After experiencing bike theft over and over again a few university mates decided to put their heads together and come up with a solution to combat this problem.


This sparked the idea of creating a free bike database system for all New Zealanders to use. Bike Database is dedicated to making it easier for stolen bikes to be returned to their owners.

In 2020 Bike Database was developed to enable bike details to be recorded, transferred, checked and reported. The system allows buyers of second-hand bike to check if the bike they are interested in is stolen. The serial number and other distinct features of your bike are linked to your user profile to help police track down the owners of the stolen bikes they recover!
