Bike lock makers will want to pay close attention to the progress of the Ronen Spector's SPiNe City Bike. The SPiNe City Bike is a conceptual bike designed with a built-in bike lock. The lock is designed so that no matter where you go, you will always have a bike lock handy.
The SPiNe City Bike gets its unique name from its included lock that looks like a spinal cord. The lock runs from the handlebars to the seat when not in use and is opened using a key. When you need to lock up your bike, simply find a pole or tree and wrap the spine around it. The spine connects to the right handlebar and locks into place. The SPiNe City Bike has been designed to destroy itself should a thief attempt to make off with your bike.
