US$39,000 bike by Aston Martin and Factor Bikes

Yes, it comes with a hefty price tag of around US$39,000 for one bicycle. But we think it may just soon to be a iconic collector's piece. This limited edition ‘superbike’ called the ‘One-77 Cycle’ has been given the same name as the sports Aston Martin's most advance car model, the ‘One-77’.

Reasons why you should drop US$39,000 for this beauty of a bike:
1. It is set to be a collector's showpiece with only 77 such bikes being made.
2. Dubbed as ‘the world’s most technologically advanced road bicycle’ by the company, the bicycle features a data logging system that provides over ‘100 channels of performance feedback’ such as crank torque, leg power and crank force for both legs.
3. It is also able to provide other measurements such as acceleration, wasted leg power and rear wheel speed, and the traditional measurements like speed, heart rate and GPS location.
4. The One-77 Cycle is made with a carbon frame—that can be painted in seven exclusive Aston Martin colors—with ‘hand-stitched’ saddle and handlebars reflecting Aston Martin’s elegant craftsmanship.
5. It is beautifully engineered and elegantly designed.
6. Last but not least, life's too short to not be having the best money can buy.

The BMW 'i pedelec' is an electric bike that folds!

To coincide with the london opening of the first 'BMW i store', BMW presents the new 'BMW i pedelec' (pedal electric cycle) foldable concept bike.

Composed of lightweight aluminum and carbon fibre, the 3-speed bicycle is fitted with an electric motor that assists the rider's pedaling up to 16mph (25 km/hr), with a range of about 16-25 miles (25 - 40 km). two folded bikes are designed to fit in the trunk of the 'BMW i3 concept car'. The battery attains a full quick charge is 1.5 hours (4 hours on normal units), from either a wall outlet or a socket in the trunk of the 'i3'. When riding downhill, the electric hub motor functions as a generator, recuperating kinetic energy for the battery!

Bike tools designed to be hidden within handlebars

The cycle-targeted multitool by Ideacious is "designed to fit the majority of handlebars," and the entire thing bends like a snake so it can be shoved past the bend that occurs after the handle. Standard driver bits of your choosing can be tucked into each section of the InCOG Biketool, allowing you to customize the tool as needed. There's also a tire repair kit that fits into the other handle, and both kits are meant to lock into place by means of a proprietary driver to prevent thievery.
