realy i need help
Acetylene cutting torch? Pneumatic bolt cutters? Shaped charge? Bolt cutters with long handles and alot of muscle behind them? Maybe there's a bike thief out there who could share some "insider tips". (After all, they manage without gigantic tools...)
If it's a Kryptonite, you can always try a Bic -- http://www.engadget.com/entry/8154041173872584/

(S)he sent me an unsolicited PM stating that it's a combolock. If there are n digits, there are 10^n possible solutions. Probably 4 digits? 10,000 possible solutions. Get crackin'!
If you just want it off, get a dremel tool with a carbide disc. It will take a while, but that lock will come off eventually.
Whenever you use a lock, you are just buying time.
If there is a S/N stamped on the lock, the manufacturer could either give you the combo or make a new lock.

Who's lock is it? Why can't you open it. Did you try the Bic thing?
Sounds to me like someone wants to know how to rip off a bike
That's what I was wondering. If it's his bike and his lock, why can't he get it off? Confusing.

:roflmao: brilliant - a little excessive, but brilliant.
on a serious note - i have a kryptonite combo lock. They're pretty easy to crack the lock on, so if you'll just take a picture of you and the bike, with some proof that the bike is yours, I'll let you in on the secret. :rolleyes:
don't use that damned infernal aolese!!! god dammit! are you trolling or something?

I'm thinking the same thing. perhaps a "bot"... I'm not sure why I, specifically, would have gotten an unsolicited PM...

lock cutters or dynamite

jeeze....combo locks are so easy to deal with that this isn't even worth answering...
......for pete's sake I was cracking my grandfather's master combo padlock to take swipes from his whiskey stash when I was 10....
....get workin on it young lady! the padlock I played with was far harder than that one!
