By | January 25, 2012

Here’s what Ryan Van Duzer has to say about this journey: Duzer Duz Live.Love.Bike.

Speed Vest is not what you think

By | October 6, 2011

Initially I assumed a “speed vest” was a vest that magically made you speedier. Thankfully, the actual speed vest is much different.

Cannondale Concept City Bike

By | September 10, 2011

This is 2 years old… but it’s new to me. The locking handlebar is an interesting concept but wouldn’t work with Toronto post and ring racks. The rear rack is too ‘futury’ and also quite useless. Quaint video though. Student graduation project at the TU Delft for Cannondale Design: Wytze van Mansum | vanmansum.nl Film: [...]
