If you own a Kryptonite U-lock for your bicycle, listen up. The Internet is buzzing with the news that it can be opened with a Bic pen. I've seen convincing video. Kryptonite's Web site doesn't acknowledge the problem, but this AP story says Kryptonite is accelerating the development of a new, pen-resistant lock. No mention of any refunds to customers. Can Kryptonite be held liable? Meanwhile, guard your bikes and get new locks. What a tragedy for everyday bicycle transportation use.
