Cheapest U/D lock I could find for bicycles.
40% off RRP of GBP 9.99 - Manufactured by Oxford Products.

Two sizes:
(180 x 245cm) GBP 5.99
(180 x 320cm) GBP 6.99

Made from tough reinforced steel * Quick release carrying bracket included.
Anti-pick abloy[sic] key design * A quality lock at a premium price.

Just realised that 'abloy' is a locking mechanism, and not a typo for 'alloy'... Although on hindsight, an "alloy key" doesn't really make much sense as well... - dcdreamcaster

Their tagline for their warehouse/shop seems to be:
"Come and visit us as the best stocked bike shop in the world."
:-D

crc are an awesome firm. highly recommended.
in fact they are probably consistently the best online shop i've used and stuff usually arrives next day.
#15
Thanks very much....just what I was looking for (medium size is still in stock and worth the extra £1)! Also managed to get a steel rope for £3.99 to secure wheel/seat etc.

Has anyone here had a u-lock broken and their bike stolen? I always thought u-locks were the safest, but apparently they can be broken??

I have a standard u-lock and i'm thinking of thinking of getting a steel wire lock with armoured rings as a secondary on top of the u-lock :D
#17
:thumbsup: Thank you!
Ordered the lock and the padded shorts liner (41% off those). Anything for a comfy ride :-D

Yes I had two bikes stolen, both had high quality U locks, I mean £40 insurance approved locks one was a Squire it had a "pick proof lock", but the thieves picked the lock then re locked it, But the lock was jammed and it could not be used again. I sent it to Squire but they did not reply.

U locks protect against kids and opportunists but not against professional thieves,

I've also read online that if the U lock is big enough for a mechanical jack to fit in, then it can be jacked open using brute force...
My bike is not exactly an expensive one, so I suppose a GBP5.99 U lock is good enough for it. A more expensive one might justify the use of this, apparently one of the toughest lock available!

I have used the Newyork lock before, it is very thick and heavy, the downside is its narrow and dosnt fit over posts ect.

I think almost all major U-lock manufacturers have stopped using the "circular" type of key/lock which can be opened with a suitably-sized pen barrel as shown in the video clip. :)

Kryptonite changed their locks years ago and let people exchange their old ones...

Thought I'd bump this one up again, as it really is a great buy, mine arrived this morning and I don't think you'll better it for the money.

Plus finding a pen is a pain in the **** when you're out nicking bikes....
A lock is just a deterrent anyway. With wire cutters and an allen key a thief could have the bar and stem off in seconds- £80 carbon bars, £60 hope stem, £20 grips, £40 XT brake levers, £80 XTR shifters on my bike- thats a lot of money that's unprotectable if locked up outside! Of course, round here they're more likley to jump up and down on your wheels till they buckle, the little gits
