About this project

Have you ever got your bike stolen? Or did someone of your family? If not, lucky you. If yes, no big surprise: bike theft is a very common crime internationally. It has been estimated that in Italy approximately 320.000 bikes per year are stolen, while in the UK the number raises to about 500.000. And no matter how thick your lock is, they always find a way through.

But what if we told you that we have a solution to this problem? It’s called FrameBlock and it is the coolest bike with an integrated mechanic anti-theft system.

 

How does it work?

Frameblock - a patented idea by MilanoBike- includes in its frame two steel ropes (red cables in the picture below), covered in rubber or similar, and a burglarproof lock, which are integral components of the bike’s layout and design, as shown by the picture.

When you park the bike, you can open the lock with the codified six-digits key and secure the bike in several ways, for example to a pole, to another bicycle, to the rear wheel, to the pedals etc.

 
 

... or secure it in any other way you prefer!

Why it cannot be stolen

There is no way to repair the damaged bike’s frame and the only solution is to substitute it with a new one. In Italy, MilanoBike commits to provide the customer a new FrameBlock, upon presentation of the bike theft’s denounce to the police, where it is also displayed the identification number of the stolen bike.  MilanoBike is working to find insurance companies to partner with also in other countries, in order to be able to provide the same service everywhere.

Risks and challenges

We've been brainstorming about risks and challenges for FrameBlock. Honestly, we do not see many risks and big challenges ahead, except for starting production. This is the most important step forward for us and will be only possible if we get the necessary funding.
