The Flyky Smart Wheel.

May put us out of ‘business’.

It’s a disc that attaches to the rear wheel of a bike allowing the person to reach speeds of up to 20km/ph. It also has a device inside that tells you when your bike is on the move (once the app is downloaded) without you on it. You can then track where the bike is headed.
Great idea and could be very useful to some of the BS readers considering the level of theft these days.
The guys are currently looking for funding through KickStarter and have $216,000 (100,000 being their target) with 20 odd days left. Costs $550 which is a bit steep, but considering it tracks your bike (locks the wheel if stolen), lets you know if something is wrong with the wheel, charges your phone and powers lights all while giving your legs a rest…could be worth it…
