I had the original New York lock from Kryptonite bought 10+ years ago iirc. I don't know where I bought it from nor what I did with the receipt but it failed this year (rusty lock mechanism). I remembered it being advertised with a lifetime warranty (as well it should for the price) so I completed the online warranty form hopeful but not expecting much.

It took this one email to Kryptonite with a photo of the lock and keys and they sent me a replacement (like for like - the current New York lock) without any hassle. I wasn't asked to produce the receipt or return the original or pay postage.

Excellent customer service.

As for the lock itself, I can't comment on this model but my bike was never stolen (so I presume the lock worked) and the company stood by their lifetime warranty so I'm pleased with them overall. Heat for the price.

Don't forget to regularly grease all keyholes and moving/connectible parts to stop the tealeaves from super gluing your Lock's!

​They never have keys anyway however it stops you taking your bike home. They can then break the lock later, still without the key.

What were you "Just saying"?

don't lose the key whatever you do!!

I bought one of these for around this price and must say its a excellent lock for the price

Thanks bought! Collecting Tomorrow ☺

Bought this exact lock about 3 years ago for this price and it's not bad. I like how it attaches to the frame and I was able to order extra keys when I lost one of my original ones.

Just be aware the cable is just for extra protection, not to be the main securing point. It can be got through in no time with a pair of snips, so make sure the main lock immobilises the bike.

Where did you bring it to?

haha I think i need to see if they have a good deal on a dictionary on here :P

Surely that should be "To where was it taken."

Cheers op - bought. Anyone know if it comes with a gizmo to connect it to a bike when not in use?

It's a decent lock, and yes, it has a holder to attach it to your frame.

It's worth Googling the video on how to attach the frame holder, it's not massively obvious to the newbie.

Good lock. Paid similar money around 3 years ago.
Frame attachment isn't the best. But I leave mine at work anyway.
Not the most secure lock. But as long as your bike isn't left exposed for too long should be sufficient deterrent for the opportunistic type of thief.

^ this, don't rely on the cable as said, they are cut very easily, within seconds.

Good price, but keep in mind this is Sold Secure Level 6. That's equivalent to Silver (silver is levels 6-10, bronze is 1-5, gold is 11-15). Some insurance companies will insist on a gold rating for bikes over a certain value. This should be ok for bikes up to a value of 2k (which is probably for most of us). There are tougher locks out there (usually in a matter of minutes). A determined thief with the right gear can get through any of them, it's just that they'll likely pick the bike with the easiest lock to break.

Sentencing error: thieves can break through pretty much any lock in a matter of minutes (was what I was trying to say!).

If you need a Gold rated lock and can live without the extender cable, this is a great price for a serious lock: tredz.co.uk/.On…htm

I assume he's stating that say you take your bike to work, an opportunistic thief will superglue the lock and toddle off. You finish at 5 and you can't get your bike unlocked so you have to leave it. The thief however will come back later (in the dead of night) break the lock off and have away with your bike. The thief doesn't necessarily have to steal the bike there and then, but he knows if he glues the lock you're not going to be taking it home (at least not likely)

Is this another lock which weighs almost as much as your bike? You spend hundreds to save a few grams on the bike itself and then lug one of these around. Hasn't anyone come up with a lightweight solution?

Yes ... sellotape.

Anyone have a picture of the mounting piece? I put it away somewhere years ago and can't find it. Do you know if these can be ordered separately? Sick of carrying it around in a bag!

speric07

Yes ... sellotape.


Tried that - takes an age to get the glue off afterwards!

BTW. The lock mechanism started seising on mine after a year or so. You have to lube it regularly.
And yes it is heavy and awkward to carry around. Which is why I don't.

Leave it at work/the place you regularly commute, unless you cycle to different places on weekends etc lol

These are sold separately, just Google kryptonite mounting bracket. On my phone now but cheapest I could see was at tredz:
tredz.co.uk/.Kr…wcB
You might not have heard of them buy tredz are reputable in the biking world. Also from Amazon etc if you'd prefer.

Decent lock, should suffice for most users and be a suitable deterrent for most bike thieves. I think the point of the cable is to secure the wheels as well as the frame, which on some bikes will be worth nicking on their own. Evans seem to do it at this price every so often.

This is very true. I have really got into cycling over the last 2 years since quitting smoking and have gained a huge amount of lung capacity back. It's one of the few things I passionately enjoy even though it's exercise. I can honestly say I've lost considerably more weight off of my body than what the lock weighs so I don't mind carrying one if it means piece of mind for leaving my bike somewhere.

The only criticism with this lock is that mine started failing after a while and it was taking a lot of key shaking to get it undone and its worrying not knowing if the lock will completely fail one day with bike attached. Great price though!

Go out doors also have, they should price match and Beat by 10%

How would greasing up the moving parts stop people from superglueing it?

The superglue won't penetrate the grease, so won't get into the pins. Hopefully!

I have read elsewhere that if you want to try to stop scumbags super gluing locks etc, for whatever reason they do it! The only answer is to try to make it hard for them by using Vaseline or some other grease filling lock/keyholes any cavities, moving parts etc and regularly re grease them and be quite liberal with the grease, when I go biking I make sure I have a mall tub of Vaseline and several pairs of disposable gloves plus keep any lock Key's in a plastic bag to reduce getting Vaseline on unwanted things, it's a lot of faffing but I think it's worth it!

Hi Guys, I been using a chained (covered in rubber) Kryptonite few a couple of years now but leave my Bike in a fairly secure location.

This week I joined a gym (have to my surprise actually attended x3 times this week) and the Bike is in a very bike parking rack. I notice everyone else is using a D-Lock along with cable/chain for the wheel.

I'm wondering whether I should upgrade to a D-Lock or whether my existing Kryptonite is enough of a deteerent.

Any thoughts? Cheers

Is that the same as this On-Guard 8005? The differences being this includes a chain and it's a tad cheaper at £23
