This seat is also a bike lock. The Seatylock is designed to secure your bike and seat. It unfolds into a 3-foot lock in seconds. Lift the lever. Pull the lock apart. Unlock the links. We tried the Seatylock ourselves.
Alyssa Pagano: “Hey, I’m Alyssa Pagano. I’m a regular biker and today I’m going to test out the Seatylock. I’m going to see how easy it is to install, what it’s like to lock it up, and how comfortable it is to ride.”
“First I’m going to take off my seat that I have right now.”
The lock is made of hardened steel. It’s incredibly strong. It can withstand cutting, sawing, drilling, and smashing.
Pagano: “So I had a chance to ride the bike around with the Seatylock on. I locked it to a pole, I locked it to a bike rack. I cruised around the city a little bit and the seat was pretty comfortable. So my first impression of installing the seat was pretty much just like installing any other seat. It kind of made the bike feel a little top heavy when I was pushing it, but then when I was on the bike it felt totally normal. The lock was a little bit cumbersome, but generally, you just pop it off, wrap it around the pole, like it up. But if you looking for something that doubles as a seat and a lock, and you want to minimise the number of things you’re carrying with you, then I think it’s great.”
