Bike Size Charts
BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.
We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.
It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.
If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!
Summary of Reviews
We have read all expert and user reviews on the Altor SAF. In summary, this is what cyclists think.
8 reasons to buy
- With an 80 mm outer shackle, testers took more than an hour to cut through the Altor SAF. It exhausted multiple angle grinders, multiple blades, and multiple batteries in the process.
- Both sides of the shackle lock into the crossbar, requiring thieves to cut it twice.
- With an uncommon ‘disc detainer’ lock mechanism, an expert lockpicker says the SAF is unlikely to be picked.
- The SAF is covered in a “cushion” coating, to protect your bike’s frame.
- Owners report the SAF does fit around standard parking meter poles.
- The SAF comes with 4x ‘disc detainer’ keys.
- Despite its “ludicrous” size, the SAF does fit in a pannier.
- Many users believe the burly looks of the Altor SAF can scare off thieves.
4 reasons not to buy
- At 3.2” thick, 9.5” wide, and 13.7 lb, the Altor SAF is huge, heavy, and not very portable.
- Users say the 3.2” shackle is too large to fit between most standard bike spokes.
- With its wide shackle and moderate internal width, owners have limited options for attaching the SAF to their bike frame and lock points.
- One tester claims to be able to “easily” break the SAF, using a 12-volt drill.

Altor SAF Bike Lock (Drilled in Seconds)
Today we’re going to be calling out Altor locks. This thing can be bypassed with just a 12V drill, even though it has this big obnoxious aluminum shackle, so don’t worry about burning your grinder. It’s nothing special, just a brass lock.
