A Bike That Locks Itself

This bike could possibly be the best bike ever made easily and it has so many features that will have you wanting it more and more. The bike is called the Denny which I think is a pretty weird name but so is mongoose and all the other bike names. The Denny has a few key features that make it great the bike has blinkers for when you are turning, brake lights for when you slam on the brakes, a platform that comes with a net to put over your objects so they don’t fall out, and best of all a handlebar that comes apart and turns into a bike lock. The bike also has smartphone-enabled haptics to give riders directions when riding. Since there is no price displayed for this bike I will assume it is expensive and it looks expensive which can be a bad thing down the road if your not looking to get your bike stolen.

This bike is pretty trendy and I believe you will see other bike companies start to make bikes more like this in future production. The one concern I would have with the bike is the price of the bike if the bike is too high priced people won’t want to buy them and the look of the bike seems expensive. I think the design aspect of the bike is really cool the bike looks spectacular and I would have liked to participate in designing this bike. The design is slick and modern which with features I have never seen on a bike before.
