Are all bike lock cables created equally (Kryptonite, Avenir, Bell, etc)?
I currently use a OnGuard Brute LS U-Lock, but am looking for a supplement cable for the seat and occasionally the front-tire if I'm away from my bike for only a few minutes. Regardless of thickness and length of cable, are all lock cables the same? I know the thickness will provide more protection, and I certainly plan to get the thickest cable I can get (12mm or 15mm), but wanted to know if there's a difference between Kryponite, Avenir, or Bell, since they all sell cables for different prices (even for the same thickness and length - with Bell being the cheapest).
Here's a sample of the Avenir one: http://www.amazon.com/Avenir-Tightro...7001839&sr=8-1
Please let me know if you have any insight on this. Thanks!
