The Koala Bottle system uses magnets to hold its bottle in place on the user's bike

The standard bicycle water-bottle-and-cage system is pretty tried and trusted. That said, at one time or another, just about every cyclist has dropped their bottle on the road when they didn’t put it back in the cage properly ... or perhaps they’ve even wiped out, because they were distracted by trying to remove or replace the bottle. That’s why Anthony Goldman created the Koala Bottle system, which uses magnets to keep the bottle attached to the bike.  Read More

The InterLock bicycle lock/seatpost

People really don’t want to carry their bike locks around with them, do they? Over the past few years, we’ve seen locks that fit in a water bottle cage, get strapped to the top tube, or that are even worn as a belt. The InterLock’s approach is particularly interesting, however ... it’s integrated into its own seatpost.  Read More

The electric motor-powered Ridekick Child Trailer

Remember the Ridekick? It’s a little bicycle trailer that carries things like groceries, but that also provides a power boost to the bike towing it, thanks to its integrated electric motor. Well, now there’s a new version of the Ridekick that carries kids, too.  Read More

The Kranium cardboard-core bicycle helmet is now available for pre-order in the UK

Just last month, we told you about the Kranium – a prototype bicycle helmet with a core made from cardboard instead of the usual expanded foam. Well, we obviously weren’t the only ones impressed by it. German security devices manufacturer Abus has picked up the design, resulting in the Kranium AKS 1 helmet now being available in the UK.  Read More

The Convert, in dolly and trailer modes

If something is big and/or heavy enough to transport on a bicycle trailer, then it’s likely also unwieldy to carry by hand. Well, that’s why the Convert was created. It’s a bicycle trailer that can be converted into a cargo dolly.  Read More

The Bicymple – one of the more 'out-of-the-box' cycling products that we covered last year...

As many readers have no doubt noticed, we like bikes here at Gizmag. We particularly like truly unique cycling products, even when they may ultimately be a little too out there to garner much commercial success. With that in mind, here's a look at the ten bicycle-related innovations from the past year, that most made us say “Hmm, now that’s interesting.”  Read More

The Bag Buddy is a simple handlebar clamp designed to make carrying shopping bags on a bic...

The Bag Buddy is a simple device developed by industrial designer Nicholas Fjellberg Swerdlowe. He lives in Brooklyn, New York and regularly uses his bicycle to go grocery shopping – a practice that can be tricky if one's bike doesn't have racks or a basket. While Nicholas' product may not be a bicycle that turns into a shopping cart, it does reportedly make carrying bags on a bike safer and easier.  Read More

The bicymple looks to redesign the modern bicycle

Back in October, we first got a glimpse of a minimalist bicycle called the bicymple that looked to simplify the design of a product that was first brought to market in the late 1800's. To get his creation on the road, Josh Bechtel, has gone the crowdfunding route, and the project is already well on the way to meeting its funding goal after just a few days.  Read More

The BTPS Bike Tire Pressure System in use

It’s becoming more and more common for new cars to have air pressure sensors built into the wheels, so that drivers can receive real-time air pressure readings for each tire. So, why don’t bicycles have them? Well, perhaps they should ... and that’s the idea behind the BTPS Bike Tire Pressure System.  Read More

The Tiso system's control unit and front derailleur

As many bike nerds already know, electronic gear-shifting systems are currently being made by components manufacturers Shimano and Campagnolo. Last Wednesday, however, lesser-known Italian firm Tiso joined the fray by announcing the availability of its own 12-speed electronic system for road bikes. Unlike the other companies’ offerings, Tiso’s is wireless – partly.  Read More
