This version, LH/SP (NKR) I have now established is only suitable for bike frames built with the appropriate fitting for these types of lock - which you attach with supplied bolts and mounting plate.
The CL version is appropriate for aftermarket fitting, and comes with specific bands to attach the lock to the seat stays of your bike. (However even the CL version may be unsuitable for some bikes with the rear derailleur cable routed down the seat stays).
I have just bought a Specialized Crosstrail with Hydraulic disc brakes, this leaves the "V" brake braze-ons free (actually have a bolt in them) this lock fits them perfectly with the 2 caphead bolts provided, took me 15 mins start to finish. Possible downside ~ if the bike was left unlocked someone could remove the lock if they knew how the bolt concealing covers are removed, but if the bike were unlocked they could take the bike anyway.
It is also possible to add a second fixing, the lock has a plate that you can insert 2 small coachbolts through then secure to the lock with 3 self tappers (this is in effect at the rear of the ABUS name plate), I then made a small retaining plate which clamps the top of the lock to the top of the seat stays, there is a plastic spacer that fits between the lock and the plate I made.
Abus could look at providing one with the kit.
Adding this extra fixing added about 40 mins to the fitting time. The additional cable or chain are well worth buying, but I did wait until I knew the lock fitted before buying one.
ABUS take note, I've contacted many dealers by e-mail and phone they have very little understanding of "IF" or "HOW" this lock fits to bikes, yet for the majority of leisure cyclists this would be ideal.
So, a good lock for me, why? ~ I'm retired and cycle for fitness and fun, I do not normally leave my bike where I cannot see it, coffee stops, pub stops etc. I wanted a lock that allowed me to use a water bottle fitted in the frame and was not too heavy or cumbersome and this fits the bill perfectly. I do use additional locks ~ "U" lock's & chain when away with the caravan and leaving the bikes locked to the van.
Final comment, only suitable for city / town worker use with additional locks.
It allows you to lock the bicycle quickly without fiddling with chains and u bolt type locks. Ideal for those quick nip into the store type moments.Its always on your bicycle so there's no chance you will forget it.
The only draw back is that a determined thief can carry the bike off, so I recommend using a chain or u bolt lock if leaving bike for a longer time frame.
They come in thicker sizes over in Holland.
And better than the Defender and Type 7 models (both of which I've got) since some Dutch thieves may have discovered how to pick the older locks.
All of them are extra secure because the bad guys only carry pocket bolt-croppers. The smaller sizes of lock-breakers require them to stamp on the arms - they can only do this with locks/chains near the ground.
While these horseshoe locks are superb for shopping type security, they are not a complete solution. If someone might carry off your pride and joy, then you also need the plug in chain to attach to a fixed object. One key for 2 defenses, both of them easier/faster locking than any other system. And much lighter/easier to carry than any alternative.
I have no connection to Abus other than being a fan for over 25 years.
Added - horse-shoe locks are fitted to the bicycle cheaply, quickly and very effectively with self-tapping screws driven into the seat-stays. If you don't wish to do this (aluminium frame maybe?) then cable ties are perfectly acceptable. Abus also do two kinds of after-market fitting kits. The "claw" type is good but the worm driven strap type is a bit iffy.
