Flip up the wire clip to hold a spoke, and it prevents your bike from falling when leaned against something.
Spokebug engages with a flick of the finger, grabbing a spoke, which prevents the front wheel from moving, thus immobilizing the whole bike. This prevents the common problem of the handlebar twisting and then the bike falling. This allows you to lean it against almost anything. This is pretty handy in your home or workplace - just lean it against the wall. But the main reason I developed this was to hold your bike still and keep it from falling while you load cargo.

The device weighs less than a house key, so it's a great alternative to a kickstand for road and fixed-gear bikes.
You attach Spokebug to the front fork of your bike with the provided releasable zip-tie. It's designed to fit forks from 24mm wide to 38mm wide (that covers nearly all conventional bikes). And because the zip-tie is releasable, you can adjust it, or take it off and put it on another bike.
The laser-sintering process gives the stainless steel a handsome brassy tone and the tempered stainless steel wire clip is hand-formed. The entire thing is made in the USA.
Cool Material says:There are some products that are so ingenious and deceptively simple that you inevitably end up having a “why didn’t I think of that?” moment. Spokebug is one of those products.
