About the most secure lock you can buy, 30 April 2013
I bought this lock because by bike was stolen and I didn't want the same thing to happen again to its replacement.
The lock itself is fine, it's big enough to secure the frame and back wheel to a post, it's solid, the locking mechanism is easy to turn (unlike some locks that I have owned) and the rubber coating protects the frame. On the down side it rattles and it is very heavy.
The bracket is pants. I read the poor reviews of the bracket and decided that the other users weren't fitting it correctly, I was wrong. Tighten it up as much as you can and it soon loosens off and swings out at the most inconvenient moments. It's frustrating because most bikes have various threaded holes in the frame to accommodate drinking bottle holders, couldn't they use these to make a really secure attachment. A lock of this weight really needs a land anchor from the QE2 to hold it properly.
In conclusion I like the lock but have to carry it around in a shoulder bag instead of attaching it to the frame. Not how I was intending to use it but better than having another bike stolen.
