Mission Bicycle Company Wants To Light Up The Road With Fork Lights

If you ride a bicycle, then chances are, you probably have one of those fancy LED lights attached for night riding. The thing about these lights is, it sometimes magically disappear (read: stolen) and if it doesn’t (get stolen), it will be just a jarring sight to an otherwise sleek bike. However, Mission Bicycle Company wants to change that. The San Francisco company wants to put an end to stolen lights and eyesore with a new bike design with integrated lighting.

Ridehunting Wants To Be The AirBnB For Bicycles And Other Sporting Gears

AirBnB has completely changed how we get a roof over our heads when traveling. It spurs a handful of peer-to-peer services, including bathroom (yes, even that!) and bicycles. And then now, there’s Ridehunting. Ridehunting is somewhat similar to now defunct Spinlister. I applaud the spirit of the folks behind Ridehunting despite what happened to Spinlister.

Oh, Look, Someone Made A Bicycle In The Shape Of Pi Symbol

You may have seen the an illustration of a bicycle based on the Pi symbol dreamed up by Malaysian artist, Yau Hoong-Tang somewhere. Now, meet the actual Pi Bike. Yes. That’s right.

This Is Bellcycles, The First Front-wheel Drive Bike Since 19th Century

You know bicycles? Wait. What am I talking about? Of course, everyone knows what a bicycle is, but the thing is, the bicycle you are about to see is like no other, well, at least not in the last 200 years. Meet Bellcycles, probably the only front-wheel drive bicycle since 19th century. For the uninitiated, when bicycle first came about, it had a front-wheel drive configuration, usually with a ridiculously large front wheel that was driven directly by a pair of pedals and sports a disproportionately small trailing wheel. It was a like a horse. No. Wait. I would say it was even more difficult to mount than a horse because of the insane height it had.

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

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.
