Biomega is trying to solve the urban problem of stolen bicycles with their Boston model, which turns the entire frame of the bike into the lock; break the lock and the bike becomes unrideable. But while we applaud their efforts, we don't think they're addressing the entire problem: a quick walk around Manhattan will reveal any number of bicycle frames securely shackled to scaffolding--but missing their seats, handlebars, wheels, and/or pedals, meaning the thief got the pieces they needed and now the bike is unrideable to you.
The problem of protecting all the parts of an object that must be a) mass-manufactured, b) able to be disassembled, and c) light enough to carry is a tricky one for sure. So...any of you got ideas?
