BIKE MINE: The world’s loudest bicycle alarm

bike mine

If the average D-lock seems too passive a way of protecting against bicycle theft, check out BIKE MINE – the world’s loudest alarm.

When thieves come for your bicycle in the dead of night they have a massive advantage. You are asleep. They have time to prise open sheds and dismantle locks in peace. The answer, according to the makers of BIKE MINE, is to use the world’s loudest alarm.

When tripped by a thief, BIKE MINE detonates a 150 dB blast of sound; more than enough to startle a thief and raise the alarm. It’s an idea that isn’t intended to replace the need for a good insurance policy, but rather a simple, low-tech means of protecting your bicycle when it’s stored on your property.

BIKE MINE

Only one moving part makes BIKE MINE reliable around the clock

BIKE MINE comprises a length of titanium wire, a spring-loaded trap and a small detonator. Velcro straps allow it to be attached quickly to any type of bicycle and a neoprene rubber coating protects the frame from unwanted scratches. The design has the advantage of being low-tech; there are no batteries to run down and only one moving part, which means reliability around the clock and in all weathers.

We have a BIKE MINE worth £49 to give away. Please leave a comment below and let us know what bike you would use it to protect – we will pick a winner later this month.

Protect your bicycle from £1.85 per month

BIKE MINE might be an innovative approach to tackling theft, but it can’t protect beyond the boundaries of your property. In other words, it can’t replace the need for a good cycle insurance policy. Unlike most insurers, ETA never devalue your bicycle if it’s stolen. It’s just one of the reasons they were voted Britain’s most ethical insurance company by the Good Shopping Guide.

    If I’d had one of these, I might still have a couple of extra bikes. The alarm I had on them didn’t even wake our cat…

    I would use it to protect my kalkhoff electric bike – bought when I developed an auto-immune condition and could no longer ride an ordinary bike, but didn’t want to rely more on my car.

    What a great idea having had a bike stolen despite having 2 heavey duty locks and chains I know how upsetting it is to have your everyday transport stolen! I would use it on my mountain bike.

    I had one of these on my garage door, looks identical apart from the velcro and rubber bodge to attach it to a bike!
    Thats a blank shotgun cartridge that’s used to make the noize! Don’t think it’s safe to leave that unattended in public?!
    I think if you blinded someone who was crouched down getting touchy feely with your bike, who’d be in court?!

    I would use it to protect the second hand bike which is my life line to get to work, which I had to buy after my good bike was stolen even though it was well secured to the wall of my house with a Gold rated lock.

    The alarm would just give that extra feeling of security that you have done everything to protect your trusty steed and stop the hot sweats which you can have once you have locked your bike and have left it hoping no-one will interfere with it.

    I study in a sleep away college and I don’t have a lot of money and biking is my only way of getting around . Last night the bike shed in my collage, where everyone keeps their bikes,had a big robbery and all the bikes got stolen besides 3 bikes . Two of them where old and rusted and the other one was mine A good condition giant . The lock ,witch was a master lock , was very damaged but they didn’t manage to get it open . I need to get a new lock but I can’t afford one please help out.

    P.S I saw the bike mine on one of amazons grand tours and I love it!

    I would use it for my electric trike. Obviously because I cannot fit my trike in the flat. It’s a BANG GOOD IDEA . Every bike, trike,scooter, should come with one of these, it should be mandatory. Best deterrent I have seen to date. A big bang well done.
