dB Cycle

Mike Brophy
Why do vehicles and homes have security systems? Because they’re an effective theft deterrent – even warning signs themselves are found to be incredibly effective. So why don’t bicycles have security systems, too? That’s exactly what we thought when creating dBCycle, which was initiated from seeing countless posts regarding bicycle theft on the UCSA Noticeboard Facebook Page.
