The NYC bike lock

NYC is a tough hard place to live I am told. I have to accept second-hand anecdotes about this, as I live in a softer locale: Texas.

NYC is especially tough for bicycle owners as the bicycle theft rate there is staggering and seemingly little cared about by NYPD.

So, for self-preservation, the NYC bike lock was adapted.

10 pounds of hardened allow steel, with a bulletproof lock to join it.

Preferred method to carry it is around the waist or draped over the shoulder like an ammo belt.

I am glad a kryptonite U-Lock (or 2) is usually enough for Texas!

If only cause they are CHEAPER!

The Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit Chain always costs over $100 and can cost alost $200!  As a friend says.. more than the bike is worth that it is locking!
