Bike lock that explodes if cut by bolt-cutters?
Will not explode if proper key is inserted.

damn I think I need to build my commuter already so I don't leave my road bike out in the open.

Apparently, it wasn't the U-lock that was sawed off, it was the rail itself, as in they cut the thing that the bike itself was locked to.
I guess locking up your bike properly isn't enough, you have to consider even more what it is locked to.
Apparently banister railing aint good enough.

Yeah, this has been going on for awhile now actually, cutting through railings in the UCLA area. My friend's been stopped twice by the cops to question if he's a bike thief, though if they got a good look at the crappy bike they would've thought otherwise. :P Did your friend report this to UCLA pd yet?

I hear foldies are pretty big in NY to combat thievery.

i think this is the first time we cant call someone an idiot for using a cable lock.
at my school there are couple bike racks that have the railings cut too.
