The Cyclingboom bike tags come just with serial numbers; don’t you think that bar-codes or RFID tags are better solutions?

 

Unfortunately reading barcodes and RFID data tags require special devices and would hurt the diffusion and usability of the system even for developed countries. Reading the RFID tags requires a machine and it means that ordinary people cannot use the system, barcodes also are handy if one has the app or device to read it, otherwise it also remains redundant.
