    Good quality bike chain lock that doesn't weigh a ton!

    Anyone recommend a good one, main thing is I want a light but secure one as carrying around my kryptonite u lock is like having someone sitting in your rucsac!

    I've got one of these, but the key lock type. It wraps around the bar between the seat and the crossbar, neatly.

    Thanks for that don't mean to be rude but doesn't look that secure?

    light = weak
    heavy = strong

    No way round it really, until someone discovers a material with the strength of steel but without the weight

    no the combination one isn't, but the key lock, available instore, is great, and clicks with a resounding and satisfying clunk

    Titanium can't be hardened to anywhere near the same degree as steel can ( unless my memory fails me)

    Not the lightest thing, either, but maybe a reasonable compromise between the weight of your shackle lock, and something lighter.

    To be honest, the kryptonite is the best lock you're going to get anywhere, yes, it's heavy but that's because it's damn good at what it does, can you not find a bracket for it to lug it around on your bike?

    I didn't ask for anything. And the stupid patronising rolling eyes aren't really necessary

    I said "until someone discovers a material with the strength of steel but without the weight" which titanium definately is not

    Edit - nearly forgot :roll::roll::roll::roll:
