Kryptonite New York Noose With Evolution Disc Lock
Peace Of Mind
I love how solid both the chain and lock are. I know that professional thieves who make their living stealing bikes won't necessarily be deterred, but I'm not worried about being a target for those guys: this set up lets me feel that my bike is secure when at home in the drive.
I appreciate the options the chain allows: standard or "noosed" through the ring on one end of the chain.

Heavy chain and lock, Works great.
Bought this because I was moving to an apartment complex and wanted to make sure my bike stays mine and not stolen.
Works well, really heavy duty chain that should stop all but the most serious of thieves. Just looking at the chain probably deters some thieves from even considering stealing it.
Chained my bike to my car frame using the noose side because I didn't want anyone to be able to just lift my bike and put it into their truck.
Glad I went with the 4.25' because it give you a lot me chain to work with.

This is a serious chain.
When you look at getting a security chain you need to find its weakest link (get it?). In most cases the lock is the weak link. I can't exactly say that here. This lock is the bees knees and would deter most would-be theives. It wouldn't prevent someone with enough time and large enough tools but nothing get really prevent a theft if that (insert expletive) is determined enough.

Beef city. Fast shipping. Good times. Heavy but that's the point.

Keepin' it safe and secure.
A month after buying this lock, someone tried to steal my bike. I had the lock clasped around one of the spokes on my mags. Rather than cut the lock or chain, they decided to try and cut through the wheel instead.
Fortunately, someone caught them in the act, and, after sourcing a fresh mag, my bike is safe, but it's got to say something about Kryptonite's reputation; a thief would rather ruin the bike they are trying to steal than cut through it.
The shackles on this particular lock tend to get junked up, so make sure you lube it up fairly regularly. The noose style chain gives you options for locking your property up.
If I could go back and change one thing, I would have gotten the longer chain. 2.5ft is just not long enough for most situations.

Keeping what's mine!
If anybody gets thru this lock and chain without attracting a lot of attention my hat is off to them. Kryptonite is at the top of the food chain when it comes to locks and chains. I carry just the lock for quick protection and the chain when I feel like I might need more. Having the noose on the end is like having two chains in one, a great idea!

So far so good...still have the bike and I am the only one riding it...so the lock has worked up until now.
