Peace of mind
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought this lock for when we need to leave our mtn bikes on the car for extended periods of time. My bike rack has a cable lock built in but there are situations where I don't feel like that is a secure enough option. This lock is super burly and heavy duty. There's no way somebody is cutting through it without a grinder. It's just long enough to fit around two frames and the rack. I also like that it has the nylon sleeve so it doesn't scratch the bikes.

- I've used it several times
I use this lock to secure my bike to my bike rack when I stop in for post ride beers or errands prior to my ride. I feel confident knowing someone is going to need to use a grinder in public to steal my bike so I can enjoy my beverages without having to worry. It is super heavy, certainly not something you would want to carry on a ride, and ranks 8 of 10 on Kryptonite's security scale. Kryptonite will also give you free keys for life which is a nice bonus considering it comes with 3 keys and one has an integrated light. I only gave this 3 stars for a number of reasons. 1) It's not long enough to go through the frame, both wheels, and to the base of my rack so I only run it through both triangles and the rear wheel and my rack. Another 6 to 8 inches in length would have done the trick. If you were chaining to a pole or something on the side walk, it would likely work great. 2) This qualifies for $3000 reimbursement from Kryptonite's Anti Theft Protection policy which is free for one year but requires you to purchase a 5 year plan at $24.99 which stings a little when you've already dropped over a Benjamin for the lock.
