Hey, My current chain is barely long enough to go around a post and the rearmost part of the wheel, so I’m planning on an upgrade that will hopefully be both more secure and a bit easier and less mucky to do. I don’t park up away from either home or the office, both quite secure, aside once a week when I have to park for a couple of hours in a city centre motorbike bay. A noose chain looks like a good option for portability as it almost halves the length of chain required. I get that one end goes around either the bike frame or anchor, but how do I secure the other end? I saw one option of creating another loop at the other end by cutting the sleeve and passing a link through another link, and securing with a padlock. While that sounds good, it means some extra length to the chain. Also, the space to get in around the frame is quite tight. The U-part of a lock fits okay, but a chunky chain might not. Another option (as I’ve mocked up above using my bicycle lock) would be to have the noose tail run up to the bike, and then use a disc lock such as this Abus to lock the bike and chain together. There are are also D locks like the Pragmasis D lock, but I worry that at 130mm, it will leave too much space with in the D, leaving it vulnerable to levering. If anyone else is using a noose chain, how are you securing the tail end?
