I have a Kryptonite NY but got one of these a wee while ago when they were down at a tenner.
Rather heavy but a small price to pay if you have a £3000 ATB.
Definitely recommended!
Note: you don't get the ground anchor..I didn't

If anyone is interested I have two brackets that fit to the wall of a house with a chain to fit a padlock to, for securing your bike outside.

Anyone interested PM me.

(I hope that I am allowed to post that but if not then I will remove my post. It's just that I have no need of them and they are brand new.)

cheers! available at my local store reserved for collection 2moro:thumbsup:

heat and rep on its way...................

The Oxford brand is well known and trusted, grab a bargain while you can. Not got a lock, get one, thousands of bikes stolen every year.

Good price compared to other stores but....... If you're planning on locking anything valuable with this lock then don't. Locks costing 20 times the price of this can be cut in seconds, a decent low cost pair of bolt cutters will go through this chain like butter. Check this out: ]http//ww…u6Q

probably overkill for a mountain bike.

...............You have my utmost respect mate.I think the same as you.:thumbsup:

Oxford is a good brand and well rated by insurers. I have an Oxford Enigma disc lock on my bike and it's still parked in my garage (I hope!).

So what kind of lock do you suggest then?

If I am wanting a lock to secure a bike in the East end of London what lock would you suggest?

The bike is worth around £100.

D-locks are supposed to be the safest aren't they?

Supposedly the Almax chains have never been cut by hand ]http//ww…uk/ I couldn't find any details of the chain being cut by hand, which is why i bought a chain and lock from these guys. I live in London and lock my R1 up with it and haven't had any trouble so far (touch wood)

They do a smaller version for bicycles also.

Oxford is ok for low risk items but i can assure you, if you had a 2009 R1 in your garage that Enigma would be the only thing left in your garage.

I used to own the top of the range oxford monster chain and lock to secure my bike but after seeing a few vids on youtube i soon saw the light.

Are thes the oxford anchors? If so, how much incl. postage?

This lock will be fine if you have a decent garage alarm too, no-one is going to faff trying to cut a lock with an alarm blaring?

Or maybe it won't, but beyond a good lock and alarm I'm not sure what more you can do ... My kitchen overlooks the garage block, I keep a good supply of ball bearings and a black widow handy - oooooh a bearing to the **** would smart.

Enigma is Sold Secure and Thatcham approved. Probably one of the best disk locks around. But of course you can still pick up a bike and put it in the back of a van when it's got a disk lock on!!!

But getting back to the original post £12 for an Oxford padlock and chain sounds like a good deal to me. It will certainly slow down opportunist bicycle and scooter thieves.

You got a 2009 R1 then? :thumbsup:

does this have circular cross-section chain? If so this is the problem with the bolt croppers, hexagonal cross-section are harder to cut with croppers.

I've just bought one from my local Argos and nowhere does it say" Oxford" on it, unlike the picture on the Argos web site. Is it a special unbranded batch they've bought from Oxford or a cheap chinese copy? Either way it weighs a bloody ton, unfortunately weight is no guarantee of quality....or I'd be top class! Still, at £12.24 it's got to be good value.

We all love our bikes so lets keep em.

Some insurance companies offers discounts for SoldSecure & Thatcham products, and some won't insure the most nick-able bikes without these devices!

I bought 2 of these today and am disappointed that they are not Oxford, as suggested in the picture. The locks on them are absolute tosh and I reckon my 10 year old could bust them. I've decided to keep the chains, although they are steel not boron, as I already had a couple of quality Abus disc locks, so I've chained all the expensive items in the garage with them.

I wouldn't recommend these for anything that you do not want to go missing, trust me, I've lost enough gear in the past by not researching what actually works. That said, you pays your money and takes your choice.:thumbsup: to OP

The OP needs to change the title. These are definately NOT Oxford! The Argos photo is deliberately misleading by including an Oxford ground anchor that is sold separately.

No offence to the OP, it's an easy mistake to make - I bought one earlier and never noticed until I read the post by martroy. Having said that, I wouldn't have bought one at all if I hadn't read this incorrectly titled post!

It would have been a good price for an Oxford lock & chain. It's a so-so price for some no brand tat.

For that reason I'm voting cold.

Nope. Mine are NOT Oxford brackets either.

They are a DETERRANT and not completely thief proof.

Suitable for a £100 - £200 bike but NOT for a £2-3k bike, and fitted out front/ side, where it can be seen.

They are a 'J' shaped bracket with a chain across the opening where you can fit a padlock (which I also have some of (Abus))

Just purchased one of these only to notice once I returned home that it is not Oxford and very poor but I guess you get what you pay for and I will be taking this back.

Misleading title.
