Bic Control Collaborating w/ UC Berkeley on Bike Theft-Prevention Research

We're honored to announce that Bic Control is now in collaboration with graduate students at the University of California, Berkeley to advance the field of bike theft-prevention.

We were contacted last nite by one of our friends, a grad student at UC Berkeley, whose working on a serious project to prevent bike theft via improved urban planning, bike parking facilities, bike-locking technology, and more.

The project is currently in its research phase. The project coordinator we spoke with was mainly interested in how and where we lock our bikes, in addition to informal consulting on suggestions for the improvement of urban planning and bike parking facilities.

Stay blogged for further developments on this interesting endeavor.
