Strong lock.

PostedJuly 30, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Good strong lock. Key even has a light so you can see what you are doing in the dark!
Chain is noisy - creeping home after a night ride and chaining up the bike is noisy!
If chaining a bike to an adjacent post the chain is long enough. If chaining to a wall bracket with your back wheel against that wall there is just enough chain length to reach the frame.
Otherwise very good chain so far.
Extremely heavy chain, great for home use, not so much for portable use.

If you can break this lock, you deserve my bike...

PostedJune 30, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Spent £70 on this lock and was pleased at how robust it appears to be. It's very heavy (4kg) which is fine as I don't plan to carry it around.
The links look very strong and well machined. If anything, the weakest part appears to be the padlock itself, but everything's relative - a crowbar won't damage it - am not sure an angle grinder would either.
As ever though, when chaining your bike use your brain - mine will be in full view of CCTV.

i bought this chain to deter thieves and it does, a real quality chain that can withstand near enough anything thrown at it. my only gripe is it could do to be a bit longer.

Very sturdy but very heavy

PostedAugust 21, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Heavy
This is a very sturdy lock - but one to be left in-situ if you can as it is very heavy. An alternative is to fasten it around your waist - I find using a toe-strap is ideal to hold it as then you don't have to lock yourself into it. I got it in the sale so it was very good value.
