Kryptonite Bike Locks Defeated by Pens

You've probably heard already that the U-shaped Kryptonite Bike locks can be broken into using a ball point pen. It's bad news for bike enthusiasts who have shelled upwards of $50 on these locks. There's even videos showing how to pick the locks with the average Bic pen. Kryptonite is coming out with a new model that cannot be compromised so easily, but until then anybody using the older models should use another type of lock or just drive/take the bus.
