BIN is a Bicycle ID Number assigned to a specific model of a bicycle. It is similar to VIN for cars.
The code is global and unique. Using the BIN code you can easily assign information concerning the bike, its parameters, specifications, repairs and claims history. Here you can get more info about the code structure.
BIN number is an independent code generated in the open source cloud, however the best and the most optimal way of usage of the code is in conjunction with RFID and NFC technology.
BIN consists of 5 sections and 19 characters in total.
It provides you information about the production year, manufacturer, it’s country, region and bike parametres like frame size, wheel size and color. In connection with manufacturers API we are also able to provide much more information about the bike like it’s specification, photo, repairs and claims history and warranty. A detailed structure of the BIN code is presented on the picture.
Besides the BIN code, to optimize your business, we suggest our complete solution based on 4.0 RFID and NFC technology.
The first section of a BIN code contains information about the brand (manufacturer) of the bike. It consist of four characters. First two characters indicates manufactuers’ country, last two charactrs manufacturer itself. The BIN code can be used for more than 300 000 different brands.
The second section of BIN is used to describe the product. It consist of 6 characters describing 5 following parametres:
T – Product type (bike, e-bike, scooter, etc.)
F – Frame size
W – Wheel size
C – Check Digit
MM – Model of a bike
Fourth part of BIN keeps information of the factory location belonging to the manufacturer described in the first section. This section is useful particularly when the manufacturer owns more than one factory.
We provide a free of charge cloud-based open source solution that generates BIN codes and guarantees their uniqueness. Implementation of our cloud will significantly optimize and organize production in your company without disruption of any processes.
Our solution is cloud-based. It means we provide secure API for communication between your systems and our cloud.
Let’s change the Bike Industry together!
We introduce a complete IoT BIN solution
based on 4.0 RFID & NFC Technology
Below we present more information, advantages and pricing.
BIN number is an independent code, that can work separately. However the best way to use it in the factory, warehouse or store is in the conjuction with our complete IoT solution.
Besides the BIN codes we are able to provide the full IoT solution for your Business. It is based on RFID & NFC tags placed on the bike frame.
Thanks to 4.0 technology now you are able to trace bikes you produce, distribute or sell on each stage of their lfecycle.
Below we present who is our solution dedicated for, the advantages of each group of our customers and the network connection of our system

Research and development.
At the beginning of 2022 our company obtained funding from Human Alfa - the investor co-owned by Jagiellonian Center of Innovation. The investment allowed us to expand our professional Research and Development team. It consist of experts and scientists who systematically develop our Open Source and 4.0 RFID / NFC solutions.
In the cooperation with our partner - AXEM technology, an European Leader of RFID solutions, we have created the new RFID Tag dedicated specially for the bike industry. The tag has been created for and tested in the real conditions of the bike production process. It means it is high temperature resistant and can be easily used in the frame burnout process.
Our team is consequently developing our hardware and software solutions to make the highest quality product for the bike industry.

The expansion, and thus the recognition of Ready.Bike, allowed us to go out to sea! Investors’ interest has turned into a big step that we are taking together with Human Alfa.Below a few words about the event from the Jagiellonian Center of Innovation:„Literally a dozen or so minutes ago, Human Alfa, whose shareholder is the Jagiellonian Center of Innovation, took up shares in the Trebiada Company. The company’s main activity is trade intermediation and wholesale of sports equipment, mainly bicycles and bicycle accessories. The company also runs specialized IT projects – such as Ready.Bike and LunchSpace. It is the...
Together with our partner – READY.BIKE we have presented our solution including IOT and 4.0 Technology on the biggest European bike exhibition – Eurobike in Friedrichshafen. We received a fantastic feedback from end-users as well as from the Bussiness Owners from the whole world. We keep going with the hard work to provide the best IOT solution for the bike industry.
