Hand Bolt cropped in 7secs,
This review is from: Abus City Chain-X-Plus 1060 - Black, 85cm (Sports)
I watched zanx from Almax bolt crop this in seconds at the NEC, quite shameful considering the cost if it. Need at least 13mm to stop bolt croppers

Almax who did this also make bike locks, not suspicious yet ? I sure am. The bolt croppers used were huge hydraulic ones, these would also cut through an Almax chain. Also used bolt croppers about 4/5 feet long. An everyday item to be walking around with ? Don`t be fooled by these "demonstrations" this chain is Thatcham approved which is independent unlike Almax. It has a security level of 15, has a Gold on sold secure for insurance, suppose they got all that for being easy to destroy. of course not.

Durham-UK does have a good point. I have 2 Abus locks (Bordo 6000/120 and Multiloop 210) and I have to say, they are super tough/strong. Just bought a £1969,- electric bike, so having it super-secured, is very important to me. Am saving to also buy this lock (Abus City Chain X Plus 1060) if I can get a good price. With the 3 locks, I reckon that'll certainly deter the most avid bike thief!!!!

Stevan, thanks. I would be a paranoid wreck if I was leaving a bike of that value, mine has an ebay value of around 300, and still sweat when I leave it. Study where chain is, pretend you are a worthless thief, how would you gain leverage to operate croppers ? High up is always best, this is rather obvious though I would think. There is a guy who leaves his outside Durham Tesco, with a skinny chain, lying on the ground !!! Has been doing that for over a year now and he still has a bike. Wasn`t mega expensive but much more than mine, he should do the lottery as must be a lucky guy----- or Durham folk are very honest. From what a policeman friend told me, if it`s lying unchained, it could vanish fast, local crooks couldn`t be bothered to cut even a small chain as, he tells me, are mostly those of opportunity. Cheers
