I heard many good things about the Kryptonite Mini 7 lock so purchase one of them but while it is a good, strong lock. I found it a bit of a pain to carry as it was too big to mount on my frame.
I doscovered the bordo line of Abus locks and they sounded like just the ticket. As flexible (ish) as chain locks but as tough as D Locks.
The lock is a good size, easy enough to get it round the frame, rear wheel and a fixed mount. Folds up in to a nice compact size which you can mount on the frame in its rubber holder.
The bars are covered in hard rubber to protect your frame as well.
When reading up on this lock I discovered that ABUS had released a sold secure silver rated version of the lock which I thought this one was. Sadly this lock is rated at bronze, as confirmed by the packaging.
Overall, really like the lock but ended up swapping it for the silver rated lock from my local store which was at the same price.
This lock is a little short, I couldn't do much more with it than get my frame and wheel together, perhaps the longer models would be more adaptable. The way it folds also makes it a little awkward to get it around stuff and to get the final section back into the lock. It's not like a cable lock, each joint only rotates on one plane, so you can't just grab the end and put it through your wheel like a cable, you have to unfold, slot it through your wheel, then rotate the ends so that the lock is facing the right way and then get the final section in and lock it. The key also feels poor in comparison to the u-mini. The u-mini is unbelievably smooth and feels strong and well-engineered. This one feels like it's a little off, needs jiggling a bit and wants some encouragement to sort itself out, which is a shame.
I paid about £20 for this. If you're looking for a primary lock, I'd probably recommend the Abus U-mini over this for an extra fiver or so, less moving parts to deal with and it just feels nicer to use. But as a secondary lock I can't imagine anything better really. Beats cables and definitely better than a second D-lock in terms of portability.
This is more of a shopping, or hair-cut type lock, but for a more expensive bike.
First things first. No lock stands up against a petrol angle grinder, so think about that when you park your bike down a dark alley, so no one can see it. Well no one can see the guy with the petrol angle grinder cutting your locks off either.
However assuming you're up against an opprtunist thief, this provides a great alternative.
It is not possible to cut like a cable lock, but it's not easy to jack off like a d-lock either, but it's much much lighter than a good d-lock.
So I'd not use this as one of my main 2 locks for commuting (I'd have a big chain and a big d-lock, both of which I'd leave in my office draw. However for a I'm enjoying my cycle and want to stop for a pint, it's great.
I have been using the lock for over a year now, and the rubber coating is one thing that is not terribly resilient, it has quite a few dings in it where little bits have been "chipped" away. That said, it is still nicely protected to make sure it doesn't damage my bike frame, it just looks "well used". The mechanism of the lock itself and the pivotting of the bars is pretty much as smooth as when it was new.
The lock itself is sometimes slightly more of a challenge to get around things than a normal chain/cable, simply because of it's bars. It will go round pretty much anywhere that a chain will, but it sometimes needs a little more work to get it to go. It is a small price to pay for such a conveniently compact lock solution.
It does its job excellently, and I'd be more than happy buying another one if for some reason I needed to.

Seems to be a sturdy lock and is easily attachable to the frame of the bike when pedalling. Only criticism is the weight which is as described - 1.2kg.Published 9 months ago by Peter B
