The system includes a handlebar-mounted 3 1/2" color monitor and a camera that attaches to the seat post.

The Bicycle Rearview Camera attaches to the seat post of a bike, capturing a 75ยบ field of view of the road behind. The weather- and vibration-resistant device also features a circular set of red LEDs, which flash when the camera’s sensor detects low light conditions, to help make the cyclist more visible to traffic. A zip-tied cable that can accommodate any bike frame connects the camera to the 3 1/2″ color monitor, which provides a view of the rear so the cyclist can be aware of approaching vehicles and hazards.

A quick-release mechanism allows the monitor to be easily taken off the handlebars for charging using the AC adapter provided and its rechargeable battery works for up to 10 hours after a two-hour charge. The Bicycle Rearview Camera is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $179.95.
