this was great! thank you
Where did you get your saddle bag that attaches to the bottom of the top frame? Thanks! 🙂
not angle grinder anymore. check out cordless rebar cutters. nearly silent, no sparks. cut through almost any ULock in under 15 seconds.
Have same lock. One tip is to lock only your rear tire, the part between frame members, to post – no need to lock both frame and tire, as you can’t steal the bike even if you take the tire partially off.
I had the same lock, and yes, a 24 inch bolt cutter would cut it’s 13mm shackle. I had to cut mine because the lock jammed. The locksmith wanted $90 to come out and remove, and the lock cost me about $54…. so I went to my local Harbor Freight and both their 24 inch bolt cutter for $18 and it did the trick. I was actually surprised at the easy that it cut with the bolt cutter. I learned that the 14mm shackled U Locks will stand up to the 24 inch cutters, but can be cut with the 42 inch cutters. So now I got a U Lock with an 16 inch shackle as my main lock.
A 13mm U Lock like this is fine for most things… a ride to your local park and your bike is lock in an open area.. or when riding and you want a to run into your coffee shop and your bike is still within views, etc. If out and about and when have to go into a store of something, I’ll use two U Locks plus a 7 foot cable that goes through my front wheel, saddle and rear rack. I have my main U Lock on the frame and rear wheel and a second U Lock that I have on the frame. Best wishes and thanks…
It is indeed a good lock thanks dor the review. Bought it and also have done a video on my channel. Cheers.
Do not recommend this lock, the key jams and you always need the key to close/open it, most locks close keyless, it rattles on the holder too, regret this choice a lot, have another one for half the money and it is much better
Thanks, gonna buy it!
Great video! I was considering this as a second lock.
