kryptonite locks

I have two Kryptonite bike locks. The more expensive of the two (this guy) I bought just out of frustration when my last bike got stolen, but it's so damn heavy that I hardly ever use it.

I think it was evan that said bike_weight + lock_weight = constant.

Anyway, that expensive lock is vulnerable to the Bic-pen exploit. That's right, you can open it with a pen. I tested it myself... not too hard, once I figured out which way to turn the thing.

So I guess starting the 22nd Kryptonite will offer some exchange program, if any of you guys care, or have been living under a rock for the past week and missed boingboing, slashdot, etc....
