Alicia, Great photos, Whose kids? fill me in. j
No chain, no gain. These locks look sturdy, but that's just skin-deep; often the 'armor' is nothing but thin-walled steel pipes and it's easy to bend such a lock and cut the steel cable inside.I use Axa Defender O-lock with chain, and it never failed me. Very practical and IMHO safe... at least no one will ride off a few seconds after they see my bike, even with bolt-cutters.
