Bicycle Vandalism – What to do?

Everyone has probably seen these pictures of bicycle vandalism up close: Bicycles that are hardly recognizable as such. Especially in big cities, one often encounters lonely front wheels that are fastened to railings with thick chain locks. Also to the bare sheet metal gutted bicycle frames one finds frequently. If a parked bicycle is damaged, it is not only annoying, but can also lead to a high financial burden.

These examples are, of course, extremely drastic cases of bicycle vandalism.

Bicycle Vandalism - What to do, that a parked bike will not be damaged?
  • Can this happen to me, too?
  • What should I do if my bicycle is the victim of vandalism?
  • Who will pay for the damage?

In fact, random property damage is widespread. Between 600,000 and 800,000 cases of vandalism are reported in Germany every year. And the number of unreported cases is higher, because not everyone reports the damage to property.

Vandalism to your bike: How do you react correctly?

The frame scratched, the wheels bent or even slashed and the saddle stolen. When we find our bike in such a condition, the shock is deep! Here’s how to react correctly when your bike is affected by vandalism:

1. Stay calm

If your parked bike has been damaged, you are naturally shocked at first. However, it is important that you remain calm and keep a cool head.
Usually, at second glance, the damage is not quite so disastrous and can be quickly repaired so that you can still make your way home.

2. Do not intervene

If you even catch the person responsible in the act, you will certainly want to intervene immediately and vent your anger. But the police warn against intervening! Bicycle vandalism is often carried out in a group that can be intoxicated and prone to violence.
So do not put yourself in danger.
It’s best to go unnoticed and memorize the outward characteristics of the vandals.

3. Report the vandalism to the police

Whether you catch the vandalism of your bike in the act or just find the result, be sure to report the incident to the police.
When reporting against unknown, you should also describe what damage was done to your bike and where you parked your bike.

4. Notify your insurance company

If you have bicycle vandalism insurance, you should notify them immediately. Otherwise, bicycle vandalism is also covered by your homeowner’s insurance.
It’s best to check with your insurance company to be prepared in case of an emergency.

Why is bicycle vandalism so widespread?

It is annoying that a parked bicycle is damaged, but this fact does not surprise us all very much. Besides bicycles, cars or window panes are also vandalized. In most cases, the perpetrators are young people who incite each other to stupidity through a group dynamic. If alcohol is also involved, inhibitions fade and the consequences for their actions are forgotten. Frustration or anger is also often behind outbursts of rage that result in the destruction of other people’s property.

Of course, the victims of bicycle vandalism do not have much understanding for the fact that their bicycle had to serve as an outlet of rage. The perpetrators usually strike completely randomly and can therefore only be identified in the fewest cases. To protect a parked bicycle from damage, you have to come up with something these days.

For example, a smart bike lock with an integrated alarm system can be a good way to effectively deter bike vandalism.

Bicycle Vandalism - What to do, that a parked bike will not be damaged?

Is bicycle insurance against vandalism worthwhile?

Protection against bicycle vandalism refers to the wanton destruction of property by others. Most standard insurance policies do not cover vandalism. Therefore, it is important to protect an expensive bicycle or e-bike from vandalism as well.

To decide whether insurance is necessary for you, you should weigh the risk factors beforehand. In urban areas, for example, vandalism is a bigger problem than in rural areas. Your usage patterns also factor into the consideration. If you commute to work and leave the bike at the station, or you like to go out in the evening and leave the bike outside at night, it is at higher risk. The value of the bike also plays a role. E-bikes or expensive bike models would be very expensive to repair, which can make insurance a good idea.

E Bike Insurance – Uncomplicated and fast help

Modern insurance companies now offer comprehensive benefits for your own bike, because bike and e-bike insurance is becoming increasingly important for cyclists. What has long been standard and even mandatory for cars (liability and comprehensive insurance) is also increasingly being offered for cyclists.

E-bikes are in vogue: with electronic support, tours can be completed faster and more comfortably. If e-bikes initially had the cliché of being a boring way for seniors to get around, that’s definitely over now! Electric bikes are becoming more and more modern and sporty and can be used for all kinds of needs in everyday life and vacations.

E-bikes are an expensive investment that you should definitely protect adequately. Electric bikes are a popular target for bike theft, which is why a secure bike lock is essential. In addition, you should think about an e-bike insurance to avoid suffering a high financial loss in case of theft.

