Duncans City Ride: How a Guy Can Look Good on a Bicycle in Toronto

A short while ago I posted about how we dress when biking in Toronto. I think we’re a pretty good looking bunch here in Toronto. Of course, when I tell people I’m a cyclist I can instantly see their eyes fog over as they picture me in full spandex. As we’ve seen from my post, […]

From the “Science and Tech” section of CTV.ca: Bamboo bicycles are hitting the road A group of friends from Colorado are trying to convince the world that a bicycle made from bamboo can perform as well or better than a traditional steel frame bike — and can help save the planet too. Unlike the vast […]

Wear It Proud Toronto: Bike-Related Apparel

I recently stumbled across WIPT (Wear it Proud Toronto) Clothing… a business all about bicycle friendly and fixed gear culture inspired apparel. Then, I read a little feature on them in the Spring issue of Dandyhorse. I got in touch with owner Steffan Kraiker and asked him to describe himself and WIPT, because it’s one […]

Stuff: Sweden’s V-Bike

A new design out of Sweden that combines small bike convenience with extra carrying capacity: Small balloon tires, a low-rider frame and lots of hauling attachments are the features Swedish cycling company Skeppshult felt would be most needed in a short-trip urban bike. … [It's] maneuverability and its front and back hauling attachments are pretty […]

Stuff: New Light Source Lasts 12+ Years without a Charge

At first I thought this new Litroenergy thingy from GloPaint had to be toxic to be able to glow for so long, but apparently it’s non-toxic and cheap. Perfect for helping light up you and your bike at night: “The Litrospheres are not effected by heat or cold, and are 5,000-pound crush resistant. They can […]

Stuff: Extreme Folding Bike

Folding Bikes are cool – take them on transit, stick them in small trunks or backseats… but what if you need them to fit somewhere smaller? We love folding bikes. Because they remove one of the arguments about taking up cycling; “I don’t have any room for a bicycle.” Here is a folding bike concept […]

Stuff: PackNGo Panniers

Well, this looks cool – bike panniers that turn into luggage: More luggage than bag, PakNgo is made from rigid polycarbonate, which helps fix the load securely to the back, and protects your stuff in the event of a close shave with a four-wheeler. Waterproof fabric keeps your stuff dry, and neatly detaches from the […]

Stuff: Glo Gloves: Gloves with Turn Signals!

This is a really cool product that I saw recently on BikeHugger: Glo gloves are simple, reflective over-gloves which will help you survive your night time rides. Here’s a good review by the Gadgeteer, but you won’t need too much convincing once you understand the value of the gloves. These are the same gloves you […]

Stuff White People Like: Bicycles

I came across this site after reading something about how it’s politically incorrect (does that even mean anything anymore?), but I gotta say, as a white person, I find the site hilarious and often quite accurate (such as recent posts about Oscar Parties and Threatening to Move to Canada). There’s a good post about bicycles […]

Stuff: Bike Storage, Made Swedish

I’m a pretty regular visitor to a site called ikeahacker, where people share IKEA products that they’ve hacked to be more useful or stylish or more appropriate to their home decor (because what could be more fun that taking a swedish fjaarngaard and turning it into something un-fjaarngaardish?) I’m happy to share with you a […]

Stuff: Stay Dry with RainGo

Here’s an interesting way to stay dry on wet and soggy days: This photo shows an old, way-old flyer for the Raingo Stay dry rain shield system. I’ve googled and can’t find this system, but it could inspire some SUB riders to develop their own. As much as I love Bettie, she’s a cold ride, […]
