Protect your treasured ride from thieves with the most used courier lock in London: ABUS' Granit Steel-O-Flex 1000. It features a huge, 25mm-thick hardened steel shell that surrounds an inner steel cable for impressive security, while the ABUS Plus disc lock cylinder resists drilling and tampering. And, this burly lock is encased in a soft sheath to protect your frame's finish.
I got this lock at a different store, right from when I first picked it up, I knew that this was a beast of a lock.
I have the 100 centimeter length lock. I can get it around a lightpost and my top tube barely, I use a 15mm-thick 72-inch-long cable to loop through this lock to reach my front and back wheels.
I can't see someone breaking this lock or even attempting to bother with it, when you look at it; you would probably think, why bother? It has an intimidation factor to it, when you first see it.
If someone is going to steal a bike, it will be one with allot easier lock to tamper with than this one.
On another forum I read over 60 reviews in which nearly 99% of people would recommend this lock to friends.
Sometimes the key is a little tricky to get the lock un locked or re locked. What I do is take the key out completely and put it back in and it seems to reset the tumblers inside the lock itself.
The lock is a little on the stiff side, but what do you expect with the 25mm steel cable surrounded by a hardened steel sheath?
I've never seen a lock like this ever, you can tell by the weight of this thing that it is solid, I think it weighs about 10 pounds that's how solid it is.
Maybe a pain to transport because of the weight, but its better than coming out and seeing that your bike is gone.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
