  • Decent enough lock for low crime areas

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    -The lock is long enough to go around a wheel and a large lampost.
    -It seems sturdy enough.
    -It is flexible in the way you can thread the lock through almost any part of the bike.
    -Lots of different locking applications.

    Cons:

    -I have not tested it with bolt cutters or bolt clippers, but it may not be suitable for large cities e.g. London, New York. For the countryside village that we live in, it's perfect.
    -Stronger than your ordinary and cheap dollar/poundstore lock.
    -A third spare key would have been nice.
    -As it does not coil up or have a bracket, it's difficult to carry on the bike unless you have a bike bag/rucksack

    OtherThoughts:

    If you've ever bought a lock for a computer, it's similar to that in the way it threads through the metal bolt piece.
    If you live in a moderate crime area, you may consider buying two. One for the front wheel.
    If you live in a high crime area, just buy a Kryptonite D Lock.

    Bottomline:

    For me, living in a small village/town. It's perfect. Robust enough to deter a thief.
