Heavyweight chain

Posted01 October 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Expensive
Bought this to keep 2 bikes secure in a garage with a ground anchor. Good heavyweight chain that seems strong and built to withstand substantial attack. Just long enough for 2 bikes and good quality sheath to protect from scratches. All in all pleased with product.

Great, but way too big to transport

Posted20 August 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: Heavy
No qualms about the security of this lock. But I did have to take it back, purely because it's absolutely enormous and not at all suitable for carrying around.
My bad for not really reading the measurements properly. But just so people don't make the same dumb mistake, this lock is really something for longer term storage or for when you have a vehicle with you. Certainly not for commuting or day trips.

A very solid piece of kit

Posted13 August 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, heavy
I bought two of these - one to lock up cycles in the garage, and one to lock cycles to a carrier for staying overnight at hotels. They are really solid both in looks and weight. I'm not sure that faced with these whether a very determined thief would attempt to cut the chain, but I guess deterance is one of the positive things about them.
Like another reviewer, I'd have preferred it to be a bit longer, but both did the job I wanted them to and gave me confidence to leave my bikes outside overnight. I used them in conjunction with other Kryptonite d-locks and cables.

Great bike chain!

Posted05 July 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I have been using this bike chain for safeguarding of my Christiania bike for 3 weeks now and I am very happy with the choice that I made. It is sturdy, yet very smooth to lock/unlock. For the 10 mm link chain it weights as expected but a bit less than my previous Abus of the same size.
This length allows chaining a bike against something fixed even at some distance. 170cm would be a bit more comfortable, albeit with proportional weight added.
Chain has some nice features such as plastic slide cover for the lock and LED light on one of the keys.
Bought from Evans and shipped to DK, it's cheaper than similar Abus chain bought locally.

Perfect heavy chain.

Posted17 August 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Expensive
I bought this chain because I wanted something reliable in order to leave my bike outside. The nylon sleeve is perfect to avoid damaging your bike and also protects the chain itself. It comes with a lighted LED key which is a plus. Go for it.
