Aug 27 2012 | Latest News

VANCOUVER, BC – Electric bike manufacturer OHM Cycles announces a sweepstakes to give away one maximum-security folding bike lock to one new or existing Facebook fan. The prize – one Abus Bordo 6500 Granit X-Plus – is the top lock in Abus Security’s folding bike lock series, constructed with 5.5 mm of specially hardened steel bars and cylinder covered in extra soft coating to make it saw- and pick-proof while protecting your bike from scratches. Special rivets in the links let it fold compactly for the handiest, high security bike protection.

Launched today, the contest will run until November 25. It is open to residents of Canada and the United States, ages 19 and up. To enter, simply visit , “like” the OHM Cycles Facebook page, and enter your email address to ensure that you can be contacted if you are the winner. Sharing the contest with your friends will give you two additional entries for every friend that enters.

Michael DeVisser, CEO of OHM Cycles, says, “With the Bordo 6500 X-Plus, Abus has really kept all the needs of a premium bike owner in mind. The lock is not only theft-proof – it also conveniently latches onto any part of your bike and folds compactly for easy transport. Since I started using the Bordo, I never worry about getting my OHM stolen or accidentally scratching my bike.”

OHM’s hybrid electric-assist bikes are currently available in two models: an electric commuter bike and an all-terrain electric mountain bike. New 2013 models will be available for ordering in October 2012. Powered by the lightest, most powerful BionX motor, OHM bikes make all bike rides – whether they involve hilly routes or big loads – easier and more enjoyable, while allowing riders to control the amount of work they put in.

The Abus Bordo 6500 Granit X-Plus prize includes two keys (one LED-lighted) and one rattle-free holder with Velcro or bottle cage mounting that fits most bikes. It also comes with an Abus Code Card for additional or replacement keys or keyed alike lock options.
