Join the 529 Garage and protect your bike.
In less than 5 minutes, this app will help you capture the critical information about your bike and establish ownership, helping you maximize your claim with insurance and recovery efforts with police in the event of loss.
If your bike is stolen, simply press the Alert button in the app. Answer a few quick questions and we’ll let everyone in the nearby 529 community know along with the details to help others spot your bike. If they see it, they can snap a quick photo and let you know. It’s like a neighborhood watch network for your bike. We’ll get your social networks on board too. The 529 Garage also automatically creates posters that you can place around town, all from your iOS device and AirPrint enabled printer.

Registered My Bikes For Campus Safety
If you've been unlucky enough to ever have a bike stolen (I've found myself in this position a couple of times, unfortunately) you know that the first thing you do is look for avenues of recourse. You scramble to get information dispersed and returned as fast as possible, because the longer your bike is gone, the less chance you'll ever see it again. This app could be your beacon of light in that moment, and I'd highly recommend registering your whips and applying the stickers.
Having said that...lock your bike up. Use a U-lock. Through the rear wheel and the rear triangle. Maybe consider a small cable lock for the front wheel, or locking skewers. If you have a nice seat, figure that out, too. Don't leave your bike locked overnight in low-traffic areas. Honestly, once your bike is stolen, you'll probably never see it again, app or not. So. Just lock your bike up.
Peace of Mind
Great app to get all of the information about your ride in one place and make sure you can use every possible means to find it if it's stolen.
The app for every bike owner
I sleep better knowing my bike has a 529 shield on it. And if a bike thief steals it anyway, I know the chances of it being recovered are pretty good. Every bike sold should come with a shield. Get the app and register your bike now.
