The EMX bike is offered in Street and Cross (off-road) versions

About three years ago, in a cramped, musty garage in Graz, Austria, a handful of determined bike gear heads set to work on building an environmentally friendlier motocross-inspired e-bike. What they popped out three months later wasn't quite an FMX/motocross bike and wasn't quite a mountain bike. It was the all-electric EMX, a little bit of both.  Read More

A close view of the Siva Cycle Atom installed on a bicycle

Over the past several years, we’ve seen a number of bike-mounted products designed to charge the user’s phone using pedal power. Some of these have included the PedalPower+, the EcoXPower, Nokia’s Bicycle Charger Kit, and BioLogic ReeCharge Power Pack. One of the latest such devices, the Siva Cycle Atom, is hitting Kickstarter – and it's quite a bit more compact than most of the competition.  Read More

The wood-framed Sandwichbike is purchased flat-packed in a box, and is assembled by the bu...

Not long ago, we heard about how Dutch artist Jurgen Kuipers built a version of his Sawyer wooden-framed bicycle that could be sold flat-packed, like IKEA furniture. While that particular bike was intended as a one-off art piece, it turns out that we may soon be able to own a flat-packed wooden Dutch bike after all – the Sandwichbike, created by Amsterdam-based industrial design studio Bleijh, is now available for pre-order.  Read More

Instead of spokes, the Loopwheel uses three looped carbon composite springs that run from ...

When you have plenty of bicycle to work with, such as is the case with a mountain bike, it’s not such a big deal to design it with front and rear suspension. When the bicycle in question is a diminutive folding city bike, however, it gets a bit trickier. That’s why UK industrial designer Sam Pearce has created Loopwheels. Instead of relying on a suspension fork and rear shock, it lets the bike’s 20-inch wheels absorb the bumps.  Read More

Stromer ST1 pedal-assisted electric bike

Swiss manufacturer Stromer, an electric-bike brand of BMC, recently launched its ST1 pedal-assisted electric bike in the United States. The 500-watt ST1 was designed to blend function, versatility and style into a commuter-friendly bicycle.  Read More

The range of Yikebikes now ranges from US$2000 to US$4000

With big changes likely in the global transport infrastructure, the race is on to create the missing link – the smallest, lightest man-packable form of motorized transport yet known. Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen, BMW and Nissan have all shown vehicles in this area, but none have yet hit the market. The best-of-breed is currently the Yikebike and it announced today that it has further extended its lead, lightening its US$4,000 Carbon model from 11.5 kg to 11.2 kg and extending its range to 15 km (9.3 miles). There's also now a choice of Yikebikes with two cheaper versions at 12.7 kg ($3,000) and 14 kg ($2000).  Read More

An increasing number of bicycle manufacturers are proving that a bike doesn’t necessarily need to be built from metal, and cardboard, bamboo, and even plywood have all been used with apparent success. With this in mind, the latest unusual bicycle to pop-up on our radar is Woody Scorcher, by Denver-based Connor Wood Cycles – a wooden bike that aims to combine form and function into a rideable work of art.  Read More

The Sawyer is a lowrider cruiser bicycle, with a frame built from beech plywood

There was a time when wooden-framed bicycles were quite the oddity. While you still don’t see them much in stores, it’s now not that unusual to come across models such as the Lagomorph or Renovo’s duo bikes on the internet. The Sawyer, however, is a little different – it’s a lowrider cruiser bike, that’s quite obviously built from flat sheets of beech plywood.  Read More
