* Mounting was quite simple and appears to be solid; see attached picture.
* Cable is long enough to go through front wheel and back to the U-lock on the rear wheel
So far I am really happy :)
- The company will refund the cost of the bike (up to £800) if you register your lock and your bike with them on their website if your bike is stolen.
- Lock feels substantial and will certainly deter the opportunist thief.
- Solid cable, which ensures more complete protection for the bike, allowing you to tie in the front wheel too.
- Affordable - well-priced for the protection it offers.
- Lock/cable is fairly heavy to carry around.
- Key lock can be a bit fiddly to operate: I worry a little that in the future this could lead to difficulties with being able to unlock it but it will probably be fine!
Frankly, if it wasn't for the recommendation, I would never have looked at a D-Lock like this, since I had assumed they were too heavy to carry around. What I didn't realise is that it comes with a handy adapter that allows you to mount the lock to your bike frame when not in use. This works very well for me - it holds the lock very securely. No wobble, no rattle, and you really don't notice it's there until you need it.
Some reviewers on this page have said they found the adapter impossible to fit. I must admit that I struggled at first, because I am a man and I don't like to read instructions. When I eventually did read the instructions, it all became clear, and I had the adapter fitted in under 5 minutes (it's a plastic mount attached to a nylon tether; you loop the tether through the mount, and tighten an allen nut to secure the tether. The secret is to push down the plastic against the frame as firmly as possible so that the nut engages - then it's easy).
Also, there are 2 keys included (just in case you lose one). I'd recommend storing the spare one somewhere safe!
The only quibble I have is with the 'insurance'. The fine print is so full of exclusions that it's basically worthless. If you do a little Googling, you'll find numerous stories of the company not paying out in the event of theft. But search a little further, and you'll see videos of just how much noise and effort it takes to get through this lock - rest assured that *nobody* is going to cut this lock without attracting a *lot* of attention.
My bag got stolen, which had my bike locks keys in it. Due to this, my bike was locked up in a dodgy part of town, and I had no way of retrieving my bike other than cutting it lose.
Tools we used: Fireman bolt cutters, handsaw, a van, a saw.
All of those failed. The bolt cutters left about an impressive mark on it as a toddler would if it chewed it. The handsaw did nothing, the van did nothing, the saw did nothing.
In the end we had to use a mains powered angle grinder and a diamond level saw disk, even then it took a good 15 minutes and the diamond level saw disk was in complete tatters, and had to be thrown away.
Not bad for £20. Although the difficulty was with the MAIN LOCK. The extra CABLE came off pretty easily.
1. The key is fiddly and sections of the lock internals do get 'out of line' so that full insertion is difficult. But to be fair many lock mechanisms of this kind have the same issue and I expect it will improve as it wears. Adding some light oil to the mechanism helps.
2. The mounting bracket is not particularly useful as it is a bit bulky and it requires the lock to be slid into place. On many bikes the available room within the triangle of the frame to allow mounting and sliding the lock in and out is limited, especially when other items such as pump clamps, front mech clamps and cable runs already obstruct the tubing. I found, therefore, that it was useless so will carry the lock in a bag.
It isn't so heavy as some people have suggested bearing in mind it is actually intended to resist attack with tools. The cable is a useful length and handy to have. It is quite a small lock, though, so you will be limited as to what you can pass it round - bike racks and railings, and thin poles will be fine but forget about lamp-posts and the like. I can't comment on how effective a lock it is as remarks such as 'it looks substantial' are pretty meaningless unless actually tested in anger but it has to be better than a simple cable lock (you might as well tie your bike up with string) and for the price I thought that this package was very good value for money if you don't mind the minor irritations.
