Ok for the price. Mildly annoying.
on June 8, 2013
For the price, it is ok. This thing will secure your bike and probably hold up better than something you buy at WalMart against leverage attacks and cutting. It was also just the size I wanted which allows it to go through the frame, wheel and still have room to fit around whatever is available around the city. My Kryptonite Series 2 was just a little too small.
What annoys me is that it is frequently tricky just to get it to lock. The Krypto locked way more easily. This takes some pushing, removing, jiggling of the key, etc. On that note, I really wish they'd just include 2 or 3 high quality keys as opposed to 5 low quality keys. They just feel really cheap and some actually seem to open the lock more quickly and easily than others. I haven't tried the mount, so I can't comment on that.
This lock is fairly cheap, so I guess you get what you pay for. I might just keep it around as a spare and invest in another Kryptonite.
