Neighbourhood watch request – Since 1 Aug we have had 14 bikes stolen from this single location. Citizens of Dub, keep an eye out for us, the thieves take 3-4 bikes at a time between 10pm – 12pm and use bolt cutters. We r working with @GardaTraffic 2 find out who is behind this.
The ‘smartbike’ by Amsterdam-based bike maker Vanmoof comes with unique features, lets owners never have to worry about theft again.
Eequipped with GSM and bluetooth tracking, the ‘smartbike’ will always stay connected throughout a city.
but even if a thief gets past those features, vanmoof is introducing a ‘peace of mind’ guarantee: if the bike is stolen, a recovery team will use the bike’s anti-theft tracking technology to locate and return it its rightful owner.
if they can’t recover it within two weeks, vanmoof will replace it….
