A Humble Suggestion
Maybe one of these for the Craft Pizza folks:
- Chilean students of engineering have designed a prototype bicycle that ‘cannot be stolen.’
The Yerka, which is designed by Cristobal Cabello, Andres Roi Eggers and Juan Jose Monsalve during a college engineering class, can be locked by some of its own parts.
The students came up with the idea after Roi’s bike was stolen.
The Chilean innovators have benefitted from techniques used in two other bicycles namely “Seatylock” and “Denny,” whose saddle and detachable handlebars are respectively used for locking them up.
For Yerka to get locked, its lower frame opens up into two arms that are then connected to the seat post and locked to a post.
Thieves would have to destroy the whole bike to get it unlocked, said Cabello, adding, “That’s why our motto is ‘a bike that gets stolen is no longer a bike.’ What we have here is truly an unstealable bike.”
This might test the ingenuity of bike thieves.
