Moments of Regret: A U-Lock Around Your Neck

Moments of Regret: A U-Lock Around Your Neck

You use a U-lock to secure your bike because most things can’t cut through it: Bolt cutters, hacksaws, most portable



You use a U-lock to secure your bike because most things can’t cut through it: Bolt cutters, hacksaws, most portable tools. So when you put it around your neck, lock it, and the key breaks off in the lock, well, it’s pretty much FML.

    I’ve been looking for a good lock to keep my bike secure in my garage and if a U-Lock can keep a hipster locked up then its definetly back in the running.

    Power tools might not work well but a U-Lock has no chance against a car jack. one of those honda ones that will fit in between the bars and bend it out of the locking holes and will pop right out. I only use the really small U-Lock because you cant get a set of jacks in there. Thanks for the cool page.
