Good lock, lousy attachment system,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kryptonite Bike Lock & Flex Cable (Sports)
In the year I've owned this lock it's been very reliable. My bike hasn't been stolen yet (unlike my last one with a mid-price Halfords lock) and the key doesn't jam in the lock like it can with cheaper locks. I do have to say my bike is stored in a locked biked shed at night and undercover at work so the lock hasn't been exposed to the full range of elements yet. What does let the whole package down is the method of attaching the lock to your bike. A fabric strap is soaked and pulled tight around the frame and held in place with the clip. The idea is that as the strap dries it will shrink and tighten even more. The problem comes as the clip is very tight and it can be a struggle to remove the lock from it (especially when it's raining!). Over a few months this constant shimmying works the fabric strap loose until the lock starts flapping around when you cycle requiring the installation to be repeated.
