contest: Evolution Series 4 Mini 1055 Kryptonite

The word "Mini" does it for me. I like small things, small and strong is even better. I don't own a car and ride a folding bicycle in LA. A small and strong lock in the coat pocket would be nice!

2 lock system

I just got a new road bike that I use to commute to work everyday and it has quick release wheels. I'd love to be able to use this lock to secure my front wheel -- and thereby use a 2 lock system. Thanks!

Well let me think. What a great gift it would be to be able to give this amazing lock to my young daughter. I have experienced the loss of a bike, only getting the frame back and I was without transportation for some time. I would be great that my daughter would not have to see such a loss. Hura for Kryptonite for keeping our bikes under our toosh.

Fat & cheap = i need to win

I lost the key to my lock and because i'm too cheap & poor to buy a new one, i haven't been riding and instead, opting to stay in and drink beer. As a result, i'm getting pretty chunky. I'd love to win so i can get out and ride again.

Forgot to get a suitable Christmas Present for my best friend

She hardly ever rides her bicycle any longer as her standard-size U-lock is "too clunky looking and it makes me look like a dork" I think this would double up as a cool necklace while riding until needed to secure her bicycle!

Bike May Be Pregnant

My bike was born and raised on a small travelling carnival, but ran away and join a home after bumping into me one night at the Coke machine in the parking lot of a Niagara Falls motel, where we - after a pit-stop at the ice machine - went back to the room and watched a teenage Jody Foster give acting a bad name in the movie “Carny” on the late, late show.
No thank you: my bike doesn't want fancy panniers, just an Evolution Series 4 Mini 1055 Integrated Chain lock from Kryptonite....won as a prize, of course (in the time-honoured carny tradition).

lock

I need this lock to lock the front wheel of many bikes. As I use the u-locks to lock frame and rear wheel to rack. I believe in the two lock system to secure my bikes.

Why I need the lock

Winning the lock will keep me from assaulting the next guy who tries to steal my ride.

For my best friend

My best friend has two small children, and her husband and she share one car. I've been a lifelong bicycle commuter and utility rider (use my Burley for groceries - and all!) and have finally convinced her that living in Washington, DC, gives her the perfect opportunity to shuttle her kids to/from school on a bike. She's going to need MUCH more than just a lock like this, but it would be a wonderful start to the lock family I'm going to help her to build.

I would love to have a new lock for my dream bike that is currently being built. I recently ordered a Soma Buena Vista through my LBS and hope to see it before I celebrate my 39th birthday (late January). I've wanted the bike for well over a year, and she deserves something strong to keep her safe and sound.

Kryptonite

Why do I need to win? Because of this article...

The Hoboken Police Department, with the assistance of the Jersey City Police Department, recovered two vans packed with stolen bicycles and arrested three men involved in a suspected bike theft ring. City police officers arrested three men yesterday they say were involved in a bicycle theft ring in Jersey City and Hoboken.

Authorities also recovered 52 stolen bicycles that were packed into two vans.

A must have to comple my U lock

A good bike must be well securise in town. So this mini chain lock would be usefull to lock the second wheel that is not attached with the U lock.

Locks of luck

I don't need a lock - but my son does. He's a hard-working guy, riding his bike through the snow, rain, and cold at 6:30 in the morning to get to work. He's borrowing his roommate's lock now, but come nicer weather .... (he'll need his own).
Help me help him to keep riding!

I want to win this lock because it's flexible and can go around things like trees and lamp posts that are too wide for horseshoe locks and can bend to get to the bike and is light weight and compact enough to be carried inside a pannier or rack pack.

2 Wheels good, no wheels bad

I need a new lock. I commute to work in downtown Toronto and have to lock up in a rough part of town. My bike needs all the help it can get.

Jorge Chaves more than 1 year ago

I need that baby lock!

One lock isn't enough for my city bike. Generator hub front wheel and internal hub in back--it takes two to tango on the urban dance floor.

