Lets face it bikes are expensive these days and a decent bike is around a grand and higher...

hmmmm I feel a dragons den appearance in place here. I present to you.

The worlds first E90post ( uk section mind) commemorative special edition nothing to do with BMW's, self powered and highly ethical fair trade friendly cycle based tracker unit.

i've thought about looking into it before, my idea was to conceal it within a bottom bracket as if we're honest the majority of bike thieves dont have the knowledge to remove it, or obviously it could be within the tubing but if it stops working theres no way to fix it then.

solar powered would be a no go but kinetic could work.
