Yesterday I rode in temperature in mid teens (15~18F) for about half hour, then when I parked the bike outside and was going to uncoil the Kryptonite cable from my seatpost, I found the cable super stiff and almost fixed in that tightly coiled shape. I managed to take it off, and then looped it through the front wheel, it remained tightly coiled, so I had a hard time to get it reach my chain lock to secure the front wheel. Of course under the plastic cover it's metal cable inside, but I still wonder if it'd be easier to break the lock in such cold condition?

I've had two cable locks in recent years. One would flex pretty well in cold weather. The one I have now stiffens right up. I don't remember the brand of the flexy one. Has anyone found a brand/type that keeps on flexing, even during an old-school winter like we're having now?
