Thought this was a cracking price for what looks to be a very durable and hard wearing bike lock. Only 79p when i was looking through the store today.

Ideal for anyone needing one and seeing as you can pay around £3 - £4 for one then the price is great.

Oxford Bicycle bike security hoop lock 600mm length 12mm cable.

You will find these located around the car accessories section, well thats where i found them anyway.

Cheers,

Can any cold voters please give me a reason why. Thanks.

Wow ... amazing deal.

Great to use as with a larger lock.
#2
If you only value your bike at 79p then go ahead and use this....
But you can cut through these in seconds with a hacksaw, and even a pair of wire cutters will chomp through them as easily as a hot knife through butter. The reason being is that it is strands of steel wire in the cable.
Do yourself a favour and get a U Lock that is solid steel.

Its better than no lock at all. Plus them U lock ones arent the easiest to carry around.

At least with this one its light and easily stored.

It depends on user preference i suppose, i can see your point though.

What a load a cheap and nasty Tat...:roll:

Take me less than 5 seconds to have this off and be down the road with your bike..Go on people buy it...I could do with a new bike or two..:-D

The U Locks always come with a bracket that clamps to the upright part of the frame, this stores the U Lock securly to the bike when not in use.
This lock may be better than no lock at all, but no one is stupid enough to leave a bike with no security lock in the street. A thief will pick on a bike that is the easiest to steal, and I guarantee he will pick a bike with a lock such as this as opposed to a U Lock.
Put a lock like this on a half decent mountain bike and one day you will return to an empty space where your bike used to be.

You from Liverpool by any chance? Lol just kidding before all the kopites vote this deal cold.

Then again i seem to always get cold votes on my deals due to my avatar :?

I sometimes use a cheaper lock to loop through my saddle in some areas. Just to stop people running off with my seat post and saddle. For that this lock would probably be ok.

As Biker Jeff pointed out, probably not suitable for the whole bike. There are alternatives to U locks though. I got a fairly decent coiled specialized one and it has protected my bike for years!

When I was at Newcastle Poly (before it became a poncy Uni) I used one of these outside Fenwicks in Northumberland Street and my bike got knicked..........in its place was a cheap bike, so I suppose the git was upgrading as he went !!!!! Bl**dy geordies, waaaalking the dog and all that.. hadaway and *****
#9
do not buy these! regardless of the price! i had two of these on my bike attached to a stand. b**tar*ds stole it anyways
#10
COLD.
It seems cheap, but the nature of the items is supposed to "secure" a bike.
That locker certainly gives a false impression of security and users feel they are safe with it, even though it is definitely not the case.
As it was mentioned before this locker can be broken with basic tools (even pliers) and very quickly. Thieves can get this lock cut open easily.

Buying 10 of them won't change!

So for these reasons, it's COLD as it is not ensuring any security.
#11
My mate had his wheels nicked.
What are you going to secure?
Frame or one wheel?

U-bolt or one of these is academic, they'll still nick what isn't secured.
#12
Bought 2 of these a few weeks ago from HB for the same price. They are spot on and the locking mechanism is tight and feels quality. I use them for sus forks and front wheel ;-)

Would not use them for securing the whole bike as they are kinda thin. I use a larger heavy duty Oxford cable for that!
#13
I've personally been a victim of bike theft, down to my own stupidity forgetting to bring my D lock I was left with one similar to this. Was outside for a couple of hours, returned and the bike was gone. Never again. Invest around £15 for a decent lock that will protect your bike.

I can recommend ChainReactionCycles (as I'm sure many others could)

i bought two so as to attach the front wheel to the frame and the back wheel and frame to the stand. and i removed the seat they still knicked the lot. regardless of the way u secure the bike the hoop lock is sh*t quality

You put the lock around the frame and the back wheel.

wrong answer! do that n theyl take ur front wheel on its own like they did to me the first time. you need one that encompasses both wheels and the frame, that secures to the stand at the same time, and preferably either take your seat with you or attach it to the chain also
#17
I saw a bike locked with the U Lock around the frame and encompassing the rear wheel and the front wheel had been quick released and locked together with the frame and rear wheel to a railing. The seat and seat post the owner had taken with them.
Seemed a lot of bleeding hassle to me, but thats the world we live in.
#18
This lock is is much use as an ashtray on a motorbike. save your 79p

A single lock that wraps all around both wheels and the frame isn't as secure as a U-lock. You will provide extra security against the front wheel being stolen but your bike overall will be less secure. I'd rather use a U-lock to secure the most expensive part of my bike and take the risk with my seat post and front wheel. They're not hugely expensive to replace and people are less likely to steal just a single part of a bike.
#20
or just buy 2 u locks! i had to replace my front wheel , they tried to charge me £20 at the first shop but i got one for £10. still a lot of money having only bought the bike for £50 in the first place
#21
WOW!!That is really cheap way of getting your bike stolen :-)
#22
Where do you guys all live? No-one nicks front wheels round here and I'm in Reading..

If you're bike is so expensive in the first place, it won't be safe with any lock. The trick is to a have an el cheapo bike for trotting to the shops on, better still - give it a horrible paint job, pink and neon blue seem to deter.
#23
BTW - is there a front wheel second hand shop somewhere? I've never seen front wheels for sale second hand anywhere? Where do they all go ??

they go to cycle shops as second hand but are really just stolen parts

lots get stolen in nottingham! despite mine being el cheapo £50
#25
Of course, the most obvious solution is to have a nut / bolt and not quick release ...
#26
In the interest of clarifying things, this is not a security solution for a whole bike. It will get quickly chopped and your bike will vanish if it's all you use. However, this would be suitable for securing small items to the frame such as seatposts or maybe front wheels as a deterrent when used in conjunction with a more robust lock.

As a little by the by, most manufacturers recommend spending 10-15% of your bike's value on a lock. Just something to bear in mind.
#27
you'd be better investing in a nice doberman to tie to your bike when you nip to the shop, no chav would dare touch your bike with one of those chained to it :)

I think the chav's pitbull would scare your doggy!!
#29
I've got one of these, we used to use it for locking the ladder to a metal stut in our old terraced house behind a locked gate.

Anything more with more of a secuity risk then forget it!

When you lock your bike up somewhere you want to avoid being the person with the best bike and worst lock. Ideally you want an old clanger with a lock that is worth more than the bike!

#33
