Understanding Ebike Lock Types and Kryptonite Security Ratings Video

Good video; thanks for the link.  The Lockpicking Lawyer YT site ( ) is also pretty interesting - he gets through anything, including Kryptonite and ABUS, pretty quickly.  Fortunately, most criminals aren't as skilled as he is.

I've read a number of comments on forums about how Kryptonite weasels out of almost every single one of their "bike replacement guarantee" claims.  Ended up going with an ABUS Granit U-lock and finally figured out how to efficiently mount it to the outside of the basket on the back of my Mini StepThru, along with an ABUS cable.  I live in a peaceful rural area, so don't have to use either one (I turn off the battery and set the alarm if she'll be out of my line of sight for any length of time) but wanted them available if I ever need to lock up the front wheel, in a big city, to a tree, in a sketchy area etc.

Shucks Ma'am, I'm no "Hero Member", I just like to wear this cape.


I went with the Abus City Chain 1010. Seems like a decent lock. Security Level 12. I still find it hard to walk away from my Rover even though it's locked. I try not being to long.
