kryptonite bike locks are:

the best on the market

the most indestructible

open-able in a few seconds with a 10 cent bic pen

and the correct answer is "open-able in a few seconds with a 10 cent bic pen". details of how to open any bike lock using a cylindrical key (including most kryptonite locks) have been blowing up a number of bike websites and discussion boards in the last few days and sure enough, it's easy as pie.

Too late, it's already out, 1/4 million people downloaded the movie already. Next time I won't say anything.

I know...I'll just PM everyone on the site.

Reminds me of all the TV stations in the early 80's showing how to unlock a Toyota Truck with a pencil!

That makes me sick to think a company has made millions and you guys show there security is as good as me leaving a shiny poo on my rear rim.

Gentlemen, I tried the bic pen trick on both of my Kryptonite locks, it didn't work on either one. One is a 5-year old cable lock, the other is a 6-month old EV disk lock. Don't panic, go into the garage and check yours yourself before you throw it away.
