I’ve come across some pretty cool looking bicycle technologies recently. Almost all of these I would love to try out for a while to see if they are actually worthy or not.
Derailleurs have been around for a long time, and the technology hasn’t really changed in a long time. This one is interesting in that it is electronic. No more cables that stretch over time, you just need to worry about battery life. Read more about them here.
It almost looks normal, but this bike frame is actually made from polypropolene and is designed to be recyclable. A good option for a town bike.
A minimalist design to say the least. Using hubless and spokeless wheels, and a special drive system, this bike would certainly turn some heads while you were riding down the street.
Belt drives aren’t that new, but they seem like a great idea for a town bike. This wouldn’t work on a dual suspension bike like my Bullit, but it would definitely work on a hardtail.
Some people don’t want to wear helmets since they aren’t necessarily a fashion statement. But what if they could be? Add a slip-on cover to your helmet and away you go.
