"I bought this to secure my new hybrid bicycle when I cycle into the city centre. I left my bike chained to railings on one of the busiest corners of Cambridge city centre on a Saturday afternoon for 2 hours and came back to find the bike had been stolen. The lock was on the ground, the wire of the lock had been cut through. It looks like a simple pair of wire cutters is all it took! There is very little metal inside the plastic coating. I only used my bike about 4 times but have learned a lesson - get the strongest lock you can and not weak one like this!"
