Titanium-framed bicycles and Samurai warriors are both things that a lot of people admire. So, what happens when you build an example of the former that's inspired by the latter?

Bicycles made from bamboo stalks are becoming increasingly common, but Greensboro, Alabama’s HERObike takes a different approach to using the material. At last year’s North American Handmade Bicycle Show, we saw some HERObike frames sporting carbon-fiber-reinforced tubes made from woven bamboo. At this year's show, the company was showing off its upcoming Bamboost e-bike, which features a composite frame that adds balsa wood and 3D-printed parts to the mix.  Read More

Because they’re made in small batches by hand, most of the bikes at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show are ... well, they ain’t cheap. One in particular, the Italian-made Sarto 18K, had a price tag of US$27,000 when you could still get one. What would you get for that price? Gold and crocodile skin, for starters.  Read More

The MoDe:Me and MoDe:Pro are the result of a competition run amongst the company's employees with the aim of finding e-bike designs that make a connected journey more efficient, safer, healthier and less stressful.  Read More

Locking up the Yerka

Last September we first heard about the one-off Yerka Project bike, which was designed by three engineering students in Chile. Its clever feature was a frame that partially came apart to act as a lock. That way, any thief tempted to break its lock would be ruining the very bike they wanted, too. Now, its creators are attempting to bring it to market via an Indiegogo campaign.  Read More

Kryptonite's Security WheelNutz

Wheel theft is always a risk when leaving a nice bike parked in an urban environment. Cyclists can do things like removing the front wheel and locking it to the frame and rear wheel, or carrying multiple locks.
