The Velove Armadillo hauls cargo like a human-powered tractor trailer

Of all the electric cargo cycles we've seen, including the Urban Arrow and 2X4, the Velove Armadillo promises the most pedal-assist cargo hauling capability. The four-wheeled platform supports a big, ol' cargo box or semi-trailer on the rear, making the typical two-wheel grocery getter look downright undersized.

The most recent collaboration between the two brands has led to the Pinarello Dogma K8-S, which has been engineered to provide Team Sky’s cyclists with a smooth ride across rough terrain. Read More

Riding a stationary bicycle trainer can be boring, which is why Zwift and ebove were created. Both systems feature first-person videos of computer-animated cycling routes, that the user interacts with as they're cycling on the accompanying trainer. Now, Spain's Bkool has entered the picture. It's much like the other systems, although along with offering thousands of pre-made videos of real-world roads, it's also able to render them from scratch as the cyclist is riding. Read More
