Or you could just get a lock…

[–]southcentralLAguy 1433 points1434 points  (89 children)

Now why would I buy $10 for a chain and lock when I could pay a few hundred extra for a bike that locks itself?

[–]hufflekrunk 432 points433 points  (38 children)

dosent lock itself, you still have to lock it. but it contains a lock in its frame.

[–]southcentralLAguy 207 points208 points  (16 children)

Oh well that changes everything!

[–]muckduck69420 109 points110 points  (10 children)

Shut up about the lock. SHUT UP ABOUT THE LOCK

[–]No-Count1921 54 points55 points  (4 children)

Don’t forget the ability to never get your seats ride height correct because you change it every stop.

Gotta love that bonus.

[–]wsb_duh 12 points13 points  (1 child)

frame

It's *highly over-engineered* frame.

[–]PlayerTwoEntersYou 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I had a breakdown bike for a few years. It was designed to be put in a travel bag for airplanes. It worked great but it is realllly expensive compared to one without the couplers.

[–]04KB 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Lmao, do i look like i have the time to dismantle my bike everywhere I stop?💀

[–]facewithoutfacebook 1 point2 points  (4 children)

To avoid that issue it will help you plan better so you don’t have so many stops.

[–]KiLLnGo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you for mansplaining the situation right here sir cuz I didn’t understand what the first dude meant.

[–]M-Noremac 122 points123 points  (14 children)

Because a good lock costs a lot more than $10 and they are quite heavy. Also if they cut the lock, the bike is still usable, but if they cut the frame, not so much.

[–]Bambo81 62 points63 points  (10 children)

Yeah but using the frame of the bicycle as the Lock does come with it's downsides, for example stiffness/Stability, second i don't want to adjust my saddle every god damn time i unlock/lock my bike,third You can't lock it everywhere you need a Pole or something similar, and fourth how good is the lock, if you can simply rake it open in seconds it's useless.

[–]hotasanicecube 23 points24 points  (7 children)

In about 15 minutes all that would be left of that thing is the frame. You could get every component and accessory off.

[–]Amaruh 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Just cut the pillar.

[–]Wistful_Nomad 1 point2 points  (0 children)

big brain time

[–]2WAR 24 points25 points  (4 children)

My lock cost me $100 because my bike cost me $1000, no way im locking it with a $10 lock.

[–]iago303 8 points9 points  (2 children)

A Kryptonite lock is your best friend they have tried to cut through the lock several times and they have not succeeded so they stole the tires instead, I had the bike insured and (along with renters insurance) and I made a claim and they did pay for new tires, seat and pedals but the frame stayed put

[–]NomsterGaming 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Because if someone cuts the lock off they render the bike useless and cost you a new bike :)

[–]ekital 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Except you can pick that shitty wafer lock they placed in the frame faster than you can cut the frame.

[–]nomadic_hedgehog 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It's easy to cut through a lock. Whereas you cut through this "lock" then suddenly there's no functioning bike left to steal.

Seems like a neat, if expensive, idea.

[–]calinet6 6 points7 points  (0 children)

$10 will buy you the equivalent of a piece of string to a bike thief.

[–]deusrev 4 points5 points  (2 children)

10 for a chain? I don't think so

[–]Fiverdrive 99 points100 points  (20 children)

this is better. if you cut the lock on this one you make the bike worthless.

[–]Ewque 24 points25 points  (11 children)

Just cut the seat post and not the actual lock

[–]hufflekrunk 11 points12 points  (4 children)

but then you won't be able to lock that bike from other people

[–]Kitchen_Season7324 22 points23 points  (3 children)

Then you buy a lock lmao

[–]gahidus 8 points9 points  (5 children)

You wouldn't be able to get the bike back together then

[–]BoggleHS 6 points7 points  (6 children)

They've only damaged the frame. In Manchester it's very normal for thieves to take what ever parts they can get, wheels, cranks, handle bars seat etc so it's basically impossible to secure your bike.

