Bike Hack: Identity Theft

Sometimes bikes get stolen, and it’s no fun, but sometimes you spot them! In this case, you might have to prove it’s your bike, with this trick it’s easy:

  • Take your seattube off
  • Fill out a piece of paper with you & your bicycle’s information
  • Roll up the piece of paper and place it in the seattube
  • Put your seattube back on
BOOM! Now you’ve added some proof that your bike is actually yours in the case that the police are asking you for identifying features.
NOTE: You can also place the piece of paper inside your handlebars if you wish.
