The Fahgettaboudit lock is too new to appear in any published lock tests that I've seen, but I'm betting it will finish at the top of the list when it is tested. The New York u-lock is "gold" rated, and does exceptionally well in tests that use the methods that crooks out on the street actually use, but the Fahgettaboudit has a even thicker shackle, and less room to insert effective breaking or leverage tools. Tests are likely to show it is the strongest lock readily available in the USA.

I have used a similar sized lock with mountain bikes, and the lock should fit around the rear wheel with typical tires. But, with a mountain bike tire, you will be limited to locking to smaller poles, as the tires fills most of the available space.
