The lock worked - April 24, 2010, 03:56 PM

So today was a rare occasion that i had to take the metro. I rode my bike to the Columbia Heights Metro. I locked the bike up outside the CVS bike rack.when I come back i see someone tried to bust the lock from the key hole, but the lock did its job. When i unlocked it the lock busted.

Makes me feel good because that's same type of lock and chain I have.


4 years and DC and no one has bother to even TRY to bust the thing. Krypotnite did a good job designing this one.

My other cable/lock combos - I'd get a saw thru or lock bust attempt every 6 months or so like clockwork.

Good stuff.

Do a search and you can beat that lock with a straw.I have a Krypto combination lock for my bike and did a search on how to beat it right after I bought it.Took me about 30 seconds.

I still use it though.I found a brand new Specialized MTB($700 new) on CL for $100 from an "athletically" challenged woman,so I didn't invest much into the lock.

If it get's stolen....meh

Well you see, Norm, it’s like this…A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

I have wheel locks on both my tires and my seat stem. Then I just use a bulldog mini U lock to lock my frame to the rack. I love that lock because it's compact, do I can tuck in inside the backside of my pants when I ride. Makes transporting a lock around really easy. I haven't had anyone attempt to steal my bike since.

Last week some kid in Adams Morgan was asking us for a 15 MM wrench for "his" bicycle tire. He seemed really shady about it all though. I know what he was up to......

Ok, the lock is actually an Ongaurd, wow that was almost a disaster. According to their site the lock is pick,drill, and pull resistant. Bad thing is they want the reciept. Now I have to rummage thru my files to see if i still have it.
