This past week, while walking in my neighborhood, I came across the remains of an e-bike frame. It looks to be from a RadWagon (Rad Power Bikes). What struck me about this were two things:
- it is a fairly expensive bike.
- the thieves cut the frame apart, presumably to steal the bikes more expensive components.
So at some point, when protecting out bikes with better locking mechanisms, does it reach a point where the bike frame is the weak link in avoiding theft? The story behind the theft of this particular bike will likely never be told. I found only two parts of the frame. And neither had anything that might help to identify it (no serial numbers or Personalization that I could find). I’m including a few pictures. They were found in Shoreline, WA, along a walking path that abuts a cemetery.
