Stretch Pedal / Bicycle Pedal

Stretch Pedal
Stretch Pedal

Have you ever been in a situation that when you are biking, your legs were hit by the pedal? This Stretch Pedal can solve this problem perfectly. Besides that, it could also work as a lock.
With a sliding system, we can reduce the length of the pedal while walking with the bike. If we keep reducing the length of the pedal from the outside of it, the other side will slide into the spokes of the back wheel and lock the bike as a U-lock. It is an elegant solution solving two big problems at the same time.
