SHYSPY's Kickstarter Campaign Nears Final Hours

Now's your chance to get in on the ground floor of what could be the next big thing in bike security: SHYSPY. With a Kickstarter campaign wrapping up in less than 36 hours, SHYSPY is trying to bring to market trackers that integrate into bike frames, where they will be invisible to would-be thieves.

SHYSPY will offer two versions of the tracker, one that uses GPS technology and a lower-cost model that relies instead on less accurate GSM. Both will fit inside a seat tube, as shown in the installation video.

The device's anti-theft features include (1) a built-in motion sensor that can alert a cyclist to a bike's movement and (2) the ability to deliver tracking data to a desktop or mobile device.

The video below gives a concise introduction to the SHYSPY product, and much more information—including plans to possibly implement an audible alarm—is provided on the Kickstarter page.
