    Kryptonite Transit Flexframe U Bracket

    Sorry to say a very poor product. The flexible frame mount is not rigid enough so after 1-month of use allowed the bracket to flex on the frame tube and the Kryptonite lock to fall out of the mount - 3 times in 2-days now.

    An upgrade over the old one

    I bought this to replace an older bracket that had stopped working because a tiny spring had rusted to dust over 5 years of service. This new bracket has done away with the spring so should not suffer the same fate. Installation is really easy though I don't like the bit of strap that's left sticking out. I know the instructions say to cut it short and re-seal the end but I might want to move the bracket to a different part of the bike or a different bike all together so I have taped the loose end to the bike for now. This new bracket also has a different way of attaching the lock and provides 2 mounting adaptors, one is too small (12mm) for my shackle and the other is too big (16mm) so I have shimmed the shackle so the large adaptor fits. Once in place the bracket holds the lock very snug, I have no concerns about the lock moving or becoming un-attached while cycling. If it lasts as long as the last bracket then I consider it to be a bargain.

    Flimsy and poorly designed

    Dear Kryptonite, please look at how Abus design their lock holders and re-design yours. You cannot make a holder out of a flimsy cloth material and a single tiny grub screw. U locks a very heavy and need a substantial holder.

    Sticky bracket

    I agree with the other reviewers comments. Additionally, the first time I used the bracket, I hadn't engaged the lock property and as I was cycling, the lock fell out and hit out the road. I was quite upset I’d scuffed my new lock. After that I struggled to easily remove the lock once it was properly engaged until I put some grease on the bracket.

    Quick fix

    Expensive, but sturdily built. You have to cut away some of the rubber coating on the shackle, but a wrap around of masking tape gave a neat line to cut to. Very easy to mount on bike, but had to tighten the nut an extra half turn with the allen key to stop the wobbles. Once done works well.

    Bike Locks Guide

    What type of bike lock do I need?

    Cable Lock | Use in low crime areas

    These are the lightest bike locks. They’re very flexible and easy to carry in your pocket or on your frame. Great as a visual deterrent or secondary lock to fix quick release components to your frame.

    Combination Lock | Use in low crime areas

    These are cable locks with a 3 or 4-digit combination rather than a key lock. They are great if you don't want to worry about forgetting keys.

    Chain Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas

    Chain locks are versatile. Thick chain links are great against bolt cutters. You can secure your bike to a range of bulky and unusual objects.

    D-Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas

    D-locks are strong and often made from hardened steel. You get 360-degree protection for your frame. Locking mechanisms can resist picking and drilling while the D shaping makes leverage style attacks difficult.

    Ground anchor | Use in high crime areas

    Ground anchors are immovable platforms you fix to your garage floor or wall. When used with a strong chain lock you can fix your frame to the anchor. These offer the best protection for home storage.

    How heavy is a bike lock?

    In general, the stronger a bike lock, the heavier it will be.

    Cable / Combo locks

    These range from around 400g up to 1.25kg depending on the thickness and material used in the twisted cable. These are the lightest bike locks for easy transport.

    Chain locks

    Chain locks range from around 1kg up to 7kg for the thickest and toughest chain locks. Choose a mid-range weight if you're commuting daily to blend strength and weight.

    D Locks

    D-locks tend to be 1kg up to 2.5kgs and are more compact for daily use than a chunky chain lock.

    What is Sold Secure?

    A great way to determine the quality of a bike lock is to see if it is Sold Secure Rated. This is a third party, independent rating system.

    An approved lock is graded as Gold, Silver or Bronze. The rating is chosen by how long it takes to break the lock and the tools needed to break it.

    If you're planning on insuring your bike, many insurers will state you need a Sold Secure rated lock to make a successful claim.

    Typically a bronze rating covers a bike up to the value of £500, silver up to £1,000 and gold for any bike worth over £1,000.

    These values vary between insurance providers so check the terms and conditions of your provider.
