ABUS BORDO 6000A 190 Alarm

The sound of security.

ABUS is known for their unique foldable locks. What was a standard on their motorcycle locks, has now been added to their Bordo foldable locks; an alarm. It still has the standard structure of 5mm steel bars and soft coating exterior.  They improved the holder, making it a lot easier to hold your lock with a simple clock and no more straps, which is great for those who have skinnier frames.

The alarm system works with a 3D detection system, which means that little vibrations wont trigger it, but bigger movements will make it beep (100dB) 4 times, and if no more movement, will go back to zero. If movement continues it will go off for 20 seconds.

How do you prevent the alarm from going off while riding? It is built with to locking points, the first one will not engage the alarm, which allows you to use the lock without the alarm. The second point engages the alarm.

CAD price point is still to be determined, but this will certainly be a product on our shelves come next season.

Welcome to the new ALLO VELO bicycle cafe in Griffintown, Montreal.

After 4 years in St-Henri, Allo Velo is now located in the upcoming neighborhood that is Griffintown. Why did we choose this spot? It is more central and located just 200 meters from the  Peel basin which connects the popular Lachine Canal bikeway from the Old Port the the west end. With the surge of new residents, offices and tourists here, a bike shop that not only has a cafe bar  , high quality repair service and rental bikes is the perfect addition to this area. Finally, we can now operate a full fleet of rental bikes  to the locals and tourists visiting Montreal.The 2100sqft space allowed us to be able to showcase more bikes and products, expand the cafe area and hold more repairs bikes. Its industrial charm made for very easy decoration with little to no renovations. We also plan on using this space for more workshops, presentations, popups, and other events. If you have any inspiration, product launch, or group and are looking for a unique venue, we want to hear from you. Even though, from the outside we look like a bigger shop, we are still a small team; passionate about cycling in Montreal and our clientele. We strive to offer the highest level of customer service and bicycle repair service, along with a nice espresso...

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
