Back in March I got a new Kryptonite U-lock for my bicycle. It’s long enough that I can lock up two bikes without any problems and it’s great that I don’t have to worry about if my bike will still be where I left it. However, my ride is about combining form and function, and I knew I had to do something to spice up my lock.
I thought about covering the base of the lock in a blue foam, but there might be some benefit in having the Kryptonite logo to deter any bike thieves. I might still go for it, leaving an opening for “Kryptonite” to show through.
This project was super easy, took less than 30 minutes, and cost $2 for the two sheets of foam, of which I have lots leftover.It really helps to complete the look I have going for my bike, either when I have the lock strapped to my rack or locked up on a stand. I’d love to see photos if anyone else tries this!
