Handlebar lock seeks international distribution

The FreeLock is a handlebar stem with a difference: it can be locked into position with a key. Unlock it and the handlebar swivels freely, making the bike unrideable, a deterrent to a spur-of-the-moment thief, and it's a space-saver, too. Cycleurope has exclusivity for Scandanavia, Raleigh may spec it on its 2005 city bikes but the rest of the world is up for grabs.

The 100g FreeLock has been developed by Oredon, a French company. Oredon is staffed by eight people, four of them ex of EGS, the defunct gear syncronisation concept.

Jeffrey Begue, VP of sales, pic below, was displaying the Freelock on a Puch bike on the Cycleurope stand at Eurobike.

The design could be licensed to Asian stem manufacturers, said Begue. Ordeon is working on other bike-specific accessories and products, including electric bikes.

Production models of the Freelock will be available in April 2004.
