Handle lock cycle / bicycle

Handle lock cycle

This design presents a cycle with a combination locking system in its handle, which enhances the cycle's security; the locking system is simple and convenient. In traditional system we have to carry keys in our pockets, kneel down or bend to lock the cycle, but this lock is free from such hassles, because it is front of you and the key is in your mind. You can lock the cycle in your normal posture like, standing or while sitting on its seat. In order to lock your cycle, just tilt its handle a bit like we do with our motorbikes and change the combination of lock. The handle will not move unless it is unlocked.
