ONGUARD Mastiff 8019 Bike Chain Lock & Shackle U-Lock (Sold Secure Gold)
About this deal
But my main point stands: if a 10 mm chain is only getting a Bronze rating, there’s something wrong with it. No surprises so far. We know a big chain like this is going to be heavy, but fairlystraightforward to use. Andwe’d also expect itto also provide a pretty high level of protection. Unfortunately it doesn’t. The 8020 weighs 6.28 lb (2.85 kg). That’s the equivalent of 7.5 cans of coke. So while it’s perfectly possible to carry this chain around every day, it is very heavy. And you’re really going to notice that weight whether you sling it over your shoulders or wrap it round your frame! Is the OnGuard 8020 Mastiff easy to use?
So get the shortest length that you need to secure your bike. You can use a length of rope to work that out if necessary.
The Superbright version also has the added benefit of keeping you visible at night, so is a great option for commuters.
Secondly, because you can wrap them around your seat post or top bar, they can be easier to transport. Firstly, because they're relatively long and flexible, you can secure your bike to a wider range of objects.But I don’t want to pay this much money and carry this much weight around, in return for psychological protection alone!

If you only use it to secure your frame (tightly wrapped around your top tube), you can keep the chain shorter (and lighter). And even more significantly: it will be further from the ground so it will be much harder for a thief to crop it.
