I have a NYFU. It's a great secondary lock, but completely impractical unless you are only riding a really short distance, like less than 2 miles.

It weighs in at 4.5lbs. Which is more than everything else that I carry on my daily commute combined. I mostly use a heavy duty cable lock and have had a couple of thieves try their luck, but get nowhere close to cutting through even the double braided outer layer.

There is no practical way to carry a lock that heavy, Kryponite doesn't even make a bracket for it, because they couldn't find a sturdy enough design to support the weight.

My next lock will be none of those in the article, Abus would be my choice at this point. If I did have to chose one of those, it would most likely be the New York Chain. At least that has more transportation options.
