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
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).
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.
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.
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.
