    Strengths:    Very convenient - stores in handlebars; lightweight (140g); smooth cable avoids entanglement

    Weaknesses:    Lock housing is probably not as strong as the cable

    Bottom Line:   
    Excellent product, suitable for straight or drop handlebars. Does not rattle when stowed. Presumably not the most secure, but very handy. With drop bars, can get a bit hard to insert after exposure to the weather, but I've found that polishing it with car wax every couple of years overcomes this. Pity it's not more widely available. Not to be confused with another lock (Knog Whiplock) recently released.

    Strengths:    Stores in handlebar - coolness factor

    Weaknesses:    A bit short - you've got to be right up on a sign or hooked into a bike rack - wouldn't work around trees or anything larger than about 10" in diameter

    Bottom Line:   
    Really cool for downtown and around. If it was longer it would be 5Flamin' CHilis - but then it might be hard to cram down the handlebars. he.
