Bicycle theft is of top concern to most bike owners. Each year thousands of bicycles are stolen across the country and in many cases never recovered. While many of the stolen bikes end up in police custody they are never returned to the owner due to lack of positive identification.
In fact, on average less than 10% of recovered property is returned to the owner.
Thieves also know that most bikes are rarely identified and count on this to easily sell stolen bikes and other property. In many cases the thieves will even take stolen property to other cities just to ensure that the chance of getting caught is reduced.
Don't allow this to happen to your bike! By registering the bike you add international traceability which creates fear and uncertainty in the mind of the criminal and create barriers to profiting from property theft.
