Bike users often have to keep an eye out for professional bike thieves who would simply cut their bike locks regardless of  the model or complexity. To address this theft, designers Feng Cheng-Tsung and Cheng Yu-Ting have created Pedal Lock, a unique bike lock system that essentially turns its own pedal into a wheel lock. Pedalock is specifically designed such that to steal the bike equipped with it would mean having to break the pedal, rendering it unusable for the thief. Check out pictures of the Pedalock in the gallery below:
