    Those barrell locks are USUALLY hard to pick, you need a special lockpick to get them open. Looks like Kryptonite dosen't use quality locks though. :)

    Fuck man, that is wack, that is the exact same bike lock I have, and I paid like 70 bucks for the thing. I am going to try this out, and see if this is really true.


    Update: Fuck this really is true, I just tried it out, and it is legit. I just forwarded this movie file to Krytonite.

    It took me about 15 mins to crack the lock the first time, and about a minute, and now I can do it in just under a minute everytime. I am pissed off.

    Now, for those barrels, do you have to normally turn the key, or does it just kind of snap on. Because my krypto lock doesn't just snap closed like that one did. you actually have to turn the key to open it, then make sure it is open to put the lock back on, then turn the key to lock it again. I'll have to try it. Knowing me I won't get it. You better hope you have someone like me trying to steal your bike. :)

    You have to push and turn. Damn. I've got 4 Kryptonite locks- never had a problem with them or a stolen bike from using one. I guess I'll have to try this out and see if it works.

    Shit man the theives had first dibs on them, as that is the lock I use to lock my bikes up at night. I lock them up to the sweage pipe in the garage. Now however I bought a fucking heavy duty chain at a local construction supply store. I also bought a nylon chain cover so that I do not scratch the bikes either. Plus then I bought a solid key open "extra" heavy duty master lock. All of these things were way over priced, and hopfully will keep everything locked down.

    Okay, I tried it and it wouldn't work. The bid pen was too small of a diameter to fit in the hole. Is there something I was doing wrong? I knew I was too stupid to be a thief.
