    I usually have my bikes locked up in a locked shed.
    This guy on youtube makes me wonder why.
    Hopefully not every thief is this confident.

    I don’t care how well spoken or clever the cunt on the video is. Putting this type of stuff on the internet and selling tools to pick locks is just wrong.

    FC i have seen this same guy open locks in seconds on youtube. Short answer is if they want your bike they just bring a battery grinder and cut the lock in 30s or less. Both bikes are agreed value insured so dont care if they get nicked....probably end up with more $ anyway

    The bloke has many posts boasting about how he can pick any lock, and he always seems to with ease.
    My bikes are insured too and I don't reckon that guy is the least bit interested in them. So not losing any sleep on his account.
    It would be nice to see a lock making company make one the cunt could not pick though.
    He is making a mockery of them.

    FC locks are just a visual deterrent. Hopefully the villain moves on to a bike/trailer that doesn't have a lock

    I don't think he is a villain. Just think he enjoys picking locks.
    Surely one of the lock manufacturers can make one that is unpickable.

    FC i wasn't referring to the guy picking the lock in the vid.....i was referring to the villain who was going to potentially come and pinch your bike

    I'd say he's providing a service by showing the shortcomings of various locks. I don't think he sells tools, but you can buy anything online.
