Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Lock broke
This lock was working fine for the first three months until the lock got stuck. No amount of oiling seems to loosen it so had to cut my bike free. Wouldn't recommend this, even if it is a cheaper option because you'll just have to buy another one in 3 months.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Not bad, but broke
I leave mine outside in the elements. It rusted up and the barrel got stiff.... still worked but eventually snapped off the key in the lock. Luckily the bike wasn't locked at the time!! hahaha
RIP, time for a new lock, maybe less budget this time :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Ok for low risk use
I have used these for over a year on two bikes. They did their job pretty well protecting my two city bikes (Trek 7200, and a Corratec). But when I tried to use if for a slightly nicer bike (brand new Trek 8000) it lasted 2 days.
The bike was next to my open bedroom window so they must have easily picked the lock since the use of any heavy tool would have waken me up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Very good value
I have been using this for three months, cannot say if it is equal to more expensive items in terms of security but it seems well made and much tougher than any cable/chain that you could buy for this price. Only issue I had was the mounting bracket, cheaply made and poorly designed, it would come apart while riding. To make it work you need to discard the plastic thing that is supposed to go with it and wrap a piece of old tube around the frame instead, and than make sure you can screw the mounting bolts all the way in so that the two halves of the bracket press against each other. As this was easy to do and fixed the problem completely I give this 5 stars all the same.

I used it for a year at a place where 8 bikes were nicked, looks like someone tried to break it open with boltcroppers and my bikes still fine

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Cheap, light
It is a cheap lock, and light. The lock mechanism is simple and it is 12mm thick (the metal part). Good for light use
