Need a really good padlock
Not sure if this is the right section but I'm looking for a padlock that isn't easily picked. Seems like every time I see something I think is decent I will search it on YouTube and its being picked in seconds. I bought a good chain but I'm so scared my bike will be gone unless I find a good lock.

Its the right section if the lock is electronic, otherwise you are Lost.

I would suggest asking your question in the COMMUTING subforum.

I would stay FAR away from conventional padlocks, If you are serious about keeping the bike (I assume you are if you are carrying an 8 to 10 pound high security chain) then mate the chain with a Kryptonite series 4 14mm disc lock. Uses the same type key as their Higher end U-Locks.

I ended up grabbing an OnGuard Bulldog Ulock. I heard those are the second best, next to Kryptonite.

Thanks for reporting back on what you decided to get.
Have had 2 bikes stolen myself (knocking on wood) I DO NOT want to repeat the experience, so after very careful consideration and research, decided to use the best u-locks I could afford as the foundation of my bike security strategy.
