Kevin Scott has designed a unique bike that dismisses the need for traditional locks by wrapping the frame around a pole, letting you use a small u-lock to connect the wheels and frame.
The bike uses a ratchet system (shown behind the break) to pull the frame tight when riding and loosen it to fold around something for easy locking. Besides making parking easier, it also makes storage in tight spaces (cubicle, flat, etc.) a bit easier. It’s on display now at the Young Designers 2 show in Islington, north London.
