This Bike Frame Weighs Less Than Six Sticks Of Butter

You’ll never see the SuperSix EVO Black Inc on the street. You probably won’t even see it in a local road race. This is Cannondale’s chef d’Ĺ“uvre, built with only the best components, top to bottom — it’s a $US13,000 piece of carbon ridden by the fastest humans on Earth.


How A Country That Has No New Bike Parts Fixes Its Bicycles

What happens if you live in Cuba and your bike breaks down? It’s not like you can hop on the Internet and get two day shipping for a new bike. In fact, it’s pretty much impossible to score new bike parts. What you have to do is find a guy who knows another guy who might have some parts of the part you need.


Carbon Fibre-Reinforced Clothing Will Protect Cyclists From Road Rash

Donning a full suit of motorcycle leathers for your morning bike ride to work is probably overkill, but cyclists can still be subjected to road rash should they fall while wearing less-than-protective gear.

Here’s kind of a dirty secret about bike share: Bikes don’t end up distributed evenly across the system, so most cities use trucks and trailers to shuffle the bikes around to the kiosks where they’re needed most at different times of day. Turns out it requires a complicated algorithm to determine exactly when and where to move them.

If kids aren’t breaking or destroying their things, they’re outgrowing them faster than you can replace them. That’s why stretchy clothes that keep up with their growth spurts are a good idea, as is this clever balance bike from Doppelganger with an adjustable frame that gets taller as your kids do.


NYC District Attorney Seriously Subpoenas Parody Bike Twitter Account

For reasons that still aren’t entirely clear, in July someone swapped in bleached-out US flags on the Brooklyn Bridge. Almost immediately, Twitter parody @BicycleLobby claimed responsibility. Yesterday, according to the New York Times, the Manhattan district attorney’s office subpoenaed the anonymous account.


A Flippable Frame Lets This Bike Grow With Your Kids

As your child transitions from a balance bike — where they use their feet against the ground for propulsion — to a larger pedal version, it usually means it’s time for an upgrade. But not with Andreas Bhend’s clever Miilo. The bike’s frame is reversible, allowing it to be easily disassembled and flipped, elevating the seat and making room for a set of pedals beneath.
