    Need a really good padlock

    Not sure if this is the right section but I'm looking for a padlock that isn't easily picked. Seems like every time I see something I think is decent I will search it on YouTube and its being picked in seconds. I bought a good chain but I'm so scared my bike will be gone unless I find a good lock.

    http://www.amazon.com/Master-Lock-17...ref=pd_cp_hi_2 AS long as you understand that someone who wants to steal it bad enough will have a pair of bolt cutters and make short work of it.

    I would suggest asking your question in the COMMUTING subforum.

    I would stay FAR away from conventional padlocks, If you are serious about keeping the bike (I assume you are if you are carrying an 8 to 10 pound high security chain) then mate the chain with a Kryptonite series 4 14mm disc lock. Uses the same type key as their Higher end U-Locks.

    RADIOACTIVE, RETINA RIPPING, DAY-GLO, Chartreuse !!! It's the new black.

    The "Thing" with accidents is that they are so inconveniently unpredictable.

    I ended up grabbing an OnGuard Bulldog Ulock. I heard those are the second best, next to Kryptonite.

    WELCOME TO BIKEFORUMS 10pm !!!

    Thanks for reporting back on what you decided to get.
    Have had 2 bikes stolen myself (knocking on wood) I DO NOT want to repeat the experience, so after very careful consideration and research, decided to use the best u-locks I could afford as the foundation of my bike security strategy.
