David Lupafya recently launched a Kickstarter for the Rogue C6, an intelligent carbon hybrid bike that combines the ultra-lightweight and responsive features of a road bike with the technology and comfort of a commuter. Weighing in at just 20.5 pounds, the Rogue C6 is poised to be the “first carbon commuter bike on the market” and is equipped with an oil free and waterproof carbon belt drive to cut down on maintenance. Two separate GPS devices are integrated into the bicycle: the first maps your routes and tracks your activity, and the second system will track and text you your bicycle’s location in the event that it is lost or stolen. The Rouge C6 also comes with integrated bike lights and is fitted with the high quality Shimano Alfine group set. If the Kickstarter is successful, the Rouge C6 will retail for $1,950.
