With a 600-watt electric motor, this bike goes 40 – almost as fast as a Prius. But, you can take this to cooler places than the HOV lane. With massive 8-inch wide tires, you can rip down the beach or up a mountain bike single-track, where the 14-speed gearing will help you climb. Ten inches of travel in the front suspension means you can also stick some lofty drops. Try that in a Prius and you’ll be bumming.
Yes you can. Cycling isn’t all about carbon fiber and shaved legs. Those who agree will love this all-leather can holder cage. Let the sprocket-jocks eat goo, you deserve something better.

Practical beauty. This handcrafted bike rack & shelf is smart. It saves space by getting your bike up off the floor – the shelf holds bike gear or a plant or whatever. It also serves as a stunning display, if you happen to have a magical bike that you want others to ogle at without knocking over. Made of woods like Chestnut and Ash, the rack is mounted to a sturdy metal tube frame.
This is how a collab is supposed to work. Two legacy brands sharing a common sense, get together, and something sick goes down. Vans originals have been the same since ’66 and need no update. Same goes for the classic Brooks saddle. The two teamed-up to create a limited edition combo kit: A pair of Brooks-inspired leather Vans & a Van’s-inspired etched leather Brooks saddle. Crypto!

Leave it to the Italians to create a work of art like this.

Not just a pretty machine – the carbon fiber construction & performance mechanics make this a true training tool. It’s unique design employs sophisticated engineering for ease of use and comfort.

Don’t risk the drive home, ride your bike to the rave. Illuminated Cyglo tires will make your trip even safer. With LED bulbs embedded deep into the tread, the glowing lights add an element of safety to nighttime riding. Motion sensors in the tires turn the light on, so as soon as you’re pedaling, you have running lights. And even if you couldn’t care less about the safety aspect of the Cyglo tires, they look super cool, especially on the way home from the rave.
Riding a bike as basic transportation is something foreign to the American mindset. Most of us think of biking in terms of recreation, exercise or something we did as “kids.” Obesity, gas prices and the level of CO2 in the air are starting to change things up. Linus Bikes are on to it. Styled after bikes from the 50s & 60s, their line of steel-framed, upright cycles are simple and functional: a perfectly healthy way for getting from point A to point B.
Even though the hipsters just found out, real cyclists have known for generations there’s nothing more legit than a Brooks saddle.

Think of something original & keep those hipsters guessing, “Whoa, that’s cool. Wait, is it?”
