Kids Will Always Have A Comfy Ride On This Curvy Plywood Balance Bike

When you’re teaching a kid how to ride a bike, you don’t really want it cluttered with distractions that make it hard for them to master the most important part: balancing on two wheels. That’s why many consider a balance bike to be a great introductory ride, and the ZumZum looks to be about as simple as a bike could possibly get.


This Is The Bike Tech Of The Future

When you think about it, bikes haven’t changed a whole lot over the years. It’s a chain attached to a rear wheel with a human atop on a seat, powering the whole contraption forward with their legs. We’ve tried to augment the analogue biking experience for years to get around our cities, but the future of cycling is digital. Here’s how you’ll ride safer, smarter and faster thanks to the futuristic tech coming to bikes of all shapes and sizes.


A Tricycle That Leans And Rides More Like A Two-Wheeled Bike

Learning how to ride a two-wheeled bike is one of the biggest challenges a kid can face, and starting off on a tricycle doesn’t make it any easier since it’s a different riding experience — but why should it be?

This Man Rode A Rocket Bicycle 207 MPH

When you think of fast rides, bicycles usually don’t spring to mind, at least not before souped-up race cars and sleek motorcycles. Watching Francois Gissy speed over 207 miles per hour on a bicycle with a rocket strapped to it may change that.


The Diavel Titanium Is Today's Sleek, Sexy And Super-Exclusive Motorbike

Limited edition motorcycles are all the rage these days and while Ducati’s freshly-announced Diavel Titanium isn’t as exclusive as Ronin Motor Works’ pride and joy, it’s only going to have a production run of 500… which means it’s still going to be a rare pick up. What makes it so special, other than its planned scarcity? Well, it has specs, you see.


Citi Bike Is Finally Being Treated Like Public Transport

After months of troubles reported by New York City’s bikeshare, it seems that Citi Bike has finally charted a path towards success. It’s going to be more expensive, but will offer improved service and more bikes.