Reasons that speak for an e-bike insurance:

  1. The bike was very expensive.
  2. In everyday life you are dependent on the bicycle.
  3. You live in a theft stronghold (e.g. Bremen or Berlin).

The difference between E-Bike und Pedelec

Misunderstandings can easily arise among the terms e-bike and pedelec. In practice, there is often no clear distinction when using these terms. In particular, “pedelec” is not defined in the law. There are also no clear descriptions of the term “e-bike” in registration law, for example.

Mostly, the terms “pedelec” and “e-bike” are used synonymously for electronic bicycles with assisted drive. But it is important that you know exactly which category your bike belongs to. The reason for this is that different rules apply in each case! The type of drive determines which legal regulations apply and whether e-bike insurance is suitable for you.

  • Pedelecs up to 25 km/h are usually treated like bicycles
  • For some e-bikes at least a moped test certificate is required
  • A helmet should always be worn
E Bike Insurance - Uncomplicated and fast help

Pedelecs and e-bikes, which require motor vehicle liability insurance, fall outside the scope of bicycle insurance. In this case, an additional partial coverage insurance can be useful – it protects against theft, among other things.

Pedelecs/E-Bikes up to 25 km/h – assisting drive

A pedelec is a supportive electric bicycle. It is powered by a combination of muscle power and a supporting motor. That is, when you pedal , you are supported by the built-in motor.

The motor may be equipped with a maximum rated continuous power of 250 watts. As the speed increases, the assistance is reduced. From a speed of 25 km/h or, if the rider stops pedaling before then, the assistance from the auxiliary motor is also interrupted. Starting or pushing assistance up to 6 km/h is permitted.

As with cycling, no driver’s license is required and there is no minimum age. You do not need an insurance license plate. Although helmets are not mandatory, wearing one is strongly recommended. In addition, you are allowed to use all bike lanes, just like with a normal bike.

Pedelecs up to 45 km/h

Fast pedelecs up to 45 km/h fall into the category of motor vehicles, which require their own insurance license plate.

Only if you are at least 16 years old and have a class AM driver’s license, you are allowed to ride these two-wheelers. Please be sure to note that you may only use the roadway, bike paths are off limits! When using them, a suitable helmet must be worn, just like when riding a motorcycle.

E-bikes – fully motorized drive

These bikes are considered mopeds, where a suitable helmet is mandatory for motorcycles. In addition, an insurance license plate is required. Bike paths are taboo here as well. You may only ride on the roadway.

Bicycle and e-bike insurance at a glance


Basically, there is the possibility to cover your e-bike within the household insurance or via an exclusive bicycle insurance or e-bike insurance. Since most cyclists usually have their bike covered by their household insurance anyway, the question arises whether additional insurance is necessary at all.

Both have their advantages and disadvantages, which you should consider before making a decision. The following is a brief summary of the various considerations.

Bicycle insurance and e-bike insurance

Bicycle insurance basically covers the replacement value of an e-bike. The policy usually includes damage due to theft, damage, falling / crashing, material and construction defects as well as wear and tear. Explicit e-bike insurance policies also offer protection against damage to electronics and moisture. As part of an all-round carefree package, you can also be “towed” (pick-up service).

Home contents insurance

If you extend your household insurance, the new value of the bicycle is included in the total value of the household contents. As a rule, however, the theft protection then refers to e.g. e-bikes locked in the bicycle cellar and not if it was properly connected e.g. at the station. Electronics etc. are also usually excluded from the scope of insurance. Furthermore, the value of the reimbursement does not reach the actual purchase price of the e-bike.

In detail: Bicycle insurance

Insurance for the bicycle or e-bike is worthwhile especially if the value is over 500 euros. The scope of benefits varies depending on the insurance and what you are willing to spend extra annually. Customization of insurance coverageis a big plus for e-bike insurance. Theft protection is included in all insurance policies, and in addition, vandalism damage can also be claimed.

E-bikes are very expensive to purchase, so bike insurance policies offer a so-called value guarantee: the entire replacement value of the e-bike is reimbursed. But beware, the e-bike must not be older than one year when the contract is concluded. When it comes to repairs, some insurers work with authorized repair shops. If it is important to you, then ask in any case whether there is a free choice or whether there is an authorized dealer. The night clause (no liability for theft is assumed between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.) does not exist in bicycle insurance, so you benefit from round-the-clock protection.

