GoPro HERO actioncams are proving to be pretty popular with mountain bikers, although not everyone wants to wear one of the cameras on their helmet or chest. Riders can always mount it on their handlebars, although now Paul Components is offering an alternative – a GoPro mount that replaces the handlebar stem cap.  Read More

The Plume sits coiled up under the seat when the roads are dry

Although there are already plenty of good bicycle fenders out there, some people don’t like the way they rattle around, while others think that they detract from the looks of the bike. One option is to use something like the QuickFix, which is a fold-flat rear mudguard that attaches to the frame in seconds. The Plume, however, takes a different approach – it’s a mudguard that recoils like a metal tape measure when not in use.  Read More

The 4StrikeBike concept would see riders pedaling with both their legs and arms, for a mor...

Although cycling is a great form of cardiovascular and lower-body exercise, it doesn’t do a whole lot for the upper body. Over the years, various arm-and-leg-powered bikes have been developed, such as the Raxibo. Now, however, retired surgeon Lex van Stekelenburg is hoping to get his own such vehicle into production, in the form of the 4StrikeBike.  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

 ProNav PNN420 with the ProNav HGV Cyclist Alert software

With government encouragement, London is seeing more cyclists taking to the road, which is great for the environment and public health. Unfortunately, London’s roads were built for oxcarts, not bicycles, and certainly not cyclists and lorries at the same time. Sat nav company Navevo, in association with Transport for London (TLC), is trying to make this combination a bit safer with Navevo’s ProNav HGV Cyclist Alert software, which provides visual and audible warnings of junctions and stretches of road with heavy cycle traffic.  Read More

TomTom GPS watches will hit the market soon

TomTom is a name that sometimes gets lost in the GPS market amidst the Garmins and Magellans. The company is hoping that it will stand out against those names in a new segment of the market: fitness watches. Its new range of GPS-powered fitness monitors is designed to provide a sleeker look and fit while giving athletes all the information they need to perfect their training.  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

The Victorinox Swiss Army Bike Tool

Long before the Leatherman ever existed, the Swiss Army Knife became one of the first commercially-produced multi-tools. Now, no doubt aware of the increasing popularity of cycling-specific multi-tools, Victorinox has introduced its Swiss Army Bike Tool.  Read More

The creators of Revolights clip-on bicycle lights are now offering wheels with the lights ...

Revolights are an innovative form of bicycle lighting, in which rings of LEDs are clipped onto a bike’s existing rims, essentially turning the wheels into head- and tail-lights. Now that the Kickstarter-funded system has reached production, its creators have decided to offer something else – wheels with built-in Revolights.  Read More

The Nutter is a cycling multi-tool that's combined with a tire lever

Cyclists just love their multi-tools. Unfortunately, given the emphasis that’s placed on keeping these tools small (and thus short), they usually provide very little leverage for tightening and loosening bolts. The Nutter addresses that problem by combining a multi-tool with something that most cyclists will be carrying with them anyway – a tire lever.  Read More
