Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Too short. :(
Bought this to use with my track bike, if/when I rarely use it outside to commute to work or to go out to town for a pint. I thought this would be easy, since you can lock it around your waist and not scratch the bike. I wear 33"-34" jeans, so I thought 36" chain + lock is a nice and loose fit.
No. Wasn't even close. I'll measure it again, but I have a feeling it's probably ~30".
Anyway, the lock looks a little cheap. What the hell, actually it is cheap! But I think that also means it can be smashed to bits with a hammer in under 4 sec. Also the chain is quite thin.
I was looking for a light "chainbelt", for use when I can mostly see my bike. If you have <30" waist, this could work for you. ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Brilliant, just a bit on the heavy side!
Excellent quality, very secure lock but its a little too heavy. But then again you cant have it both ways! Very good value for money.

My bike was snatched with this lock over the weekend. It was parked in a very public spot on the busiest day of the week, now it's a goner....
Good luck if you buy this one. My advice is go bigger if you plan to leave it out doors over long periods.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Super strong
This lock is super strong and long enough to fit through your frame, wheel and around something as thick as a lamp post. Some people may find it a bit on the heavy side, that doesn't bother me as its definitely not going far once its locked! You may want to consider keeping the lock oiled as it does age with the rain pretty quick, had mine for two years now and although the key still works, it has rusted a fair bit.
Other than that its great value considering its strength and well worth the investment!

Obviously not any of the best out there, but for the price its amazing. Feels very sturdy and unbreakable. Got 2 of these on my hardtail when parking at shops/school/work and i feel its safe. The weight is a minus, but what to expect from a large chain

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I got this lock from chainreaction. It is not the best lock for sure, but nothing beats the price. I use it to lock my hardtail at shops and work. It has a chain that is long enough to go around frame, wheel and a bicycle locking bar. You can wrap it around your handle bar easily when you travel.
