An effective cycle lock

Posted04 July 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
A fairly heavy combination cable/lock system, which gives a feeling of security but more importantly does not rely on a key which might get lost.

Second time lucky?
Posted 29 November 2015
Wrote positive review of this lock when I first had it but after five months the combination rings jammed, luckily NOT while it was securing the bike! Evans' process for returns was efficient, and the new lock does feel a bit more secure - the rings are firmer and there is less wobble on them. I'm hoping for the best but can't be too optimistic at this stage.

It won't stop a determined thief but it will slow

Posted04 January 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Cons: Heavy
This lock was bought for my six year old's scooter. You can set the code to a number they'll remember and it is quite a large rotating bezel so not too fiddly. It is quite heavy and bulky despite not really feeling like it will stop a thief for too long. very easy to set the code and seems decent quality for the price.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Secure, not very easy to open (which is good, there are people who open the easy ones in seconds). Light. Good length.
