FrameBlock - Theft-proof bike by MilanoBike

FrameBlock is the first bicycle with the lock directly integrated into the frame. Prevent bike theft, with Italian style!

FrameBlock, which is patented by MilanoBike, uses steel cables and a burglarproof lock which are integrated into the design of the bike; the cables extend from the seatstays to a locking mechanism, both shown in red in the Kickstarter edition bike. Each FrameBlock also has a digital code on the frame which can be scanned to determine ownership.

MilanoBike has started a Kickstarter page to get the production of the bikes started. More photos, videos pricing, shipping (available worldwide), and details can be found on Kickstarter here.
