Ofo is the largest non-docking bicycle sharing platform in the world.
Good thing they have a password, unlike LimeBike.. I legit accidentally unlocked one by a qr code I’ve found online.
Nakikita ko to sa rules of survival ahahahaha

Mobike, another bicycle sharing company from China, that launched before Ofo, is IMHO, far superior. Here are just some of the reasons:
1. Mobike bicycles are better build – Ofo bikes are lighter, but Mobikes are far more durable, broken Ofo bikes are everywhere in Beijing, but broken Mobikes are seldom seen. It happens quite frequently to me that I couldn't unlock one or more Ofo bikes, but I rarely could find a Mobike I couldn't unlock.2. Mobike has better mobile user experience – after you scan the QR code, the bike will unlock itself, without you needing to enter a passcode. Original Ofo bikes (still in service) use mechanical numerical locks, each bike has a fixed passcode, and Ofo asks the user to scramble the lock after use, many bikes were outright stolen after a single use. This forces Ofo to adopt the new digital lock that scrambles the passcode itself after locking. Still, Mobike's passcode-less approach is much better.3. Original Ofo bikes didn't have GPS, so, compare to regular cheap bikes, the only difference was a numeric lock. This answers @anduthochejr's question: original Ofo bikes are not servicable! All Mobikes have GPS built-in, so if a user reports a broken bike, it can be located and found. Turn on the Mobike app, you can find available bikes around your location, turn on the Ofo bike, well, there's nothing, because most of them don't have GPS!
Ofo saw the success of Mobike and launched afterward, basically a copycat, but wanted to corner the market with more bikes that were cheaper to build. Due to cheaper build quality, static numerical lock and no GPS, they could collect the fee as intended (many people memorized the passcode and scratch off the QR code, or downright took the bike home), so the company just offer the bikes to ride for free (they called it promotions, but these promotions went one immediately after another). And now there are broken Ofo bikes everywhere in Beijing, and mountains of collected bikes needing service. The newer locks seen in the video do have GPS inside, but clearly they still have not as good a user experience as Mobike.
so who will be servicing these bikes? theyre not gonna fix themselves
