Why not get your bikes LED head light to do some double duty as an HD camera. That is the idea behind the Cycliq Fly12 (and the Fly6 rear bike camera). The Cycliq Fly12 ($299) sports a 1080P camera with a 10-hour battery life, a built-in bike alarm, Strava integration, an LED 400 lumen light, and it is even weatherproof.    ...

The OTTOLOCK is a clever take on the age old problem of what bike lock should I use. You can go with the super heavy and slightly more secure locks but you have to lug that weight around with you. And to be fair, all locks, yes all locks, can be compromised rather quickly with the right tools. Think angle grinders, plasma cutters, bolt cutters and the like. If you leave a nice bike locked overnight in the urban jungle it will most likely not make it through the night regardless of your locking solution. You get the point. The OTTOLOCK...

This pretty clever product turn just about any bicycle into an e-bike in about 60-seconds. Simply swap out the front tire with the GeoOrbital Wheel ($995) and you are ready to go. The GeoOrbital Wheel uses a remote throttle for control and comes in a 700c (28in/29in) or 26in size. It is powered by a 500W motor and allows riders to hit about 20 mph. Good news, it is made in USA, Massachusetts to be exact. Bad news, it cost as much as a complete electric bike.    ...

All of this weighs 73-lbs and has a range of 56-miles with a 3.5-hour charge...

The Whippet Folding Bicycle ($3,900) is new to the scene, all the way from Britain. The Whippet Bike uses an oval 25CrMO4 steel frame for extra strength. The folding technique is different than folding bikes of the past in that it doesn’t use traditional folding hinges, instead it uses in-line retraction. In fact, I think the bike looks pretty good when folded up. In the folded position the bike is just 30% of its original size. The Whippet Folding Bike weighs just 25.35 pounds and pre-orders will be set up later this year. Let’s...
