You are joking, right? The "review" you linked to says the author's bike got stolen within a week using the cuff. Quite a "rave" review.

The March "Bicycling" says their staff easily cut this lock.

The photos of the current version of the cuff show a round key lock. When cuff owners requested that Master Lock "recall" the round key version and provide replacements, Master Lock essentially told its owners where to stick the cuffs.

You would buy a lock from these guys?

Buy a lock rated "gold" at at the "Leisure" page. Then add a sturdy cable for the front wheel.

Look for my post "I bought a Master "Force 3" at a LBS here in Columbus, Ohio just days prior to the Bic Blow-up..." about midway down the page. Masterlock "won't be along for the ride" with me.
