Bait bikes

This is exciting. A thief prowling at another. I actually believe that bicycle thievery in San Francisco is pretty prevalent considering the police are now so adamant on nipping these crimes, they resorted to the idea of “Bait Bikes”. A very interesting approach where bicycles are now tagged with GPS devices. Indeed, this is almost like a case half solved. Obviously, for most oblivious thieves, this becomes the ultimate giveaway for them. San Francisco Police Department had their Anti-Bike Theft Unit coming out with a brilliant strategy to apprehend thieves through innovative means. I love how they would then mock the culprit who took the bait. As funny as it might seems, these bicycles were baits to lure the culprits to steal them and eventually had their faces recorded and posted on educational Twitter account, @SFPDBikeTheft. Not only is this humiliating, it is also very entertaining. Bicycle theft cases are on the rise and such measures are panacea to the perpetual crimes plaguing the society. Again, great use of technology, social media and creativity.

Caterham has recently launched Caterham Bikes. The company has been known for making what is retro and laidback into something modern. They have recently unleashed a magnificent arsenal of bikes. They made some new efforts to the Brutus 750. Looking pretty bad ass, the bike comes with gigantic tires, automatic CVT transmission as well as mechanical invulnerability. Caterham is not just satisfied working on the big Brutus, it is planning to get into the bike business where it would revolutionize the classic E-Bike, creating electric bicycles with pedals. Check out some of their designs. Gorgeous.
