The Jet Bike has a water bottle holder

Relaxation and vigorous exercise rarely coexist, but the FitWet Jet Bike brings them together – sort of. The contraption is a unique piece of exercise equipment that combines a stationary (underwater) bike with a personal jetted tub. Exercise just got a little more attractive.  Read More

The 2X2 Cycles Motorcycle Bicycle Rack lets you carry a bike on the back of your motorcycl...

If you really like your motorcycle, then perhaps you might be keen on the idea of using it as your one and only source of motorized transportation – for part of the year, at least. However, what happens if you’re also an avid cyclist, who sometimes needs to transport your bike? According to inventor, cyclist and motorbike rider Garrett Blake, all you need to do is buy his 2X2 Cycles Motorcycle Bicycle Rack.  Read More

The Bicymple resembles a unicycle with a front wheel and handlebars attached for stability

We recently featured the Fliz bike concept, which saw riders hanging from the frame of the bike and scooting along, rather than sitting astride the bike and pedaling as they do with conventional bicycles. This was an attempt to evolve the basic bike format, and the designers of Fliz aren't alone in their efforts. The Bicymple is, as its name suggests, an attempt to present the bicycle, simplified. And it's an ambition that, on first glance, looks to have been fulfilled.  Read More

Ergon's CF3 Pro Carbon suspension seatpost

Nobody likes getting a sore butt (or numb “other areas”) while cycling, yet a lot of cyclists also don’t want the added weight of a suspension seatpost – even a snazzy one like the BodyFloat. Well, those individuals may well be interested in Ergon Bike Ergonomics’ forthcoming CF3 Pro Carbon seatpost. Made from two parallel carbon fiber leaf springs, it actually weighs less than some conventional carbon seatposts.  Read More

The Dux Helm features integrated eyewear that is retractable, removable and replaceable

A full motorcycle-style visor might be overkill for cyclists, but built-in sun protection could certainly prove useful. Dux Helm is a Vancouver-based start-up that hit the scene earlier this year. Its first product is a little something it calls the "world's first bike helmet with retractable lens." While we know better than to accept those types of proclamations without reservation, we can say with confidence that the average bike helmet offers little more in the way of sun protection than a tiny, ineffective brim – if that. It certainly doesn't have a pair of retractable, removable and replaceable sunglasses.  Read More

The Click-Stand is one of two products that serve the same purpose as a kickstand, but are...

Of all the things that many serious road and mountain cyclists do not want on their bikes, kickstands have got to top the list ... they add weight, they rattle around, they’re one more place for dirt to collect and darn it, they’re just not cool. They are useful, however. Here’s a look at two products that offer the kickstand experience, without the kickstand.  Read More

BodyFloat works by levitating a rider over their bike and terrain via a patent-pending und...

Looking for a way to make his frequent bike journeys a little less arduous while assisting rural village development in Kenya and Uganda, veteran frame builder Paul Barkley found that existing spring seats just didn't offer the kind of action, adjustability, performance and comfort he was looking for, so he set about designing one that did. When he discovered that the first prototype worked much better than expected, he set about refining the design. After spending more than a year riding, testing, racing and tweaking, he teamed up with keen cyclist Charlie Heggem to form Cirrus Cycles and bring the BodyFloat to market. The seatpost suspension system is claimed to smooth out the terrain below by levitating the rider above the bike, resulting in a comfortable ride and allowing for a smooth, comfortable and efficient pedal stroke without bounce, flex or wasted energy.  Read More

The Freefold commuter travel system is said to maintain the shape of a business suit jacke...

If you're the kind of businessman who travels cheek to cheek with commuters on the metro or subway – or who cycles to work – then you'll know that by the time you change into your once-pristine suit at the office, it can look more like a "before" image from a steam iron commercial than something fit to impress the boss. Tony Higson's crusade against creases started with Suit Commute, and is now about to enter the next phase with Freefold.  Read More

Abus' Bordo folding locks use linked bars to secure the bike

The new Abus Bordo 6000 Ecolution is a folding bike lock with an environmental twist. At the end of the lock's usable life, it can be broken down and fully recycled. The lock makes the already eco-friendly activity of cycling that much friendlier.  Read More

Pioneer Electronics has announced its first step into the sports and health industry with ...

Pioneer Electronics has taken its first step into the world of performance cycling with the launch of its new Cyclocomputer and Pedaling Monitor at this year's Interbike show in Las Vegas. In addition to displaying speed, distance, time, power and cadence, the computer can also show exactly where power is lacking within the monitored pedaling rotation. The crank-based monitor system is designed to work with Shimano DURA-ACE crank sets and is made up of sensors and ANT+ wireless transmitters that feed data back to a paired computer.  Read More
