Seatylock Combined Bicycle Seat and Lock

ca_red_3

People are always trying to find ways to combine a bicycle lock into something else, whether it be hidden in the seatpost, incorporated into the frame, or in the case of the Seatylock, into the rails of the saddle. Using a quick release bracket compatible with most seatpost heads, the $85 Seatylock saddle easily clicks on the off the bike (going back to the same position when replaced) and hides a 3 ft articulated lock underneath. While it eliminated having to wear or carry your lock in a bag, it’s up for debate if the Seatylock is actually any less conspicuous on the bike than a more run of the mill lock bracket, though it does come with the added benefit of preventing saddle theft. The design is available in two different widths in a number of colors, though I can’t be the only one that would like to see an add-your-own saddle version, particular as people can be about their saddle choices.

    Saddles get old, don’t they? So, what when this does? We have to change the lock too?
