Perfect size, perfect weight

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: short length
This lock was purchased for my son to lock his bike at school. He needed a lock that would i) fit into his bag, ii) not weigh him down and iii) provide adequate security for his bike. This lock met all three criteria. I had initially purchased the longer Kryptonite locks but these were too heavy and therefore not suitable. It also comes with spare keys and a unique code should you need to re-order more keys, luckily we haven’t had to do this yet so I don’t know how easy that process would be.
Because this lock is not a D-lock, it offers some flexibility around where the bike frame can be attached. I also fitted non-releasable wheel locks so that only the frame needed to be secured, this way my son doesn’t need to worry too much about where he secures the frame.
There is one disadvantage of this lock, it is short (nearly 70cm all the way round). I have seen that other cyclists use the smaller lock in combination with a cable, which in our case would have defeated our need to purchase a smaller, lighter lock. A cable could be used however if needed to lock the bike to some of the less user-friendly bike storage facilities, which unfortunately still exist (especially in some schools).

Strong & confident

Posted22 March 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
I chose to get this size and i am very happy with the length, it secures my bike snugly to posts/poles.however if your looking to lock your bike to bigger things ie lamp posts / trees i would reccomend the larger size.
I am happy to leave my bike alone in public with this lock. I did a lot of research after my previous bike was 'easily' stolen (because i used basic locks). This was the best lock i could find without spending £100s, Kryptonite even offer to replace your bike if their locks fail (providing you register with them).
Easy to use, fits nicely in the bottom of a bag, provides peace of mind.
