Lock in the heart / lock

Lock in the heart

Here is a new lock. It is a coded lock fixed on the head tube of the bike, which helps effectively avoid the lock being pried open or cut off.
It works as follows: After parking the bike, you just turn the handlebar, ensuring that the front wheel and the rear one are in a different line. Then lock the head tube with the coded lock and it can’t rotate. At this point if you push the bike, it can only run in place instead of moving forward.
