4.0 out of 5 stars Kryptonite Evolution Mini 7, 29 Aug 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kryptonite Evolution Mini 7 lock with 4 foot kryptoflex cable with FlexFrame bracket (Sports)
This is my first bicycle lock and I had to read a lot of reviews before deciding what lock to choose. Small U-locks seem to have the best reputation, and Kryptonite is among the most recommended brands (just make sure you're not buying an old kryptonite with that BIC-pen problem). The lock is pretty small, but just enough, no extra space left between your bike and a bike rack/pole. Light enough to carry in a bag, it can also be attached to the pannier rack. No real need for the complicated u-bracket. Haven't tried the flex cable, it looks sturdy, but I'm thinking of getting a second u-lock to do what the Kryptonite website calls "ultimate security lock-up". By the way, do check the website for proper lock-up instructions and to register your keys, and if you're lucky to live in one of the countries covered by the anti-theft insurance, do register for it too.

UPDATE: Haven't bothered to get another lock for almost a year, but after noticing that someone attempted to break it (unsuccessfully! the lock is now lightly chipped in two places), I'm going to get a chain lock as well, something like this Kryptonite Evolution Series 4 Mini Chain 55cm.

If you're going to use two locks then use two different kinds of lock - that way if a thief manages to defeat one of the locks they'll have to use a totally different method to defeat the second one. That way you're making the thieve's life as difficult as possible.

I second that. Don't get two D-locks, get a cable
