Kick Stand And Lock!

Yup, that’s what you’ve literally got to do to lock your cycle, when you are using the Quick Stand & Lock, locking system. The locking system is integrated into the stand in such a way that all you need to do is park your bike, and as you kick it’s stand down, the number lock just gets into action. The clever thing even cuts you the step of actually chining up your cycle. Pretty clever if you ask me!

    While this lock might prevent someone from riding off on the bicycle, what’s to stop a thief from simply carrying the bicycle away or loading it into a vehicle?

  • Good idea! Like Jimmie above says, what’s to keep me from picking up your bike and walking away with it? Might consider targeting the motorcycle market.

  • tom says:

    pick-up the bike, remove the wheel, turn the stand, enjoy. Less than 5min.

    Useless.

    Wait for the first joker that overtakes you and kicks your lock…

    This will also not stay upright, not enough reach… The slightest wind will make it fall over.

    Agree !

  • How on earth will the support rod spring back up to its upper position? Do you have to pull it up by hand? What will hold it there while you’re riding (you definitely NOT want that rod to accidentally slide down, e.g. at a bump in the road, during a ride)? How many people would love the idea of squatting down to street level while fiddling to unlock their bike?
    Combining two functions into one can sometimes be a brilliant idea, but sometimes it just reduces flexibility. Apart from the obvious balance problem and the dubious theft prohibition already stated, I’d still prefer a separate (reliable) locking function and a separate (reliable) side stand, but maybe I’m just too narrow minded. 🙂

    Clever design! Brilliant forward thinking. Great photos and illustration presentation too!

    Comments about how this lock can be easily bypassed and therefore ineffective (i.e., carrying the bike away, removing the wheel, etc.) may be true in, for example, some parts of the U.S., where thieves will stoop that low, but in other parts of the world, including in most Asian countries, deterrence is usually all that is needed to prevent theft. In Asia, therefore, this lock probably achieves the intended purpose – convenience and enough of a deterrence effect that it will actually prevent theft.

    To be successful, though, I do agree that the inventors/owners of this lock should address concerns about safety and about stability when the stand is down.

    plz start using this… would make me happ!

  • The trouble with concepts like this, they, as in this case do not address the mechanical properties and function thoroughly; nor do they show any understanding of manufacturing process.

    The strength of the mounting along with the leverage would result in a very short life-cycle as metal fatigue would break the unit rather quickly.

    The curved rod would need a more complex slide/bearing arrangement than a straight rod; this would increase cost and thus less likely to commercialized.

    I would rather see concepts that show good engineering and understanding of process and commercial awareness.

    This could be developed into a bona fide product, but the aesthetic often becomes diluted through the engineering processes.

    If designers put more thought into the engineering, manufacturing and business aspects, the design would be preserved.

    I feel this type of shortsightedness is damaging the design profession,

  • VEELAJOVI says:

    if the rim have more than 24 spokes,the system would be a nonsence when using it

  • Chris B says:

    This is a high visibility, low risk area option. Many cyclists have a light lock they use for quick stops. It gives you just enough time to catch the guy and make sure he limps home.

  • And if this fashionable style comes at an affordable rate then that acts just like a cherry on the cake.

    While most dresses are basic silk, satin, or tulle, some are nestled underneath an overlay of cotton lace to create
    a more textured appearance. Longer neck, long neck, high collar lining, there is a Painting in the United States.
