Theft deterrent gear lock
I currently ride a 2022 Specialized Aethos equipped with a SRAM Rival gear set. I’m proposing an update to create a software feature that allows you to lock the drivetrain in whatever your current gear is.
At times I’ll stop on a ride to use a restroom or drop into a store. And rather than carry a lock I generally put the bike in the highest gear so that if anyone tried to ride away, they would have a difficult time gaining speed. It would be great if the shifter programming allowed me to lock it into whichever gear I’m currently in. The option could be controlled by the shifters, or perhaps by the button on the derailleur via a simple button press code. Whatever would be easiest to program. Bike thefts are out of control and I believe you could help reduce the number of thefts with this feature.
