Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit Chain Disc Lock
I purchased the 5' lock...so far, I still possess my bike. At just over 15 pounds, it's basically like a boat anchor.
Can someone cut through it? Sure, a very determined SOB. Bottom line, it's heavy, solid and really one heck of a deterrent.

Heavy Duty Security
I recently moved into an apartment complex and I needed something to secure my bike when I'm away and using my car. This is definitely going to make anyone think twice about trying to steal my bike. After reading other reviews I now know that it would've been nice if the chain was longer than 5' but other than that there are no complaints.
I also have a disc lock for my bike, better safe than sorry.

Could be longer
If you are looking for some peace of mind this chain will add a layer of protection that will help. I say a layer because each security measure you add helps to keep your bike where you left it. However, even at its longest lenght the chain is still short depending on what you plan to lock your bike down to. I have noticed some other people around town just attach the chain to a wheel and nothing else. Probably not the best idea as most thieves are looking for parts and not just to joy ride on your bike. You have a better chance of detering both joy riders and those looking to lift your bike into a van by finding something good to achor the chain down to if you are not going to purchase the anchor. Outside of the lenght issue the chain is very strong and will make your bike a harder target ESPECIALLY if used correctly.

Feel a lot more safe
Ever since i got this chain for my motorcycle, i can have peace in mind about leaving my bike behind because this is a big chain and it seems that anyone trying to steal my bike would have to use a blowtorch to break this. Great product overall!

Provides ease of mind.
Very heavy duty. I am not worried about anyone cutting through this chain! Glad that I purchased this chain.
The only con I have is that I wish it was a bit longer. I can make it work at 5', but an extra foot would make things a bit easier.

Great item, heavy duty.
Although a bit shorter than I thought, it is a great item and looks super heavy duty. I am able to lock my jacket, helmet, and back tire to the frame with ease.

Great for theft protection
This chain is everything it says it is. Extremely heavy duty and high quality. The lock is the same and easy to operate. I don't think you could cut through this in any reasonable amount of time without a blowtorch.
The only downside is that it is huge and heavy. This is what you want in a security chain but is can be a bit of a hassle to get it through the swing arm and wheel. Still better than getting your bike stolen though.
I had a bike stolen this year, now I don't worry about it.

This is one serious chain...
Got the 5' chain to loop through my tire in the garage. It's definitely heavy, so don't expect to take this anywhere with you. It's also not really long enough to loop through many parts of the bike.
The plus of having a chain is you can wrap it around a pole or to an anchor in the ground if you have that option. It's also quite daunting, which is half the point - keeping thieves away to begin with.
My only question after-the-fact is would a big U-lock have been as effective.