My bike was stolen from my apartment complex....I would like to avoid this next time!

My Bike

The lack of a lock is keeping me from planning rides into the city for coffee and other knick-knack type cycling joys. Having a lock would give me the peace of mind in known that I won't have to really worry about someone picking up my bike and jolly-riding off with it while I stop for some coffee. Sure, I can buy a lock but winning one would it make the whole thing all the more epic.

I like my bike

The last bike that got stolen from me, they broke my car window and pulled my bike out of the back seat. Point being, they will do anything to take a bike in Detroit, and i wish i had locked it up, even in my car. This lil thing would do the trick.

Mike more than 1 year ago

I am a street vigilante with a bicycle and would hate for my winter transportation to be stolen!

Evolution Series 4 Mini 1055 Integrated Chain

It would be a lot easier to lock up the family cargo bike with this lock, than a u-lock, and more secure than a cable lock. It will also lay flat and be less cumbersome across the bottom of the FreeLoaders.

Chris Nygaard more than 1 year ago

theory of evolution

Because I want to keep my bike, but I don't have a big bag to put a lock in so I really need this one. Strong and small. Perfect.

Kryptonite Evolution Series 4 Mini 1055 Integrated Chain lock

It's a great looking, flexible lock that would work perfect on the varied type of stuff I encounter when out and about, shopping etc, and need to secure my bike. Getting the standard shaped locks around some stuff or finding the right pole etc to lock it to can be a pain. The flexibility gives great options.

Ralph Branch more than 1 year ago

why?

The lock's orange accent will go so well draped over the shoulder of my black leather riding jacket.

Evo 4 mini

So I can ride my bike to places where I am afraid to park without my bike getting ripped off.For example library,store or anywhere.

Timothy Summers more than 1 year ago

evo 4 mini

Ones lockage ought not dwarf the velo; should easily come along wheather on the folding 20 or faithful tourist. This fills the bill! Yes please,i'll ride home with it.

need a new good lock - my bike was stolen...

unfortunately my bike was stolen, together with the kids back chair and other stuff connected to the bike.
The thieves cut the fence ...
Now I need to buy everything back, so I hope to win this new lock!

Need a good lock in TO

Looks like a good lock ! The hubby was one snip away from having his old lock cut and the bike (with baby seat) stolen while he was at work !

extra security in NYC

I will be moving to New York City this spring. I would love some extra security for my precious 3-speed.

Kryptonite

The teachers my strike again and I can't afford childcare. In pretty sure my son won't be stolen with this lock. Also if I get mad at superman ill be able to take him out.
And yes I have a bike.

KRYPTONITE

I would love to win this awesome lock because my own Kryptonite U-lock has gotten very rusty from being left out in the rain a few too many times. A new lock would make me feel a lot better about leaving my bike without worrying about not being able to pull my rusty lock apart.

This lock will help me lock up my cargo bikes

My cargo bike is really hard to lock up using a u-lock. It's a big bike and it doesn't snug up to the bike rack easily or quickly and so I use a cheap cable lock, but it feels like it's just waiting to be stolen. I carry kids in/on my bike, so I just don't have time to make a u-lock work when I stop at the store or the school, etc, but this chain lock sure would help me be more secure in my quick locking...

Thanks for considering it!

I like bike security

I just recently had a bike stolen because of sub par locks, and I would really not take this lock for granted! I need it to keep my Traitor safe.

Kyle more than 1 year ago

I would ike to win

I would like to win this lock to protect my bike. I have a cable and older lock along with an old u lock. I am not too confident to leave my bike out for extended periods. With a bad boy like this, I would feel more comfortable leaving my bike out.

Great Lock

I just simply want to win this great lock because I cant not really afford it, after I spend all my money on my new bike.

Ahmed Zuberi more than 1 year ago

Why I need this lock.

