There is a single original thought here, too general. Prior art everywhere.
I like some gadgets on my bike

@mike I consider a hub dynamo (naafdynamo in Dutch) as a gadget. I like it a lot; if you compare it to a bottle dynamo; less friction and harder to vandalise.

So there are gadgets on my bike that make it more durable than the plain machanical version.

If the sensors of Apple will be built in to one of the wheel hubs or handlebars / hand grips (like transmissions have nowadays), they will have a save closure that will protect it from rough environments (sand, water) and vandalism.
