A Dutch design company has created a Sheffield bike locking stand with an integral track pump. Neat and very clever.

The track pump thats foils thieves

Jeroen Bruls and Krijn Christiaansen of the HiMom Studio created the Sheffield+ stand for an art project in Ypenburg, a new-build neighbourhood in the Netherlands.

Eight pump-stands were placed strategic locations in Ypenburg.

"The goal of the project is to stimulate an interaction between neighbours, while pumping up the tyres of their bicycles," said Christiaansen.
