This review is from: Kryptonite Bike Lock & Flex Cable (Sports)
I used this lock to take my mountain bike all over the place, and I have evidence that it does the job.
My bag got stolen, which had my bike locks keys in it. Due to this, my bike was locked up in a dodgy part of town, and I had no way of retrieving my bike other than cutting it lose.
Tools we used: Fireman bolt cutters, handsaw, a van, a saw.
All of those failed. The bolt cutters left about an impressive mark on it as a toddler would if it chewed it. The handsaw did nothing, the van did nothing, the saw did nothing.
In the end we had to use a mains powered angle grinder and a diamond level saw disk, even then it took a good 15 minutes and the diamond level saw disk was in complete tatters, and had to be thrown away.
Not bad for £20. Although the difficulty was with the MAIN LOCK. The extra CABLE came off pretty easily.

Good review but be aware its all food for bike thieves. If someone wants your bike they'll have it using the methods you've described. I had the Series2 for 3yrs with no problems and only recently dropped it in the river locking my town bike up outside a riverside bar. Luckily i retained the barrel end with my keys and will be purchasing another soon! This £35 lock is good for a sub £300 runaround as it fulfils the 10% rule. As for £1000+ Mt bikes, well i wouldn't lock them anywhere but in a secured garage!
