A hidden mount for your AirTag on your bike.
It helps track your bike, is hard to spot, and is made of sustainable materials in the USA.
This AirTag holder helps you track your bike in case of theft. It uses the Apple AirTag network to help you quickly locate your bicycle.
Where can you put an Air Tag on a bike?
The Bike Sight that holds the Apple AirTag is hidden under your water bottle cage. It's designed with sustainable materials that are plant-based or compostable.

Know where your bike is for peace of mind. Or track it down if it's stolen or not where it's supposed to be.
Maybe you use your bike to commute to work. Or you take the kids to school on the back of your ebike. Or run errands, ride for exercise, or just for fun. Your bicycle is an investment worth protecting. You may already follow best practices for locking up. Adding an AirTag to your bike can confirm its location to give you more peace of mind.
This project successfully was launched on Kickstarter!
Thank you to all of the Kickstarter backers who helped make this product happen.
Notes: The Air Tag is made by Apple and is required to track your bike. This product may work with a Tile Sticker 2022. The dimensions indicate that it will work, but this has not been physically confirmed.
A quick list of features:
- Mounts your AirTag on your bike
- Fits under your bike water bottle holder
- Works with Apple's FindMy network as a GPS tracker for anti-theft
- Hidden from view
- Factory 2nd, so it may not be as weatherproof as the regular Bike Sight
- May have cosmetic defects, and the gasket may not form a perfect seal, but guaranteed to mount your AirTag on your bike
Support Bike Communities
Funds from sales of the Bike Sight support kids on bikes. As a licensed cycling instructor, I work with our local bike coalitions to teach people how to ride. We also teach road safety skills to those who already ride. I volunteer with the Safe Routes to School program to lead our Bike Bus to school. It's a fun, safe, and eco-friendly way to travel to school
Your bike is worth protecting
This is the Bike Sight: an AirTag holder that helps you track your bike's location with your Apple iPhone. It's inexpensive, effective, well-hidden, and weather resistant. It’s designed for sustainability, and made in the USA.
Whether you use your bike to get to work, take the kids to school, run errands, exercise, or just for fun, your bicycle is an investment worth protecting. You may already follow best practices for locking up. Adding an AirTag to your bike can let you be sure of its location to give you more peace of mind.
Why build this?
Our family uses our bikes to get around, and more people are doing the same. We can get healthy exercise and take climate action by reducing our car trips. The proliferation of wonderful ebikes makes it even easier to take the bike instead of a car.
Your bike might be your family's primary mode of transport. And that can be a lot to lose if your bike is stolen. Using good locks and technique are important. Adding a tracker provides an extra layer of security and peace of mind.
GPS trackers previously could handle this task, but there were issues. They work like mini cell phones that send wireless data or SMS messages to broadcast their location. They are expensive and come with the monthly fees similar to a text or data plan.
Apple launched the AirTag in 2021. Any AirTag can be located by its owner through Apple’s Find My network. It uses a Bluetooth signal and the hundreds of millions of Apple devices around us. Each one helps crowdsource the geolocation of AirTags.
Designed for Sustainability
The outer shell of the Bike Sight is made from plant-based Professional PLA. It is stronger and stiffer than other comparable fossil-derived plastics. This Professional PLA blend is less brittle and 5x tougher than traditional PLA. After printing, the parts undergo an annealing process for strength and temperature stability.
A flexible plastic, PBAT, helps keep the AirTag protected and dry. PBAT biodegrades in soil with the presence of microbes. Many compostable bags are made of this material.
Long-lasting stainless steel screws attach the Bike Sight to your bike.
Shipping and packaging materials are paper-based and recyclable to further reduce landfill waste.
All of these aspects of the Bike Sight have been thoughtfully considered to minimize its environmental impact.
Made in the USA
There’s a notion that making things in America is expensive, but this isn’t always true.
Making the Bike Sight in-house allows for better process control. This can reduce delays and errors between parties and keep costs down.
It's optimized for 3D printing. This avoids the expensive and time-consuming setup and tooling associated with injection molding.
Support community biking
The Bike Sight will help deter bike theft and aid bike recovery. As consumers and backers, we sometimes can control where our money goes.
You might not want your money to go to a giant company. Funds raised for this project will be used directly to manufacture the Bike Sight, assemble kits, package, and ship. Proceeds will help fund bicycle advocacy efforts and related projects.
