In my daily biking life I see a lot of locks, but rarely is one "new" in terms of style. There may be advancements in materials or in the internal workings of locks, but chain, cable, and U-locks are in abundance and never seem to change much in terms of appearance. However, when in NYC recently I spotted this lock -
And it had some information on it which allowed me to Google it.
After some searching the lock appears to be the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign. They now have a full-blown website, complete with anti-theft video. The lock conveniently secures to a top tube, but I am curious about this because my top tube is not straight. I have a feeling it would still work, but it would take some testing.
Anyone with thoughts on or experience with this lock is welcome to comment. There might be a slight delay in the approval of comments because I am traveling and have sparse access to the Interweb. We have been getting a ton of SPAM comments lately so I have had to move to the approval model.