I just finished building up my first home-made frame, so I need something dependable to lock it up with.

Secure

The Kryptonite locks are the most secure brand on the market. Need for continual bike safety.

David Higley more than 1 year ago

Momentum Mag Contests

The lock has the combination of being tough and resistant to cracking and being flexible which will permit me to use it to get around a tree or a thick post or something else that a horseshoe lock won't go around.

Evolution Series 4 Mini 1055

I just put together a 1972 Schwinn Sports Tourer for a half-truck/half-bike commute into downtown Peoria and need something way better than a 1972 lock to secure it with.

Sam Joslin more than 1 year ago

Win kryptonite lock

I would love this lock to protect my expensive dutch bike better than the cable lock I have now. The bike is so heavy already that adding a big chain is just too much weight. This would be perfect and make me less paranoid. I'd be more inclined to ride to more "shadier" places with it that I avoid now and take my older bicycle to.

Margarita more than 1 year ago

I've vowed to never lose another bike

I had a bike stolen about 2 years ago & since then have been storing my bikes inside the apt. My wife isn't a fan of this solution but I sleep better. This lock, in combination with others will probably provide enough peace of mind for me to store my bikes outside again & save my marriage...

I love my cruiser's balloon tires

I have white-walled tires on my cherry red cruiser. I have an irrational fear that a light fingered hipster might one day covet my tires and mount them on their ride to be ironic. That would be depressing and nothing harshes my mellow like a lost wheel and tire.

So my wheels don't roll away on their own

I love my ride, use it for transport, utility, fitness, fun. The Kryptonite Evolution Series 4 looks like security that is serious and will keep my rig where it belongs, under me. Plus, have you seen someone who comes out to where they locked up only to find no bike? It's very unhappy cat, and sad.

More is better

I would like that lock to add some extra security and peace of mind when I lock up my bike, they do say that "more is definitely better" and I reckon that we be the perfect match with my Kryptonite Series 2 lock and kryptonite cables. Plus if I catch the thieves at it, I could always use it to help with a citizens arrrest, by the looks of that a perfect hit will keep the scroat down.... ;-P

Evo Mini to combat the Evil Maxies!

It would be SUPER helpful to combine such a light, but secure chain with my evo mini u-lock on my cargo bike--one front/one rear. Using multiple lock modalities should significantly deter those Evil Maxie bike thieves!

Need a lock

Had someone over the weekend try to pry my bike off a rack. Damaged my 8 year old Kryptonite U-lock and ruined a nice wheelset. Need something to deter wannabe bike thiefs!

Why I need the kryptonite chain lock

I really need this lock because I a teacher who bikes to work all year. Recently I've noticed some dad's drooling over my fat tire bike, and I feel the need to ease their temptaiton so they can continue to be good role models for their children. ;~D

Deanne more than 1 year ago

Chain lock

I am 3/4 the way done with building my tall bike and a chain lock would be more helpful for securing it than u locks..... That is if anyone is crazy enough to steal a tall bike.

Joseph szul more than 1 year ago

I want to give it away.

I want the lock so I can give it away in my own raffle. =)

Ramon more than 1 year ago

Hampered by mini u locks!

All I own are mini u locks and this makes locking up difficult sometimes, especially with a cargo bike. The flexibility of a chain lock would allow for an easier lock job.

Why I want to win an Evolution Series 4 Mini 1055 Integrated Chain lock from Kryptonite

I have a Kryptonite mini U-lock, but it's not big enough to fit around the rack, my frame and my front wheel. Having a solid chain lock would allow me to park my bike without worrying about having to ride a unicycle home!

My Bike Was Stolen

My bike was stolen while I was bike touring in the USA (I got it back through a miracle) - I have a cable lock now but lord knows they aren't very secure. A nice little lock like this would make a perfect touring companion.

It looks long enough to secure both of our bikes when we ride errands together. More important, the color compliments my bright yellow utility bike!
