Just the right length very easy to use. Very secure lock the 5 ft lock is perfect length.
I've really only had the lock bracketed to my bike for a few hours total riding time, but the plastic bracket already snapped into two pieces, causing the lock to fall to the ground mid-ride. Poor quality.
Bought this for my bike and easy to use and compact. The wire is sufficient to keep it around and lock the bike. For the cost I paid for, its worth it.
Setting your own combination is easy and nothing has broken in over 3 years of use. The bike and the lock live outside and the lock still looks like the day I purchased it. I would recommend this lock. The seat post mount is a little flimsy and has come loose a couple of times, but that's just a matter of loosening it and then re-tightening (not over tightening) it.
I bought two of these cable locks to use on our bikes, but they also secure my kyyak (one on either side) to the roof rack of the SUV; really good quality lock and easy to set the combination code to something we can remember
