A little light security...

A little light security…

Gosh I love objects with a multi-purpose! Some things in our lives really should be multi-purpose eg. the TV, it really is just a screen with speakers. Why can’t it be a microwave oven as well? or a wireless router for my internet? It just sits there taking up space, and taking my attention. But I digress and ask you to cast your eyes on this multi-purpose bicycle lock / bicycle light by designer Adrian Weidmann, he calls it “Loc+”… uh, ok.

It’s simple, fun and inviting, welcoming you with a well-designed classic look and a natural heads-up riding position. Auto shifting lets you ride at your own speed. When you go faster, the bike upshifts smoothly to the next two gears. When you slow down the bike automatically downshifts, very much like the automatic shifting of your car.
