I really love the idea of the BikeSpike but was bummed out to hear that it really only works with an annual subscription service (sort of like a cellphone plan). It uses cellular and GPS data to track your movements and in the event of a bike theft, you can turn it on and send your bike’s GPS data to police so you can recover your bike as quickly as possible.

The BikeSpike is discreet as it blends seamlessly into their bottle holder onto the frame of your bike. For just $149 you can get first dibs on a unit as soon as it’s ready.
