Priority Bicycles aims to make bikes that can go thousands of miles without maintenance, through the use of durable parts like belt drives, pedal brakes, puncture-resistant tires and rustproof aluminum frames.
A bicycle with an adjustable carbon fiber frame. You can change its length as well as the angle of its front fork and seat tube to get the most comfortable ride. An app will help you figure out the right adjustments based on your body.
Mybelll’s speaker can blast out sounds up to 105dB, or about twice as loud as a typical metal bell. You can customize its horn by importing your own audio files. Its built-in 110 lumen LED lights are customizable as well.
A bicycle that’s as tough as it is smart. The Valour has a carbon fiber frame and various built-in devices and sensors. It can alert you of objects in your blind spot, provide turn-by-turn navigation, track your biking habits and more.
A clip-on cup holder that attaches to bicycle handlebars. Switch between the two rings depending on the size of your cup. You’ll still need to use a lid though. It also comes with a cube to help flatten it for storage.
The Lumen is an urban bicycle with a retro-reflective coating. By day its frame and fork appear to be dark gray, but by night they both glow white under direct light. You can also pledge $499++ for just the frame and fork.
An unorthodox tricycle, Halfbike is practically a pedal-powered Segway. To turn, just lean into the direction you want to go. Its size and weight makes it great for urban commuting. We wish it cost half as much as a bike though.
Chockful of diagrams and explanatory text, Richard Hallett’s visually impressive book provides an in-depth look at not only every detail about how modern bicycles function, but also how they came to be. Informative and beautiful.
