Yet again there were a lot more bicycle thefts this week. Please do everyone a favor and engrave your bike so we can catch these foolios!
In order to help aid in the recovery of stolen bicycles and also possibly help catch the thieves, Urban Escape and ELVINO on Abbot Kinney have generously offered to keep a Dremel engraving tool at their stores for the summer so that residents can etch their drivers license or phone number into the bottom of their bicycle frame. Remember to write down the serial number of the bicycle too!
Here is an informative video on how to engrave with a Dremel tool, with a smart tip on using masking tape:
We highly recommend stopping in to ElVino and Urban Escape and hooking your bike up, and will run this post again next weekend and a few more times during the summer. While use of the Dremel is free, feel free to support these awesome businesses while you are at it!
