About this project
Troja Bike is the first and only GPS positioning system that can be neither turned off nor removed or destroyed by thieves. Troja bike is securely fixed inside the bicycle frame and can be easily operated. The battery runs up to a season and can be recharged at any time. The cellular connection is available in 44 countries and Troja Bike uses all available satellite systems for position determination:
We will take care of you if your bike gets stolen. Our service center serves every customer in case of theft, working closely with local police and law enforcement, and, upon request, passing on the live GPS data to the authorities to allow rapid and smooth processing. We offer the police a direct interface to the reported stolen bicycles.
If you park your bike, just switch on the motion sensor; you will receive a message if someone unauthorized is moving your bicycle.
Individual position polling
You can request the location of your bike at any time, regardless of whether it was stolen or not.
Troja Bike is completely anonymous. An email address is enough to register with the network and to use Troja Bike. It is also possible to enter the serial number of the bicycle, upload a photo of your bike, and enter your insurance information.
Cooperation with Insurance and Police
Many insurance companies are interested in integrating Troja Bike into their insurance models. More information will follow soon. Only in case of theft the police get the position of your bicycle.
Troja Bike sport
Troja Bike Sport offers the possibility of connecting to our Sports App with evaluations of traveled routes and comparing and sharing the data with friends. Troja Bike sport is an upgrade and can be installed and run online at any time. The transfer of the routes driven is transmitted by Bluetooth to the Troja Bike App.
Two simple steps will get your Troja Bike ready
1) First, connect Troja Bike to the app.
After downloading the Troja Bike App, the accompanying QR-Code will link the app to your Troja Bike.
2) Second, simply mount Troja Bike into your bicycle frame.
It's very simple: remove the seat, insert Troja Bike into the frame and mount the seat again. Use the app to lock and unlock Troja Bike.
A bicycle is usually a long-term, often expensive purchase. It accompanies you in everyday life as well as during some of your leisure activities. A stolen bike is more than just a nuisance; it negatively impacts your daily life and is a financial burden,
and that's where Troja Bike can help:
Our GPS tracker is mounted inside the bicycle frame, invisible to the thief. Troja Bike cannot be turned off, manipulated, or removed by the thief. Once the bike has been stolen, it can be easily tracked and located via the mobile app. The Troja Bike App displays the exact location of your or your child's bike at any given time.
We are pleased to announce that Troja Bike will also be available in Taiwan, Singapore, Brazil, Argentina and South Africa. The annual mobile service charge for these countries has yet to be negotiated. We’ll keep you updated! Thanks for your support! (Shipping costs will be the same as for Japan + local taxes)
Some of our media coverage:
Who are the masterminds behind Troja Bike?
In 2012, brothers Marek and Adrian Rauko began to explore their idea of developing their own GPS tracking system.
Adrian was active as a private investigator for many years. Let down by unreliable locating devices, he decided to take matters into his own hands and to finally develop a device that met his specific needs.
Marek, a trained electrical engineer and IT manager, embraced the idea and joined his brother in the development of the new device. As a result, Troja currently is the best GPS system for authorities and detectives on the market.
This sophisticated technology is now used for the development of Troja bike. Adrian and Marek are joined by their hard-working staff - a big thank you to the entire team!
Troja for police, which is the technical basis for Troja Bike, has already been tested in many countries and has recorded more than 500,000 kilometers driven. The required FCC ID in order to offer our product in the US and Canada has already been issued (FCC ID).
Functionalities of Troja Bike
- Troja Bike cannot be removed, destroyed or disabled by the thief
- The battery can last up to a season and can then easily be recharged by induction
- The position data is transmitted via cellular networks
- Troja Bike uses GPS, Glonass, Galileo and Baidu
- Our service center is always there for you in case your bike has been stolen
- We offer the authorities in charge a direct interface to the stolen bicycles
- Many insurance companies offer discounts when using Troja Bike (the negotiations are ongoing, more on that soon)
- A motion sensor protects your bike
- Troja Bike can easily be installed and operated via the app
- Individual GPS locations can be requested.
- Troja Bike sport can be connected to upgrade the Troja Bike App to a Sports App
As you can see, our project is already well advanced - yet we are a young company that has a vision and relies on the power of the crowd. We are sure that Troja Bike will play a vital role in reducing the number of bikes stolen as well as in resolving many of these stolen bike cases.
To build Troja Bike, we adapt, to a large extent, the electronics from our existing GPS tracker Troja. In addition, we need to modify the casing and bring the locking mechanism to perfection. The very simple and easy-to-use user interface for Troja Bike is inspired by the UI of Troja. To implement all of this as quickly as possible, we need your support.

Risks and challenges
Since we already have a very sophisticated technology with our existing GPS tracker Troja, the risks with Troja Bike are easy to manage. The electronics are largely taken from Troja and they only need to be adjusted in size. The other thing that still needs to be developed by us, is the casing and we are working closely together with a German partner company specializing in that field. Then the only thing left to do, is to finalize the locking mechanism. The very simple and easy-to-use user interface for Troja Bike is inspired by the UI of Troja.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
