Hi everyone! Recently I have purchased new bike for myself. It was great surprise to discover that it is equipped with LoJack tracking system. I don't want to be tracked so how can I get rid of it without disassembling my bike?

You know, the manufacturer of the bike you have bought made really clever decision by installing not common GPS tracking but LoJack tracking system into its new bikes. LoJack trackers use low VHF frequencies to operate thus ordinary GPS jammers simply cannot prevent their location tracking signals from going out to the receiver somewhere out there.
Moreover, LoJack signal is powerful enough to be transmitted even if you cover your bike with aluminium foil, so it is clear for me why you thought about disassembling your new shiny bike. And the reason you don't want to do that is easy to understand too because if I bought such bike I would not want to disassemble it too. Still there is one thing that might help you.
Despite the fact that LoJack trackers are not as widespread as GPS trackers, there is a device that has jamming signal tuned to deal with them and it is powerful enough to do that. So you can just block LoJack tracking in your new bike and continue to enjoy the speed and freedom it can give you!
