.. keep a look out for bike / spare parts on eBay / Gumtree etc. Mindless idiots nicking that - goodness knows how they make off with them at that size anyway unless they're ridden away. I chain mine up with a 1.5m chain round both wheels, frame and bike stand when out and about with a big chain from this lot and a closed shackle padlock :
I wouldn't put any faith in that lock.That's a neat solution Dave and looks far handier for times when you're only nipping in & out of places. Popped my security chain and padlock on the scales and they come in at bang on 4kg, about the same as a big rear hub motor. Carrying it about on the MTB rack is a nightmare too - really slows me down and the whole bike did a wheelie when I was pushing it the other day loaded with some other stuff in the drop-down panniers !
Is it considerably lighter ? Would be nice to have an option and at £12 it's somewhat more affordable than the big chain / closed shackle padlock which works out nearly £100 .
A hit of a hysterical reaction. You'll notice in film that every toe-rag took a tool out of his pocket/bag to cut the lock. None of those tools would've defeated that Oxford lock, which is why I recommended it.I wouldn't put any faith in that lock.
Waste of time if these reviews are anything to go by.

Plod just don't take bike theft seriously and are next to useless.
One of the reviews states it was broken with nothing more than a broom handle !!!!.A hit of a hysterical reaction. You'll notice in film that every toe-rag took a tool out of his pocket/bag to cut the lock. None of those tools would've defeated that Oxford lock, which is why I recommended it.
