rfid - that's the baby. They are fairly cheap as I understood it. The reader / sensor wouldn't need to be clever so could be cheap. Just need a power source for the TNT charge under the saddle.
Thieving scumbags at it again
I don't think you need a TNT charge and besides it would trash your bike and you would still need a new one.
What you do is have a separate post and saddle on the bike when you store it. There could be a micro switch triggered by the RFID that releases a pin. Next time the saddle is sat on a spring powered spike is released from inside the post, this will be powerful enough to penetrate the saddle and well whatever is on the saddle.
nice plan, apart from the fact that the device you just came up with is a man trap. laws were passed in the 1800s to stop that sort of thing...
Laws permit bike theft that doesn't stop the ****.
And besides didn't Cameron just say we are allowed to beat burglars to death? This isn't quite so severe and just delayed a bit. It also doesn't risk your own health. Well unless you forget to remove the post when you go for a ride.
B*****ds. Hope you catch 'em pronto.
