The next generation in standard bicycle security with an optional $1500 USD anti-theft protection offer (note: coverage is not included, customer must register for ATPO) with a security rating of 6 of out 10 and includes a KryptoFlex Looped Cable 4' long for complete protection. Kryptonite U-locks represent extreme security while maintaining a realistic size/weight. U-locks represent the most popular lock for enthusiasts. 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 powersports, hardware and snowsports security.
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.
The Legendary Durability of Kryptonite Locks
A legendary test for Kryptonite's new bicycle locks came in 1972. The Second Avenue Bicycle Shop in New York City locked a three-speed bicycle to a signpost in Greenwich Village under Kryptonite founder Michael Zane's direction. Although all of the removable parts were immediately stripped by thieves, the bicycle itself remained for thirty days and thirty nights. The Kryptonite lock and the bike frame were still in place, even though the lock had been attacked numerous times. Publicity from this event gave Kryptonite the boost it needed, forever changing the face of bicycle security.
Twenty-two years later, Kryptonite returned to the streets of the Big Apple to test its latest innovation - The New York Lock. In April, 1994, the New York Post laid down the ultimate challenge: Could Kryptonite's New York Lock last 48 hours on the toughest streets of New York? Michael Zane and Neil McDaid, Director, Product Development and Design, set out to prove, once again, Kryptonite was up to the test.
In a city where over 100,000 bikes were stolen each year, Kryptonite and the New York Post took a brand new, bright green Univega road bike worth $600 and locked it to a parking meter in the East Village; the "Bermuda Triangle" of New York bicycle thievery. For a full 48 hours, the bike remained locked on the corner of Avenue A and 11th Street.
Subsisting on cold coffee and a strong belief in their product Zane and McDaid watched from around the corner and witnessed as the bike came under every possible means of assault, stumping thieves at every turn. After 48 hours the bike remained intact except for the gear derailer, which had been stripped off. The lock showed definite signs of abuse, but it had not failed. The New York Lock had met the Post's challenge.
Not satisfied with the length of the test, Zane moved the bike to SoHo for another six days and, finally, uptown near the Lincoln Center. Even in these high-theft areas the properly locked bike lasted another three weeks before being pulled off the streets by Zane and McDaid - not a thief. Kryptonite was convinced that this product indeed offered the ultimate security protection.
To compare the New York Lock against other U-locks, the New York Post then ran a battery of street tests using the common bike theft tools: a 4-foot bolt cutter, a crowbar and a hammer. The non-Kryptonite locks cracked in seconds, but all methods failed on the New York Lock, even the monstrous bolt cutter, which ended up useless with large dents in its jaws.

Nice mounting mechanism
Should work in low crime areas
Loses to bolt cutters
My lock was broken and I provided the information to the company (police report, proof of purchase of the bike, etc., It should be noted that if you do not have an original bill of sale on your bike they will not honor this agreement so look elsewhere if you do not have it!). After daily attempts to contact them via email and phone I've come to the conclusion that the company has stonewalled me and refuses to honor their refund agreement.
This lock is easily broken! Do not purchase this company will not honor their promise! Horrible costumer relations and a horrible product.
*UPDATE* - I had posted pictures of how this bike was defeated and the seller somehow deleted or disabled all of the customer pictures.

Another complaint that I have is the bracket that's supposed to hold the lock is really unclear of how to put on. I am good with my hands and fixing things, but after like 20 minutes I just gave up and now use a bungee cord or pannier to carry the U-Lock.
And don't get the insurance on this lock unless your bike is worth like $500 or more--probably not even worth it if it's under $1000. The reason is they make you pay the $20 for 2 yrs insurance, then if you file a claim, they want you to first file a claim w/ your homeowners insurance and they'll pay what's less. My homeowner's insurance has a $500 deductible. So for my $400 bike that got stolen, it's not worth it. Not to mention, they'll then likely raise my homeowner's rates.
Next time I'll go w/ a different brand.
