The minds behind Tex-Lock are bike fans with body & soul, and product developers with passion & devotion. Equipped with textile know-how and dissatisfied with existing bicycle lock solutions, founders Alexandra Baum and Suse Brand developed the idea for Tex—Lock. Since the two women from Leipzig, Germany, travel a lot by bicycle, they experienced the frustration of having to ride around with a clattering, unwieldy metal bicycle lock. The bright idea was to make a bicycle lock out of textile. Tex-Lock is based and manufactured in Leipzig, Germany with the highest of German standards and expertise.
All products of the eyelet series are certified according to ART*2 anti-theft criteria.
I love the concept. The X-lock is narrow. I have a Gazelle Ultimate C380 e-bike. The lock isn't wide enough to secure the wheel which I'd like to do. I can get it on w/great difficulty, but not exactly where I'd like to place it. Only time will tell.The Tex-lock eyelet is a little more bulky than I thought it would be. I ordered the largest size. It would be nice to be able to order a smaller size without the X-lock or smaller lock. That way I could have 2 eyelet and one lock.
I have used it several times and it has worked better than anticipated. I have a recumbent Trike and wasn't sure it would be long enough, but it has been great. I always park in a fairly busy, public place and only in daylight, so there has been any attempted theft. Great product, great service.
Using the lock and some of this suggested methods of using the lock and cable i’m confident that my bike will still be there when I come back. We got the long version which gives me the ability to lock the rear wheel, frame, and the front wheel to an unmovable object.
