- Bike tagging
They sold one brand or other in Halfords last time I went in. If it included some insurance for the bike not being recovered I suppose it might be worthwhile, but I’ve not bothered – nice bikes don’t stay anywhere they could get nicked, ever. If I’m in doubt I take the hack and a lock.Posted 5 years ago
Immobilise is what I use, and not just for bikes.
It’s free and if you are happy with recording your frame number then you don’t even need to buy the datatag thing
Same here – it’s linked to the police national property register and it is what our local force register you with when they do bike marking days etc (so hopefully they actually use it).
I’ve uploaded my bike details plus a few good clear pics showing the full bike, close ups of the frame number and identifying features etc.
No bothered with a tag thing though – I think if they go to the effort of filing off a frame number then they’ll also look for datatags.Posted 5 years agotthewSubscriber

The tags are in a plug that pushes down the seat tube, so all but impossible to get out again. Neither insecure or
a bit pants
If you have a frame that has a formed seat tube or pivot point that stops it, then it’s a grain of rice size thing, (same as a pet chip really) that you can glue inside the BB or drop inside an accessible tube followed by a blob of superglue.Posted 5 years ago
very few coppers carry the scanner
Surely the main idea is that they use this to help get recovered stolen property back to their rightful owners (e.g. back at the station) – not that coppers walk around with handheld scanners and checking random bikes in the street in case they are nicked?

…unless they own a long drill bit.Posted 5 years ago
