Request for photos of your ABUS lock mounted to your frame.

The model of your Abus lock would also be appreciated. Which Abus lock do you recommend? Thank you.

I have the granit x plus 54 300mm and a facilo 32 300m
edit: when get new bike either ill keep them like that or ill possibly put both on the seat post or both on the frame. and what are you looking to spend? you can get good kryptonite, abus, onguard, and umm i cant remember the other brand i was looking into for like 30-65. that fahgettaboutit is 64 with shipping on amazon and the new york is nice too. Went with the 54 because i think its stronger than the fah. well that and the size but i was thinking of using 2 fahs possibly. 1 securing front and rear wheel to the frame and then the frame to something secure. but i decided i didnt want to be always removing and putting back on my wheels. then thought use the fah to secure rear to frame and the abus front to frame and around something secure but considering the angle and space id have means have to lock it to something pretty thin. might be able to find the kryptonites cheaper on pricepoint/ebay/craigslist. if decide go the abus route amazon has pretty much the best prices for them. oddly ebay was 10-20 bucks more and i did find a place about 10-20 cheaper but it was from the uk and didnt include any import taxes/duties. and i couldnt find the amount nor could they tell me but the bit i could find sounded like 5-10% which makes it more expensive.

ps: CHOKING HAZARD -- This toy is a marble. Not for children under 3 yrs. on the blackburn u lock...
edit: if going the kryptonite route i suggest buying masterlock mounts or some other bracket. read alot of bad things about it. and try to not get the abus ush bracket. you basically have to unlock it pull out the shackle then pull out the lock. it looks like it would just slide in and out but he 2 parts fit flush and the screws are supposed to go in it. you could probably make it so it could if you did some cutting though. and sorry for the long post

Thanks pg 13. So far I'm considering the 54 and the 51, but I'm not in a high risk area, so perhaps these are overkill? I like the looks of the Eazy KF bracket on the seat tube.
