comment what is the most secure bicycle combination lock?
@Unsliced: my front door is also going to be keyless, wallet - I don't need it unless I go shopping, phone is also not something that I need to take, especially when going swimming in a wild lake.

comment what is the most secure bicycle combination lock?
@Unsliced: the main objective is not to have to carry any objects while away from the bike, but enabling another person to collect the bike is a sometimes useful positive side-effect. Anyway, do you know of any fingerprint bike-locks on the market?

@user973810: downvoted, because its a non-answer. Did the question ask whether combination locks where generally inferior to keyed locks? No. And instead of applying common sense you chose to be sarcastic, wasting readers time with non-information.

@heltonbiker: I plan to make my home keyless also. I don't want to have to carry any objects. I don't want to discuss the reasons here, because its off-topic to this question - this question is about finding the most secure combination lock on the market, NOT about discussing whether to use keyed locks. Keyed locks don't exist for me, period.

@NeilFein: of course I'll use two locks, but I want to choose the two absolutely best combination locks out there, so that's why this question. I now have a TRELOCK FS 200 CODE and a Squire Snaplok 260, but I'm trying to find out are there any better combo locks out there that these two.

@DanielRHicks: trying out all 3-digit combinations in 3 minutes? 4-digit in 10 minutes? I think you got these numbers seriously wrong. Given that one can probably test 1 combination per second, with 3 digits that is 1000 seconds (about 15 minutes). 4 digits makes it 10000 seconds (about 2 hours 45 minutes). And I doubt someone can sustain such speed that long, you have to rest your hands sometimes, so 4 digits will be at least 3 hours.

linuxsquirrel.livejournal.com/45571.html here a guy describes how easily he cracked it by "turning the rightmost cylinder notch by notch, pushing in at each stop". That's not good.

Here is a guy opening the ABUS Bordo Combo 6100: youtube.com/watch?v=fJ6FH1dzYQc so I was looking for something better. He doesn't show how exactly he does it, but it seems he can. There must be something better, some manufacturer who can make a combination lock in which you can't feel nor hear the difference between digits.

@zenbike: well, both equally - as the thief will probably attack the weakest point, so its no good having a physically strong lock if the thief can somehow feel or hear the most probable digit. And vice versa.
