5.0 out of 5 stars The smaller the better., 31 Aug 2011

This review is from: Kryptonite Evolution Mini Lock with Bracket (Sports)
Many previous reviewers have complained about the size of the lock. I don't feel that this is a flaw, if anything a U/D lock should be as small and thick as possible to minimise the possibility of a leverage based theft as well as minimise the space available for a thief to maneuver.

For those who are trying to lock the frame and tyre to a post; there is a much simpler solution:

Secure the BACK wheel to the post THROUGH the rear triangle of the frame (between the seat and chain stays). This way you are securing the rim to the frame and both to the post. Trust me, it is exceptionally difficult to saw through the rim of a wheel and pointless as the rear wheel is the second most expensive component. With that being said I would not recommend the use of this lock by itself if you are going to be leaving your bike unattended for long periods of time as it will leave your front wheel unsecured. Make sure the keyhole is facing DOWN as this makes lockpicking more awkward.

I have not had a problem with securing the lock to my frame using the plastic holder. It doesn't rattle but mine is attached to the top tube not the seat tube.

As a side note, the newer Evo locks are not prone to the infamous Bic pen attack and you can rest assured it will not be quite so simple to steal your bike.
