"A bike that has been stolen will be covered in coloured dye (the dye renders the bike undesirable and therefore unsellable )"

Great idea but it seems a bit rock and a hard place to me as you prevent your bike being stolen (for which you could have claimed if insured) but are left with an awful paint job that even Colnago would reject, something you're stuck with and for which you can't claim a penny. Hmm.

Point taken. Most car enthusiasts I know wouldn't want a tracking device on their pride and joy, on the basis that once it's been taken and had the bollocks driven off it, why would they want it back? Rather have the insurance money.

I thought you meant exploding as in blew their hands off...otherwise not interested....or is the paint infected with some killer virus?

My thoughts exactly, Unless its some sort of land mine style which blows the little c**ts arms off for even trying to nick one of my bikes, then i'll leave it, i dont care for coving some kn*b in paint and having a bike i would never want to use again, could never resell either

BUT then if they came up with a way to take the paint off your frame and leave it undamaged, it wouldn't be long until the thieves could do the same

What about a device that electro stuns the tea-leaf?

Maybe it could be bult into the saddle  19

Now thats another idea to consider, build in a fingerprint scanner somewhere on the bars that has to be hit within 10 seconds of the bikes pedals being spun with pressure from the feet, if not it lets off a tazer into your arse  4

The tazer idea is great Gkam84...the problem with our ideas is that they may malfunction....

In the tazer case this could be quite shocking....

Just found one of these

If the bike gets nicked you could imagine this may be useful information to pass on to the police. Or a couple of big mates - not that I'd recommend this of course.
