Save your self the trouble and don't bother with the bracket. I thought I'd give it a try and after only a few hours use it came loose and my lock started swinging about... the lock is also really noisy when even riding over the tiniest bumps! I ended up taking off the metal bit on the lock that slotted into the stupid bracket (just need to loosen a little allen bolt thing and it slides right off) and now it lives in my backpack. The lock its self is great. If the key doesn't want to turn (happens sometimes) don't force it. Just make sure the keys in properly ^^
This is a great lock. Had mine for a couple of years now. Brought off Amazon. Agree with other post, its quite heavy though so i leave mine at work in our bike racks. Definitely recommend them.
Youtube 'kryptonite bic pen' may well answer your question.
Cool I was actually looking into chainrings/sets/crank sets yesterday for my Roam (XR3) which I bought from a deal off here a while ago. Being a novice in the matter of bikes I was having trouble finding what I needed - but this looks like the one and they also do the 36t on sale. So thanks!
48 teeth! make sure you can fit this amount as most are upto 42.

Kryptonite New York Long Shackle bike U-Lock Was £99.99 Now £42.99 Free Delivery @ fatbirds£42.99
Lowest price ever. Normal price £60-70. Even cheaper than the Short Shackle version that normally costs around £45-55.
The price has gone up - why hasn't this been expired?
funnily enough, it's the glut of £500-£1000 commuter bikes that are targeted the most. I think the Specialized Allez is the most targeted bike due to it's popularity. It's easier to get rid of them. Something ridiculous like 25% of all thefts reported are an allez. Good lock this, use it as your primary and get a smaller D for the front wheel to frame.
With some bikes about costing more than a second hand hatchback I'd say bicycles are targeted more so than cars today.
You don't like in Cambridge then? Bikes are stolen all the bloody time!
I imagine more are stolen now than in the 80's

Crumbs. My Long Shackle version turned up today. Solid as a rock (if rocks were made out of steel) but it's going to be far too heavy for everyday use. I think I might have to send it back - which will probably cost me more than the lock itself!
Back in stock, but £46 now.
Confront the bike crooks with animated gifs from the Internet circa 1998? Cunning!
I'm genuinely a little confused as to who you'd have to contact if you did end up having your lock sabotaged. Seems a little odd to get defensive over this legitimate concern.

These did sell out but have since restocked. Ceased the opportunity and have ordered one :)
I am currently working in Holland and have been for the last couple of years, so far 2 of my bikes have been stolen with one being stolen jsut last week. I had a solid padlock and chain on mine but the problem here is the bike thieves don't use bolt cutters they use battery powered angle grinders no lock stands a chance!
You can't open this lock with a bic pen, that problem affected locks with tubular keys and not just kryptonite either.
Check out YouTube on how to use a Bic pen to open the lock :-(
