I ran across this news article on this lock (or lack thereof). Even though I don't own this lock, I thought I would warn those who do have it. Be sure to check out the video, which is very funny until you realize that your $5,000 bike can be stolen in a matter of seconds with a Bic pen ;(

Yeah, well, I reccomend not leaving your $5000 bike unattended anywhere (except perhaps your home...) , locked or not...

No lock is secure. If a thieve wants your bike; he gets it. Sorry! In my book, locking is only usefull to delay the theft of your bike by as much as it takes you to get to the front of the terrace, from where you are drinking a beer.
