Looks like the kickstand touches the ground a mere 2" from the wheel; not particularly stable.
Also, its a combo dial lock; located at ground level. Seems like itd be cumbersome to have to bend over and fiddle with that.
kinda defeats the project statement of being simpler/faster than say, a u-lock and key around the seattube(like 3 secs to lock up this way)
So yeah, you get a kickstand and a wheel lock in one package so both can work poorly now. yay
Though I suppose, given the market this kinda thing is going to cater to; I cant complain about attractive women having to bend way over when they un/lock their bike....
P.S. when the kickstand is in the Up position, what keeps it from sliding down into your spokes when riding? I guess the combo lock has to be locked up in both positions? inconvenient
I wonder how long till some inattentive rider forgets to spin the dials, then it falls into the wheel on the road at speed....
