Re: Lost keys, Question about key code for replacement.
You should be thankful getting replacement keys are this difficult. That's what locks are designed to do. The comfort of security is an expensive, but worthwhile lesson.
A GOOD locksmith can take apart the lock and make new keys or rekey a new pattern for you. Since they depend on their reputation, they are inclined to do honest work and know that the bike is yours. That means they might check to see if the bike is stolen.
You can even rekey the lock yourself, but most people don't know how to use a hammer, punch, grinder, and work with little brass and steel parts.
