    Movie 1

    Movie 2

    kryptonite bike locks are:
    the best on the market
    the most secure
    the most indestructible
    open-able in 20 seconds with a 10 cent bic pen

    and the correct answer is "open-able in 20 seconds with a 10 cent bic pen". details of how to open any bike lock using a cylindrical key (including most kryptonite locks) have been blowing up a number of bike websites and discussion boards in the last few days and sure enough, it's easy as pie.

    check out this quicktime video of me cracking my $90 kryptonite EV disc lock in about 20 seconds.

    bike owners beware, that same bright yellow lock that once said "don't screw with me" now screams "steal me!". obviously, i post this information as a warning to lock owners - not as a how-to. stealing is bad. stealing bikes is worse.

    it seriously took me under 60 seconds to open my old Krypto Evolution 2000 lock... I use one of the new Krypto New York Locks that have the keys that look like car keys, i guess these are not defective... if you look at the serial number on your key (the metal piece with numbers engraved) the kryptonite locks have kk- - - - or yse- - - - or nba- - - -
    the kk numbers key locks are the ones having the issues.

    People don't lock their bikes here in Japan. Go to any train station and there are hundreds of bikes. People here just aren't assholes like in the states I guess.
