Bicycle theft survey!
show user profile  MrPumpernickel
I am currently working on my degree work in my bachelors education in industrial design at the Umeå Institute of Design. The aim is to create a concept for a device to prevent bicycle theft. I'm currently in the research phase of the project and I would appreciate if anyone who reads this takes a couple of minutes to answer this short survey.

Thank you!

If everyone around you is panicking and you are calm, perhaps you haven't fully grasped the situation

I wrote it in the survay, but would like to know what everyone thinks about the idea here.

The biggest problem with those devices as I see it, is not the main lock itself (everything can be broken into, depends on how much convenience you're willing to sacrifice for the added security)

But what I never saw on any bike, is a separate unit that would lock the wheels and a seat to the frame (then a frame to something else with the main unit).
Result - each time I leave a bike for a longer period of time, I take a seat with me, looking like an idiot.

Do something about it :P

an efficient workaround back in my days was to remove the saddle and take it with you.
Doesnt work well when parked in the gay district doh.

when you say unguarded, do you mean unlocked?

done! i havent had my bike stolen like ever, even tho i leave it everywhere for hours and i dont even have a lock! Ive formulated 2 possible reasons: a) im so intimidating that people who havent even seen me are still too afraid to touch my bike b) where i live people wouldnt touch a used bike even if i paid them

if somebody wants to steal your bike, they will steal your bike

>>Black fella did it.


I had to steal my own bike not long ago. I lost my keys, and it was locked to a fence. It was one of those D style locks. The packaging suggested it's the best that money can get, and it's approved by the police.

Three seconds with a cordless angle grinder and it was off.
