Old road bike that looks cheap but has dura ace brakes.
The correct method for using the Evo Mini is to put it around your rear wheel, just behind the seat tube. NEVER put a u-lock around any part of the frame, as dumb crooks will use the bike as a lever to break the lock, but damage the frame while doing so.
A Evo-Mini will be a snug fit around the typical rear wheel of a MTB and a thinner than average locking post. You need a cable lock, or longer u-lock to secure the front wheel to the frame.
The Evo Mini is a coffee shop lock...when the bike will not be out of your sight or your reach for more than four or five minutes. And, even at a coffee shop, it is more suitable for a $200 bike than for a $800 bike.
