The Best Bike Lock

Although pandemic-related bike shortages have eased, bike thieves are still a persistent plague. The first line of defense: a good bike lock. To find the best bike lock, we ordered 33 of the toughest we could find and then sawed, chopped, and cut them to pieces. We learned that almost every lock can be defeated in under a minute, but the Kryptonite New-U Evolution Mini-7 offers enough of a security advantage over other locks in its price range to keep a modest commuter bike from becoming an easy target for thieves.
