Listed for $10 each @ ebiketeam.co.nz so pretty decent freebie.
Christchurch City Council is partnering with Canterbury Police and bike security platform 529 Garage, the world’s largest community-powered bike recovery service, to help prevent bike theft.
529 Garage is a bicycle registration and alert technology. Their tamper-resistant 529 Shield is a decal containing a unique seven-character ID that adds an extra identifier to your bike. It sends a warning to thieves that the bike is registered and there will be a community of bike owners looking out for it if it gets stolen.
If your bike is stolen and found by Police or another person, they can look-up your bike on the 529 Garage website, using your unique shield ID number, and get it back to you.
We are offering 529 Garage shields free for a limited time, so get in quick, and tell your friends.
