I recently had my baby
stolen. I am understandably paranoid and pissed. My insurance is buying me a new bike, and i plan on protecting it like it's plated in gold. Since i can't afford a dog
or a stormtrooper
to chain to the bike, i am exploring less obvious methods of theft recovery.
With the abundance of such technology, GPS tracking, cell phone tracking, etc., it seems that it would be relatively easy to cobble together something that would be able to track down a stolen bike. Several people have suggested finding a cheap cell phone compatible with a tracking program to hide in the bike. Is this plausible? how reliable are the different methods...is GPS tracking more stable than cell phone tracking?
I searched for a primer on tracking technologies, but everything seems rather convoluted. I can't really make heads nor tails of the information i'm getting.
kind of what i'm looking for? or this perhaps?
(though it seems rather expensive...but can you really put a price on knocking on the door of the guy who stole your bike with a sizable posse?)
