The Oxford chain range is quite broad, especially in terms of price. Which would ordinarily prompt me to put a disc lock, minder cable, alarmed lock AND XL chain on.
Strangely, after a conversation with a more experienced biker (an older chap), my faith has been restored somewhat in the more budget end chains.
Despite the potential for it to be a kentucky fried rat of a tale, he told me when all the best spots to chain your bike up are taken; wrapping this chain around a car tyre was the best way to go.
You would assume this would be a bad plan, cars weigh anything up to two tonnes and having that rolling over your chain wont exactly prolong its life span. Wrong.
He produced the chain in question and a little of the blue paint had been replaced with finest Bridgestone rubber tread. No other damage. So if even a car rolling over it, numerous times, slowly wont break it. What change to thieves have? Top Product.
