Three thousand hours of work, that’s what it took Fred Bertrand to customize this bike. Founder of Krugger Motorcycle was offered a BMW K1600 by BMW France to customize, as long as he kept its original 161 hp engine and the electronics in place. And that’s exactly what Krugger did – they’ve rebuilt it from the ground up, giving it a new hand-built aluminium and steel bodywork but keeping its engine and electronics untouched. The custom bike turned out to look like a monster, … continue reading
Canyon, one of the top bicycle manufacturers in Europe, and certainly the best company of its kind in Germany, is coming out with a new range of bikes, designed to help you beat the dreadful city traffic and reach your destination safely and in style. The concept of the urban bike is new to Canyon, somewhat detached from their award-winning mountain bikes. We say “somewhat” because the new designs still maintain a sporty touch, despite the fact that the targeted public is not the … continue reading
Like my grand father used to tell me : the best things in life are (maintenance) free, remember that! Well, that’s what Dave Weiner had in mind with his new concept : maintenance free bicycles that make cycling easy. I don’t know what he’s talking about, my biggest problem when cycling is that I have to actually move. I am not worried about my bicycle failing on me, never happened before but I am digressing. Dave’s maintenance free bicycles are supposedly built using … continue reading
It’s hard to admit that even though men love the sound and look of a V8, some of us have become a bit more environment conscious in the last few years and maybe, just maybe, we even looked into how much a Tesla car would cost. Luckily, for the most pretentious among you, we’ve found some good looking solutions in-between the greased up creations of traditional car manufacturers – really expensive bicycles. They run beautifully, sure, but in all honesty, these pieces are nothing more than trophies for rich collectors who need to fill that empty space in the garage next to their Ferraris. That doesn’t mean we can’t admire them, so take a look at these sexy wheels!
What do butchers and bicycles have in common, you may ask? You asked, I will tell you the truth folks : absolutely nothing. Well, maybe except this weird bicycle which is in fact a sort of tricycle with a garbage can in front of it. Got that? A three wheeled bicycle, made in Denmark/Copenhagen by a couple dudes who live in the meat district (hence the butchers) and supposed to improve our sad and pathetic lives. Because, you know, even if your life sucks, … continue reading

If you’re into sports and you enjoy riding your bicycle, you may find yourself pretty annoyed by those ugly and uncomfortable helmets, which are intended to protect your precious brain in case of an impact, or something like that. You know, when that nice dude opens the car door right in front of you, I bet it happened to you at least once, if you’re a die-hard biker like yours truly. Well, two Swedish chicks spent seven years (not in Tibet, by all … continue reading
If you’re the type of person who prefers getting around by bike instead of using a car, here’s something that might be of interest to you. The guys from People People (a design agency from Sweden) have recently brought back to life an old design seen on the Swedish postal bikes through their simple, but great looking Spiran (Scepter) bike. This slim looking fellow comes as an alternative for the older Kronan (Crown) bike, which is inspired by the classic military bikes from Sweden … continue reading
