I agree but as my son and I are just good weather LOW mileage park riders "Places of interest" in Wales as an example and stop at the odd Cafe I think Pinheads and Abus Granite D locks are fine at £70 each.
I would not leave any bike in London or a large city, but then I have never been to a City
For most cafes and places of interest in Wales, I'd say Pinheads and Abus Granites are even overkill. That said, unless you really think you'll notice the difference in weight and/or space between an Abus Granite and a lesser lock, might as well use them!
