The Bike Design Project-winning Denny on display in Las Vegas

In the Bike Design Project, which took place earlier this year, non-profit group Oregon Manifest invited five design firm/bike-builder teams representing five US cities to create their own take on the "ultimate urban commuter bike." Members of the public were then asked to vote on their favorite, with the winning prototype going on to be produced commercially by Fuji Bicycles. Last Friday we had a chance to get a close-up look at the winner, called the Denny, at Interbike in Las Vegas. Among its unique features is a handlebar that can be removed and used as a lock.  Read More

A cut-away view of a Procore-equipped tubeless tire

Back in February, we heard about a prototype Schwalbe mountain bike tire system that used a dual-chamber setup to both increase traction and minimize flats. The design has since been refined, and the commercial version of the product was officially unveiled last month. It’s called Procore, and we had a chance to see how it works at Interbike 2014.  Read More

Well, the popular Elf velomobile may be in for some competition. San Diego-based Virtue Cycle Solutions has developed a sort of electric cargo trike/pedal car type thing of its own, that it’s hoping to bring to production sometime soon. We had a chance to take a peek at the snazzy-looking prototype at Interbike 2014.  Read More

Inventor David Schwartz's son Daniel shows us the Flying Rider at Interbike

Remember the Flying Rider? It was a prototype bike we covered in June, in which the rider hung from a harness instead of sitting on a saddle. The idea was that the padded overhanging part of the frame would keep the rider’s back from bobbing up and down as they pedaled, allowing that blocked vertical motion to be converted into increased leverage on the pedals. Well, despite the fact that a number of our readers thought the whole thing was a little questionable, it’s now going into production.  Read More

The all-new A2B Entz is among the very first e-bikes to feature Continental's CONTI eBike ...

Electric bike specialist A2B introduced its latest creation at last month's Eurobike show. Named after the American inventor of the electromagnetic transmission, Justus B. Entz, the Entz e-bike benefits from a new, neatly integrated Continental e-drive that saves weight while promising a sharp electric-assisted ride.  Read More

An Occam Cycle prototype, in its hometown of Chicago

We've recently been hearing a lot about last-mile transit solutions – simple forms of transportation that people can use to travel short distances, going to and from train or bus stations. Compact folding bikes are a good example, as they can be carried on public transit vehicles. The Occam Cycle is optimized for that purpose, in that it has a very simple design ... just don't plan on sitting while you ride it.  Read More

The Lazer Cappuccino locks the quick release buckle of a helmet strap

It's not uncommon for recreational cyclists to stop at a sidewalk cafe after a long ride, and sit outside near their bike while sipping their drink. While such situations don't necessarily call for a high-security lock, it still helps to have something that keeps thieves from just grabbing the bike and running with it. That's precisely what the Lazer Cappuccino helmet lock is intended to do.  Read More

The Duo Cali Limited Edition

Although Caterham is certainly best known for its race cars, last year it branched into motorcycles and e-bikes. Continuing that trend towards simpler vehicles, this month the British company announced its new line of good ol’ human-powered Duo Cali bicycles. Besides sporting the Caterham name, the bikes look pretty darn sweet.  Read More

The Yerka Project is an attempt to create the 'world's first unstealable bike'

Billed as the "world's first unstealable bike," the Yerka Project is the work of three engineering students from Chile who have figured out how to make the lock an integral part of the frame.  Read More

Scott's ITD ProTec fabric incorporates strands of carbon fiber and a matrix of ceramic dot...

If you frequently ride a bike on asphalt, then it’s entirely possible that sooner or later you’re going to wipe out and end up with some nasty skin abrasions. While such "road rash" can occur just about anywhere on the body, the shoulders and hips are particularly prone to it, as they’re the parts of the body upon which cyclists quite often end up sliding across the road. In order to help protect those areas, Scott Sports has announced a new line of cycling clothing made to protect against road rash ... with a little help from ceramics and carbon fiber.  Read More
