Commuters and cyclists have a common worry for their bicycle getting stolen and stripped for parts, but Cycling Boom has found an easy solution that's similar to a car's Vehicle Identification Number system.
Cycling Boom is serious about biking safety and anti-theft tools, which is why it has devised a new system to deter thieves from eyeing the eco-friendly transportation method. Using a tagging system, the silver labels can be adhered securely onto different parts of the bicycle. Each set of numbers is registered onto a universal online registry system as well so they can be accessed worldwide. This not only discourages thieves from stealing property, but for buyers to purchase and sell those stripped bike parts as well.