In detail: Home contents insurance as e-bike insurance

Home insurance is an all-rounder insurance for many. Bicycles can be conveniently included in the portfolio. However, as an e-bike owner, you should look very closely to see if your current homeowner’s insurance provides enough protection and damage coverage for you.

The cost is usually less than an additional e-bike insurance policy, and the expense should be less as well, since no additional policy is needed. In addition, all bicycles in the household are covered with just one insurance policy – something that bike insurance does not currently offer.

Basically, however, the decision stands and falls with the value of an e-bike. After all, an expensive e-bike should also replace its entire value if insurance has been taken out: In the vast majority of cases, household insurance does not do this. An example calculation: Your household contents are insured for 30,000 euros and the e-bike for 2 percent of the sum insured. Your e-bike would then be insured for only 600 euros. However, the acquisition costs were probably significantly higher at > 2,000 Euro.

Further disadvantages

  • Vandalism damages are not covered
  • Scope of benefits severely limited
  • Nighttime clause: limited protection between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
  • Theft protection applies only to locked rooms

What costs can I expect?

With an e-bike insurance policy, you pay between 180 and 300 euros per year, depending on the scope.

If you extend your household insurance, you will have to pay around 50 euros a year. However, the costs vary greatly from region to region: If you live in an area with a high theft rate, then the insurance costs also increase up to 350 euros per year.

The amount of the insurance premium always depends on the replacement value of the e-bike and also on the desired scope. Use a comparison calculator, which asks for your individual needs and thus creates a real comparison of the offered e-bike insurances.

    Alarm on the bicycle

    LOCK IT is equipped with an integrated alarm system to increase theft protection for your bike. If your I LOCK IT locked bike is raised and moved, or if a thief attempts to break up I LOCK IT, the bicycle lock triggers a 110 dB alarm sound.

    The alarm scares the thief and alerts passers-by. After 30 seconds, the alarm will automatically stop. If the bike continues to move then the alarm will restart for 30 seconds. Thus, the bicycle theft is much more difficult.

    If the alarm was triggered inadvertently, then stop e.g. via the I LOCK IT App, the alarm before the 30 seconds have elapsed.

    Bluetooth Bike Lock – Keyless Control

    Nowadays, the smartphone makes it easy for us to keep an eye on the devices and applications of our daily lives. The lighting or room temperature in the house, refrigerator contents and now also bike locks.

    A control of bike locks completely without a key or a number code is made possible by means of Bluetooth. Bluetooth is a radio technology that is integrated into all smartphones. Over a short distance, easy and secure data exchange is possible.

    A Bluetooth lock is characterized by the fact that it is controlled via an app on the smartphone. In order to avoid unnecessarily straining the battery life of the smartphone, nowadays only the improved Bluetooth Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) wireless technology is used. This reduces the energy requirements for communication without neglecting the benefits of Bluetooth in general.

    The differences between bike locks with Bluetooth are on the one hand in the style of the lock: From U-lock, folding lock to frame lock, there are many options. The scope of control in the app can also be very different. Depending on the functionality of the Bluetooth bike lock, the app offers appropriate control options.

    The security of a Bluetooth lock

    Access to Bluetooth bike locks is not easily possible. Common thieves work with bolt cutters and usually have little knowledge about Bluetooth LE technology. Bike thieves would have to become bike lock hackers.

    The use of standardized encryption methods implements the highest security requirements. It is almost impossible to get access to a Bluetooth lock.

    To hack a Bluetooth bike lock,

    ⤷ the thief must be very close to the lock,

    ⤷ he needs to know the individual key, which is exchanged between the bike lock and smartphone when connecting.

    ⤷ since all communication is highly encrypted it is nearly impossible to hack the lock

    Combination of a frame lock with modern Bluetooth technology

    I LOCK IT combines the modern Bluetooth LE technology with the classic advantages of a frame lock. The immobilizer is an ideal relief especially for short errands. The search for the key as well as the cumbersome application of a U-Lock to the bike stand is eliminated.

    With I LOCK IT you just go, the bike lock automatically locks for you and opens as soon as you return. You do not even have to get your smartphone out of your pocket.

    In addition, Bluetooth frame locks such as I LOCK IT can also be extended with a plug-in chain so that two different locks are used. Both are completely keyless and are controlled by a smartphone app.

