Handlebar Bike Lock

Well lookie-here, isn’t this clever? Handlebars is a bike lock built into… you guessed it, the handlebars. Push the handlebars down and pull out to engage the steel cable wires. Although clever, the system doesn’t address the theft of individual bike components when not properly locked down, e.g. wheels.

    The bike also defies the laws of physics! Awesome

  • And what about the brakes and its cables?

    • Taffer says:

      This bike has no brakes, can't shift gears, and after you lock it up with only the handlebars soon won't have wheels.

      • marco iannicelli says:

        Actually the rendering is showing a bike with gears. The handle-bar-lock could only work with a fixie or a brakeless bike with single speed. Purists would never accept this construction within the handle bars. They are suppossed to be as stiff as a boner on viagra!

    How do you unlock it?

    can i buy it from u??

    My front teeth are already hurting when I think about one of these handles coming loose when driving over a bumpy road.

    It’s exactly the same the desingn as one got awarded from Sparks design competition last year. Interesting…

  • adam says:

    the one got awarded doesn't affect any brake system and wires. more research needed.

  • lola says:

    i think this is the kind of bike that you use the wheel pedal to accelerate or slow down, not the handlebars. if the theft tried to break the lock the bike has no handlebars to ride with. smart…..

    @lola
    from the looks of it you can use a stick / metal rod to bike away.

    also the simplicity of manufacture, while a good thing, it would make it cheap to replace just the handlebars. replacement would probably go for around $0.50 in china, $5-10 in north america. pretty cheap for a new “free” bike

    Too bad cable locks don't actually work, not even for huffy.

  • jjbk says:

    I wouldn’t trust a designer who doesn’t know on which side of a bike the chain goes

  • Yang says:

    You sill need to push 1 button and pull one handle, and do it again on the other side. Other than that, it's not bad.

  • FeelXtra says:

    Well guys, i ve saw thieves steal only the wheels…. so do you think they care about if the bike has a handlebar or not?
    I mean, pull out the boltcutters “fix” the lock and take the bike…

  • D3SP3RAD0 says:

    even better just take the stem off the forks and you have nearly a whole bike you can put proper handlebars on
    also a better lock

  • Cain says:

    I could cut through that cable with bolt cutters in two seconds flat! The best idea is the thick U shaped bike locks that lock on the frame, almost impossible to cut with bolt cutters. Did we really need a worst solution to bike theft? Was this invented by a thief?!..lol

  • noone says:

    probably lol hmmm lets make a desine to get more bikes

  • Kldtr says:

    You guys need to stop posting so many “concepts”. Try this: If it's not ACTUALLY AVAILABLE, don't post it.
    This bike lock handlebar thing is just silly in sooooo many ways and so poorly developed.

  • Dmc says:

    How can this work with break and gear shifters attached?

  • hahahaha says:

    the chain and gears are on the wrong side!

  • Yeddie says:

    There are bikes with the gear shifts on the frames, most old bikes had this style of gear shifts. Breaks would be the only issue.
