Cable lock? Why cable over something better, like a quality chain or U-lock? Even a folding style lock would be more secure. But security lecture aside I'm unaware of a quality cable lock of any kind. What level of theft is your 'hood? What exactly are you trying to prevent?

I have one of these for my ebike. 47" long cable surrounded by 7/8" thick, interlocking steel shackles. It's light, very flexible and too thick for most bolt and cable cutters to even get a bite. Note that bolt cutters won't cut thru the cable and cable cutters can't cut thru the steel shackles. The whole thing is surrounded by plastic. Key only comes out when the cable is locked. I generally leave it unlocked with the key in the lock so I don't have to worry about forgetting or losing the key. You will lose a key if you lock it and leave the key in. I've known the local bike shop people pretty well for years. They highly recommended it. $41 at my local Giant bike store.


You can see the shackles thru the plastic cover. The links are pretty flexible. It easily wraps up into an 8" diameter spool so you can put easy put it in the pet carrier.

If your worrying about it being rolled away get a disc lock. If you go with a disc lock get the reminder cable and make sure you always use the reminder loop (from the disc to your grip) so you don't ride away with the lock still installed. Ask me how I know......

The cable Minguel suggest will work okay, I just don't care for cable locks personally. But something is better than nothing any day. Just buy a lock in person to make sure it fits thru your wheel or disc.

I use a heavy duty U-lock by Abus if I find myself going into "bad" areas. It will prevent a roll away theft and hopefully stop dumb thieves from trying to punch out my ignition. I have chipped keys and to replace that is not cheap.

I just gave away 2 disc locks from my motorcycle days. 2 Kryptonites (1 Fahgettaboutit and 1 Evolution).

I use a FoldyLock Compact on my electric kick scooter. I use a HipLok Lite on my beach cruiser. Abus 420 U-lock for my Liberty as a back-up. Also have a Kryptonite Evolution standard laying aroung and a few weird OnGuard locks as well. I'll try to post a picture.

The BIG chain has been locked to my front porch rail for 10 years, I had to cut the jammed U-lock off to save the chain.

The combo lock is a older, no longer made, OnGaurd sheathed cable lock. I set the combo to a easy combo. I use it to lock up bicycles on my porch that I fix for friends o they can pick it up when I'm not home.
