There is increasing tech integration between your bike and your phone and your computer. There are sensors that allow you to take training to a whole new level. We've seen advancements in security - from GPS trackers that hide in your handlebars to locks that are convenient to carry but prepared to baffle the most experienced thief. Bike lights are getting brighter and smarter - some even coming with forward laser projections to make your presence known even when you're hanging out in someone's blindspot. Carbon is getting lighter and lighter, especially with the new addition of graphene on some models. While new carbon is making road bikes lighter and lighter, we're seeing the trend of wider and wider tires on bikes ready to hit the trails. And when we're talking about bike technology, we can't forget to mention electric bikes. A true cyclist of yesteryear may have looked down his nose at electric bikes, but today's ebike is something to behold - and something even the most devoted cyclist is tempted to turn to.
