This is a pretty cool concept. I wonder what the kryptonite version would be. Maybe a python, hehe.

So cute! Now they need a hefty jungle vine version for the city.

Adorable!! I wonder if it is durable, though.

Simply fantastic!

super fun, but it's pretty obvi that the designer isn't concerned about bike theft - that cord could be cut in a nanosecond - not to mention, you NEVER just loop through your wheel, no matter what type of lock you have! Yikes!

Cute, but impractical in the bike-theft capital of Montreal (I'm on bike #3). I do love the concept, and second the python/jungle vine ideas!

Sandra DK said...

I would worry if somebody would try and still my bike lock ...not the bike ha ha ha :P
Oh, did you decide on your holiday-destination yet? Excited to hear! :) Have a great weekend!

This looks wicked!

But yes, I to, would be incredibly paranoid about bike theft if I owned it!.

...I'm already paranoid with a heavy duty lock on my bike!

Samantha said...

Oooh - I like that. x

There is a cool little online shop over here in England - based in the OXO Tower - London called Suck UK and they have two little products that remind me of this!

This cute little bookmark - http://www.suck.uk.com/products/sproutbookmark/?category=new

And these little cute cable ties -

This is the best ever!

Pretty. In San Francisco your bike would be gone in 60 seconds, though. There are bike theft rings here (I know, right?) that are so organized. You have to have your bike on total lockdown at all times.

That is adorable!

ack, I think this lock wouldn't work in any city sadly. I live in DC, and it would be stolen in seconds. :(

Love it! ;-)

Amanda said...

Incredibly rad but it also looks incredibly easy to slice through :( Total win for the folks living in an area where professional bike thieves aren't an issue.

I know I'm just reiterating what everyone else said, but - THIS IS SO COOL!

I actually saw a couple similar locks on bikes in Amsterdam, where people usually use very hefty chain locks. BUT, virtually every bike also has an AXA rear wheel lock, which immobilizes the bike (though it can still be lifted and carried away.) For total security you should have the rear wheel lock and a giant chain lock. But, if you're going to use a flimsy but cute lock like this one, at least do so with a rear wheel lock.

I think there are a lot of things like this which are cute, but are not for true bikers and certainly not for city bikers. If you live in the suburbs and keep your bike in the garage, and you just ride recreationally or lock your bike up for brief periods of time in a very safe area, these are cute. But to me they scream, "non-biker phony who wants to look cute and jump on the bike craze!"

The Toyota Previa's spaceship-like interior is roomy and comfortable. Fit and finish is very good. Driver's place is comfortable; great visibility. The third-row bench seat splits in half and folds up easily against the sidewalls making a lot of space for cargo.

That's a really nice bike lock.

Would love to see would be thieves try to move the bike and then realizing it isn't going anywhere ( a candid camera idea :D ).
