Wood is good, or at least that’s what Waldmeister Bikes wants you to believe; beyond the swoopy profile, each bicycle frame is made with PEFC-certified woods from a German forest.
At often 10x the cost of most premium bicycles, KGS Bikes’ primary selling point is their personalized philosophy: bikes are custom “fitted” down to the millimeter for each customer.
Cyclecide’s Bike Rodeo mixes counterculture, bicycle riders, mechanics and the errant psychotic clown; they create pedal powered monstrosities and let the public get their ride on.
We’ve seen several folding bicycles, but the Bergmonch is the first to fold into a functional backpack; at only 9.5 kilograms, it can be lugged around like a conventional bag.
With a vibration dampening suspension, semi-slick tires and a double-tube aluminum frame, SwissBike’s TX Commuter is great for city slickers; it folds up to 36″x28″x12″ in under 30 seconds.
Denim brand G-STAR and Cannondale’s limited edition RAW Cannondale mixes retro/military style with a hand-crafted aluminum frame and Shimano shifters. Thanks, Arjan!
NYC bike culture comes alive with this video from the New York Bike Dreams photo exhibit in Tokyo; the tricks are off the cuff, with nothing sped up or slowed down. Thanks, Brian!
The lesser known spin-off of MTV’s car mod show, this Pimp My Bike tee is a nod to our two-wheeled bros with calves of steel; how about a pair of 10″ LCDs to go with your fixie?
Bicyclists need not be excluded from the ski slopes with Ktrak’s Rear Drive Kit; it’ll bolt onto your existing mountain bike frame, adding a ski up front and a track system behind.
Wear and tear is a fact of life for both mountain and urban bicyclists; Topeak’s popular Alien II is a Swiss Army knife for riders, with 26 hardened steel tools in a break-apart body.
As ridiculous as it looks, this Walking Bike by Max Knight actually works; it’ll get you around town with kicks to spare, although its bumpy ride is ill advised for hemorrhoid sufferers.
All we can say is wow: Kevin of Ft. Wayne is a handlebar virtuoso, riding his bike in this Guitar Hero viral marketing video; the song is The Living End’s Prisoner of Society.
With tiny wheels and an even tinier seat, we’re not 100% convinced that A-bike is for us, but its urban riders swear by it: it folds up in only 10 seconds and weighs about 13 pounds.
Your friends may laugh at you, but Focus Designs’ Self-Balancing Unicycle is like a Segway with one wheel; it takes about two hours to learn and is light enough to carry around.
A motorless version of the Brudeli Leanster, GBO Design’s CarvX recumbent bicycle is just a concept for now. It’ll have an aluminum frame, hydraulic disc brakes and a 14 speed Rohloff hub.
Delta 7 Sport’s Ascend mountain bike features an “IsoTruss” lattice that isn’t just for show; it’s made with carbon fiber and kevlar, allowing for a frame that weighs just 1.8 lbs.
For fixie riders who demand technology along with speed, we suggest Trek Bikes’ District. It sports an ultra light Gates C-Drive carbon composite belt which is grease and lube-free.
We like Areaware’s Strida bicycle for what it doesn’t do: it won’t take up a lot of space because it folds away, and it won’t soil your clothes with grease thanks to its clean Kevlar belt.
