Ifindmybike.net

A Platform that makes it possible to find stolen bikes again

Created 2008 it was among the first platforms I was writing.

The idea was pretty simple. Add your bike while you have it. Once its stolen, just activate it and it will be shown on the map with all the other poor stolen bikes.

Bike theft in general (especially in Austria) is a huge problem. My own bike got stolen 3 times - no: 3 times I had to buy a new bike. I was so upset that I created ifindmybike.net.

The technology is from 2008 and I just leave it on because its just working.

Update: As of April 2017 it is shut down.
