I thought that Kryptonite replaced a bunch of u-locks because of the tubular lock... is this any safer than those that were easily broken into with a plastic bic pen barrel?

Kryptonite after being purchased by Ingersol Rand, changed their key way to avoid a licensing fee. Tubular keys with .360" and .370" key ways are still hard to pick. It is in fact the .340" key way with few differences in cut depth that made many of the newer tubular kryptonite locks easy to pick.

This little guy is solid, but the small size is an issue. The size makes carrying it around easy, but it also means there are only certain places you can lock it up.
Are these the same type of barrel locks that Krptonite failed to adequately address when it was shown how incredibly easy it was to pick?

No, Kryptonite switched to the flat style key they currently use. Master and On Guard also use flat keys. I can't find a barrel lock anywhere else. I would strongly caution against these locks until someone confirms they cannot be picked using that method, if they can they are beyond worthless.

I don't believe so. Kryptonite addressed the issue after the fact and still used a similar style key. I believe this should not be a problem.
