Thank you,will pop to my local store and have a look.My son has asked for a new bike for christmas so it would be great to have some extra bits to go with it :)

Bought one of these the other day - was £7.99! Will be v peed off if halved in price since then.

Haven't actually tried it, but it seems like a good sturdy D-lock.

We have this reduced amongst other stuff in my store too. It is a managers choice reduction but may be common. Cycle computer is £2.99. There is a pump as well, I think for £2.99. Gel saddles and other stuff too.

Alarm bells! If its a cheap ungraded lock, don't expect it to hold thieves off for long. Works great as a deterent though.

Think this has been on offer for a few months:- http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/bicycle-d-lock-reduced-from-19-99-3-99-huddersfield-sainsbury-s-1244218


Looks to me like a copy of the Oxford Magnum, but I doubt it is the same quality. Might be a Tonyon http://www.china-lockset.com/test/gsl/prouductven.asp?id=552

At that price, I'd be tempted to buy two and test one with a hacksaw, scaffold pole etc to see if it is ok.

At the end of the day, any bike lock can be broken by a determined thief. As you said its stop any passers buy from thinking of knicking your bike.

I saw this lock yesterday at Sainsbury close to Chancery Lane In London, this lock looks solid but it's very heavy. To heavy for me.

They reckon these are the tool of choice for those who smash car windows and steal from cars. They ride around on a bike and police can't stop them for carrying an implement to facilitate crime, because it's a bike lock.

I think you are right about it being a Tonyon. Amazingly I found one of these in my local Sainsbury's local and for a fiver I couldn't resist - if only to put through a wall anchor in my garage as it is a big, long, heavy lock.

It definitely isn't a lock I'd like to carry around on a regular basis as with mount and keys it weighs 1.84 KG. However - unlike Kryptonite it looks like the mount may actually fit, practically to your bike.

It is 16mm steel which is pretty good. I'd say it would be good if you were going out on a family ride and would be good for locking up a couple of bikes - maybe kids bikes as it is long enough to fit through 2 frames and an object.

I considered that and IMO it would take you an age to do that with a hacksaw but a BJ may do it although possibly causing damage to the bike.

Would definitely deter a casual opportunist thief. A good buy but probably too big and heavy to carry around for 1 bike - but if your bike is only a clunker - definitely OK.
