Product Description


Protect your bike from theft wherever you roam with the Kryptonite Evo Mini 7 U-shaped bicycle lock. Equipped with a 4-foot KryptoFlex looped cable in addition to the lock itself, the Evo Mini 7 is an ideal choice for urban environments and college campuses. The lock's strength stems from the 13mm hardened Max-Performance steel shackle, which is designed to resist bolt cutters and leverage attacks. The shackle is 1.5 inches longer than previous incarnations, so you have plenty of room to wrap the cable around your front wheel and lock it securely. Cyclists will also love the innovative EZ-Mount transportation system, which fits on the adjustable spline and allows for multiple offset fitments to better align the lock for transportation.

The Evo Mini 7 boasts a 9 ranking on the Kryptonite 1-12 comparison system, which ranks the varying levels of security within the company's product range. A lock that ranks 1 on the Kryptonite scale might work if you live in the burbs and have a Rottweiler parked next to your bike or motorcycle. A 9, by contrast, isn't the toughest rating on the Kryptonite scale, but it's pretty darned close. Other security-enhancing features include a high-security Bent Foot design, a reinforced cuff over the hardened crossbar and cylinder that protects the disc-style cylinder; and a center keyway that defends against leverage attacks. As a bonus, the lock includes three stainless-steel keys, including one with a high-intensity LED bulb for convenient, easy unlocking in the dark. The lock measures 7 by 3.25 inches.

About Kryptonite
In the early 1970s, Michael Zane was a free-spirited, bearded kid with a VW van and a big idea for a new kind of lock. He traveled thousands of miles showing the unique U-shaped locking device and spreading his passion for bicycle security to bike dealers all around the country and forged lifetime relationships. The company soon expanded its product line to include power sports, hardware, and snow sports security. Through innovative product designs, cutting-edge marketing savvy, legendary customer service, and pure fanaticism for security, Kryptonite grew with a cult-like following. In 2001, the company that was started in a VW van was purchased by industry giant Ingersoll Rand and became a flagship brand in the company's Security Technologies sector. Publications such as Bicycling, Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, US News & World Report, and a host of others continued to tout Kryptonite products as the best on the market.

The company's dedication to its customers is best represented by its actions during the fall of 2004, when it was discovered that the industry-standard tubular cylinder could be compromised, at times, with a household item. Kryptonite flew into action, created a voluntary lock exchange program, and replaced more than 400,000 locks in 21 countries for free. In essence, the company redesigned the equivalent of nine years worth of new products in just 10 short months. Kryptonite is the only company in the world that offered such a comprehensive plan to customers, taking its "legendary customer service" pledge to new heights.

Where I live and commute (Brisbane, AU), most people with bikes pricier than mine (at least in public) use a cheap cable lock around only the frame or wheel (occasionally there'll be one that goes through both wheels and frame). Others might have a big U-lock around just the frame which looks like a combination of inconvenience and lower security. Perhaps also worth keeping in mind is the fact that decent bike racks in good locations are not as common as old dodgy racks so the lock might only be half the game.

I didn't feel like pouring $30 towards a cable lock and locally, $60 can perhaps buy the Series 2 Std with cable; but at the US/AUD exchange rate in March 2011 the price of the Evo Mini-7 + cable hit a sweet spot in value and relative security.

Like what other internet people say, the mounting bracket isn't great but it hasn't been working too badly either (it gets easier to use with a little practise). Because this is a mini 7" U-lock, it *does* fit neatly on the bike which means I don't have to lug it in a backpack (tip: coil and cross the cable inside the U before you lock and mount it for easier transportation as per photo).

As for locking techniques; the clearance between my rear wheel and seat tube (with bottle cage installed) doesn't make the wheel rim + seat tube a possibility - this option is probably only effective with road bikes. I tend to prefer going for the left chain stay + rear wheel (shift to the large chain ring and smaller sprocket first for some more room). Left seat stay + wheel can also work depending on the bike rack. For lower theft areas, I'm also happy to have the U around the seat tube and cable through both wheels - handy for a quick lock up and it'll still be better locked than nearly all bikes around here.

I'm rating this product on 2 aspects. Security=5 stars. I guess until someone breaks it, there's no reason to doubt this thing is secure. The U-Lock size is just barely big enough to lock my rear tire & seat tube to a street parking pole. And I mean BARELY (on my road bike). Don't think about lazily leaning your bike down or locking up a friend's tires or anything like that. And I can't imagine how this would fit over a mountain bike with the bigger tires and frame diameters. So if you have a mountain bike, this is probably not for you. However, the small size ADDS to the security rating since thieves can't fit anything inside the U to try to pry it apart. Like I said before, 5 stars...until someone finds a way to break it.

Now the bad news. The 2nd aspect I'm rating: Bike Mounting Mechanism=1 star. The plastic "easy mount" sucks. I struggled with it for about an hour before giving up. The end of the latch that looks like it should be latched on to the bike frame is in reality WAY TOO STIFF to conveniently push on and tighten down. My advice: if you choose to mount this thing, disassemble the end with the allen screw first. Push on the other end with the teeth, but don't push in too many teeth (they're impossible to pull back out). Just push on 1 at a time and check it on your frame to see how it fits. Once you got a decent fit, then put the mount on the frame and re-assemble the end with the allen screw. Again, don't push in too many teeth until you check the fit on your frame because once you push in a tooth, it's impossible to pull back out. The flimsy "release mechanism" will break before you can release any of the teeth out. Horrible design overall. Very disappointed. I'm committing to carrying my lock in a bag now whenever I need to take it with me.

I ride my bike to class almost every day and after hearing of all the recent bike thefts on my campus I decided it was time to upgrade from my cheapo cable lock to something a little beefier. I received my Mini-7 in the mail last week (fast shipping as always with Amazon) and so far it's been everything I expected it to be. I was a little worried the size might be an issue, having a mountain bike (trek fuel 100, see pic), but so far I haven't had any trouble finding something to lock it to. Definitely glad I went with this instead of the Evo Mini-5, as I feel that would've been too small for my bike. I also couldn't imagine lugging around the much heavier Fahgettaboutit lock (~5 lbs), which was another option I considered. The only complaint I have so far is that it was a PAIN to get the mounting bracket to attach to my frame. Maybe its just my bike, but I have the bracket mounted to the top tube and could barely get it to fit on its largest setting. Make sure you put at least a sliver of the rubber strip that it comes with between the bracket and the frame, otherwise it'll twist pretty easily. Other than that I have no complaints. The keys don't bother me at all, and the bracket seems to work as it should. The included cable also comes in handy for locking the front wheel.

This is one of the best deals on Amazon. You get the industrial standard U-lock and a nice cable to lock up your front or back wheel. The Fuhggetaboutit u-lock (which we also purchased from Amazon) is higher-guage material, but for day-to-day use, I prefer this lock, as it's not nearly as heavy. You can also stuff it into your belt (ala Silverlake hipster) for easy transport. The key works just fine and there's a cover for the keyhole when not in use. All in all, a great product.
