About

CLINK™ is the first bicycle lock with a concealed integrated tool kit! Simplify your ride and your life. No longer a need to carry a bag full of tools or a bulky multi tool around. It's your all-in-one for security and repairs. 

INSPIRATION

Cyclist often have the dilemma of how much to carry on a ride. Whether to just bring a lock. Whether to take some tools too. Should I bring a bag and all my tools? Then inevitably when you don't bring tools you discover something has gotten loose on your ride.

During years obsessing over bikes I have become very familiar with the bicycle locks and multi-tools on the market. I saw a need to combine the two and had never seen anything like I had in mind out there before. I set out to make something I wanted to use for my everyday riding.

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter and will bring on many new experiences. With all the planning to get this far many of the challenges have already been overcome and risks minimized.

I am working with manufacturers with lots of experience in the cycling industry. Brands I trust in have worked with them to produce quality and innovative products. There will be samples made from the tooling being produced to ensure the quality, precision, and tolerance are all correct before manufacturing.

The biggest risk is a delay in the production schedule. If we get the sample made from the initial tooling and the tolerances are off in some way we may loose time in correcting it. In the case of any delays I will be transparent with Backers to the issue or delays in the timeline. I want Backers to feel informed and to have a positive experience.
