Rated 2 out of 5 by from This item offers no real security. Use of this cable lock lost me my bike. For very short trips into grocery stores and whatnot, this cable lock will offer the appearance of security, and most likely deter the lazier thieves, but for longer times locked up, or if you lock your bike to the same place for multiple hours on a regular basis, such as while you are at work, or if you are in a higher-than-normal bike theft area, do not expect this lock to provide any real security. After the theft of my bike I examined the cable's cross section (the thief evidently uses bolt cutters because the cable was cut in one swift motion and offered no resistance to the cutting tool used) I was shocked, angered and dismayed to discover that the bulk of this lock's "burlyness" is an optical illusion. Viewed from the side, through the plastic coating, the Kevlar-wrapped cable appears to be very stout, but when the cross section is examined... It is quite shockingly and pathetically less than 3/16ths of an inch thick. As a test my friend got his tin snips out and managed to cut through a section of undamaged cable in less than three minutes. We were both quite blown away by this. Add to that the fact that the dark red on black color scheme of the dials is practically impossible to see in the dark, this lock is not worth the money. I suggest a stout U lock, if you're concerned about keeping weight down, or a burly chain and padlock if you're disconcerned with weight. But use this and any other cable-based locking system with extreme caution.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They need Color Blind product testers This is a decent looking, medium security lock. However, I discovered when I got it home that I can't use it. Why don't companies test products on color blind people? There are tons of us. Red letters on a black background renders this thing totally useless to me. I can barely read the numbers in bright sunshine. And not at all in shade or inside. Oh well, thank goodness for REI's return policy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lock Great lock if you're looking for fairly good protection without the weight and bulk of the more hard-core bike locks. I used a much tougher lock when I lived in NYC but this should work fine most other places.
