Designer: Kevin Scott
There are many ways for securing bikes against theft, but this might be the most creative. The whole bike bends around a suitable post to become the loop through which the bike is secure.
It's an existing frame for the front and back section and the bendable section is made out of a series of glass-filled nylon section. Built into the seat post of the bike frame is a ratchet system that tensions the glass nylon tubes into a rigid frame for riding, or releases them for lamp post wrapping.
A possible added benefit of the design is that the bike appears like it can be 'folded' or bent for stowage in the home, office or on public transport.
