Looking for the security of a U-Lock but the flexibility of a chain? Look no further than the Bordon Granit X-Plus 6500. With an ABUS security rating of 15 out of 15, this lock features temper hardened steel bars encased in an extra soft coating to protect your bike's paint job. The ABUS Link Protection Shield offers high protection from sawing of the links. The lock body, links and supporting elements of the locking system use the same high quality steel you'll find in the bars. The patented X-Plus Key cylinder offers extremely high protection from picking and it can be keyed alike with other ABUS locks featuring the same X-Plus cylinder - very convenient for multi-lock and multi-bike households. Like all locks in the Bordon family, the 6500 is simple to carry. The rattle free lock carrying case attaches easily to the frame via the silicone coated non-slip Velcro straps or screws easily into the bottle-cage mounts.

The thief worked on it for some time. Shifted my bike around quite a bit and chunked off bits of plastic; even bent it a bit. Gave up and stole my saddle-pack and crappy pump instead. I wish I could have caught him in the act, could have made a great Amazon review for a 5 star saline-based membranous cavity cleanser.
Enough about the travesty.
This lock is the easiest way to secure the heck out of your wheels in Cities that love to be crafty with their bike racks. U-Locks can be difficult to use around abstract objects, and this folding lock is a perfect workaround. I was skeptical at first, so I spent an unhealthy amount of time looking up reviews and stress tests. The only tool that disabled this device was a disc grinder.
The locking mechanism wasn't tampered with yet, but it looks more hardened than most others. The main key has a blue LED which is very useful. It takes a little bit of practice to get used to how to position the entire chain as you wrap it back into itself, as it isn't as fluid as a chain. It is the perfect length to get around most standard bike racks with little room to wiggle.
This lock comes with a hard plastic case that is strapped using Velcro. The straps are extra long and can be cut and fused to size. It is a very fine fit, which my bent links have issues getting back into though.
TL/DR: It does it's job very well. It is the best thing you can do for a good bike in a city made up of crazy racks.
I don't leave my bike locked overnight on the street, that's tempting fate too much for my taste. If you're going to lock a bike up overnight regularly in a high theft area like NYC and Brooklyn, then go with the Kryptonite New York Standard Bicycle U-Lock with Transit FlexFrame Bracket (4-Inch x 8-Inch). And don't lock up a nice bike overnight. My other suggestion for making this lock even easier to use, is secure your front and rear wheels with Pit Lock axle locks. Then you don't have to worry about trying to get this lock to fit around a pole and the front wheel.
It's also very easy to use -- much simpler than some reviewers have said. I lock up my bike through my rear wheel, through my frame and onto a bike stand/rack/street post. There's always plenty of room and length on the lock to secure my bike up this way. I also have gravity lock skewers on my wheels, to prevent those from being stolen.
My peace of mind is well worth the price of this Abus Bordo GRANIT X Plus 6500 lock. Haven't had a problem locking up my ride in NYC (knock on wood). I haven't locked up my bike overnight with it though -- nor would I.

I wish it was a bit longer so it would secure both wheels and the frame
I will have to buy a second lock
