    Hay Guys, n00b here, bike lock problem, lol

    So I have this diamondback from 4 years ago. and I have a chain lock around it and I forgot the combo.

    could i ride it down to the fire dept and would they have something to clip it off? like bolt cutters or something.

    Get a hacksaw.

    If you take it anywhere, be sure to bring proof of ownership.

    engrave the combo on your arm, just like the scopefield thing on prison break

    +1 just get a hacksaw, and make sure your next lock is one that comes with several keys, give one to your parents, put one on your regular keychain, hide one in your bedroom, and one in your car if you have one etc.., my wife got a key lock that came with 5 keys.

    I hear it doesn't take long to cycle through the combo's and find the right one, if you want to keep the chain...
    ...and don't forget to stretch!

    You could always just shoot it with a 12mag slug. Those will remove most any lock. Hmmmm, might blow your bike apart too...probably not a good idea second thought
