Live in a high-crime area? You need the Biomega Boston theft-proof bike

Travel Gadgets

As a child, I had various bikes stolen, but that was probably my own fault for leaving them unlocked in the street. But for some people, even a solid cycle lock is insufficient for protecting your bike in higher-crime areas. Which is where the Biomega Boston comes in.

The Biomega Boston model turns the entire frame of the bike into the lock – break the lock and the bike becomes unrideable. Obviously, someone can steal bits of your bike or break it attempting to steal it. So while the thought is there, maybe a bit more thought needs to go into the practicality of it.

But in the meantime, this folding ‘street’ bike can be yours for $1158, which is around £600.
