Of all of the different styles of bikes, folding bikes may be the most misunderstood. What are the little wheels like? Will the bike fit in my trunk? In my apartment? What’s it like to live with on a daily basis? These are all worthy questions and seem to be the motivation behind Brompton’s #OnTheRoad tour.

Already underway, Brompton is starting out with the East coast with 12 different cities on the calendar. Those who register ahead of time for the demo tour can drop by the event, pick up a Brompton folder, and keep it for an entire 24 hours free of charge. This should allow potential customers to take it past the typical parking lot test ride and actually see what it’s like to stash the bike in your trunk, carry it up the stairs to your apartment, take public transit, or any other day to day ride options…

Bikerumor Pic Of The Day: Madison, Wisconsin

bikerumor pic of the day madison, wisconsin

Photo submitted by Brian Heifner, “Raced the rain home from work in Madison. Felt a few drops at the start of the last mile, but a strong push allowed me to outrun the rain. Or I could have skipped snapping a pic of the gorgeous backlit storms that were fast approaching. It was literally that close on timing to beat the rain.”

We always love to see your photos and would like to show them to the world here on the Pic Of The Day. Send in your photo with a brief description here.

Week in Review: An 11-pound mountain bike, new gravel bikes, a wood bike & more!

week-in-review-2016-6-18

With several new gravel road bikes debuting this past week, that category is coming into its own and even starting to see some diversification within it. We also saw a wood road bike and perhaps the most insane lightweight build ever, resulting in an 11.1lb mountain bike that goes so far beyond the standard hacks it’s simply got to be seen. There were also some new bags and clothes, new gadgets to simplify dropper post handling, and (as usual) so much more!

BBinfinite Delrin Ceramitech ceramic bearing rear derailleur pulley wheels actual weights and review

BBinfinite Delrin Ceramitech ceramic bearing rear derailleur pulley wheels actual weights and review

BBinfinite’s second product, the Delrin derailleur pulley wheels with Ceramitech ceramic bearings, came out at the beginning of the month to complement their perfectly aligned bottom brackets and reduce friction at the rear of the bike. We just got our hands on a set for Shimano rear mechs to see if they spin as freely as advertised (hint: they do) and add anything to the ride…
