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

Dryve shields cyclists from raindrops – or at least, from the ones coming straight at them...

Nobody likes getting rained on while cycling, yet most of us probably aren’t quite ready to shell out for an enclosed velomobile, either. That’s why Swiss company Allnew recently introduced Dryve – it’s a flexible, detachable rain cover for bikes.  Read More

Sunstar is debuting the Virtus system at Eurobike 2014

Electric bikes are an intriguing transportation alternative, but four- and five-figure price tags are just too much for many people to spend on a limited-utility, low-range electric vehicle. That price looks even steeper for those that already have a perfectly functional pedal bicycle sitting at home. Japanese-Swiss company Sunstar hopes to make e-bikes a little cheaper and more versatile with its modular Virtus electric drive that transforms a regular bike into an e-bike, then detaches in minutes, effectively giving you two bikes in one.  Read More

The MC2, ready to cruise

Well, another day, and another oddball transforming bicycle from Eurobike 2014. Yesterday, we took a look at the telescoping lever-drive Hank from Korea’s Bygen. Today, it’s the MC2 from Singapore-based IDSG Engineering and Trading. Designed by IDSG’s Jing Che and Quoc Bao Dang, its hinged frame allows it to be set into eight different configurations.  Read More

The Hank Direct Bike offers an alternative to traditional folding bikes ... and to chains ...

Folding bicycles definitely have an advantage when it comes to easy toting and storage, although their chain presents a design challenge – it can’t just be folded sideways along with the frame, and there’s a risk that it will transfer gunk onto the rider’s clothing as they’re carrying the bike. Korean manufacturer Bygen has devised a solution, in the form of its Hank Direct Bike. Instead of a chain or belt drive, it has levers that transfer power from the pedals to the rear wheel.  Read More
