I got two of my four U-locks open with a Bic pen, and helped bust the story open on bikeforums. Funny thing is, it was known about, but obscurely, for over 10 years. Kryptonite and Planet Bike offered to replace ALL such locks for free (I got all four of mine replaced). Of course, this is a little different, as a U-lock provides real security for something that could be a real theft target, unlike the "theft deterrent" factory radio. (Wanna know what its true "theft deterrent" is? The fact that it's a factory radio!)

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
