  1. 1. THE LOCKLIGHT BITCHESIssue 1: 10/22/10 Tragon Blog New Features TRAGON The LockLight design Below is a list of Nation-wide Bike events • The LockLight is a lockable LED bicycle light that can be locked to a variety of different-sized bicycle handlebars. The LockLight body will be constructed primarily of polycarbonate composite plastic to promote durability and water resistance.  Theft Proof  Does not need to be taken off handlebars after riding  Minimal damage in heavy rain, or when hit with high impact. Here are 5 tips to protect yourself against bicycle and accessory theft: 1. Always use bicycle cages and racks to lock your bicycle rather than public fences. 2. Use a high quality U lock rather than a chain lock, which can be easily cut. 3. Be particularly cautious in September and October- bicycle thefts are highest this time of year 4. If the option is available to you, register you bicycle with your school or workplace so your bicycle can be easily returned to you if its lost or stolen and then found. 5. Buy the LockLight! The LockLight allows you to leave you bicycle light on you bike without fear of theft. No longer will you have to take your bicycle light with you everywhere you go, with the risk of losing it. Just leave it on the handlebars or your locked bike and walk away with peace of mind. Ride Long and Prosper, Team Tragon
