(Daily Mail)   Tired of having motorcycles stolen, man parks his bike where he can see it - hanging from a winch outside his third-floor apartment. 'It is not much more work than putting three padlocks on the bike, and it's a lot more secure" (pics)   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 10

kimwim: So he winches it down, leaves his apartment, climbs down the stairs, meanwhile some asshole sees it lowered down, and cuts the lock, and rides off on it. When he comes out of the building, bike is gone.


So he needs to up his game with a remote control for the winch.  Someone get the message to the man, we've solved his achilles heel.

That's a regular thing for contractors that don't want their trailer mounted generators, compressors, welders, and work boxes stolen.

The only thing they have to guard is the crane.

Fissile: In Europe some cities are experimenting with 'bike trees'.  Its a bike storage system where you hook the front wheel of your bike into to a lifting mechanism, swipe a card and the bike is lifted off the street and underneath a canopy.  The bike is out of the elements, and can't be reached from the ground.  The only way to get the bike back down is with the card.

Well, bicycles can be also carried to the apartment or flat.  We're working on a motorcycle theft issue.

Never seen anything lowered upward before.  Can you point us to some examples?

/Lowered down = repetitive and redundant


Are you from the department of redundancy department?
