Customer reviews for Abus Granit Plus 51 Lock

Abus Granit Plus 51 Lock

The new EaZyKF bracket from ABUS revolutionises side mounting D Locks. Fitting closely into the frame in a variety of positions allows D locks to be securely mounted, but easily removed with one handed operation. Specifically designed to mount on small sized step-through bicycle frames without impeding top tube clearance. Sold Secure Rating: Silver

Great product at an amazing price!

Posted31 January 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, sturdy
Highly recommended. I have lost bikes in the past due to so called "Silver Standard" D Locks. This looks and feels sturdy, but is so easy to carry on its bracket. Also bought at an amazing price, even better than EBay.

Very Suitable for my needs

Posted15 August 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: Heavy, Uncomfortable
I needed an extra long D-lock to go with my other D-lock and I'm very happy with it being solid secure . It gives you the flexibility to lock your bike up to solid objects which aren't easy to be locked closely to.

Take care when choosing

Posted24 February 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Cons: Heavy, Expensive
As somebody who went back to cycling after a long brake - I was having to make so many choices between bikes / accessories and clothing that my head was spinning.
The reviews here were very helpful in making choices, so I make an effort to add to them if there is anything of value I can add.
With respect to this lock - what can I say - it must be good because those wiser than I gave it a gold rating and it does everything you can expect from a lock.
BUT and this is what everyone should take into account when choosing a lock is make sure it has the right mounting for your bike and for where you want it to go - this I did not do - my bike has a wide crossbar - I had wanted to hang this lock under the crossbar - the lock almost weighs as much as my bike (well may 40% of the weight) and I don't like the fact that I have to mount it to the side of my seatbar - if I had taken this into account when choosing a lock I would have gone for for another version of Abus (same gold rating and price) but one with aa velcro strap that I could attach to the crossbar and so I could have hung it under there - now I am looking at another £25 to buy the accesories to do this!
So great lock - but whatch out for the mounting! I just wish people wouldn't steal bikes so all this extra weight was not a necessity.

Rock-solid

Posted05 October 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Hewn from granite, which is great for security but quite heavy to lug around though. Lock mechanism itself seems bulletproof & the included clip to hold the lock to the frame is very good too, lots of mounting options. Very pleased with it.
