    The Bike Club™

    Has the The Bike Club™ be unlocked with a bic pin yet? I have tried by havn't yet, but I still don't know if it's safe.

    Thanks,

    I have never heard of it, but a google search turned up this: http://www.securityworld.com/recreation/bikeclub.html

    Is that it? It seems like it might be suitable for relatively safe environments. The $200 guarantee isn't exactly inspiring.
    Bring the pain.

    saw the bikeclub for the first time a couple of days ago. Very heavy. I'd stay with a company who's focus is bikes. The bikeclub looks and feels like it was engineered by someone who's never biked before. also i didn't see any attachment mechanism to store the lock on your frame.

    If it uses a tubular key system, consider it unsafe. Kryptonite didn't make the lock cores, they bought them from another company which basically is one of a very few number that manufacture that type of core, and in all likelihood the tubular cores from all the manufacturers are "defective."

    Those would be The Bike Club™ Block and The Bike Club™ Caddy

    Not a big fan of u locks, don't think I would like this one. However it is no heavier than any other good quality lock out there.
