I have been doing some research as I moved and want to keep my motorcycle secured I did not want to spend a fortune on an almax chain, after few hours I came to a conclusion that this chain plus oxford brute force anchor will be a good solution (around £15 for the anchor)
According to the internet these were over £100 few years back, pretty heavy and solid set for under £60
Just make sure the chain is not too long, and you keep it off the ground if possible

My Yamaha was stolen when using this chain. Also Oxford battery charger broke after several months (replaced by ctek which is much better quality). All nasty and cheap chinese quality products from this brand. Never again any Oxford product for me.
It's only 13m and Oxford chains don't have a good reputation.
I'd only use 13mm if it's a safe area and it was only being parked for an hour or so.

Really for anything overnight or remotely questionable you need 16mm, ideally 19mm from the likes of Pragmasis or Almax which are repeatedly rated the highest due to the hardening process.

Nice price. Remember, if you have one of those noisy 50cc scooters that you just have to overrev to enhance your ego and reach pedestrian walking speeds on the road and through parks, use this lock and throw away the key
Ooh. This is tempting for my cargo bike. But then I've already got a nice lock for it. Hmm.
Using anything less than an Almax (or equivalent) for securing to a ground anchor is a mistake in my opinion. For the small cost saving you are leaving yourself open to the risk that your chain will be cut with bolt croppers.

Really poor quality chain

Chinesium I call it. The world is full of it. In more ways than one. Cheap for a reason.... its garbage.
After having 2 bikes stolen, got me a 19mm chain. I still have the bike these days
Bennett’s have done a highly detailed rating of chains/locks
bennetts.co.uk/bik…ity
They reckon a heavy duty quality chain substantially reduces the risk (only 1 out of 1000 bikes stolen use a good quality chain)
To make things clear every bike can be stolen, if they want to they will no mater what you use, 7 out of 10 bikes are not locked with anything, it is just to make your bike look more secure and make them go away, in my world this look solid enough combined with a wall anchor and not much space in my garage it will do the job for me, if you park overnight in a big risk area you might get something better, they come with freeze sprays and portable angle grinders you can cut anything with that.
Amazes how people spend £1000s on a bike to then look for bargain products to secure it with.
Buy a pragmasis chain. Expensive but worth it. British company too. As good as an almax.
This chain can be cropped with manual croppers within seconds. Better than nothing though.

I bought an Oxford monster and another Oxford one whose name I can't remember back in 2000 and 2001 and still using them now. Fantastic quality. Maybe they moved to China afterwards hence now made of compressed kitkat foil. Ground anchor make sure u buy one with oil and rollers inside and no ground bolts but long glued threads instead. Naked chains and padlocks always susceptible to liquid nitrogen. Nylon ropes will seize bolt croppers and if they run through your bike and into an empty dog kennel it would take a brave thief to call fidos bluff

Are you sure it's not this one? bennetts.co.uk/bik…iew

Has a much better rating and in the top 10 above pragmasis which is really surprising. Not sure if it's newer?

After more research it seems they're both hardcore XL but one is the older version and one is newer that is gold secure and it has a 16mm shackle as opposed to 11mm.

Both have different product codes.
