Ulock mounting options
« on: June 01, 2019, 09:39:05 pm »
Hi All, Has anyone heard of aluminum ulock mounts? I'm not really finding any online.  I've quickly broken three plastic ones with standard use. They don't seem very durable at all.  Or if anyone has creative ways to mount your ulock?  Thanks!

I've never carried a Ulock on tour since I use a much more minimal lock, but why not just strap it on your rack, panniers, or other baggage since you are apparently touring.  No knowing what your setup looks like I can't say, but there may be some place that it will easily tuck under a flap or have some existing straps pass through it.

Mounts under seat and appears to be coated metal.

I have had good luck with plastic U-lock mounts by attaching it to the chain stay on the non-drive side. I set it up so it stands upright on the chain stay, with the round part of the U facing forward just touching the seat tube and secured with a velcro strap.
