Chinese conglomerate LeEco just announced two smart bikes here at CES, both which run the company's customized BikeOS flavor of Android. First showcased at the big United States press event in October, not many details were made available, but LeEco has a bit more to share this week. Both bikes run LeEco's Android 6.0-based BikeOS software on a four-inch touchscreen.

But there's more, LeEco haven't only announced the smart bikes at CES, they're also investing in the electric auto startup Faraday Future, apart from the usual arsenal of tech products like smartphones, TV sets, and VR equipment. The bike is "powered" by an 11-speed one-by drivetrain with a wide-range cassette at the back and a single chain ring up front "eliminating two-derailleur coordinated shifting", and is equipped with lightweight brake sets featuring dual-pivot technology. The system is powered by a Snapdragon 420 processor and a rechargeable 6,000mAh li-ion battery. This cycle weighs 26.9 pounds and carries a 27.5-inch/650b diameter wheelset. The system provides turn-by-turn navigation tailored for bicycle riding from HERE Maps, online and offline music playback, walkie-talkie communication with other nearby compatible LeEco smart bikes, and ride logging.

The smart bikes will be shown at CES trade show this week in Las Vegas.

Conventional bicycles are undergoing a radical technological makeover that could change the way people ride and protect their bikes. That might sound unusual at first, but it's primarily there so you can easily and effortlessly talk to friends while you're both out on your LeEco bikes.

There's also a companion app (of course), allowing you to share your rides with others (not literally, as they're not tandem bikes) and review routes. All electronics on the bike get an IP54 certification of water resistance and also aids in third party ANT+ heart rate monitor and power sensors, which facilitate in meeting users fitness targets.

The latest Smart Road and Smart Mountain bikes new features can also be an outline of how bikes in the future can look like. The security feature helps in notifying the owner every time the alarm is activated and can also be tracked using the mobile app, in case of theft.
