Re: Krytonite/U-Llock easy picking, now do you feel safe? (tuanmynsr)

Wow. That was some scary stuff.

I was a bicycle industry guy for a bunch of years and got to see a few creative ways that people break into U-type locks. There was the Volvo jack break. The U-lock companies beefed up the shackles and then started using freon and hammers. The pen thing is really spooky because its so simple and easily concealed (unlike a Volvo jack, hammer & freon etc.).

I have 2 Kryptonite u-locks that I refuse to use now. I'll be emailing them.

Geee. Glad they're posting that video all over the world. Guys at work are waving their Bic Stic pens at me and smilling.

I'd get nervous if the guys at work started waving their bic stics at me and smiling.

FWIW, I just received my raplacment lock so they even thought they are behind schedule they are honoring their replacment lock program.

So what does non-barrel type replacement mean? Do the replacements look anything like the originals? I'm using one that I can't get a bic pen in, in conjunction with a Barbed Wire set. I'd be pissed if they replace it with a lock I can't use the way I need it to work.

Re: (stk0308)

My buddy and I both got our replacement Disc Locks for use on the front rotor. Same size and shape as the old model, except we both received an orange and black one. Good match for the flying pumpkin CBR600 of a few years back
. The new key is a flat rectangle, 28mm long, 6mm wide and 2mm thick with very unusually cut teeth. Seems to work just fine.
