Bicycle Lock / Lock

Bicycle Lock
Bicycle Lock

By combining the cable lock and brake cable together, Bicycle Lock is a device intended to provide maximum security. When a thief use a cable or bolt cutter to damage the lock, it also destroy the braking system of this bicycle. Therefore, the thief gets a bicycle without braking system. Unless the bike is fixed right away, riding a bike without braking system on the street will put himself in a dangerous situation. The hybrid function protects the bicycle from theft and discourages a thief with the proper precautions. While riding, the lock indeed is a redundant object. This design also solves the storage problem of a typical lock.
