091404 take this quiz:

kryptonite bike locks are:

the best on the market

the most secure

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.

Yeah that's some pretty freaky stuff, eliminate a $100 lock with 39 cents. A lot of guys on Fireblades.org are commenting on this same topic as a bunch of them use those locks. I went to my local Cycle Gear and told my friends who work there, and naturally they tried it. We could not get it to open so maybe it's just practice?

I have a whole bunch of cable locks with the barrel keys but I can barley open them with the keys. I wonder if this same method would work on Harleys?

my harley softtail deuce has the same barrel lock. it looks like there is only one type of barrel lock.

imagine all those hot rodders a while back that thought it was so cool to change their car locks to barrel locks to keep them from getting stolen. yikes!!!
