4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a Second (ie Front Wheel) Lock, 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ABUS 40/130HB140 U-Mini U-Lock (Sports)
I bought this as a secondary lock to secure the front wheel. My main lock is a Kryptonite NY3000 + cable lock.

One 'error' in Amazon's description, this lock's RRP is £49.99, not £69.99 as they state. That's the price of the chunkier Abus 401 mini-U lock. Although many online retailers appear to have made the same mistake in their descriptions. Probably because both locks look the same.
The shackle is 14mm with a 1mm thick rubber sheath. So the 15/16 mm descriptions are also a little confusing.

Used as a secondary/front wheel lock, (for my bike) this lock is the perfect size to fit around the downtube and front wheel rim - with the shackle (U) around the downtube, and the straight bar between the spokes - with almost no play. This makes it difficult for anyone to remove the front fork without destroying the front wheel.
