Pictures of bicycles…
Maybe monthly, maybe more or less often.

April 2014 BOM – Gibike prototype

 

We saw this cool machine at Sea Otter.  It’s a Gibike – electric/human hybrid.  Designed to be an inner city commuter.  At this time it’s a prototype and the inventors are looking for some investment via Kickstarter to get into production.

It’s not only a beautiful bicycle it’s also well thought out in terms of functionality.  I was drawn to the swoopy lines, open crankset and single sided chainstay and front end.  It also folds easily for storage with just one lever, it has a multi gear rear hub, USB charging port, non-greasy belt drive and anti-theft locks built right in.  Head to their web site to get all the details right from the source.

’59(?) JC Higgins

Here’s an oldie.  I think it’s a 1959 but there’s no way to tell by the serial number.  I saw some similar ones whose owner’s said they were between ’58 and ’60.

Krampus 29+

Well here it is, the shortest day of the year.  It’s snowing.  Figured that the Krampus would be a deserving choice for December bike of the month. It’s not truly a snow bike but it does pretty well on the packed-out singletrack.

These pics are from the Blair Witch and MGM trails here in Steamboat.
