Should Love, but can’t: Vanhawks

I’m supposed to love stuff like this, but i can’t. This is BS. I’m sure its a good bike, but it’s just fancy bike.

Welcome to the world’s first connected cycling platform. Connect to the Valour through the Vanhawks app to make your commute safer, easier, and more enjoyable. Built in turn by turn directions allow you to focus on the road without worrying about missing your next turn. Every trip automatically track your ride metrics for fitness and adds to better Smart Navigation in the future. Ride the Vanhawks Valour and be a part of reshaping the urban commute

We don’t need a “connected cycling platform”. We’ve got Garmin, Strava and plenty of things in our phone. We don’t need a $2500 carbon commuter. There are thousands of alternatives that are just as good for 1/2 the price. Or, a 1/4 of the price.

I’d like to buy Grant Peterson two beers and have him give me his take on this thing.
