bicycle lock / bike lock

bicycle lock

The purpose of locking the bicycle frame to a pole with bicycle lock is to prevent bike theft. However, normal bike lock does not have anti-theft guarantees since the thief still can destroy the lock and take the bicycle away. The key concept of novel lock is to combine bike lock and the brake wire together, thus, the brake wire becomes a part of the anti-theft lock. The user can use this novel lock to lock his bicycle to a pole. Once the thief uses tools to cut the lock, he also destroys the braking system of this bike. A bicycle without a braking system is useless and uncontrollable after the bike has been thieved.
