4.0 out of 5 stars Solid so far!, 26 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kryptonite Bike Lock & Flex Cable (Sports)
Pros

- 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.

Cons

- 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!

Hello there,

I like your review! I usually only use my bike for fitness (home>cycling>home) but I recrently joined a gym, so I'm going to use my bike and lock it up in town to save petrol (going there and back a few times a week). Sorry for ramble lol. My question is, do you know if they still offer the refund if your bike is stolen?

Hi. The 'refund' hinges upon you registering your bike lock with the company. I would suggest you go on to Kryptonite's website / e-mail them to confirm the guarantee that they offer. You will need to register your lock first.

Thank you for getting back to me! Another question if I may. Is the flex cable long enough to go round the back wheel and the saddle? Or would I need another flex cable for that? I'll be locking my bike outside my gym during the day. Very public place, but you know, peace of mind. I thought about taking the saddle off and putting it in my locker, but that's a hassle everytime. So I wondered if I'd need another cable or not...

THe cable's pretty long. I secure the frame and front tyre with it then lock it into the U-lock. I bought it for locking up at my gym too and it worked well enough. At the end of the day, if a crim's determined enough they'll be able to take the lock off but it certainly will prevent opportunists and it's worked well for me so far.

So is the cable included long enough to go through the saddle and back wheel too?
