Product Description

The Kryptonite Bike Shepherd ID tag gives cyclists with a FREE global bike registration service designed to reduce bike theft and aid recovery:
  • Using mobile technology and social networking, Bike Shepherd offers cyclists new ways to protect and recover their bikes, if stolen
  • Cyclists register their bike at no cost on the Bike Shepherd website at http://www.bikeshepherd.org/register.html
  • The Kryptonite Bike Shepherd ID tag is a unique, tamper-resistant, weatherproof ID tag that includes a QR code used to identify a bike's status
  • Any person with a smartphone and a free 2D barcode application can scan a tagged bicycle
  • The scanned tag links directly to that bike in the secure Bike Revolution database, and gives the status of the bike
  • If a bike is listed as stolen, Bike Shepherd publishes this information on the site and uses social networking tools to spread the word
  • Localized Stolen Bike Alerts are sent to Bike Shepherd's followers on Facebook and Twitter, the bike owner, local authorities, bike shops and cycling clubs

Wish I'd known better

Having bought, I read Bhopminder M's review since I also couldn't register with the manufacturer. Don't buy.

DON'T BUY

I really liked the idea of this as my son has just got a new bike after his old one was stolen. However, I have tried to register on the bike revolution website as per the instructions but keep getting a server error message - sent an email - no response. On further investigation with Companies House, Bike Revolution was dissolved in August 2016 so this is now completely useless. I contacted Tredz customer services to let them know and am returning this for a refund. I'm disappointed that Tredz still have this product on the website for sale after I have informed them. Tredz Response: bikerevolution.org is now trading as bikeshepherd.org, you can find a link on the description tab.

Good idea

Having had 2 bikes stolen recently this is a simple but effective idea that should work well to aid recovery. A little pricey at £10 but well worth it if it works when needed.

Very simple produce

A good piece of additional security for my wifes new trike. Simple to set up and very cheap, especially if you spend over £50 and got £5 off the cost, so that was £4.99 for additional security. Bargain

Bike Locks Guide

What type of bike lock do I need?

Cable Lock | Use in low crime areas

These are the lightest bike locks. They’re very flexible and easy to carry in your pocket or on your frame. Great as a visual deterrent or secondary lock to fix quick release components to your frame.

Combination Lock | Use in low crime areas

These are cable locks with a 3 or 4-digit combination rather than a key lock. They are great if you don't want to worry about forgetting keys.

Chain Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas

Chain locks are versatile. Thick chain links are great against bolt cutters. You can secure your bike to a range of bulky and unusual objects.

D-Lock | Use in medium/high crime areas

D-locks are strong and often made from hardened steel. You get 360-degree protection for your frame. Locking mechanisms can resist picking and drilling while the D shaping makes leverage style attacks difficult.

Ground anchor | Use in high crime areas

Ground anchors are immovable platforms you fix to your garage floor or wall. When used with a strong chain lock you can fix your frame to the anchor. These offer the best protection for home storage.

How heavy is a bike lock?

In general, the stronger a bike lock, the heavier it will be.

Cable / Combo locks

These range from around 400g up to 1.25kg depending on the thickness and material used in the twisted cable. These are the lightest bike locks for easy transport.

Chain locks

Chain locks range from around 1kg up to 7kg for the thickest and toughest chain locks. Choose a mid-range weight if you're commuting daily to blend strength and weight.

D Locks

D-locks tend to be 1kg up to 2.5kgs and are more compact for daily use than a chunky chain lock.

What is Sold Secure?

A great way to determine the quality of a bike lock is to see if it is Sold Secure Rated. This is a third party, independent rating system.

An approved lock is graded as Gold, Silver or Bronze. The rating is chosen by how long it takes to break the lock and the tools needed to break it.

If you're planning on insuring your bike, many insurers will state you need a Sold Secure rated lock to make a successful claim.

Typically a bronze rating covers a bike up to the value of £500, silver up to £1,000 and gold for any bike worth over £1,000.

These values vary between insurance providers so check the terms and conditions of your provider.