    Functions of the Bluetooth lock I LOCK IT

    SMART

    The intelligent bike lock opens and closes fully automatically via Bluetooth connection to your smartphone. It is not necessary to close manually, but the possibility exists at any time. As an alternative to the smartphone, there is a remote control that can be used independently to open and close I LOCK IT.

    “The automatic mode, which can be turned off, is a comfort gain, especially if you want to park the bike for small errands just briefly.” Mario Hommen, Journalist (zeit online)

    I LOCK IT APP

    You can download the I LOCK IT App for free. It supports Apple and Android systems. The I LOCK IT App turns your smartphone into a digital key. The configuration options are very extensive: setting the range for opening and closing, managing sounds, battery indicator, sharing function and much more.

    “I have been using my ilockit since the summer and am very satisfied. It is practical in everyday life. The first app version was not that great, but with each new version, the features were significantly better and it got new features every time. ” Jule A (Google Play Store)

    ALARM

    I LOCK IT immediately identifies a theft. A 110 dB alarm sounds, frightens the bike thief and thus secures your bike. In addition, the Bluetooth bike lock notifies its owner by message on the smartphone. This feature is available in Bluetooth range. Since most people park their bikes in the vicinity of the apartment, this is not a problem.

    “Every lock can be cracked with the right tools and time but both together give me a good feeling personally as it also has an alarm and informs me on the phone. As long as the range is not too big! ” TROOP (Amazon)

    EMERGENCY OPENING

    If the technology strikes for various reasons, you have the possibility to open or close I LOCK IT at any time. Based on a color code defined by you during the initial setup of I LOCK IT in the app, you always have access to the Bluetooth lock.

    “In the test, I had the impression that I was dealing with a well thought-out product. Be it unlocking with an easy-to-remember click code thanks to association with colors […] “Frederick P. (Gadget Rausch)

    Bike App: Use your smartphone for more bike safety

    To secure your bike more effectively against thieves, your smartphone can be a reliable companion. Bike apps are little helpers for everyday life that you install on your smartphone. This allows you to monitor all kinds of different metrics that give you more security and confidence. The bandwidth has now become very extensive. Apps instantly alert you with a push message on your smartphone when someone tries to steal your bike and trigger the alarm. This gives you the necessary security, even if you do not have your bike in sight.

    Important: An app alone does not protect your bike from theft, but is a supplement! Do not go without a good bike lock.

    Take advantage of the benefits of new technologies. By connecting a tracker, a smart bike lock or navigation device to your smartphone, you get real-time location information on your phone.

    Alarm apps – in case of theft

    In combination with an alarm system, you will receive an alarm message directly to your smartphone if theft is attempted. With a bike app that controls the alarm, you can directly deactivate the triggered alarm, for example, if it is a false alarm. Depending on the app provider, it is possible to set the sensitivity at which the alarm will be triggered. In a restless environment, e.g. at the supermarket, it makes sense not to raise the alarm to the highest level of sensitivity. Most of these bike racks are heavily used and there may be unintentional bumps on your bike. In addition, there is often the option of a “silent alarm” that notifies you by push message but does not trigger a loud alarm on the spot.

    Location Apps – for more security

    A pure bike app indicating the location does not exist in the form. Mostly this function is integrated in more extensive bike apps. As a rule, the location of the bike is not stored directly, but that of the smartphone (which is in the immediate vicinity of the bicycle). However, if a tracking chip is installed on the bike, this determines the location of the bike and displays it on a map. In addition, live tracking is also possible.

    Tracking Apps – always know where your bike is

    To find your bike in the event of theft, you can attach a GPS tracker to your bike and use the app to find the exact location and record the route. These bike apps in combination with a GPS tracker work with location technology. A map shows where the bike is and, if so, which route you have taken or the thief took. If you have equipped your bike with this technology, we strongly advise against going on a search yourself.

    Go to the local police, they will take the case and also take into account the GPS location. Compare the differences in functionality before buying a GPS tracker and the associated app, so your personal requirements are covered.

    A GPS Tracker alone offers very little benefit. Especially when it comes to theft protection for your bike. Equip your bike with a smart bike lock from I LOCK IT and combine the benefits of a smart bike lock and an alarm. Together with the I LOCK IT app, this results in high-quality anti-theft protection that can effectively prevent the theft of your bike at any time.
