For a mere $18.68, I wasn't expecting a lock of such quality. Add a few more $$$ and get free shipping from Amazon.com. This lock actually compares to many higher priced OnGuard & Kryptonite locks. I bought this lock to use for my second (cheaper) bike. Had I known in advance - I may have bought two of them.

With a simple twist on the barrel, there's a cover for the key hole - protecting it from the weather, should a storm come up. The 10mm x 4ft flexible coated steel cable is thick enough so that it would take some serious bolt cutters to get through. There's even a user's guide with various lock strategies. As of this writing (12-09-2010) there's only two left in stock. Get yours now.

The only drawback I can see is there's no guarantee against theft as with some OnGuard & Kryptonite locks. Last thought...I live in what has to be called a high crime area. Leave a bicycle unlocked & walk away - it'll be gone in 30 seconds. Would I use this lock if I didn't trust it?

Edit: I've now added a 3rd bike. And a 3rd Avenir Lock - the Avenir Standard U-Lock

My girlfriend and I just got into riding. We both have standard road bikes, but I am 6'4 and she is 5'6. This lock fits fine on my bike since it has a large frame and does not interfere with my water bottle holder, however, on my g/f's bike, she must make the decision of whether she wants the water bottle holder or the lock. We keep the bikes inside, so like a previous poster said, we can just take the locks when we need them (b/c they are a bit heavy), but that just also implies that they are strong and durable. For $18-$20, you can not beat the price.

Like I said, the lock itself is great, but if you plan on mounting it on your bike and riding around with it all the time, I think it would work better with a larger framed bike that has more space (unless the lock is the only piece you have attached).

I used to like this lock. How could I not at this price and apparent quality. Until yesterday, when I got to my bike and U-lock was bent 180 degrees - someone must have used a crow bar and twisted but ran off without finishing the job. My bike was fixed to the stand at this point but I was able to (a) twist off the top bar without using the key and (b) bend the U-lock apart to with my bare hands. I wonder how the return policy is at Amazon for this junk.

Wanted to save 10 bucks and found this lock in pieces where my bike used to be. You can save money on a lock if you don't mind buying an extra bike. Don't be cheap. Keep your bike.

I was very pleased with my lock and thought I was doing well by going the extra mile and getting the combination u-lock and cable.

Unfortunately I was wrong.

My bike was stolen when the perpetrator cut through the bar of the u-lock with a simple bolt cutter. They cut through with a clean cut in what appears to be the first try. Do not buy this lock if you plan to use it for securing your bike other than while out and about in public. The u-lock appears to be sturdy but its construction makes it easy for thieves to cut it with simple tools in a matter of minutes. Invest in a sturdier lock or move your bike to a more secure location.

This U-lock is a great option for a cheap kids bike lock.

The Lock: The keys are square with patterns cut into the shaft. The slot is in the middle of the front of the retainer, making it easy to access. This lock cannot be opened with a pen shaft, with a knife, or by hitting it kind of hard. It meets all of campus police's requirements at the University of Texas.

The Cable: A bit too short, with great effort I can wrap it through both tires and barely wrap the U-bar. It would be the perfect length for a child's bike.

The Carrier: The piece of plastic that the device is supposed to dock to is too small to wrap around my bike's frame. I forced it until it broke.

Overall, this is an excellent, well thought out product at a fantastic price. Some parts are better sized for a kids bike, but the functional parts work great. I carry it in my backpack.

I bought this based on a review that said that Avenir locks are similar quality to Bulldog locks because they are both manufactured by the same company. Sadly, they were wrong. This lock set was not bad, but I would say it is one or two notches below Bulldog/Kryptonite quality.

After using this lock almost daily for a month, the keys would no longer turn the locking mechanism. The keys and lock did not fit together in a way that allowed the lock to turn, which I suspect is due to the lower quality metal making up the lock & key. The metal felt much more flimsy and malleable on this Avenir lock than on my old Bulldog and Kryptonite locks (which have lasted years).

I should have anticipated this problem when I noticed early on: (1) how the key + lock did not slide together smoothly and (2) the metal on the key scratched up very easily and there was a lot of "give" to the key, when it met resistance with the lock when turning.

Conclusion: Pay a little more and get a Bulldog or Kryptonite lock.

There is no way I would use any other lock riding around Berkeley. My bike frame is a little women's one and the great thing is that a bike technician installed this lock behind my seat so I didn't have to carry it around. It is a bit heavy but that's OK if it prevents my beloved bike from getting stolen.
