What do you think? Would it weaken the seat post? (I'm not sure, may be the idea is to make a special one for this thingy.)

I wouldn't consider it because the cable seems to be really flexible if at least 20ft is stuffed into a seat post. To me flexibility means easy to cut; I would still stick with my trust u-locks.

Must make things tough always having to find another bike to lock next to, no?

My theory on bike locks is "Competitive Deterrence" it just comes down to whose bike is easier to steal, yours or the one next to it.  I do the double ULock and never had a problem

Looks like it's time to start collecting my prototypes...

Or maybe I should just throw in with this project.

Yeah, I saw this yesterday.  Lousy idea. Lousy lock. I decided if this gets funded, I'm going to start a promotion on Kickstarter to sell laminated dog poop.

This InterLock seat post bike lock will likely be a hit with the rider who is more concerned about fashion versus function. 

I wonder how that TiGr bike lock product is doing? It was also funded through Kickstarter a few years back. It's a fairly unique design for a lightweight, less-cumbersome, yet strong bike lock.

My mountain bike was stolen from a Metra station last year. Since then, I no longer carry a bike lock... I just carry my bike onto the train since it's a folding bike. Then when I get to my office, I don't need to lock it up, it just gets stashed under my desk. 

I don't know how well or otherwise TiGr is doing, but I have seen, so far, only one person using it.

I don't think it's really meant to be a primary lock. I like concept as a secondary lock to secure the rear wheel. I use a u-lock for my primary and carry a cable for the secondary after my rear wheel was stolen in broad daylight outside union station. The cable is obviously easy to get through, but it is definitely a deterrent. I think this is a pretty cool product. 

I would actually love this as a secondary lock. I already use a cable lock to secure the rear wheel and the saddle. (I've had a saddle stolen). It's annoying finding a place to put the lock when not in use and it takes time to thread it all together.

Good points on using the InterLock as a secondary lock for the rear wheel and seat. 

It looks like a great idea outside the city, but for college students and city dwellers this thing would be cut through in seconds

I use two locks in Chicago so I would definitely use this as my second lock so I only have to carry one. 

I really want to get one of these locks, but I'm not sure about the length. I wish they made one in a mini format, I think it would be easier to carry around, I don't like the idea of wrapping it around my head tube and top tube.
