Question What chains do you recommend?

I'm looking for a 5' to 7' chain for a bike. I live at an apartment so I will need the length to secure it to the carport support. I'd slide it through the swingarm and rear tire.

I'm considering ABUS 59 Extreme Granit Plus, OnGuard Beast, or Kryptonite's NY Fahgettaboutit Chain. What do you guys recommend or have experience with?

Thanks.

chain for security right? just head to a hardware store and get the fattest one. make sure your apartment complex will allow you to chain it up to their property.

No chain will stop someone if they really want it. I saw a wrecker using a hydraulic shear on a huge chain and it cut it like butter.
That being said, I've used / continue to use the Kryptonite NY Fahgettaboutit chain.
Other than a torch or the aforementioned shear, it's about the toughest I've seen.

I had a roommate that got about 6' of chain and wrapped about 5 rolls of duct tape around it, leaving 1/2 a link on each side for the lock to barely go through. It took both of us to bend the thing enough to be able to lock it together. The one night he didn't lock it up, it was stolen. :BangHead: It's not going to stop a thief, but will add unnecessary time for them, and they'll likely bypass it for an easier target.

Maverick,

I was planning on getting one 11mm chain and one 25mm steel cable lock and use both of them to secure the bike. Park the bike as close as you can to the carport post. The chain needs to be at least 5 feet in length. Slide the chain through the swingarm (if your swingarm has a hole) and through the rear tire, then wrap it around the carport support.

Thanks to everyone who replied.
