You heard it right. The new 200-gram ABUS Sportflex lock mounts right under your existing water bottle cage and is there when you need it. Having this lightweight lock with you, and out of the way on your mountain, gravel, or road bike makes it easy to stop for tacos and beers after the ride or your favorite coffee joint before.

While not suggested for long-term or overnight bike parking, the Sportflex is intended for a quick stop and lock that should deter the lazy bike thief looking for an easy bike to swipe…damn bike thieves. #whywecanthavenicethings

Abus integrated bike lock under bottle cage

Here’s some more info straight from ABUS:

“With the SportFlex, ABUS offers security for performance-oriented riders. Never forget your lock again. The 3-in-1 lock is firmly mounted on the bike between the frame and bottle holder and makes short stops here and there possible without worry.

The SportFlex unfolds a flexible 2.4 mm cable with a length of 90 cm. This makes it perfect for briefly securing your bike to available objects such as bike racks or street lights. The extendible cable lock is compatible with all carbon frames. It can be easily mounted under the bottle holder so that it hardly takes up any space. With its weight of 200 g, it is also particularly light and thus suitable for sporty use. Thanks to its practical opening code locking mechanism, there is no need for you to carry a key. Knowing that your high-quality bicycle is protected from opportunistic thieves, you can be more relaxed when making short stops. Alternatively, you can also secure your helmet or other accessories with the cable”.

After the Lock Picking Lawyer has his say, I’ll consider it.

Cool idea. I am worried though that the lock, by most appearances, can be compromised with a butter knife.

For it’s intended purpose of preventing quick snatch thefts, it’s pretty cool. Might grab one for the townie. Definitely wouldn’t let my MTB completely out of my sight with this for more than a few seconds though…

I had one of those pit stop style of cable locks and when the tumbler got stuck, it took all of 15 seconds to cut through all the strands with basic wire snips. This one probably take all of 5 seconds.