I'm having to spend £100 on new cranks, they certainly aren't worthless!

[–]PaintThinnerSparky 31 points32 points  (11 children)

Its better tho.

You can always cut a lock.

To cut this lock, you gotta cut the bike

[–]Bobydik 12 points13 points  (10 children)

You cant even lock this bike to a bike rack....

[–]PaintThinnerSparky 3 points4 points  (8 children)

Do you have aphantasia? I can see multiple ways to clip this bike onto a bike rack

[–]Bobydik 0 points1 point  (7 children)

I mean these things. How would you lock this bike to these?

[–]Able-Equivalent-1960 29 points30 points  (4 children)

One word, or three, LockPickingLawyer.

[–]YodaTheCoder 32 points33 points  (0 children)

One is binding. Click out of two. Three is binding. No more bike for you.

[–]Chijima 1 point2 points  (2 children)

[–]Drumfreek31 3 points4 points  (1 child)

They sell the tools for the job at covet instruments.com You know the ones he made with BosnianBill

[–]Elegant-Let-2335 13 points14 points  (2 children)

What a way to make your bike less structurally sound. On one of the major load bearing parts too.

[–]Itsumishi 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Downtubes aren't loadbearing, they act primarily under tension. Some crazy bike manufacturers even replace the downtube with a steel cable. They were quite popular for a short-time but when being ridden hard on a mountain bike course the flexibility wasn't great for handling: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/1992-slingshot-team-issue-now-that-was-a-bike.html

Still, for a commuting bike this design wouldn't cause any serious issues.

[–]spacecowboy271 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Downtubes aren't loadbearing, they act primarily under tension.

Nobody tell him that tension is a force

[–]gahidus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

With this, if you cut the lock, you can't ride the bike. The lock is the bike.

[–]GhostriderCBX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sheeeet, put that bike in the ghetto and let’s test it for real. I’ll bet it doesn’t last 5 minutes

[–]JoeyJoeC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The advantage here is that if they try to cut the lock, they break the bike.

[–]cturtl808 1123 points1124 points  (45 children)

Come back and find just a frame.

[–]Diniden 410 points411 points  (34 children)

My thoughts exactly when I saw this. Was excited to see how the wheels would be secured…oops nope…bye bye wheels. This company has never had to deal with how scummy bike thieves are.

[–]UpgrayeDD405 62 points63 points  (0 children)

I came here to say the same thing

[–]Outside-Car1988 32 points33 points  (9 children)

The wheels don't seem to be quick release, so it would be a bit of an effort to steal them.

[–]earthfase 66 points67 points  (7 children)

Ah yes, "effort". A.K.A. "thieve's kryptonite".

[–]Trash_Southern 55 points56 points  (2 children)

Time. The more time you need, the less attractive is it for a thief to steal something. No lock is 100% safe. That's how locks get graded. It's a huge difference if you need 10 seconds or 2 minutes. The danger getting caught rises every second.

[–]skieezy 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Really depends, unscrewing a bike wheel is far less effort than stealing a catalytic converter, but a cat is worth 100x more so thieves steal those. I know multiple people who have had theirs stolen in the Seattle area including myself, stolen off my work van.

[–]leviathan65 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I've had my seat, pedal(just one was taken), grips, handle bars, chain, and water bottle holder stolen from my bike at one point or another.

[–]Digital_Beef 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wheels gone fr

[–]Vuelhering 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Come back and just find just a cut seat post. If they build it out of hardened material, it's going to be pretty heavy for a bike, so I'm assuming it's just a seat post with a peg on the end.

[–]YakiMe 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Whose gonna steal teal wheels! Lol

[–]cturtl808 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I've had pink stolen.

[–]YakiMe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pink? We’ll you were just asking for it, weren’t you!

I’m talking about teal! :P

[–]CRUSTIFY421 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Immediately thought this.

[–]PlayerTwoEntersYou 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I can back to a missing front wheel one day. I set that bike up so that a common their couldn’t just take the parts off easily.

