Question Hidden GPS live tracker in barends or a GPS Bell etc ?

This is my second day looking at GPS solution for my kickbike (If it gets stolen i want to get it back)
Electric Kickbike ( Cross MAX )


And since i alredy use a BBB Tube extender


I cant use this GPS


And since i have nothing to attach a lamp to, not even a saddle (seatpost) i cant use this GPS


And since i have a battery at my water bottle place i cant use anything like this


So the only place i can place a GPS on is on the inside of the grips (barends) or a bell/horn etc.. But i can't find anything like that. That uses GSM network at all (Mobile card)

The closest i came is this:
https://borealbikes.com/smrtgrips/

But that dosen't use gsm (mobile card etc)

Why not just use your phone?

You could always add a 2nd bottle cage holder, and use the GPS you linked to. It would give you the added benefit of having a bottle cage too. There are various designs out there, see Klickfix BOTTLEfix for example:

Sorry for the lack of direct link, their site makes direct linking difficult. Just use their product search for BOTTLEfix. I see the new version comes with a fancy QR feature that is probably not ideal in this case, but the older version has no QR.
