I had this lock recommended to me in Primera-Cycles in Bournemouth and it's £34.99 in there. A quick search online and this looks to be around the £30 in most places, making this an average of about a tenner cheaper.

I've bought 2 this morning as I'm getting 2 new bikes shortly, hopefully it'll be some use to someone.

Add £3.99 for delivery.

Oh, forgot to add delivery. It's £3.99 for delivery (was the same price for one or two locks), which still makes it pretty cheap.

I've got one, good lock but wont fit in my frame using the mounting bracket :(

EDIT: Thats the bikes fault though, funny shaped frame: This one

It's a good deal.

I have an older version of this from about 4 years ago. Whilst no-one has seemingly attempted to steal my bike; the lock is of good quality and feels like it'd take some time to force off.

I too have the issue of not being able to mount it on the frame (Specialized Hardrock). That's not a major problem for me though and doesn't stop this being a great deal.

What the guys in store said is that bike theft is an "opportunists game and the theif will want to get in and get out ASAP", the suggestion was that this is likely to slow someone down a lot more and is as good a deterrent as it is a lock.

Thieves are like water in that they go for the path of least resistance. You don't have to make your house/office/car/bike as secure as Fort Knox, just more secure than the others around you. It's not nice thinking that somebody else's property will get stolen but that's the way life is unfortunately.

That's a great price. Paid over £30 for mine.

Didn't bother to tell people about stuff that wasn't in stock. If people want to wait til Saturday to order and get it mid-next week sometime then, hey, it's no skin off my nose.

Same as the comment above.


As I understand it the majority of the gonvernment backed "Cycle to work scheme" vourchers for those people who's company support it, are to be posted this week , so there'll be more of a demand for decent locks like this as people want to protect their new investments.

If you want it tomororw (they use APC overnight), you've got this option from ATC. If you want it some time next week for a few quid less, you can wait for Amazon.

good price, managed to get the new york one for forty something quid last year and i'm sure this is up to the job
#12
For those people who dont want to spend so much on a lock, i have found the coiled coded ones in argos to be great! There about £7 or something an pretty good. This is good too though. :-) heat.
#13
Good deal. But I also need something on the outside of the house to attach it to!

I'm pretty sure this is no longer applicable to Kryptonite locks. It WAS a big problem, but it affected other companies as well. Most (if not all) of the big manufacturers have moved away from using the round keys for this very reason.

I personally use Abus locks on my bikes, but this is a decent lock at a decent price.

I've got one of these - managed to loose one of the keys a while back. With just one spare left, I contacted the manufacturer in the US, with the key number. A pack of three spare keys arrived in the post a few days later, free of charge.

If you scroll through all the youtube videos featuring these Kryptonite locks,they all look fallible.
I don't mean to hijack the post,just want to point out that these locks,like all locks,can be picked.

Fair enough GunnerGraham. I just wanted to point out that that video isn't applicable to the lock in this deal (or indeed any new Kryptonite lock).
#20
It don't matter what lock is on your bike, if they want that bike then they will have it, around where I am loads of bikes went missing and they just went through them with bolt cutters .

That video is at least three years old and in it the guy says he bought the lock when he went to college - and he's 30 or so in the vid. Kryptonite has changed its design since then. It was a great story but it's just not true any more.

As for £7 locks from Argos... by all means, use one of those. But if you're parked beside a bike using one of these, you can guess which one the tealeaves will go for first.
#22
Totally different key nowadays, also in a different position on the lock. As for the bolt cutters I don't think you'd get through the shackle with just those?
#23
Always spend around 10% bike to lock ratio.

I am buying a 11mm chain lock which is about 50.00 becuase of the bike I have, also some insurance comps want you to have a certain level, like gold, depending on bike vals

if you had a 2000.00 bike I would not lock it up with this, I can get a hammer and get this off with a few big swings..... Maybe, but would not risk it.

Accorinding to the guys in Primera-Sports this is an "insurance approved" lock for bikes upto £2000.

Agreed. I always lock my bike up next to a more expensive looking one and make sure mine look s as scruffy as possible.
#26
You can buy this on eBay for £19.58 delivered (brand new). I took receipt of mine yesterday. Not voting either way, as not everyone likes to buy from eBay.
#27
I'd always lock a bike up with 2 different types of lock to make life harder for the scrotes.
#28
Ebay has it for cheaper @ 19 , yet brandnew.

Mod edit. Ebay link removed. Item number is allowed ;)

Same. Seems like a good lock to me. Silver I think. Although everything is breakable if one tries hard enough. I personally have two locks, this and a slightly cheaper 1. Extra deterrents always help.

Amazon currently have these for £19.99 delivered. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kryptonite-KryptoLok-Standard-Lock-Cable/dp/B0010XTIB8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1305114007&sr=8-1
Just in case people were interested. I've just ordered one myself.
