HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT

out of stock everywhere local to me... great deal if you can find one!

Nearest one 135 miles away in Ryhl

Just checked and nearest from Leeds is Ryhl too!

Damn. Was in rhyl yesterday!

Kryptonite New York Lock LS/MC Long Shackle is the best lock.

Got this the other week from Amazon, the cheapest around at the time - and I had vouchers. This deal is fantastic but good luck finding one...

The lock itself is great! Very pleased with the purchase.

Heat OP!

Would have worked out more expensive, as you need at least two bike locks in Rhyl.

Really good stuff and price! hot!

thx

Great lock. Using it now, bike still hasnt gotten stolen, so thats a plus. Big enough to go around bike lots + rear wheel + frame.

good deal if you can find one nearby

Nearest stores for Collection
Rhyl
186.66 miles

Good value lock here. But the Kryptonite range is a bit overrated imho. Seen videos of their top of the range chains being bolt cropped with ease. My aunt had a bike stolen with a New York faggedabout lock attached to a ground anchor. Bike, and lock, were gone by the morning from outside their house. Pragmasis make unbolt-croppable chains (Google for videos), for roughly the same price as the Kryptonite New York chains. Abus do a good range of solid locks. Would prefer them over Kryptonite, if only because they don't use marketing BS terms like "Kryptonium". Onguard do some very cheap Gold Sold Secure rated d-locks, such as the Brute range, eg LK8001 (£20~).

Still say this is hot for the price, for a medium risk/value lock, but once you get £20+ then there's a lot more stiff competition.

Though the flex cables from Kryptonite are good, as they use the inter weaving steel braiding, so when you cut down on it it tightens up and becomes harder.

Wouldn't recommend this lock for everyday use. After 6 months the key mechanism will fail. For casual use though it seems like a good deal.

Great lock have been using it for 18 months daily and no issues and still have my bike :-) heat added.

Nearest store Rhyll for me too, 175 miles. And "Sorry there is no stock of this item in any other stores". But a bargain for someone....

really really recommend. had one of these for 5/6 years now. Never had any issues with it apart from my sister bending one of the keys when i let her borrow it (so maybe be careful but I've never damaged the other key and i've probably used it over 2000 times.

the wheel cable is great for that extra piece of mind if you have expensive rims

So are you folks genuinely worried that Superman might nick your bike?

I'm after some locks for securing bikes to thule roof bars.

Any recommendations please?

nearest to me is rhyl also...from newcastle haha

famous last words

be gone by tonight

Yep, Rhyl is the only one showing in the country (and probably isn't there if you try!).

Why are these things have to be so damn heavy? People spend thousands losing a few grams off the bike then lug one of these around! there has to be a better solution, surely.

I just paid 20 quid for this last month

I got one that I leave at work's bike shelter, do never need to lug it between routes, always locked at end point.

Carry a small little wire lock for stopping opportunist when I stop for no more than a couple of mins at the corner shop or cafe with direct eyesight to the bike.

No locks needed at home as parked and stored in locked garage.

Only time I ever carry my lock with me is a cross country rides, but then an additional 2 kg to my 15kg bag isn't going to make that big a difference.

Is this the same as the one you mention?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Magnum-ONGUARD-Bicycle-Security-LK8001/dp/B00AWAJYF0

I can't see it mentioned anywhere that it's gold rated.

So even Superman couldn't nick my bike? HEAT!

Yeah, you would think it would be something important to put on the product description.
But if you search the Sold Secure website, you can find it and its rating.
Sold Secure

For anyone that's interested, you can get it for £17.98 at Tredz, free delivery and 10% off using RIDE15:

For most kryptonite locks you can also order 2 free spare keys using the number on your existing key. I did it recently and they don't even charge postage! The form to request new keys under their 'keysafe' program is here: kryptonite.zendesk.com/ano…new

Came up that Cambridge had some. Miles away from me

Of course there's a lighter alternative to steel - called titanium...
Shame the lock would be more nickable than your bike

Has Halfords stopped this? as the cheapest i can get is £26.99, on their web page. Link gives an error. Help please!
