Iceberg Wood Bike Hanger

The last thing you need is yet another bike hanger to consider, but this one is too fantastic to not mention. Sure, it’s expensive (I don’t many people that would spend $600 on a bike rack) but just look at those crazy angles. It’s a show stopper. Each piece is handcrafted to show off the beauty of the wood grain from every viewing angle and an easy to mount system only needs 3 standard screws for installation.

Make Bike Rack

I have no idea why this retailer lists this bike rack for $50 more than the designer/manufacturer consult, but it’s good news that there’s the option to save some dollar bills. It’s a simple enough bike rack made of solid wood (walnut or maple), yet you won’t find it at your local bike supply shop- unless your bike supply shop is awesome, in which case some of us are a little jealous.

Oreflector

Nice! The Oreflector is a safety reflective badge for when you’re out and about at night. Whether you’re on your bike, walking your dog, or going for a run, its reflective material shines out to let cars and other passers-by know to steer clear of your soft self. Best of all, it’s not as bulky (or obnoxious) as a blinking bike light clipped on to clothing. Comes as a set of two badges- one mini and one maxi size.

Grip Rings

True story: I currently have skinned knees and 4 inch bruise on my chest. Why? Because I completely wiped out going down a parking garage when my left handlebar grip slipped off. Anyways, don’t be like me and have properly maintained grips and bar-ends on your bike. But do it with some style! These new GripRings from Spurcycle are individual silicone rings that make up a complete handlebar grip. Each set included 16 rings in the color pattern of your choice. Ride safe!

Faraday Porteur Bicycle

Clunky batteries, impractical, and just plain ugly are words that come to mind when the words “electric bicycle” come up. However, as urban bicycle ridership increases, bicycle manufacturers such as new start-up Farady are addressing these issues. Their flagship bicycle, the Porteur, is their first offering. It starts with a US-made steel frame with time-tested geometry. Safety and practicality are built-in with a removable front rack, integrated lights, wood fenders, and an accessory bag. The 8-speed internal hub is attached to an electric assist for those challenging hills or heavy grocery hauls. I had the pleasure of seeing this bike at last September’s Oregon Manifest, a handmade custom bicycle show. As it was my favorite bike at the show, I’m extremely pleased to see that it came to life from a mere show concept to market, something that rarely happens at these kinds of events.

The Bike Pump Keychain

This is a bike pump. On a keychain. How can that be? This little key chain attachment is the missing link between you and air compressors found throughout your city. Simply remove it from your key chain, connect it to one end of an air compressor at an auto shop (or fire station), and then connect the other end to your bike tire. Use the compressor’s gauge to fill to the correct PSI. Of course, this is really limited to cities where auto shops and fire stations are everywhere, but, hey, if you live in one of those cities, you’re in luck.

Halo LED Belt

“Be Seen, Be Safe” is the motto for San Francisco-based upstart company Halo. Their Halo Belt is a multipurpose light-up LED safety belt, providing high visibility for any night time activity. The red, green, or blue lights operate in two modes; solid and flashing. The battery life lasts up to 75 hours using standard CR2025 batteries. Halo blew their Kickstarter goal out of the water, but if you act quick you can still pre-order yours. Otherwise, stay tuned to their official site for updates and availability. Safety aside, the Halo Belt will be a big hit at your next Daft Punk party. Just sayin’.

Torch T1 Illuminated Bicycle Helmet

The Torch T1 helmet is an urban styled bicycle helmet with integrated lights. LEDs are projected onto the wide lenses which disperses the light across the entire surface, creating increased visibility and brighter light from wider viewing angles. The T1 is currently in a Kickstarter funding campaign. An $80 pledge will get you a helmet in red, black, or white, or for $100 you can nab yourself the special Midnight Edition, which is black with smoked lenses. Safety first!

Ridekick Electric Bicycle Trailer

Hmm… a detachable electric motor assist bicycle trailer. Quite brilliant, I’d say! How come no one has come up with this before? Having the motor transmission separate from the bicycle means not having to commit to an expensive, clunky, full-on electric bicycle, or a third-party add-on motor to your bike. You get to keep the bike you already own, and your bike stays just the way it is. Ride it solo for short jaunts round town, and fire up the Ridekick for longer rides and hauling some cargo. It’ll whiz you round on the bike lanes at a steady 19 mph, and get up to 12 miles on a full charge. A weather resistant storage case with lock keeps your groceries dry.  For those not convinced on the lead acid battery, a lithium-ion battery version is currently being developed, stay tuned to their website for the latest updates.

The Bike Valet

Another bike storage option? Yep, and this one is (dare I say it) a more refined option than the Cycloc. Angles, steel, leather… it’s nice, isn’t it? Designed by Stephen Tiller of Reclamation Art + Furniture, the Bike Valet currently has a Kickstarter campaign going to increase the level of production and manufacturing. For a pledge of $87 or more, you’ll receive a signed and numbered valet of your very own.
