You know it's been this price for ages and yet you don't know the postage cost. You're never going to buy it anyway.

Great price, cheers op

Customer pictures of these compromised on Amazon.

Thanks OP

Free on orders over £20, otherwise £2.99 - so worth buying something little if you need it.

I bought it 3m ago form Rutland for £16.25.. I bought somat else so no I don't know the postage price.. I just know it's not free for an item under £20 or £30 or whatever it is


Decent enough lock.. Bikes not been stolen yet.. Weighs a ton. It will seriously add about 20% to the weight of the bike if fastened on

Living in London, I have seen 3-4 of those Kryptonite flex cables cut up on the floor, so I don't think it is the most effective deterrent. Can't comment on the sturdiness of the D-lock itself.

The best deterrent is two D locks. One through front whee,l frame and post and the second through back wheel,frame and post. If you're only getting one use the D lock through back wheel, frame and post and use the wire to connect to the front wheel. But the wire is easily cut

Is this a silver rating? (bikes up to £1500). Pretty sure the gold rating I got from Decathlon was about £20 or £30 - can't remember. I kinda only buy gold rating locks now even though none of my bikes are over £1k so silver would do for insurance but y'know. Still hot.

Good price, I'd still go for a kryptonite GOLD standard one though,

I've had one of these for about 3 months - it's a good solid D-lock, not too heavy considering you'd want something solid to stop the opportunist thieving scum from stealing your bike but you certainly need more than one D-Lock if you really value your wheels.
The flex cable is nothing more than a deterrent imo so look at getting a Gold standard lock to go with this and for the love of toffee make sure you know how to lock your bike properly. Lots of guides on the web for this.

Good price too - heat added!

That was on old models with a cylindrical key, the new models are not susceptible to this. They even offered a replacement program for anyone with an old style lock.

Anything other than gold and they'll be through it in about 5 seconds.

Lots of vids on youtube of people busting through £100 locks in sub 15 seconds.

As a result I bought a crappy bike for pootling around London - cost £40 from a charity. I use a cheapo Abus lock - hasn't been stolen yet (about 18 months) because nobody would want it.

That's for the old gen lock - get rid if you still have one of those!

Bought, got some wet lube too (no smut please boys and girls) for £3.99 as winters acoming so could take advantage of free delivery. Cheers OP!

It's always around £20 on Amazon. Perhaps useful for those with Prime.

Came here for green minerals, was disappointed,

This is the old bent foot design Kryptonite Lock that thieves will break if used on its own without any other form of lock..
Sold secure silver so not for high risk locations..I would pay the extra and go Gold sold secure with the Kryptonite series 4 a far better design and far stronger too!

As well as quidco, and free delivery over £20, use code RIDE5 for £5 off £45 order (I got winter lights as well as the lock!)

Thanks OP.

That vulnerability is long gone with any lock you will buy new. They use different lock barrels. That said, this lock is very easy to break, and there are pictures showing this has been done. I'd go for something more secure if your bike might be atractive to thieves. This lock is just a minor inconvenience to someone who knows what they're doing.

I bought a £10 bike with a £40 lock whilst waiting for insurance to replace previous stolen bike and chavs still tried to steal it!

How do you know it was chavs? It might have been city bankers engaging in irony.

Got one of these for free the other week from our local transport PTE Merseytravel. They were giving them away to anyone who filled out their Travelwise questionaire and whose nearest train station didn't have the new style fob key operated bike cages. I don't have a bike myself so gave it to my son. As stated above it weighs a bleeding ton!

Price match this with Evans and they will deliver it to store for 17.78. You save on postage. I did the same and got the lock delivered yesterday.

Looks exactly like one Asda sell for £12, though the ASDA one does not have a frame mount or a sold secure rating. I bought the ASDA one to leave on the bike rack at work as work is reasonably secure anyway.

A lock is simply a deterrent so doesn't really matter what you buy. A pro thief will get through any lock in a few secs, just as they break into and steal cars which are obviously much harder... I agree these D locks are harder to break than cables so are a better deterrent than most, but like above post you might as well just get one from ASDA for a lot less.

Yes 6 bikes stolen now just old ones

I agree, I had a bike locked up in a communal shed that had card access for only residents, and it still got stolen despite having this. Looks like someone needed pocket money for beer ...
