The students, who have named their idea ‘Yerka Project’, use a surprisingly simple way of securing the bike: by using its own frame.
Yerka Project’s middle pipe divides and attaches to the removable seat, forming a lock – all that it then needs is to be fastened to a post .
The prototype locks with a key, though the team are working on variations of the bike that can lock with combinations.
The team came up with their idea after one of them was targeted twice by bike thieves.
