Colour Name: Black / YellowSize Name: 18mm
I'm a cautious type who's happy to spend money to feel confident that I'll find my bike where I left it. I was a bit concerned that the Fahgettaboudit shackle might be too small, but I can count on one hand the number of times over the past six months that I've had trouble finding something suitable to lock to. It's slightly more tricky with my mountain bike than my road one, but that's to be expected with mountain tyres and seat stays being a bit wider. If you buy this lock, though, it's probably because you know you really want to fill the shackle every time to frustrate crowbar and bottle jack attacks. You will always fill it, but it seems they put in the effort to make it exactly the right size to fit in "Hal Ruzal" way - around the seat stays, the wheel and the street furniture you're locking to. It fits around every UK bike rack I've ever used. There are only ever a few millimetres to spare, but they're always there. The lack of wiggle room and the chunkiness of the shackle and body would make me move straight on if I were a thief (even after you strip off the plastic all lock manufacturers put on to make locks look bigger than they really are). Being the cautious type I also have an Abus Granit 54 Plus (my locks probably weigh half as much as my road bike, but I have to lock it in some very high-crime places!) and the shackle space in that seems pointlessly huge in comparison.

You can probably predict some of the downsides if you've done your homework. At 2kg it's not light, but you soon forget about the weight and a light lock is a false sense of security anyway. Don't consider it as 2kg but rather as 1kg heavier than what you would otherwise carry. It's also not cheap, but as I said, I'm happy to pay to feel confident.

First off if you are reading this you must be after a serious bike lock, and lets be honest we all want something that keeps our bicycle ours.

I had my old lock for 15 years but a recent spate of bike thefts in my home town kinda got me to thinking it might be worth getting something a little more serious, its a well known fact that if a bike theif is serious about getting your bike they will use whatever they have to to steal it, because bike thieves are b*stards. with this thought in mind i did a bit of research and decided on the Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit mini lock, catchy name.
The lock itself is quite heavy, its in fact the kinda heavy that you can't get a mount for it, i quite like the weight it means that when you leave the house you know its in your bag because the difference is massive, this is a bad thing if you are doing a bit of shopping as lock + cat food and pasta is a very heavy rucksack.
I was at first a little worried about the size but my old lock seemed to have a massive empty space and i figured i don't need that space, i did draw out the size of the lock so i could try and see weather i could live with it... As a point of note the sizes (8.3cm x 153cm) is the internal space i.e. the space inside the D shape. Also the quoted 18mm size of the U bit is the actual metal diameter so with the vinyl cover thats closer to 21mm. The big bar part is massive... like the size of a popular energy drink with a male cow on the can.

As for the lock in use i have to say its good, my bike is still mine so thats always a good start. Minor points to note are the lock itself can (i've read this but not experienced it) move a bit, what i mean is the levers inside misplace and the key won't slide in properly.

Having pretty much waited for long enough for the price of this to drop from the 99-110 i'd seen it at for yrs, i found a bargin at 45. Best money spent on a lock so far. Even at the quoted 60, i'd say it is a lot of lock for the money - but with limitations. Peace of mind is the main pluspoint, because that 2kg.... i'm not small and i'm used to carrying big packs, but this thing has weight and you feel it. So it does not lend itself to trips away for example. But it's ideal if youtravel to one place, or leave your bike outside regular and can perhaps leave it locked there for when you need it - but this defeats the object of the 'mini'. As mentioned elsewhere, i concur that the insides,if used in allweathers as all my locks have to be, does cause problems if not looked after from time to time. The lockingballs have stucka couple of times for me, but i'm positive that this is because ofthe extremes of weather. I've even dropped my lock off a bridge with the key in it; the key shattered but everything else survived intact.

If you want portability, and are not in a high crime spot, i'd go with the Kryptonite Evolution Mini Lock with Bracket; It's more rucksack friendly. Otherwise, and you can spare 60.. i don't see better out there without getting a lot bigger.

Just got mine today and was impressed by how sturdy (and heavy) it is. The keys are also pretty thick which is not always the case with bike locks, I have found on a few occasions that it is often the key that lets the lock down because they are too flimsy. I think I will have to find a couple of new places to lock my bike because the size of this would prohibit its use on some of my usual anchor points. I,m glad I bought this lock because it inspires confidence and it must be worth the extra for peace of mind..the thieves would really struggle with this lock and more than likely seek an easier target. If you are considering this check all the reviews on its competitors and you will find this lock is the bees knees.
