PSYCLE – an anti-theft bicycle frame that discourages every thief who is about to steal a bike with the help of a psychological approach. But How?
A new security mechanism inside the top tube, the supporting part of the frame, replaces every bike lock.
With an unfolded top tube the bike can be moved and secured to any suitable object. Only the owner is able to put the bike back in a roadworthy position by using a key.
Willing to steal the bike, the potential thief would unfit the bike by destroying the frame. Therefore, the thief will realize that he destroys the bike by stealing it.
Theft is senseless !
