Bike locks climbs streetlights

This is too cool and it looks like a perfect project to do at Techshop. A portable gizmo that wraps around a streetlamp post hoists your bike beyond the reach of bike thieves.

A German hobby supply company created this bike lock for a TV commercial, and (naturally) tell you the parts you can buy from them to make this cool gizmo.

Here’s a kind of “behind the scenes” video showing the designers creating this bike streetlamp hoist lock.