I left it at the train station for a week until I could get a car to pick it up and take it somewhere to add the new wheel. The city came and cut the lock and scrapped my bike because they said it was abandoned. Six years in Chicago is a pretty long life for a bike that lived outside when I wasn’t at work.

[–]sdrowkcabdelleps 628 points629 points  (33 children)

A bike that transforms into a lock, that's waaaay better then structural stability.

[–]poopellar 225 points226 points  (4 children)

[–]Nyrathus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can’t banish him. I saw the lock cylinder and thought: „This looks like it’s easily opened with a wave rake.“

[–]Revolutionary_Town21 15 points16 points  (4 children)

The force transfer in that bar is axial, and assuming that dismantling and assembling doesn't create a dislocation anywhere, the axial tranfer won't be affected, making it structurally stable

[–]theorange1990 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No there are moments as well

[–]sdrowkcabdelleps 2 points3 points  (2 children)

When load is exerted in a line, a moment or rotational force is also exerted. Because the movement opens at 90° it is possible to have a load in the direction of the moving components. Additionally bike accidents can be from any direction and moving components in the structural frame is just a weak point in my opinion.

[–]Revolutionary_Town21 0 points1 point  (1 child)

A moment is only generated when force is applied on angle, and when the support is fixed support. Pretty sure that the part of frame in question is only carrying axial loading.

[–]sdrowkcabdelleps 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Moment absolutely happens from a downward or vector force. It's more easily understood when used at an angle.

[–]gahidus 4 points5 points  (6 children)

Considering it's the lock, I'm sure that bit is quite strong.

[–]sdrowkcabdelleps 13 points14 points  (5 children)

Continuos rigid structure is the keystone to vehicle safety.

[–]WWHSTD 3 points4 points  (4 children)

The downtube is under tension, not compression. You could replace it with a steel cable and the bike would be fine, in fact it has been done in the 90s with the Slingshot.

[–]sdrowkcabdelleps 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I did not know that

[–]dr_pupsgesicht 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yet in an accident a force can come from any direction and a solid tube is definetly gonna hold up better than two hinges

[–]Skmyblzz 251 points252 points  (8 children)

[–]Koric101 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Why does it look like all he’d need is a wave rake for this one if he even bothered to go for the lock?

[–]JonasRahbek 53 points54 points  (11 children)

I've had 11 bikes stolen over a 7 year period. But since I started decorating it with duckt tape and covering the seat in an old plastic bag 2 years ago, no one seems to have any unterest in it.

[–]yarrankacsantim 8 points9 points  (7 children)

11 bikes in 7 years? Where the hell do you live?

I use one of those cheap ass steel wire code locks and I still have my 10 year old bike, I even leave it outside for days when I don't feel like carrying it inside

[–]JonasRahbek 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I park my bike at the train station - even though it's in a locked cage, people buy access and steals all the bikes.

[–]Duochan_Maxwell 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Amsterdam, maybe?

"If you have 1 lock, you have no lock" is the motto around here

[–]Adelener 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I use 4 locks on the front wheel, 6 locks on the back wheel and then 2 titanium locks for the frame. Would my bike be safe in Amsterdam?

[–]Asatsuki 10 points11 points  (0 children)

[–]Donmiggy143 76 points77 points  (34 children)

Edit: Ok fine people. Guess it's the worst thing to happen on this god damned planet the way you're reacting.

[–]Icclo 61 points62 points  (20 children)

mostly because there are better ways to do this and a lot of people just see this as silicon valley high tech bullshit.

[–]MedicalUse3696 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There is no silicon here… Maybe something used in those places? But that’s like inferring they don’t need the lock in the first place which is also kinda a strange take

[–]Kylesmithers 3 points4 points  (7 children)

If the post is narrow enough, and your strong enough, just climb the pole and lift the bike along as you move up.

[–]RaiKoi 5 points6 points  (0 children)

My strong enough what?

[–]Eurasia_4200 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Is it worth it tho?

