KEEP TABS ON YOUR BIKE AT ALL TIMES

I’m sad to say that my bike was recently stolen. AGAIN. But there’s no way that I’m going to live without my two-wheeled transportation once the warm weather rolls around. I’m going to replace my beloved bike! However, this time no one is going to get away with stealing my stuff. If all goes well, the BikeSpike Kickstarter campaign will be funded and save my next purchase.

BikeSpike is a GPS tracker that notifies you – via phone and email – the second something goes awry. Like when your bike starts moving without you on it. Once you’ve digitally “locked” your bike, the accelerometer and GPS chipset pinpoint your wheel’s exact whereabouts. Start the chase by sharing the details with friends and law enforcement on social media and via police report.

The device is attached to your frame with tamper resistant screws, and it can even be strategically hidden behind a custom water bottle cage for maximum security. Pledge $150 now, and BikeSpike can be yours in October.  Read more at WIRED.
