Perhaps they should market these things regionally:

The Chicago Whatcholookinatpunk

The Boise Pleasedon'tstealmeplease

Hogwash. The BiC trick does work, but you won't bust it with a pipe or 2x4. You do realize that Krypto is exchanging those round key locks for flat key versions right? This is really old news, like 3 years.

99% of the Ulocks (even new ones) are broken with a pipe or lengthof wood, inserted into the U portion, and twisted. Do a tour of Granville Island or the DTES, or the local campuses here and all you will find is twisted broken U locks and wood splinters or 2x4's underneath the bike racks.

I find this thread interesting.
Specially how so many people are so cheap. They would go to a hardware store and buy a cheopo china lock rather that going for the quality.
BTW, most Kryptonite products are made in China too

My NY Noose chain with Evo 4 lock was made in Italy and Taiwan, according to the packaging.

I don't know why more people don't use noose chains, but I think it's because it isn't clear to folks how they are meant to be used.

I got a NY fuggeeedddaattaaabout the stinking Mets lock with the tiny-u that I could stand to get rid of. That is if you're still on the market for one.

It's the 5' chain one, all 3 keys, good condition. Just sayin'

Good for you, your attempted intelligent statement will now be shot down for a 2nd time.

I was referring to the

>>>>>BELL<<<<<

branded U-Locks, which use a round key. However the peg that the key fits over is too big for the Bic pen tric to work. However it's not that sturdy, a crescent wrench blow would probably kill it, and a pipe could pry it open as well.
