I almost broke my toes on several occasion, when it wiggled itself out of my grasp through its sheer weight and hit the floor. My carbon fiber bike is about the same weight as my friend's steel bike with this monster, and I always fear that it will rip through the bottom of my backpack.
That being said, it probably intimidates any bike thief before they even attempt to break it. I lived in Oakland beside a public high school (go figure what all these little buggers do in their free time. Stealing bikes, that is). At the bike storage area of my building bikes get stolen left and right, but my sweet little ride remained untouched in the eye of the storm, as though it was protected by a spell.
Perfect if you want maximum security, not so if your back is not strong enough to carry it.
When the zombie apocalypse comes (and it will), this will be my weapon of choice. I envision myself, biking from town to town, looking for human survivors and wielding this to decapitate the undead as I speed by.
Or, maybe on the way home one night, I come across a couple of street urchins brandishing a blade. I stop, swing my leg off my bike with a cowboy swagger, confidently dangle this tank of a chain and do my best Steven Seagal impersonation by swiftly and gracefully dispatching justice without all the face bloat and over-gelled ponytail-ness of the aging star.
Is this good for locking up a bike? Absolutely. It's not undefeatable. Any thief with an angle grinder and spare time will beat it. The goal is to make it as hard and intimidating as possible. This is intimidating. This is hard. The reports on youtube and other sites show this as taking as much as two and a half minutes to saw through with a grinder. Yep. Even the best ULocks don't last long-- maybe a minute, minute thirty. By comparison, this thing, while heavy and cumbersome, will hold up pretty well, even against the BEST thief tools.
Your bike is always there for the taking by a thief who's well equipped. Just make it harder to get yours than the next guy's. I know, that sounds terrible, but it's reality. Your only other option is a GPS tool. However, some of them are too noticeable and savvy thieves will just destroy them. Waste of money.Read more ›
While I was unlocking my bike a guy came up and tried to mug me at night at 8 PM. This guy came up to me with a knife and said give me your stuff. Before I turned I said " Oh yeah?", I then proceeded to grab the chain and lock and started swinging violently and said " What now mother f****r!", the mugger got scared , dropped his knife and ran away.
Cons: Bulky , Heavy (15.5 pounds)
The first time I took it out, slung over my shoulder like one of those huge automatic weapons slung by our favorite action movie stars, I inflicted $26,000.00 in damages to the bicycle rack I locked my bike to. When the police showed up to investigate the massive damages to the otherwise innocent rack, I merely swung the chain over my head and they made me their leader out of fear, and awe. And they were right.
Two days later, I came out of a coffee shop to a disturbing scene: A craven thief had seen my bad-ass bike and tried to break this behemoth in order to steal it: he simply exploded. Needless to say, I had to find a hose to clean the 150-plus pounds of meat and guts and hair from my bike and the surrounding landscape. I was late to band practice and am considering legal action against the Kryptonite Corp for damages due to being summarily fired as the hamonica player for my (former) band.
I am currently in talks with local organized crime figures as they want to rent or lease the chain from me on occasion to sink stool-pigeons, uncooperative football teams, and other undesirables in the river.
Even when I leave it at home, I am no longer allowed to fly on domestic airlines as they feel the mere ownership of this unstoppable theft-ender makes me too dangerous for their formidable insurance policies to bear.
And it's worth all this. This is the toughest, most evil bike lock ever conceived by mankind.Read more ›

The chain is heavy, sturdy and noisy, worth the price, but the lock broke after ONLY ONE MONTH of use!
I never dropped it and nobody tried to force it. Read more

This lock is a beast for my Urb-e electric scooter. Its heavy ass hell but looking at all the videos out there it will take them five minutes to cut thru these chains.Published 19 days ago by dksf415
