I bought Betty Foy to replace my stolen Jamis Commuter (well, and I decided that I needed a huge upgrade) and now I have to make sure this puppy never gets stolen. I need a serious lock.
I have a Kryptonite u-lock for Smurfette, which is what Greg uses for his Jamis. I definitely want something more secure for Betty Foy, though.
I have the Abus Granit Citychain (5.25 lbs) for my Oma. Super secure, but I want a lighter and easier to carry lock for Betty Foy.
I read an article in Momentum magazine the other day about a new Abus folding lock that looks genius. Much lighter and I could throw it in my bag or coat pocket easily. I’m a bit concerned that it’s so new, but Abus tests these products extensively during development.
This is the beefiest folding lock – Abus Bordo Granit X-Plus. Just over 3.5 pounds.
The Abus Bordo 6100 is a more affordable and lighter option (2.2 lbs), but the security number of “8″ versus the Granit’s “15″ does not sound so hot.
Has anyone tried this new Abus folding lock? Any lock raves?
