IF-Mode Folding Bike

Sunday June 14, 2009

Another folding bike in development.  Found this one whilst browsing Treehugger’s bike posts.  It’s a clean looking bike with a great action.  Not one of the smallest folding bikes but it’s pretty impressive and easier to store than a non-folder – it’s a ‘full size bike’ (26″).

Oh, and it’ll set you back around 1,368 GBP / 2,250USD.

Taga – Something A Little Different

Sunday May 10, 2009

Treehugger is one of my regular daily visits, one of the few sites I return to daily to see what’s happening in the world and this morning I found this bike.

A baby-carrying trike from Taga in the Netherlands, it is a “…multifunctional urban vehicle, uniquely designed to suit the needs of today’s parents and children. Taga combines the benefits of a premium stroller and carrier bicycle to create a new transportation modality“.

It’s not cheap at 1,800 Euros (~£1,600) but it does look pretty impressive.

Lots of photos and further information on the Taga website.

The Brightest of Bikes

Sunday February 8, 2009

This hi-vis bike is the brain-child of Flickr user mandiberg.  He’s covered the bike in Scotchlight 680 retro-reflective vinyl.

In daylight, the bike appears black but at night under the beam of a car’s headlights (or a camera flash as in the photo) the bike shines brightly.

Cyclists are well aware of the need to fit front and rear lights and reflectors, but we are vulnerable from the sides – this clearly helps us in that area!

Treehugger has also covered this bike in their post “Bike is obonoxiously [sic] bright at night“.
