Off to the Midlands Game Fair next weekend and will be going by bike to avoid the unbelievable traffic jams. I reckon I should be getting a new lock as the cheap D lock I have is years old. I need some suggestions please. Don't want to spend a fortune and I must be able to carry it in a pannier/on top of rack. I would never leave my Ti alone but my spare bike was expensive BITD and holds many memories for me, (some of them good!) so it deserves protection.
Cheers in advance.

you need to have a look at their "sold Secure rating" or something like that, it'll be either gold/silver/bronze and that reflect how long they withstand attack - it's an insurance industry rated thing and valid for motorcycle chains too

Abus and Kryponite both produce good D-locks or chains, but what ever you do DO NOT buy a d-lock with a circular key thing (you want a normal long slot key) as these can be opened with a bic biro (I kid you not!) there are some videos on the web and kryptonite had to change their design

personally I use Abus Granit d-lock, it's about £60 -which is a lot less than the emotional & financial value of the bike to me
