I’m trying to pick open my rear spoke lock so I can remove it and replace it with one I have the key for. I’ve been picking it for days, with an electric pick gun, a rake, and a conventional pick. I can’t get it to open! I can’t imagine it’s too secure, and shining a light in it reveals a standard pin and tumbler style lock, so why won’t it open?
There’s a little bit of in and out play while it’s sitting in its integrated rear rack spot, and is spring loaded. I’ve tried picking with the spring compressed, and with it released, still nothing. I’ve tried tensioning it both directions to no avail. I don’t want to drill it out, because I tried and failed at that with my fork lock and it was too messy/ruined too many drill bits. If anyone’s ever picked this lock or has experience let me know.
Attached is an image of the lock.
