Default Do you lock up your bike? Some ideas here.

I have been pondering the Kryptonite or OnGuard 14mm G70 (grade) lock deals on the bay.. The Krypto is made in Taiwan and the Onguard in China.. Both have 6' of chain and a fancy lock for about 100 bucks. Than I started wondering if the USA still made anything besides plastic bottles and other plastic things.. (If anyone knows of a killer padlock made here that will fit please advise) .. 16 trillion in debt.. Need to trim the fat.

So here is what I found.. 1/2" seems closest to the 14mm size used. 5/8" is also available in some places!!

1/2" x 20ft G70 Transport Safety Tie Down Tow Chain

1/2 Loose Chain Grade 80

Grade 100 5/8 Alloy Chain

The stuff ain't cheap but look at the length you get! so it is like 3 chains for the price of 1..

Keep in mind that this is G70 chain and that G80 and G100 chain exist!!

Below are some probably Chinese alternatives to keep an open mind here..
