Crowdfunding: Five innovative bicycle projects looking for funding

We share 5 up-and-coming creative bicycle-related projects looking for funding

The bike thief is the arch nemesis of cyclists, so it’s great to see that bike lock technology is developing, utilising the spread of smartphone use.

Lock8’s new security device is a smartphone-controlled lock that includes GPS tracking. It also includes sensors that trigger alarms and notifications for just about any kind of theft attempt. A smart cable warns if someone tries a bolt cutter; an accelerometer can detect drills and saws, and there’s even a temperature sensor to fend off blowtorches.
