Come January 2011, Bike Revolution Anti-Theft device will be available to the U.S. market. In partnership with Kryptonite, Bike Revolution offers an alternative way of avoiding theft and monitoring the bike’s status from the web or mobile. The Bicycle ID kit comes with 3 pulse ID tags. Registering your bike at the Bike Revolution website gives you a free certification of registration, a mobile phone bike scanner application, access to view the stolen bike database and a listing of your bike if it gets stolen.
Bike Revolution created a network of Bike Detectives who can look out for stolen bikes by scanning the bike they find with the pulse ID tags. If a bike is stolen, aside from reporting the incident to the police, Bike Revolution sends out notices to social networking sites like Facebook and lists your bike as stolen. This alerts other Bike Detectives to be on the watch to help you recover your bike.
The Anti-Theft device retails for $14.95.
