  • Hi don't want to hijack the thread but which is stronger/better a mini evo or a abus steel o flex 1000 cable?

    I ask because I was in london this weekend and saw how many bikes are locked up with the abus and thought the mini would be a more (cheaper) secure choice??

    my gf who now lives and rides in london uses a mini evo for back wheel (sheldon style) and a krytoflex cable and pitlocks for front wheel. is this enough? im thinking of getting her a new york mini or another evo mini. has anyone had a biked nicked with an evo mini?


  • I hardly see the Master Lock Street Cuff mentioned.

    Is this model or the more heavy duty version any good?

    no good, i got fat wrists

  • I'll stand by the Onguard Mini Bulldog.
    It's just a a centimeter longer than the krypto evo mini but is double locking, only costs £25 and is basically rocking.
    I've got a krypto evo mini and one of those.

    obviously an angle grinder will churn through it speedily but, it's inexpensive and good quality.

  • abus granite plus seem to perform equally good if not better than kryptonite

  • Just a quick nod to a good source for kryptonite locks (cheapest for both when I bought mine):

  • go for it, my girlfriend just brought one yesterday, told her it's the best lock to get.

  • Abus Granit-X plus D-lock through frame and back wheel and cable lock upfront is the way to go if you ask me. I couldn't find anything on google about breaking one of them...

    The good Kryptonites are probably just as good too.

    I wouldn't use a cable lock as my main lock, I don't think any cable lock would stand up to a pair of bolt-cutters for long.

    Nothing with a barrel lock, nothing with a combination lock, and don't leave any room in your d-lock for a car-jack or whatever. Probably the best you can do really.

  • that is my locking rig..

    the abus granit x plus is well respected, but weighs literally a ton.
    i dont mind so much since the extra weight keep me fitter, but it might put a lot of others off.

    is that in reference to the evo mini or the NY mini u lock?

    is my gf's current security setup skating on thin ice or is it enough? if i had to get another u lock i'd prefer another evo mini to be honest. i havent heard of anyone having the mini evo broken into. seems a legit option.
