Have you had a bike stolen in the last two years while using a high end lock which was compromised? What lock was it, and do you know if the lock was Art Foundation Four Star or Sold Secure Gold rated?
If your bicycle was stolen and you were using such a lock please provide details of the theft, such as what the bike was locked to and how you think the lock was defeated (bolt cutters, angle grinder, etc).
The purpose of this poll is to settle claims made by the makers of ***** chains that ART Foundation and Sold Secure locks are being defeated in the real world with regularity by bicycle thieves. I think that claim is rubbish, and this poll sets out to prove it.
Here is the thread that started the debate. http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=314001
