5.0 out of 5 stars Self coiling is useful
My coil was red not blue. Self coiling is very useful to keep it compact. The tension keeps your bike tires straight. It would be less likely to find your bike lying flat on the ground when you come back.

2.0 out of 5 stars Abus cable
It was thinner than I expected. I use two D Locks in high bike crime areas. This is light and OK coupled with a D Lock to stop random passers by stealing your front wheel.

Okay for securing items on a car luggage / cycle rack. It’s far too thin to use with a D bolt if you want a cycle theft deterrent

4.0 out of 5 stars Bike lock, 22 Oct 2013

This review is from: Abus 1850 Coil Cable Single - Black, 185cm (DIY & Tools)
This is not a very exciting product so hard to make this review stand out!
However, a really good thing about this cable is that all parts are plastic coated so when putting on and taking of my bike, I do not end up with paint chips on the frame. You will need to get a good lock for this, preferably a key type, as it is hard to open combination locks in the dark!!

This review is from: Abus 1850 Coil Cable Single - Black, 185cm (DIY & Tools)
I use it with U-lock to secure my saddle. I left it with saddle when not in use, when I want to lock I just put the end into U-lock.

light weight. Suitable to lock your accessories, don't use it as primary lock.

I got red ending not blue as in the picture.

Good medium security cable,wraps itself up real tight which can take a bit of uncoiling to use but not a problem.Cheap too.

This review is from: Abus 1850 Coil Cable Single - Black, 185cm (DIY & Tools)
You get what you pay for really. This can be very easily cut through. Not much of a lock really.

Only took them seconds to cut through this cable and another padlock one I had on my bike. Do not buy to secure your bike.

The ABUS 1850 cable is perfect for securing my mountain bike at work 'just the job'. Good price, arrived a couple of days after ordering. What more could you ask for?
