Invention Thursday




At the BART station the other day, there was a scary weirdo looking at my bike with great interest. 
I thought he might be thinking about stealing it. He didn't, but it made me think of a great invention to stop bike theft.
This invention is a seemingly normal looking and working bicycle, but when stolen you can push a remote button to make the bike fall to pieces.
The thief would crash to the ground in a painful way, and it enables you to tell them to stop, and get their life together.

"Stop, and get your life together."

The anti-theft bike is a one time use, you wouldn't be able to put the bike the back together, but you can hold your head up high as the victor, and not the victim.

Retails for only $12...... + $1600 for shipping.
Or an easy $1 a day for 1,612 days! Who can't afford a buck a day!

Over here in Amsterdam we have the 'Giant Downtown', a bike that has a special kind of handlebar that doubles as a lock. If you cut the lock -with a pair of pliers as they do here- the bike becomes useless. It's a similar system and won design awards but I'm pretty sure they wish they too thought of a way to cause pain to the thieves...

Funny, as always! What's with one of your pant legs rolled up? Is this a new style I'm missing out on?

Erik, are you bringing back the one pant leg fold-up style craze from the 90's? If so, you're the only one who could pull it off! And this idea is genius Mr. Benson!
