When I needed a lock that was secure and sturdy to lock my bike up when I am at work, I shopped around and found this to be one of the best value on the market. It was priced at just under £15, came in a variety of different colours and came straight from Amazon very swiftly (next day in fact). Despite a few negative comments on Amazon, overall so far, three months in to me using this lock, I have had no problems and found it both very secure and a highly visible deterrent to those thinking of nicking my bike! At least, it hasn't been stolen dso far and we have had one otr two bikes go missng in the last few months due to the fact that access to where we park our bikes is readibly accessible through some nearby deserted wasteground!
Anyway, I digress. One of the main criticisms of this lock is that it is weighty. That is slightly true but I don't think personaly it is THAT heavy. Someone else on Amazon also states that this lock was easily broken and their bike lost to thieves. Well, I'm sorry but almost any lock can be broken into if a thief is determined enough and there will never be a lock that is 100% secure!
In my opinion, the fact that this is a combination lock works in my favour in that it is one less key to lug around and, to my untrained eye, this looks like to me a very strong lock. True you can buy better but these are more expensive and, in this day and age, most people are on tighter budgets!
I would not hesitate to recommend this and think if you are looking for a good quality lock for your bike at an affordable price, you can do no wrong with this!
I haven't got an expensive bike but I do like to ride it into town sometimes and don't want to lose it or have it stolen, so I bought this Masterlock Integrated Combi Chain Bike Lock so that I could chain my bike to the stand in the high town when I go there on my bike. This way I can secure my bike to the stands provided and go about my businesss shopping without worrying about having to walk home.
I bought this combination lock bike chain as I have a habit of losing keys and remembering a number to open the lock for me is the easiest option than carrying keys around which I might lose. You can just put this around the stand and around the frame of your bike as it is long enough to fit securely and then spin the dial with the numbers on and there you go a safe and secure lock until your ready to come back to it and line the combination of the numbers up to get the lock to open. It's easy to use.
This chain cost me £13.99 which is quite a good baragin for a bike lock in my opinion and I bought it online from www.chainreactioncycles.com and was lucky enough to get it free postage as most other sites charge for postage, so it is good to browse around and find the best deal. I'm happy with the deal I got and the choice of colour i got too.
I got my bike chain within seven days of ordering and it is a nice blue one, you can get the bike chain lock in green, red , yellow and also in black so there is a little choice to go with the colour you like or the one that matches your bikes colour.
The chain is 90cm long and will fit around the bike stand and the bike to attach it nice and secure so that no one can ride off with your bike. It is a chunky chain and is 8 mm in diameter and is covered with a thick nylon in the colour you chose.
It looks very sturdy and it is sturdy but not too heavy when you are carrying it around in your back pack when cycling along.
You can reset the combination to a number you remember so that you don't forget the combination and the nylon around the chain has the name of the make written on it.
It is a four numbered combitnation and the dial is quite tight to spin round to get the combination to open it.
I like this chain and so far it has been seculey fitted onto the bike stand and around my bike when in town and it has kept my bike safe and sound from being stolen.
I'd be happy to recommend this combination lock bike chain to you if your looking for a good secure chain that is easy to use and lasts.
