This review is from: Abus City Chain-X-Plus 1060 - Black (Automotive)
The "Power Link" has a plastic manchette that keeps the protective fabric in place ( we are talking about the tail end of the chain, the part that goes into the locking receiver bit). After two weeks of use, "Power Link" was broken. While unlocking the chain, it must have fallen on the ground and being crushed by the chain's own wight. While the metal parts are all still in place, and the chain still locks properly, we already have parts of the locking mechanism exposed. The fabric around the chain is now not held in place properly and starts degrading already. At this point we are still talking about cosmetic damages but it is disappointing for a product of this price. The retailer who sold me this, discouraged me from sending it in as Abus would usually not grand any of such claims in his experience ... Also you cannot use this chain in combination with those flexy steel cables that you could use to secure your saddle or second wheel. At this point I'm already looking at Kryptonite and their offer where there is no plastic to break off and a mini d-lock that can be combined with additional steel cables, same price ... It all seems to make so much more sense to me at this point ... Anyhow, it still is a very secure chain, albeit with caveats.
