Good Solid Lock

PostedJune 6, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Great solid lock which isnt too long to stop it going in a backpack and long enough to secure your frame to a bike rack or railing etc.
Solid and secure in feel, i have combined it with a cable to secure wheels etc when i feel i need to.

Wish I'd bought the bigger size

PostedAugust 19, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable
I recently bought this lock to replace the 1000/100 lock of the same make and model that I lost, as it had been great. I'd had it for nearly 3 years and with minimal maintenance (just a tiny and occasional squirt of WD40 down the key hole) it had been incredibly resilient and still working perfectly with pretty much no sign of wear at all, even with daily use! I used to cycle with the lock around my waist which I found quite comfortable. I can't fault this 1000/80 lock for any reason other than it is slightly too small to fit comfortably around my waist now and slip on and off without undoing the lock. Otherwise it's fantastic and really good value for the money. It's not light but there are certainly heavier locks on the market for the same security.

Reassuringly weighty

PostedNovember 15, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
After having my last bike stolen two weeks after moving to London, I decided to invest in a lock that was meant to be one of the best. This one is more versatile than a D-lock (which makes up for the fact that you can't easily attach it to your bike), and I've not had my new bike stolen yet (it's been three-weeks now, which makes it a PB).
A few reviews I read before buying this lock complained that it was too heavy. I got the smaller size to save on a bit of weight, particularly as I'm too slight to wear the bigger one round my waist (like most of my friends do) - even so, it was a bit too much weight for my rucksack, but I now use a pannier, and that's working out fine.

Excellent!

PostedOctober 15, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Brilliant lock! Very thick and strong. People complain about the weight but honestly I dont think its too bad for a MASSIVE and SECURE lump of metal; what do people expect it to weigh? Would definitely recommend this!

Solid, heavy lock.

PostedAugust 28, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Heavy
A solid lock; at least, I am still in possession of my bike at time of writing. However, be advised that if you purchase the 80cm version, the lack of length will prevent you locking it around some posts as there's not much to play with once it's gone around your spokes and through the wheel. Quite heavy though and there's no attachment for putting it on your bike although that appears only to be a feature of U-type locks not cable ones.

I have recently purchased this lock and it fits the purpose exactly. It is flexible but seems very secure and has a gold security rating.
