Holy Krypto-Holder, Batman!

People asks us which lock they should buy and if there is a slick way to carry a lock on the Mundo.  I wanted to point out that I have found this nifty way to carry a Kryptonite lock on the Mundo.  It’s fast and easy to remove and re-lock to the rack and it stays put when there.  Simple and elegant.  This is the Kyrptonite 4″ x 11″ lock.  In order for this to work, you need to remove the small tab from the lock that is used to mount the lock on the kryptonite lock carrier that attaches to the bike frame.  It comes off really easily by lostening a little allen screw in the tab.  In my experience, that system doesn’t last anyway.

By the way, there are lots of great web sites will give you a guide to which lock you should buy and how to properly lock your bike like this one on Kryptonites’ Web Site or this one at

Is it possible to use too many locks?  Hmm…

    One note: The lock shown is not a Kryptonite model, I believe it is an Onguard Bulldog LS 5009 model. The comparable Kryptonite model is the Kryptolock Series 2 LS model, which I believe would also work on a v 3.0 Mundo as pictured.

    Also, this mounting does not work with the v 4.0 Mundo.

    After doing my research on locks I find the Abus Bordo 6500 the best. I own several of these and sofar non of my bicycles either in New York or Berlin got stolen. They are really easy to carry around and also come with a puch which goes on the bicycle frame.
