    Skunklock. Apparently has to be cut with an angler grinder to release foul chemicals.

    "Our formula irreversibly ruins the clothes worn by the thief or any of the protection they may be wearing,"

    So does a bike with cloth or leather handlebar tape or thin gumwall over cotton tires end up stinking, too?

    Probably. This is one of those things that sounds Awesome for five seconds until you realize all of the ways it could go wrong. I would be miffed, to say the least, if my panniers ended up smelling like skunk funk.

    As a concept I thought it was pretty funny though.

    Well the idea is good but I dont think many thieves use an angle grinder outside. I think more when they steal the bike, bring it somewhere else and then grind through the lock. So it would basically work, when you lock your bike to something outside (duh....) Cutters are more widely used so there it would do the job. And there are are many other ways to destroy a lock, drilling out the key cylinder probably would not trigger the skunk function. Not to mention a skilled lock picker....

    It looks like it might be great in the lab. Out on the road with dirt and stuff, not so much. Hell of a wheelbase though.

    ^ Ooops! He was lucky but half cyclist fault imo, riding up the inside of traffic not on a lane. Might be the norm for London, don't know, only been there once.

    Good spot Dutchman. I saw that on the news a few weeks back but forgot to post it. Like you say, hopefully it will spread.

    Very good statement in the last sentence:

    "But, during the course of the study, regular cycling cut the risk of death from any cause by 41%, the incidence of cancer by 45% and heart disease by 46%.

    The cyclists clocked an average of 30 miles per week, but the further they cycled the greater the health boon."

    30 miles per week is all you need? Some of the guys here might live forever...

    I do 30 miles in 1-1/2 round trips. But I have other bad habits that will keep me from living forever. .

    It didn't list how many died from pickup trucks and buses.
