    Comments about Kryptonite Evolution-STD U-Lock:

    Heavier than series 2, by weight and sturdiness. If you're out and about take it along. I carry it my rear trunk or a pack. It works easier for me than my series 2.

    good, working U-lock for the city

      Comments about Kryptonite Evolution-STD U-Lock:

      The U part of the lock is long enough to include bike frame, rear wheel, and immovable bike rack (or whatever). Lock seems to be good quality and locks securely for transport with minimum rattle. Frame mount works good for me, under top tube --I don't agree at all with those who are criticizing on that score.

      Bottom line: One lock by itself is not enough, but this is a good basic lock that is heavy duty but not too heavy to prohibit carrying. Good for commuters or others who need to lock a bike on the street (in combo with other locks).

      PS: mine was 'frozen' out of the box. Sprayed with anti-lock product, jiggled, and lock 'unfroze' next day. Make sure key fully inserted.

      Comments about Kryptonite Evolution-STD U-Lock:

      Used for securing bike in City. While a formidable and very tamper resistant lock, I do not find it easily detachable from mount and clumsy to use. Short of length compared to other U type bolts.

      Comments about Kryptonite Evolution-STD U-Lock:

      This lock has lasted me two years, and is still going strong. It's been dropped, run over, and probably peed on, and it still works like new. I use this downtown as well as on campus, and am not afraid to lock up my bike in even the sketchiest parts of town. However, any criminal with a van and some powertools could probably make off with my bike in a few minutes. But as far as bolt cutters, crowbars, hacksaws, and hammers are concerned, there is no getting through this lock. And even if someone does manage to nab your bike, this lock comes with something like $2500 insurance for the first year. get yourself a Kryptonite Krytoflex cable to go with it, and you're set.

      Clunky way of fastening to bike frame

            Comments about Kryptonite Evolution-STD U-Lock:

            The little metal thing that Kryptonite designed to hold the lock onto a frame is really not a good design, especially for small-framed bikes. I've jammed my fingers on this thing over and over, and also the bracket that should be attached to the bike itself, that holds onto the metal thing, is always falling off.

            Rattles when mounted to frame

            Comments about Kryptonite Evolution-STD U-Lock:

            I use this lock for my commuter bike. When mounted to the bike frame or seat post the U part vibrates against the locking bar like a rattle. It's like a having percussion section while riding. I wish I checked it out for this before buying it. There is a workaround: tie an old cut-off rubber inner tube to secure the parts together while you ride. Makes using it a pain, though.
