Great.. until bike crooks discover ladders!
I’m guessing that most bike locks can be taken off using some fast-filling skills or some very sharp Sawzall.
However, what if there was a way to make it very inconvenient for a thief to get to a bicycle because it was high up on a lamppost?
This is apparently the idea from Conrad, a German toy and model company who made a very interesting bike lock made from a motorized skateboard.
You will note the hexagonal shape seems to embrace the lamppost. I am assuming that lampposts are of a standard circumference. Anyway, it is then as easy as mounting the bike on the frame. Then, at a touch of a button on a remote control, the bike goes up like it is in an elevator.
No thief is going to be climbing a lamppost to steal a bike, it is just too much effort and way too public of a crime to get away with. Yes, the only person who will be climbing this pole to get to a bike is the owner with the busted remote control.
