Bike Share bikes: “Like a sensible shoe”
The bike sharing phenomenon continues to spread. New Haven, CT is looking into getting a system up and running.
Travers said bike-share systems avoid the threat of bike theft by using custom parts that can’t be used on other bikes. There’s no incentive to strip the bikes. “The bikes tend not to get stolen,” Travers said.
Another theft deterrent: bike-share bikes are not exactly hip-looking. “It’s like a sensible shoe.”
