I attend the university of portsmouth and didn't know that. With the number of people i know who have had their bike stolen here Im guessing its not particularly effective...

What about a portable grinder show one cutting through this?
Seroster (5 years ago)
@GETTHEDEUCE True, but when the owner begins asking where his bike is people will remember the guy with the angle grinder, it is VERY noticeable =P
GETTHEDEUCE (5 years ago)
People wont get involved watching someone using a grinder on a lock
Seroster (5 years ago)
Yep, without problem. But an angle grinder is noisy.

Nice to know Abus locks aren't made in China! I was expecting to see Chinamen manufacturing these locks as I clicked on this video.

Cool but a little to much like a commercial.
pete smyth (6 years ago)
did you miss the vice test?..13 tons of pressure to cut through.

you have about 0.1 to 0.5 seconds to get your steel from the oven into the oil (or water) if you want to harden it correctly seemed longer then that to me.... but anyway No locks are decent/though enough ,although there are some pretty good materials available to start off with ,but they're not as easy to manufacture the locks with so they're less likely to be used and if they would be used the lock would be verry expensive yet this doesn't mean expensive locks are well made

Feel free to name them. I mean I would like to know in case in some time there would be a lock made of these metals then I would know of it strength and would probably buy it. I would love to buy it to be exact...

That was Kryptonite, not Abus, and Kryptonite issued a massive recall/exchange program to address the problem.

i wanna say that there is some metals that are not breakable, they exist and they are extremely hard to cut , but if company starts using it the lock will be very expensive .

but...this kind of key isnt very secure. just watch corresponding videos - its easily opened with a pen-like device

@jorgefc So then we need super-hardened bicycle tubes. Might be a tad heavy, though...
PyroDesu (8 years ago)
or use a plasma cutter.

@asseeninYOURDREAMS No safe will ever be "unbreakable" unless there is no way to actually open it you know. Hence there will always be a way to steal.
Gordon Freeman (8 years ago)
you can still steal it...
