Ive come up with an idea for a new form of cycle security point and system. My aim is to make cycling more attractive, safer for all, more secure and simply to boost the number of people cycling to work, school, the shops or just cycling for cyclings sake. Please take time out to read my idea and let me know what you think by posting a reply. Cheers.
Hi guys and girls, this is my first post on this board but i have read it quite a bit being an avid cyclist myself. Ive decided that having had bikes stolen and damaged when left in public places isnt fair and shouldnt happen...hence why I have decided to make designing and producing a new style, attractive yet functional and cost effective secure bike locking centre my final piece in my 3rd year.
Ive pretty much concluded on a design and product for my work. Its shaped like a wave with the base of the wave being on the ground and the crest arching over toward the ground a metre or so in front. The top surface will have a rail on it with a solar powered locking mechanism and heavy duty bolt that can go through the frame. The thief would be able to move this lock but only as far as the frame tubed...the lock will have a heavy duty neoprene sleeve that will protect the unit and the bike. The base of the wave shape will be constructed from crumbed rubber taken from old bicycle tyres to improve the life cycle of the products ans tie together the product and its function. What do you think about this?
