    Nifty little lock

    Just what I was looking for�a reasonably compact and lightweight lock that fits in a jersey pocket and provides decent security when I have to leave my bike momentarily, e.g., while popping into a store or coffeehouse for a minute or two. Seems sturdy and durable, and the combination is easy to set.

    Quality lock for short stops

    I bought this for coffee shop stops on group rides. It is a lock that would take a pro to quickly defeat. It is perfect for my uses. It can be carried in a Jersey pocket. You can set the code easily. The directions are user friendly.

    The best lock for quick trips.

    We purchased this lock for our trip along the Southern Tier of the US. We're riding a tandem with a Yakima Big Tow Trailer that few would want to take due to the weight alone, but this lock really helps us sleep at night and make quick trips into grocery stores. Though it might not keep a professional thief with motivation from steeling our unattended bike, it would make things more difficult and time consuming. Therefore we thought it was perfect for our needs.

    It rolls up tight and fits in our seat bag. It's unconventional, so most thieves with a metal cutting device would think twice. It's simple to use even without a bike rack or post. We simply run it through the rear wheel and the down tube thereby making anyone have to hand carry our tandem bike. I do suggest the longer (30") lock though to enable locking to posts, bike racks.

    30� is too short

    Love the product. A friend of mine got the 60�. I didn�t realize(even though I should have) that 30� won�t do it. 30� won�t capture both wheels with the frame and something to lock the bike to, let alone lock 2 bikes together. Unfortunately BTD does not carry the 60�, so I got to go elsewhere.

    Lightweight for traveling, sturdy and easy to store

    This lock is small,light and works great for a coffee stop on a 50 mile ride.

    I did not want a big heavy lock clanging around on my horizontal bar.

    I am a road biker and ride about 400 miles a month.

    Peace of mind for quick stops and times when you just need an

    I bought this so I could make pit stops on solo rides less worrisome - it is light enough and small enough to throw in my handlebar or saddlebag without being a noticeable load. (I suppose I could stuff it in a jersey pocket as well). This is definitely an "honesty" lock - just enough to keep someone form walking away with what would otherwise be an unsecured bike. There is no way I would use this as a primary lock in a high theft area.

    Pros: small size, light weight, coated band protects the frame

    Cons: the band can be grabby sliding in and out of the lock mechanism, there is no spacer between the tumblers which can lead to you turning two of them at the same time.

    Overall, I would recommend this for someone looking for a lock to use for quick stops or in very low risk areas.

    Best thing: it's small!

    It's not strong, and I would not trust it in any high risk area. But it's fairly easy to deploy and it will probably prevent casual theft of an unattended bike. There are times that's all I need. In the past I hauled around a full-sized cable or chain lock, but those were overkill when I parked for 10 min to pick up a prescription or drop into the hardware store. This lock is so compact I can carry it everywhere and have it when I need it. I think the trick is to be aware of risk areas wherever you leave your bike, and make sure you have security that's adequate situation.

    Easy to carry and use!

    I used this lock as a thief deterrent. Not for very long periods of time. I do get paranoid about leaving my bikes for too long. I recently used it on a bikepacking trip. The small version is great for a single bike, but hard to get around some thicker light poles and road signs at times. My brother has the longer version and that seems more recommended if you want to go through both wheels and the frame, or lock multiple bikes up to something. I like how it's a little bit more space friendly than a U-lock. and given that I don't leave my bikes out too long anyway, this lock is perfect for my needs

    Perfect

    This is peace of mind when the bike is parked outside the convenience store. The lock is small and light enough to shove in my jersey pocket or strap to the saddle bag (I did see the other day that they offer a mounting kit for it). I haven't tried to cut into it, but I've watched the videos online. Impressive.

    Compact and but not easy to use

    The small Ottolock fits neatly in a jersey pocket, is lightweight, and offers decent security for short stops. However, the flat cable doesn't twist and isn't very long so I sometimes have trouble looping it around railings or bike racks. The combination seemed hard to set (yes, I followed the directions step-by-step), and the small combination rollers are difficult to align even though my fingers aren't that big.

    Good lock fits in jersey back pocket easy and isnt that heavy. I carry it with me just in case I have to run a store or house for a few minutes, which isnt that much. I guess it gives me some peace of mind.

    Easy light security device

    I was tired of carrying my heavier U-lock for brew rides so got this as a lightweight thief deterrent device to avoid those ratty opportunist. Obviously not meant for overnight street lockups but the lightness for a quick pint or two is enough reassurance for that short time period.

    Perfect for stopping for lunch, or coffee, or beer. I also use it to lock my bike to the car rack. It's only good for short stops, but the majority of the time it's what I need in a lock.

    Great Lock

    I first got the short lock. Does not provide enough length to go around a bike part an a city light pole or tree. It will lock a tire in a rack or just a tire. So I ordered the middle length. I don't have a problem have two to choose from. The best thing about this lock is how light weight it is. A jersey pocket or even a cargo short pocket. Never know it's there. I have the big heavy duties when needed, but this is now my go to lock.

    I like the size and the look of it. What I dislike is It does look to a stranger that it would be easy to cut , which it really isnt and if they attempt to do so it will really mess it up.

    Solo rider

    I usually ride alone so I bought this to secure my bike for quick stops. The 18 inch lock is way too short to secure my bike to just about everything. It does work when you can find something though. Kind of pricey for a lock that may not work.

    BEST LOCK EVER!

    Is it too much to say that a lock changed your life? Well, I think the Ottolock Cinch changed my cycling life. 80% of the time I'm out, I take only this lock and feel confident that my bike is safe while I'm away. When I'm in a risky part of town, I use Ottolock and a U-lock (and sometimes a chain). If you doubt the strength of this lock, check out this video from OUTSIDE MAGAZINE httpswww.youtube.comwatch?vGiVGho83Rf8 Pretty impressive, right? Bottom line BUY THIS LOCK NOW. It's so great!
