- mini: The triangular locking area of the mini is about 7 inches long at the longest point by about 4 inches wide at the widest point. The mini is intended to provide just enough locking area to secure the bike frame and/or a wheel to a bike rack. It is well suited for the Sheldon Brown locking method where you lock the rear wheel through the rear triangle to a bike rack. The locking area of the TiGr® mini is similar to that of a mini u-lock.
- mini+: The rectangular locking area of the mini+ is about 4 inches wide by about 8 inches long. The locking area of the mini+ is similar to that of a standard u-lock.

Yes, all versions of the TiGr® cylinders are compatible with all versions TiGr® Bows.
If the rim-to-rim distance on the bike (as represented by the red line in the image below) is less than about 21 inches, the STANDARD BOW will likely be long enough to capture both wheels on the bike.
The inner diameter at the bend for all lengths is about 2 in.
Please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have more sizing questions.
No, they simply attach the cleat to the tips of the TiGr® bow. Below is an 3-D interactive cutaway view of the bow – cylinder coupling in their locked state:
That means, drilling out a rivet (or screw in the case of TiGr BLUE) is not an effective method of attack.
In this video, a bike shop mechanic removes a rivet with a power drill. All locks, including TiGr Locks, can be defeated by a person with the right tools, know-how and intent. But for TiGr Locks, as this mechanic learned, drilling out a rivet (or screw in the case of the TiGr BLUE) isn't how to do it. BACK STORY: The lock in this video was damaged in a theft attempt in a major European city. That thief was not able to defeat the lock; the bike was not stolen. A police officer cut the lock with an angle grinder. The owner of the lock brought it into the shop and shot the video.
Examples of ART level 2 bicycle locks:
Here’s what we do. It works with most bikes, but not all:
- With the fuzzy side of the strap facing the bike frame, thread the strap under any cables that run along the top tube.
- Thread the end of the strap through the plastic buckle.
- Wrap the strap back on itself.
Here’s what we do. It works for most bikes, but not all:
- Position two silicon o-rings towards the ends of the bow. Position the other two o-rings at the bend of the bow.
- Slide the bow along the sides of the top-tube (carry the lock cylinder separately in a pocket or bag).
- Squeeze the bow tight to the bike frame and wrap one strap back around on itself as tight as you can, then repeat with the other strap.
The only things touching the bike frame should be the silicon o-rings and the fuzzy sides of the straps. If you let the exposed ends of the bow rub against the frame you will scratch your bike. To avoid scratches avoid letting the exposed ends rub on the frame while you ride.
TiGr® Titanium Bike Locks provide very good security for longer rides and shorter stops in higher theft risk situations.
Since 2011 TiGr® Titanium Bike Locks have saved many bicycles from theft many theft attempts by real-world bike thieves wielding real-world bike thief tools such as bolt cutters, hacksaws, crow bars, car jacks, hammers, some sort of fire, some sort of freezing and more.
In independent testing by lock testing experts, independent lock testing labs, journalists and concerned citizens TiGr® titanium bike locks have been found to provide security comparable to much heavier steel u-locks, folding locks and chain bicycle locks.
TiGr® bow-lock style titanium bike locks (the original) are able to capture both wheels on most road bike style bikes without having to remove a wheel or use an additional device such as a cable.
Using a good lock properly reduces the risk of bike theft. However, no bike lock can eliminate the risk of bike theft. All locks can be defeated. Always lock around a piece of the bike that can not be removed with a tool. Always lock to a secure bike rack. Avoid leaving bikes unattended in high risk areas for extended periods of time. Ride your bike!
