So where does the AIM (Adjustment In Motion), stem fit in?

Dish & DU/ER Rethink Casual and Performance Clothing with new No-Sweat Pant

dish and duer no sweat pant nature2x fabric (4)

If you ride bikes, there is a good chance you’re active in other areas of your life as well. Loosely, that probably translates to riding bikes, rock climbing, running through the city, and other pursuits that make you perspire, but you don’t always have the chance to change into workout gear.

That lifestyle coined athleisure by dish & DU/ER is exactly the inspiration behind their No-Sweat pant. They’re work out pants, sweat pants, running pants, work pants, cycling, and even dress pants all in one…

Levicle Hopes to Scoot You to Work like a Kid Racing a Shopping Cart


Somewhere in the gray area between a city bike and a razor scooter lies what inventor/entrepreneur Tom Mackenzie calls the Levicle. Essentially a sit on top scooter with a 12″ front wheel, it claims to blend bike and scooter into something new that will help commuters zip from the train station to the office, speeding up their commute, and having fun at the same time. Scoot past the break to hear a bit more about how the and find out how you can get one in time for the holidays…

2016 SR Suntour Durolux R2C2 enduro mountain bike suspension fork tech details Italian Trash-3

We had some fantastic items come across our desk this week as well as some meaningful fundraisers for a couple of pretty awesome guys that need our help. From the best looking, as well as the strangest looking e-bikes from Italjet and Gi FlyBike, new fork and technology from Suntour, what Canfield Bros just whipped up, and a glimpse at Boeing’s new “lightest materiel” which could make its way down to our more grounded needs.

Take a step back in time to take a gander at what we brought you last week, because if my calculations are correct, you’re about to see some serious sh……


Gi FlyBike: World’s First Full Size Smart E-Bike that Folds in One Second…. and is Maintenance Free?

Fotos 15-09-2015-20

Every so often we drop in with something ridiculous just to break up the stream of carbon enduro fat gravel e-bike porn, and upon first glance at this gem, I thought it might fit somewhere in my “Redunkulist.” However, after reading into it and considering the design, features, and the population that the Gi FlyBike is aimed at, my urge to chuckle through the keyboard started to dwindle. The Gi FlyBike is an electric-assist, smart, maintenance-free, folding aluminum bicycle with full size, 26” wheels created for urban commuting. And though maintenance free sounds far fetched, it’s kinda true.

Skip past the fold to see what we really think of this different take on an urban assault bike….


Packpod Keeps You from Putting your Camera at Stake by Staking it into the ground… or Anything for that Matter


Have you ever tried to construct something along the trail to get “that shot” putting your phone, GoPro, or DSLR at risk? Packpod is a device that looks like something from a camera store that fell into the rock climbing parts bin at the Outdoor Store next door….. and the offspring is kinda cool! It’s a tripod that can be laid onto or stuck into just about anything.

Shoot past the break to see if this might be your next best camera toting friend…..


See.Sense Icon Powers Up for Connected Smart Light That’s Also Super Bright

see sense icon smart bike light (1)

If you go by all of the recent products, it seems that most of our previous technology was pretty dumb. Now there are smart bikes, smart locks, and even smart lights. Lights like the new See.Sense Icon. Truthfully, this should come as no surprise given the fact that Northern Ireland based See.Sense has already produced one smart light – the See.Sense 2.0.

So how does the new Icon improve on the original 2.0? For starters with double the LEDs it’s brighter, but that’s just the beginning…
