Just install an Apple air tag or other GPS tag somewhere on your bike. Like maybe taped up under the saddle or something.

I'd like square root, cube root, trig functions, and something to deal with logarithmic equations. If I need any more functions I'll let you know

A sleek not overly bulky stem with common bicycle threads or thru holes to mount brackets/accessory mounts with the need of traditional clamps & out front mounts. I've looked & nothing exists for the domane sl#.