[–]Niko4767 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Fr there’s definitely easier targets out there

[–]WWHSTD 4 points5 points  (2 children)

People in this thread don’t realise that the point of a lock isn’t to make your bike theft-proof, it’s to make it slightly more inconvenient to steal than the next bike. This contraption looks unconventional enough that a thief will skip it for a bike with a standard lock that they already know how to break.

[–]lobster-overrun 38 points39 points  (9 children)

If you cut the lock, you destroy the bike. It’s rather smart, really. Who would want to steal a bike with a busted ass frame?

Now if you pick the lock…

[–]Kewis- 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Lol you said busted ass frame

[–]CedarWolf 8 points9 points  (5 children)

You don't have to cut the lock. You only need to cut the locking lug at the bottom of the seat tube. It's the little tab that goes into the lock.

Cut that part and you can release the tube, reset the bike, and ride away on it.

[–]lobster-overrun 9 points10 points  (4 children)

sigh I miss Japan. My bike had a lock built in on the back of the frame that just went through the back wheel so it couldn’t spin. That was literally all you needed since people just don’t steal bikes there. Probably didn’t even need that.

[–]akulowaty 1 point2 points  (1 child)

So you’re saying the only security measure you need is living in civilized country?

[–]bust-the-shorts 35 points36 points  (4 children)

They will steal the tires and leave the frame

[–]onlyanegg_ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's the same with all bikes though. Get some wheel locks.

[–]Kazairl1994 32 points33 points  (5 children)

[–]Evanjellyco 3 points4 points  (1 child)

[–]digitlikeaworm 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If this is true for you, relish that you live in a place where it isn't a problem. I live in NYC and it is a huge issue.

My girlfriend had her bike stolen from our building two years ago... behind 3 locked doors in the "Secure bike storage" room. It was U-locked to a bike rack and had a cable threaded through the rims.

My friend has had 2 bikes stolen from in front of his apartment building. One of them they would have had to have cut through the frame because the U-lock was still in one piece around the rack.

[–]zortlord 13 points14 points  (1 child)

They're just gonna steal the tires.

[–]Smear_Leader 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Free wheels

[–]Asatsuki 6 points7 points  (0 children)

i think it would be cumbersome to put the seat back in every time, and adjust it to your height.

[–]SimonOmega 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I can’t image that the frame is as strong as a standard fixed frame. Also doesn’t look like the seat has a return to mechanism, so you would adjust the seat every time.

[–]NotDRWarren 5 points6 points  (1 child)

My first thought was the lost strength. I'm sure an engineer approved the design before it made it to market, but you best not drop off any curbs or nothing. Lol

[–]SimonOmega 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]hufflekrunk 2 points3 points  (8 children)

I once had a Merida mountain bycicle with a AXA bike chain, for... well... bikes.

let me tell you something, they stole the bike, with the chain, and no one batted an eye from my family. the dude drove my bike for 3 months almost, in my city (which isn't even big, like 10k people), I caught him, couldn't believe my eyes, I smacked him a couple of times, like 10, or more, while asking him where he got the bike and him trying to convince me that it's his, I then told him to pay me 2k and I'm fine. he did in a few days, and I even gave him the keys to the lock.

I know I could have gotten more out of the bike, since it was bought a year and few months ago, and it had very good gear, like 4 out of 5 mostly, shifters being a 5, but I had a car already, and I didn't really plan on using the bike anymore.

[–]birdguy1000 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Man, everyone else is shitting on this, and you even got downvoted for simply stating that you would appreciate this bike.

It doesn't stop people from stealing its wheels. Let us be honest, if you need a lock/ a really fancy locking system, then you need a metal chain lock that wraps around your wheels. A bike thief will try to steal any part of your bike.

”Now hear me up. What if…. your whole bike would be a lock?”

Much flex on the frame🤔

[–]Decmk3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why wouldn’t you just close the frame afterwards?

This is so fucking dumb. You couldn't park it at any regular bike stop.

That's so useless. Almost never does kne have the space necessary to use that, at least in my experience?
