In theory electric bicycles sound like a great idea, but so far, most designs leave a lot to be desired. The Grace e-bike however looks really good. Mean even. This beast will do 28-mph and travel over 30 miles on a 1-hour charge. Power comes from Li-Ion batteries hidden in the frame and an efficient little electric motor built into the rear wheel.
Your golf course manners & attire should show respect for the game’s traditions. But when it comes to the hardgoods – like clubs, balls and shoes – forget tradition and trust technology. Like these Nike Lunar Control spikes. They’re made of waterproof full grain saddle leather and feature Nike’s Lunarlon cushioning in the heel. Good for 36 … if you are.
Rapha rescued the cyclists who want function from their road wear instead of logo-covered spandex. And, they’ve gained quite a following with their class act.

These bikes are ultra-limited releases, dipped in a Rapha color palette. There’s a city bike, a continental, a road-sport and a race bike … do not lag.

You need a new bike. Maybe you don’t need one designed for military paratroopers dropped into battle, but this is it. And if it’s burly enough for combat, it’s strong enough for your weekend jaunts down the nature trail. What is truly unique about this 24-speed bike is that it folds in half by simply popping the quick-release lever. In just 20 seconds, without the use of tools, you can fold it up & throw it in the trunk of your car. No bike rack needed.
It looks like a regular old Schwinn, but no … not quite. Winner of the 2010 Eurobike Gold Award in Design, the Vestige is the first bike to feature a biodegradable frame made from natural flax fibers. Similar to carbon fiber frames, the flax material is rigid yet dampens road vibration. The semi-translucent frame tubes feature an internal lighting system showing off the bike’s innovative materials. Bright, right?
It’s a romantic thought isn’t? Bike camping. Just you and the bros, pedaling out into the wild; everything you need strapped to the bike. But here’s the thing, you’ll want ultralight gear and you definitely don’t want to share a tent with your fellow spandexters. This tent addresses both needs. Instead of poles, it uses your bike’s front wheel for structure creating a nice private sleep chamber to rest your weary ass.
