This Sleek Tesla Battery-powered eBike Is foldable, Has Range Up To 45 Miles

Yesterday was my first time riding a shared bike and I did not have a good experience. Cycling is fun, but not so much when there are gradients. Bicycle lets you feel the slope that hardly took notice when walking or even running, and the fact that that particular bike’s tires were under pressure didn’t help much. Man, that was pure torture and at that point, I wished I had an electric bike or at least a pedal-assist bike. Anyways, that’s just some useless info that has probably nothing to do with the Aero Foldable Electric Bicycle by French company Weebot that we are looking at today. Aero is sleek new entrant to the eBike market that, from what we read, feels like a full-featured electric bicycle with the benefit of being portable. OK. Maybe not portable, but towable.

Hubless Bike Glows Like Tron’s Light Cycle, Heralds The Future Of Bicycle

You haven’t see flying cars zipping across the city’s sky and so, it shouldn’t surprise you that bicycles, electric or not, still look largely like your grandfather’s bicycle. However, that’s set to change with Cyclotron Bike Spokeless Smart Cycle. As the product name subtly hints, this pedal-assist bicycle has a little bit of Tron element to it – thanks to its hubless design with integrated lights. Granted, you can’t ride it flat on your stomach like the Light Cycle, but still, it is quite a sight to be hold and clearly, radically different from today’s bicycles. Cyclotron Bike goes beyond just looking futuristic; its build and drivetrain are pretty high-tech too, comprising of a space-grade composite construction of ultra lightweight carbon fiber frame with lightweight core structure.

4-wheel Power-assist Electric Bicycle Looks Like A Real Life Car Caricature

What you see here is a bicycle. No, really. It is a bicycle, an electric bicycle to be exact. Built by Swedish dude Mikael Kjellman, PopRide, as it is called, was born out of the desire to have the practicality of bicycle with the comfort and convenience of car. Actually, it is more like a pedal-powered kart because it has four wheels, but that argument is pretty irrelevant. The point is, this unique transportation gets you from point A to point B by means of your own leg power which provides some form of exercise much needed by urbanites. Continue reading 4-wheel Power-assist Electric Bicycle Looks Like A Real Life Car Caricature

The Vanilla Workshop Launches First Hand Built Ready-Made Road Bike

US-based bike maker, The Vanilla Workshop, has just make acquiring hand built road bikes without the traditional long wait. The first model under the outfit’s Speedvagen Ready-Made program is the OG-1 that promised to deliver the company’s very best workhorse race machine, designed, built, painted and assembled right in its Portland, Oregon workshop. If you know small batch, hand built bikes, you will know it takes forever to make and that’s not to mention the heart-stopping sticker that comes with each handcrafted machine. Well, not that the OG-1 is cheap (more on that later); it is not as a road bike, but it is, after all, hand built in the U.S.A.

BMW Pays Tribute To M2 Coupe With Limited Edition BMW Cruise M Bike

The BMW Cruise M Bike Limited Edition probably won’t fit in the trunk of your would be new ride, the BMW M2 Coupe, but if you ordered it (the M2) in its official color of Long Beach Blue metallic, then it will be a good fit – despite not fitting in the boot as mentioned. But hey, there’s always aesthetic-spoiling bicycle rack or roof rack, right? Yeah, those. Urghhh. Sorry, folks, we are not fans of any attachment on the exterior of a car that does not pushes the downforce down. So anyways, back to the bike. As the product name suggests, it is limited edition and it can be yours whether or not you drive a BMW M2 Coupe. Continue reading BMW Pays Tribute To M2 Coupe With Limited Edition BMW Cruise M Bike

Ono Bikes’ Archont Electro Bike Is Crazy Fast And Insanely Beautiful

Chopper-like bicycles have been around for ages, perhaps, born out as an alternative for the real deal. Whatever was the case, one thing for sure is, Ono Bike is going to change how you look at a chopper, be it a motorcycle or a bicycle, with its first wildly radical e-bike called Archont Electro. Stretching to nearly 3 meter long, Archont sports the familiar chopper easy ride silhouette, but that’s where the similarity ends. The bike is built around a tubular frame, smooth flowing and appropriately curved to achieve a minimal, skeletal look. Continue reading Ono Bikes’ Archont Electro Bike Is Crazy Fast And Insanely Beautiful

A Simple Wheel Change Will Turn This 34 lbs Electric Bike into a Regular Bike

Toronto-based electric bicycle maker is back, but this time round, there ain’t no beast. It newest product is a ‘regular’ electric bike, called EC1. Well, EC1 is not quite regular actually. It stands out as a ultra lightweight carbon fiber bike that weighs in at mere 34 lbs (or 15 kg) and for a limited time, can be yours to own for $1,039 CAD. That’s a heck of a bargain price for an electric bike and not to mention one that’s of carbon fiber construction. Continue reading A Simple Wheel Change Will Turn This 34 lbs Electric Bike into a Regular Bike

Daymak Introduces Beast D Electric Bicycle with Dual 500W Motor, Calls it an Electric ATV

When you are hell bent in venturing into the woods, an ATV appears to be the perfect option. But that’s assuming that the woods is generous enough to provide you the space your ATV needs, or you could go with a two-wheel electric all-terrain vehicle, like the Daymak The Beast D Off-Road Electric ATV that could get past the narrowest space imposed by the trees. But wait. Isn’t that the same Beast we saw on Kickstarter sometime last year? Yup. It sure is. But that was an electric bicycle, isn’t it? Again, yes, but the Canadian outfit’s new iteration is said to be a basher of sort and is destined for off-road use only and they are calling it the two-wheel all-terrain vehicle. Continue reading Daymak Introduces Beast D Electric Bicycle with Dual 500W Motor, Calls it an Electric ATV

Solé Bicycles Three Speed City Cruiser is as Minimalistic and Stylish as a Bicycle Can Gets

On contrary to belief, there are other types of bicycle apart from sports bike. I know right. These days, unless you are in Paris, you probably see more sports bike around and lets be honest, you don’t need a decal-covered futuristic bike when you just want to ride or hit up the convenience stores down the street and on the extreme end, fixie just won’t cut it. The Solé Bicycles Three Speed City Cruiser you see here sits somewhere between the two extremes. While it may look like a fixie, it is not, which is the beauty of it. No wait. It probably look better than most fixie. Continue reading Solé Bicycles Three Speed City Cruiser is as Minimalistic and Stylish as a Bicycle Can Gets
