Never carry around your bike seat again

by Mike

The Locksit probably won’t appeal to the occasional biker, the one who just likes to take a quick ride around the neighborhood, but for the person who relies on their bike every single day to get to and from work, this gadget will be a nice addition to their lives. Just think, you’ll never have to carry around your bike seat again.

The Locksit is a replacement seat for your bike with a little something extra built in, a U-bar. With the push of a pin, the seat will actually bend backwards, toward the back wheel. Once pushed back, the U-bar from the seat can be secured around the back wheel. That way, you’ve secured both your back wheel and your seat, combo points! You’ve probably realized that the rest of your bike is left unguarded, and that’s no good, so you’ll still need to carry around a generic lock with you, but hey, you won’t have to carry your seat anymore! That’s definitely a plus. This is all 100% worthless though if the seat isn’t comfortable. I’m willing to carry around my bike seat if it’s super comfortable rather than being sore all day from my 2 mile commute on a rock with a U-bar. Wouldn’t you?

As of right now, the Locksit is a concept design by Jack Godfrey Wood. Hopefully someone like TREK or Schwinn (that’s all the bike companies I know) will pick this up and bring it to market. If it’s affordable enough, and works as said, chances are anyone who commutes to work with a bike will pick one up.

Gone are the days when all u had to lock was your frame. Now u have to carry your seat with you and possibly your front wheel unless u lock that to. I think it would be easy to just convert from quick release back to normal bolts if you are going to goto this much trouble.
