Rated 4 out of 5 by HeatherDR Lock
This lock is just what I needed. Gould have been 2 inches longer and perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bikinggramma1 Just doesn't work
I purchased this lock for my new bike. Love the bike but have had to stop using the lock. The mounting allows the unused lock to flop back and forth as you ride. I have problems opening the lock it seems to stick on the first number. I have gotten the lock stuck both when trying to put it on the bike and taking it off. I will be returning the lock next time we go to Freeport.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dmsPhD Mixed feelings
I'm sure this lock is very effective, but i found it to be stiff, and it took some muscle to use it. It's also quite heavy, adding weight to my bike. And the one I received was defective, BUT Kryptonite is amazing, and they're going to mail me a new one without my having to return the one that doesn't work! They only needed a picture and description of the problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by matta Did not work
Couldn't make it lock. It wouldn't take the new combination. Hurt my fingers trying to set up combination. I returned it brand new.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LLBeanBetsy It's a little stiff
I like having the combination lock as part of the cable (I've been dealing with a separate lock for years). The length is good, but the cable has been tightly coiled for so long, it is very hard to straighten it to lock up my bike, both for snaking the cable and connecting the lock. I assume over time it will loosen up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Smta Nice lock, difficult to install
The only reason I gave this 4 instead of 5 stars is because the instructions are horrible and it was difficult to install, and probably impossible to remove. The tiny print instructions are useless as are the pictures, and none of the parts on the clamp have a name. I finally figured out how to tighten the first part before installing the clamp, but that is non-reversible and it was too tight to put the rubber piece between the clamp and the bike, so I had to use the fine tuning screw to tighten it securely without the rubber underneath. I hope it doesn't damage the paint on my bike.
Now that I've got it installed I love it. The lock is easy to reset with a new combination and it's good quality. It is pretty heavy though, but that should make it harder to steal.
The lock fits into a slot on the clamp and clicks, holding it securely until you use the quick release. This allowed me to mount the clamp on the top bar and slide the lock in vertically without it falling out. The quick release seems strong, but if it breaks I'll have to find some way to cut the clamp off and return the lock. I don't anticipate it breaking though.
Overall I'm very happy with it. It seems like it will hold up well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DCrider Will not deter a committed thief
I loved how easy this lock is to use for almost 5 years around DC. Yesterday it was cut while I was in the library for 10 - 15 minutes. Might deter a casual opportunist, but not someone with wirecutters.
