

It's cheap and better than nothing at all. Stick it under the seat and forget about it. :-)

$8 Alarm shipped.

Nice find. Wonder how good/durable/sensitive the little alarm really is. I usually shop for gadgets like this one at one of the chinese stores such as dx.com but quality can be hit or miss.

I got this in the mail the other day:

Great lock. Even without the alarm feature (which is very effective), it's a great disc lock and I feel much better about leaving my bike sitting around. Wasn't $8, more like $80, but I feel like it was money well-spent. If you have any additional info or links about your new alarm, please do share. Let us know how it works! I'm interested.

Sorry. I guess the link had died. I don't know the quality but for 8 bucks it might be worth it.

Ask me how I know...

In the first few days of ownership, I started the bike as it was (on kickstand, front wheel still cocked), got all my gear on then hopped on the bike. As I straightened the wheel, I heard the 3 loud beeps prior to the full alarm... whoops! Very silly as I had to quickly dismount, take the key out, and unlock the damn thing blaring at 120dB. It's a very sensitive system, but so far no false alarms.

But if you're even faster than that, you can wreck the plastic fender if you backup quickly.

I would probably forget like this guy and do the same. I always put my giant Kryptonite U lock in the rear wheel.

I got a cheap disk lock in the beginning, I forgot to take it off 2 times, but the good thing is that I have the bike next to a wall, so I have to push it about 2m, before jumping on it.. so I discovered before spilling it
it worked for about a year and then I couldn't open it, I had to cut it... 15 min with a grinder!!! that's a special steel.... the sparks were really different!
I used a U-lock to block the rear wheel, now I just keep it in the garage...

I have a fluorescent orange disc brake lock with a fluorescent orange coiled cord that runs to my grips. Yet I still once forgot to take it off , why , because I forgot to run the fluorescent orange cord to the grip . Thankfully, a co-worker was standing next to me, getting ready to get on his bike, when he pointed it out.
