Nah, B-cycle confirms this is a “very early B-cycle model” used before the bike share system launched. Those bikes were sold after that testing period, says spokesperson Mark Stevens.
People don’t go on cross-country road trips with the actual B-Cycles. Over the whole six-year lifespan of the system, only a few bikes have gone missing.
“We prevent leakage by obtaining users’ credit card info before they checkout a bike and charging for the replacement value of the bike if it is not returned,” Stevens said.
Of the few bikes that have gone missing, all have been found within a 30 mile radius.
