    Cool idea, but you can`t carry it around with you too easily. I`ve already got enough crap in my panniers when I ride to school. I guess you could just use it at home, but why not just bring your bike inside? Even when I was living in a tiny apartment I kept my bike in it.

    Also, mrpuddle, I don`t think bike-thieves are generally too concerned with public opinion, nor are they in cahoots with witches.

    It`s a good concept, I like it! All it needs is some sort of failsafe if the batteries go dead while it`s up there, and an actual lock to fasten the bike to it (so it can work without electricity and withstand poking and/or wind while up there).

    I wants!


    But Gerry has a point.

    The bike is just sitting in a half pipe holder. Anyone with a stick can knock the bike off of its perch.

    Yeah, it`d be sort of easy to steal. It`d also be much easier to steal a bike sitting on the ground. Bolt cutters are much easier to haul around than a ladder, and much less work than finding out whatever frequency they`re on.
