  8. Security. Locking bikes on a bike rack. ??

    T4 Conversions
    There must be a safer and more secure way than relying on the bike rack being fitted to the door and locking to that. Is there something on the market that you can lock through the doors, and lock to the bike rack. Anyone got any thoughts on this. Thanks.
