Oxford Nemesis Chain
Customer Product Reviews
The H in Heavy Duty.
I bought the 2 meter chain which is perfect if not a bit to long to go through the bk wheel & over the saddle. These chains are designed to protect ur bike at home to heavy to carry around. If you want a chain to protect ur bike this is the one .16mm links bolt cutters won't touch it even a battery grinder will take a while. I love it, In saying that it's a pain to use daily but it means my bike will stay mine so worth the hassle.
I bought the 1.5 m version. The weight and thickness of this chain is quite imposing, hopefully I will never have to see how strong it is but visually I think it's a good deterrent. The lock is lighter by comparison but again a good visual deterrent. Overall happy with my purchase at a great price. Again SBS were awesome.
Looks like it means business!
Bought on strength of some good reviews,certainly appears well made & solid. Used in a shed with a ground anchor,wouldn't want to be carting it about! Fits the job perfectly for me. Good price & quick delivery as per usual Sportsbikeshop standards.
Good chain and lock
Good chain and lock, bought this as it scored well in a RiDE product review. Quite heavy so not easy to take places (but you could depending on bike/luggage). I bought the 2m version, only just long enough for a large bike. Have used lock as a disk lock when out and about.
Great security chain
Great security chain for my current scooter (Piaggio Medley 125). Providing you have adequate luggage storage on your bike/scooter this chain can actually be carried around. Mine fits well underneath the seat of my sccoter. Obviously not every bike has such luggage storage facility.
It's difficult to assess an item that just adds weight to everything else you carry, but this chain and lock is very heavy and looks as though a lot of noise and effort would have to be made to destroy it. At the end of the day it's rather like a parachute, but the only way you really know it works is if you have to deploy it. For this reason you rely on the tests that have been carried out on the chains and hope it never gets tested on your bike!... I agree with the other reviews, it is extremely robust looking and very heavy. On a recent trip out, I did manage to carry it with me by wrapping it round the rear carrier on my Tiger Explorer. On reflection I think it would be ideal for use at home, but too heavy to take on tour. The other area of concern is that you really want this off the ground (to avoid hammer strikes) and through the rear wheel and frame. I found this to be very difficult with a 1.5 metre chain. The exercise is even more difficult if you want to chain it to another object, like railings or a ground anchor. For this reason I would recommend the 2 metre chain, and make sure you get a ground anchor big enough to take these links - they are very big! Overall, I was very impressed. If I were to buy another of these to secure all my bikes together, I would opt for the longer chain.
Best money for value
This is the second Nemesis chain I bought from SBS. It's at a very good price and this is probably the best money for value chain on the market. Totally recommend. Bear in mind that this is not suitable for commute given is weight. Feels strong and well built and some reviews in the internet from reliable sources prove that this is a good value choice. Once again superstar service from Sportsbikeshop.
