Sometimes, the simplest fixes are the most effective. To further deter thieves from jacking your wheels, Kryptonite has created Security WheelNutz, bike axle nuts with one crucial twist: they can only be removed if the bike is 180 degrees upside down. And if you've got a lock on your frame, this should be virtually impossible for would-be swindlers.


You can grab 'em for $31, and install them with just a 15mm wrench. And since they've got a weather-proof coating, they're safe from the elements as well as the bike-stealing dregs of humanity.
