Thanks, the lock itself will need replacing by the sound of it but good for the chain.
#2
Great lock, bought one last time it was on sale!
#3
Thanks reserved for collection i suppose this should be ok for bicycle
#4
reserved the last one

HOT

though I dont know why they put cheap looking plastic padlocks on. Its an invitation in itself.
#5
I've got one. Good chain but let down by the terrible plastic and aluminium (I would guess) lock body. I would agree with chaplin that the lock is an invitation in itself.
#6
By the looks of it, it would probably weigh more then a push bike :D

Just a warning that a decent pair of bolt-cutters would go through this like a hot knife through butter.

i was just about to say the same thing, this will be a decent deterrent for opportunist's but a pro will have this chain off in seconds

Ok for a push bike, wouldn't trust it to protect anything of value


Pushbikes can not have high value?

I have one of these, was impressed by the chain (Its a decent weight/thickness, and the right length to wear over a shoulder when riding a bike) however the lock has to be the most awful piece of tat I have ever seen. I was shocked by the lightness of it, I think I could knock it off with bawdy language and rap melodies, let alone any sharp impliment. Its a shambles.

Still I replaced the lock, and I have a serious amount of hipster/courier style going on.. Its a darn tidy fabric covered chain.

and whatsThePoint? What is a 'Push Bike'. Do you mean one of those bikes from halfords you spend most of your time pushing, because its too painful to pedal (_;) (PS That word is my pet hate, usually used by pig-ignorant coppers when your 2 grand mountain bike has just been nicked. "Why did you spend so much on a push bike?")

So Hot, ish!

actually halfords are selling some decent entry level bikes now, Carrea fury Boardman HT voodoo hoodoo
#12
As already stated the locks on these are rubbish, they can be opened with a screwdriver or any bit of metal.
#13
I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole to be honest... not for a motorcycle or a pushbike of any great worth.
#14
Will stick to my kryptonite
#15
one word for me , , , waste of money !!

Sceptical ferret is sceptical :D

When they stop selling those awful apollos I may give them they time of day, but until then they will be filed in my brain as 'Tesco Bikes'

I have a GT Frame, made 'Especially for Halfords'. Weighs an absolute ton for utterly no reason.
#17
me an me bredz luv deze - we can blatant nik enuf bikez coz o deze tingz innit bruv.
#18
I got this to leave at work, I already have a kryponite d-lock I take with me but its nice to have a secondary as well. You only have to look less nickable than the bike next to you after all!
#19
well Ive bought it for a bicycle which is I suspect is its main target audience

If I had a motorbike or even moped I'd aim higher tbh
#20
bought for adult fun cheers
#21
For my electric bike I had Gold Sold Secure rated motorbike style chain lock and a D-lock...chained to my partners normal bike with a cable lock. Bit OTT but security is worth the extra penny and hassles if your "wheels" (of whatever type!) are your pride and joy like my electric bike was hehe
#22
great deal hot
#23
Does anyone know how much this lock weighs?

I'm thinking of buying this to lock my bike in China, but looks heavy! oO

Thanks

This probably cost a few pence to make in china, why not buy one for a few pence why you get there :|


I've been told to buy one from the UK, as the thieves will be unfimiliar with the locks! :|
#25
I got this bad boy, but believe me a determined thief will get through anything..........it's really a deterrant to the casual thieving scum.

I got a pretty good chain lock from getgeared.co.uk - Like some people have said you need to change the lock with something better...
#27
Honestly, chain locks are only good in a size/weight that is impractical to carry around. This cheap chain (9.5mm dia with no details of any hardening process) can be chopped in seconds with a small bolt-cutter concealable under a light jacket.

If you must go for a chain lock in this size Pragmasis do a range of boron-hardened steel chains and locks starting at 8mm that will be much tougher. However you will note that they still don't claim that these are particularly secure.

Pragmasis Chains

If your bike is worth more than a couple of hundred quid get a GOOD U-lock/shackle, they provide the best security for the price and the Abus ones come with very good frame mounts.

Again, a link to a thread with More than you ever wanted to know about bike locks

most theives dont carry "bolt cutters" lol the cheap locks can be popped easily with a simple screw driver or small metal bar.

this WILL deter many

Keep living in your dreamland... Any proper bike thief will have bolt cutters: it's the basic tool of the trade. Anybody that's going to have a go at stealing your bike with a screwdriver is purely an opportunist.
If you only want to protect your bike against this type of thief why don't you go for a reasonable cable lock, it'll weigh 500g instead of 2kg and be much easier to wrap round your bike/waist. I think your bike will still get stolen but at least you'll be more comfortable in the meantime.
#30
A deterrent is all you need, as long as someone else nearby has less. For the professional thief forget it, my old bike was targetted and the ******* kicked **** out of the wheels because they couldn't get through the locks. Still resulted on an insurance claim, only difference is there was less chance of the little scrote ODing off the fix he bought with the proceeds.

TBH I've just accepted that I'll lose this one too, but I need to make sure the insurance company are happy that its locked. And as I work in a college there are always easier targets, and my commuter is not the most expensive bike there.
#31
Just remember to check the small print of your insurance document. Almost all require that your bike be secured with a lock that has at minimum a bronze 'Sold Secure' rating, depending on it's value.

Locking it with something that isn't on the list (Like the lock in this deal) invalidates your insurance.
