Foldable Bike Needs No Lock

This new design makes it easier to secure a bicycle on busy streets.

Industrial Design student Kevin Scott has developed a bike that can bend to lock onto itself. It looks and works like any normal bicycle but one push of a lever and the flexible bike folds around and locks without needing any outside lock or chain. Scott used a ratchet system that is built into the bike’s frame enabling it to be wrapped around a pole through both wheels and the frame. Besides doing away with needing a lock, the flexible frame also allows the bike to be stored in small spaces, solving the problem of looking for a parking space on busy streets.
