The BluLocks is a Dutch bicycle with built-in lock -- while this isn't an entirely new idea, what's unique about this particular offering is that it brings together an externally located chain with a secure locking mechanism situated inside the seat tube.

This innovative bike is currently the subject of an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. A pledge of $399 will get you set up with one of these once they are ready for mass production.

Ultimately, the BluLocks bicycle with built-in lock is designed to discourage bike thieves by forcing them to wreck the bike completely if they're intent on stealing it, a deterrent to bike thieves who either want to use the bike for themselves or want to re-sell it.
