Very good for low risk areas
on 13 August 2016
I didn't realise there was so much choice (& potential cost) involved in buying a bike lock, but after much research I can tell you there is. This lock is a good length, looks the part, won't scratch your bike, will fit round most things you want to secure your bike to & will stop an opportunist. For the price I therefore give it 4 stars.
But if you have an expensive bike or use it in a high risk area you need to spend more. About £25 I would say for a kryptonite or on-guard d lock (sold secure gold). This lock & chain would not hold out against the experienced or equipped thief. The chain & lock are not strong enough for that.
For me it suits, my bike is old, I use it in a low risk area & I'm never gone for long, for that purpose it's great for the price. But please don't go into a city & put it on an expensive new bike. It's not designed or priced for that.
