More than 2 bikes are stolen every hour in London. This young designer, Kevin Scott, hopes to change that. This ‘bendable’ bike can literally wrap around a light pole thanks to the ratchet system built into the frame. By winding the crank the bike’s inner frame tenses, while unwinding it loosens the frame making it bend.
While a lock isn’t built into the frame, the intention is to enable riders to lock both wheels and frame with a single lock. Kevin’s design is on display at the New Designers show at the Business Design Centre in Islington, north London.
