    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:

    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.

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
