Vancouver, Canada, August 30, 2012 --(PR.com)-- E-bike manufacturer OHM Cycles announces a sweepstakes to give away one top of the line folding bike lock to one new or existing OHM Facebook fan. The prize – an Abus Granit Bordo 6500 X-Plus – is the most secure lock in Abus Security’s series of folding bike locks, made with 5.5 mm of specially hardened steel bars and cylinder covered in protective coating to make it saw- and pick-proof while protecting your bicycle from scratches. Special rivets in the links allow it to fold compactly for the handiest, high security bike protection.

Launched today, the sweepstakes will run until November 26. It is open to residents of Canada and the US, aged 19 and up. To enter, simply visit http://www.facebook.com/ohmcycles/app_143103275748075 , “like” the OHM Facebook page, and submit your email address so you can be contacted if you win. Sharing the sweepstakes with friends will give you two extra entries for each friend who enters.

As Michael DeVisser, the CEO of OHM Cycles, explains, “With the Bordo 6500 X-Plus, Abus Security has kept all the needs of bike owners in mind. The lock is not only theft-proof – it is also convenient, easy to use, and easy on your bike. It latches onto any part of your bike and folds down to a compact size. Since I started using the Bordo, I never worry about getting my OHM stolen or accidentally scratching it while locking it.”

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

The Abus Granite Bordo 6500 X-Plus prize comes with two keys (one LED-lighted) and one rattle-free holder with Velcro or bottle cage mounting to flexibly fit most bikes. It also comes with a Code Card for extra or replacement keys or keyed-alike lock options.
