    my poundland lock has served me well for 2 years now. Then again, it is worth more than the bike itself.

    No. These are actually pretty good and you can't unlock them with a biro in 2seconds.

    Round lock/barrels are immune to bumping. It's a good thing.

    These generic D locks are next to useless. You'd be mad to use these to secure anything other than a throwaway bikes. Just have a read of the reviews and how it easy to break locks even the middle of the range ones from Abus.

    Ultimately all you're gonna do is slow them down. It's a simple calculation of bike value vs area risk. If you have a crap bike in a low crime area, then it's not worth getting a £50 lock, as it's unlikely it'll be worth thieves time, if there are better risk/reward options available to the thief.
    D-Lock is a hell of a lot better than any cable locks, they're cut in seconds with a 1-1.5 foot bolt cutter thats backpack portable.
    And cylinder locks are fine now, the whole "biro" thing was with specific Kryptonite locks like 10-20 years ago. No cylinder lock nowadays will have the same vulnerability.
    Try to get "double locking" d-locks, as that makes them twice as hard to break. Though likely they'll be attacked with a bottle jack, and bust open from the inside. Abus do parabolic shaped d-locks to resist this attack.
    Personally I prefer Abus as a more reliable brand.

    I have an eye catching bike in a high bike crime city (Cambridge), so I got a Pragmasis chain (11mm width) and Squire SC50CS lock. Cost £110 and weighs 5kg but you'll need either 4 foot bolt croppers or 5+ minutes with an angle grinder. That was the cheapest/lightest option to rule out 95% of attacks. Still open to a van and a big man with huge bolt croppers though.

    Ultimately your best defence is where you lock it, leave it in the open, where people can't work on it for long periods and not be noticed, and don't leave it for too long, especially overnight! And if you see someone has superglued the lock, don't leave it, it's a trick to get you to leave it overnight so they can hack away at it.

    If that's the same lock on sale at sainsburys, thats an amazing deal. It's Sold Secure Gold rated, which means it should resist the common types of attacks for several minutes. Normally gold rated locks are easily £30-40+.

    all sounds good advice, I have a kryponite NY 3000 which I attach to the back and run a kryptoflex thru the front wheel. i mostly only lock it at work which has CCTV or outside a shop for 10-30 mins maximum.

    if someone did superglue my lock, what do you suggest? get hold of an angle grinder from somewhere? I think it would be better for it to get stolen and be able to claim on my insurance, the excess would be slightly cheaper than a new lock and I'd get a new bike. or is there a way to 'unglue' a superglued lock?

    With the sainsburys lock comes a small fob on the keys with a code number on it. Notice the key replacement service on the advert for the proper lock. I emailed Oxford and asked about the code. I got an email back saying that the replacement service has now changed and it is a case of going to a specified retailer that can cut their keys. But that code is for their locks.

    depending on neck size asphyxiation may occur.
