Australia's New Bosch eBikes Are A Commuter's Dream

eBikes have always been tempting, but a hodgepodge of Australian legislation in the past has meant that local offerings have been built from retrofitted, inefficient and legally questionable parts. New models are flooding into Australia now that Bosch has a local service centre for anyone brave enough to jump on a battery-powered electric bike.


How Did The Bicycle Evolve?

The quest for a human powered, stable, fast and energy efficient vehicle has taken us a long way. Let’s see how it all started.


Trek Moves Bicycle Sales Online

In a first for a big bicycle brand, Trek is moving its sales online. And it’s claimed to be a move that won’t just benefit consumers, but your local bicycle shop, too.


A Breathalyser Bike Lock Makes You Blow Clean Before Cycling

You might chuckle at the idea of a drunk cyclist, but since they often share the road with motorists, they can be just as dangerous as an inebriated driver. So if you don’t trust yourself to leave your bike locked up after having one too many, this bike lock will only open after you use its built-in breathalyser.


This Downhill Bike Race On A Glacier Is So Insane That Everyone Crashes

Video: You know you’re in some deep sludge of brown goo when a bike race starts and pretty much everyone around you immediately loses control and crashes. That’s what happens when you ride a bike downhill on a glacier. That’s what happens when you ride the Megavalanche race.


The First Quadruple Backflip On A Bicycle Tests The Laws Of Physics

Video: This just doesn’t seem possible. Even after watching Jed Mildon nail the world’s first ever BMX quadruple backflip, it doesn’t seem like it could happen in real life here on Earth. And that’s pretty much true! The video below shows the bad falls and crashes and body slamming it took to get this stunt down and it’s a miracle he was able to pull it off.


What It's Like To Ride This Incredible E-Bike At 60km/h

What happens if you put a 4000W motor — nearly five horsepower — on a bicycle built of strong, lightweight materials? I’ll tell you: pure craziness, heart-filling joy, and power pedalling at high speeds you could only dream of before.


The Bike Tricks In This Video Are Impossibly Fun To See

Video: Road bikes are meant for the road… but that’s too limiting and not fun at all. What’s really fun is seeing Italian cyclist Vittorio Brumotti freestyle all over anything that can remotely come close to being ridden on with his road bike. Like highway rails next to the ocean or narrow hand rails or an aeroplane graveyard or inside an aeroplane and more.


Shimano XTR Di2 Review: Can Electronic Shifters Make Bicycles Faster?

Shimano is bringing its electronically-actuated Di2 shifter technology to mountain bikes, claiming increased reliability, faster shift speeds and improved man-machine interface. Can it really make riding a bicycle easier? We spent a day on the trail to find out.


Can An Olympic Cyclist Cycle Hard Enough To Toast Bread?

It’s an easy joke to say that you can power your electronics by just getting on a hamster wheel or riding a bike but the truth is, it’s really, really tough to do in real time. And we’re not even Olympic athletes. German track cyclist Robert Förstemann is and even with his watermelon-sized thighs, he said his legs “hurts hard” and that it’s “fucking hard” to power up a toaster.
