Im looking at insuring my new road bike a giant defy 3, but ive came across that it must be secured with a grade 2 security lock...

Any advice on a good safe lock?

Also the bike has quick release wheels so how do you go about that?

    The kryptonite D-locks are good (just get the one that meets your standards - not sure what a grade 2 lock is), but as with any decent lock they weigh a ton, so not good to take on your ride.

    As for wheels, just remove the front and then you can get the d lock through the frame and both wheels.

    you can pick up a silver rated Kryptonite lock for £30 and under. i also have a 7 foot cable to go through the wheels as i dont really want to remove wheels to park at work.
    i also have a silver rated Hiplock d lock as a back up as its lighter when i have to take it with me. its only a kilo but was £50.
    i think also you need to register your bike with the lock manufacturer also and they will cover against theft if stolen while using the lock.

    kryptonite evolution mini is the best silver rated lock

    as it is a small D lock it is slightly lighter
