THE BEST Bicycles

Foldylock

Mini BMX Stunts

Mini BMX Stunts

Who says you need an adult-sized bike to pull off BMX-style stunts? Ryan Taylor certainly doesn’t, as he takes to the ramps with his pint-sized Rocker BMX two-wheeler. Though it’s more like riding a skateboard than a bike.

MOBIC Folding Bicycles

MOBIC Folding Bicycles

MOBIC bicycles are made of lightweight aluminum and can be folded or unfolded in less than 10 seconds without the need for tools. They have 20″ wheels but their cushioned saddle is at the same height as a bike with 26″ wheels.

The Treehouse Elevator

The Treehouse Elevator

So you built yourself a 30-foot-tall treehouse. Now how will you get up there? Build a rope ladder? Shimmy up the tree? Feh. What are you, a caveman? You need an elevator like Ethan Schlussler built out of his old 20-speed bike.

Varibike

A bicycle with arm cranks. You can power the Varibike using your arms, your legs or both. It lets you go faster, tackle uphill climbs easier and experience a more intense workout. Also available as an indoor bike.

A Bicycle Built for Two

A Bicycle Built for Two

We’ve seen our fair share of tandem bicycles over the years, but most of them require that you ride one behind the other. Not so for this unique bike, which encourages togetherness for its two riders.

AutoBike

A bicycle with an automatic transmission. It has onboard sensors, a computer and a gear shifter that detect the terrain and tell the NuVinci N360 drivetrain when to shift gears. A dynamo powers the electronics as you pedal.

Rubbee Electric Bike Drive

Experiments in Speed

Experiments in Speed

(NSFW: Language) Having always felt inspired by the DIY attitude of the land speed freaks of the 60’s, Donhou Bicycles set out to build a bike with the express purpose of seeing just how fast they could go. That monster gear is so awesome.

Made of titanium and has a total of 24 tools in a compact package: 9 hex heads, 8 hex bolt wrenches, 2 screwdrivers, a T25 Torx head and 4 spoke keys. You can secure it under your bike seat so it’s always there when you need it.

Solé Micklish Bike

Solé Micklish Bike

A single-speed everyday cruiser, Solé’s Micklish bike is made from durable welded steel, with a matte black frame and gold accents. Wheels include Presta valves, and the riveted details on the Cionilli seat are spiffy. More colorways here.

WOOD.b Bicycle

Crafted from ash plywood and steel, we like the clean lines of the WOOD.b bicycle, a collaboration from Strasbourg-based BSG and Thibaut Malet. Available in September 2013.

Bicycle Frame Handle

An adjustable leather handle that sits just above your bicycle’s gears. It lets you carry your bike with your arm in a natural position that’s easier and much more comfortable than if you held your bike up by its top tube.

Norah the Jet Bike

Norah the Jet Bike

Colin Furze is known for making amped-up, but horribly dangerous vehicles. His latest creation? A bicycle with a ridiculous, fire-spewing jet propulsion system. Go figure his biggest problem was the tires.

Recycled Bike Part Chandeliers

If you’re near San Antonio, check out Joe O’Connell and Blessing Hancock’s Ballroom Luminoso, a series of six chandeliers made from custom structural steel, LEDs and recycled bicycle parts, installed in a cement underpass.

Plume Bicycle Mudguard

Plume Bicycle Mudguard

Plume is an easy to install mudguard that gets out of the way when you don’t need it. It behaves like a retractable tape measure. It stays unfurled even in rough terrain, yet it coils back with a gentle press of your finger.
