I didn't think it was necessary, but Kyrptonite has responded to "Gone in 60 Seconds." I'll attest that high quality locks from Kryptonite and other high-end lock vendors are effective in preventing bike theft. Sure, a determined thief with the right tools can defeat these locks, but I think most of us realize that locks are deterrents, not absolute preventatives. Picking the right lock is an exercise in risk management.

PIcking the right lock is an exercise in risk management.
Indeed, especially if you're not a good lock picker :)
