Carryyygum is touted as “the world’s smallest bicycle rack.” But it’s not actually a rack – it’s an elastic strap attached with rubberized hook-and-loop straps. You can mount it on most bike handlebars, and even on other parts of a bike’s frame to securely carry items on your ride.
Analog Motion’s AM1 is a lightweight and affordable pedal assist electric bicycle. Its standard parts, 200w motor and removable 24v battery add up to only 30lb. It has a range of 20mi and can help you go as fast as 30mph. It’s available in two frame designs.
The Aeroe BikePack makes it easy to carry small items on a bicycle, thanks to its quick lock and release mount. Each bag is waterproof, aerodynamic and comes in three sizes – 9L, 11L or 14L – while the mount comes in four variants: handlebar, fork, seat post and rear mount.
