Now cyclists don’t have to worry about their bicycles being stolen. Three young inventors from Chile came up with a brilliant solution that will prevent crooks from taking bicycles.

Andrés Roi Eggers, 23, Cristóbal Cabello, 22, and Juan José Monsalve, 24, were once victimized by bicycle thieves. This inspired them to drop out of college and design a bike that will actually break if anyone takes it.

The world’s first unstealable bike would actually deter thieves as the bike itself becomes the lock.

Crooks will certainly have a difficult time getting this two-wheeler as part of the frame splits in half and forms a lock when connected to a lamp post.

The best thing about this bicycle is that it would only take you 10 seconds to assemble the lock.

The trio were given $100,000 by the government to develop the one-of-a-kind bicycle known as Yerka. Their first model was sold using crowdfunding web site Indiegogo.

Their website says:

“We went back to the roots of security and made a paradigm shift: Make a lock out of the bike. Now a thief would have to cut through the main structure to take the bicycle, defeating the purpose.”
