Deter Bike Thieves With Inventive Pedal Lock That Doubles as a Wheel Clamp

Urban bike users will know the ins and outs of preventing beloved bikes from being stolen, and it generally goes that the bigger and bulkier the bike lock , the more secure the bike. But the new, lightweight Pedal Lock  offers a different form of theft deterrence. The brain child of designers Cheng-Tsung Feng  and Yu-Ting Cheng , this lock also functions as a pedal. So, in order to be broken into, the thief has to break the pedal, which ultimately leaves the bike un-rideable for a quick getaway.
Not only do the pedal locks act as a deterrent, but they are light and easy to transport – simply detach them to clamp them around a bike wheel.
If you are a cyclist fed up with riding around with an uncomfortable chain wrapped around you, this could be the perfect alternative for you.
