Finally, A Perfect Bike Lock!
August 2,2004 By atreyu “atreyu”
After a thief defeated my $45 U-Lock to steal my my $1,500 bike I started researching alternative security measures.
I learned online that U-Locks can be defeated a number of ways… the easiest way is to straddle the “U” part with a small jack, and then bend the shackle until the lock can be compromised.
My research has convinced me that Street Cuff locks are THE best option out there… there’s no place for a thief to even PUT a jack, and no way for him to get any leverage to break it with his weight or with a crowbar, sledgehammer, etc.
Most thieves will have a jack handy for U-Locks and/or a bolt cutter for cables… they’ll give up on these at first glance!
Any experienced thief will move on to something he can steal easily with tools on hand.
I wouldn’t waste your money on the SS version, by the way… not much extra security for a lot more money, and they’re heavier and more likely to scratch your finish.
But having the 9-link version’s extra reach really helps for those times you can’t get your bike *right* against an anchor.
The 9 links also make it very easy to lock a friend or spouse’s bike up at the same time.
