Your commitment to your bike.
Pedaling into the office for a day of work takes commitment on its own, but there's a second commitment you need to make when you get there: keeping your steed secure. The Abus Catena 685 Key Chain Lock makes for a solid option to give you peace of mind while you work away, thanks to its 110cm length of temper hardened steel chain links wrapping around your ride. The chain is wrapped up in a burly nylon sleeve, keeping your bike protected from scratches, and the chain its self protected from the elements outside, should the weatherman call for a drizzle. The lock is lighter than many U-locks, making it easier to carry when wrapped around your seatpost, but admittedly not quite as strong, so if your office is in an urban metropolis you might want to consider something a little burlier. It has a lock head that is pick-resistant, and comes along with two keys, so you can keep a backup in your desk at work in case you forgot your keys on top of the dresser at home.

No issues so far
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
A few things that are like about this lock is the weight, the look and the materials used. The lock is pretty light considering the materials used. I think the fabric sheath makes the lock look bulkier than it is, which can help deter thieves. The steel links are definitely and upgrade from cable links. I pair this with an Abus U lock and feel pretty darn safe leaving my bike in most areas, although, no lock can keep a bike completely safe.
