Bendy Bike Doubles up as its own Bike Lock

If you cycle you probably want to avoid carrying any extra weight – chances are if you commute by pedal power you’re already carrying a change of clothing so a decent heavy chain and lock would only add to what you have to lug around.

What if your bike could fold around a post and lock against itself?

Well, this is what designer Kevin Scott has thought up.

This revolutionary folding bicycle actually wraps around a lamp post so it can be locked-up safely – without the need for a lock or chain.

The De Montfort University graduate used a ratchet system built into the frame of the bike to allow it to wrap around a pole, enabling the lock to be wrapped through both wheels and the frame.

I say genius – what say you?
