Video: NYC Police Hate Cyclists

This had me on the floor. Honestly the bike lanes aren’t the safest place for bikers. I’m one of the assholes that walk in the bike lane, yet I’m getting a bike.

Audi’s Hardwood Bike

Audi-Renovo hardwood bike 01.04.2011

Seems like more car manufacturers are building bikes. Are they cornering the urban market? Maybe. But a bike that runs $6,530 isn’t cornering anybody.

The Duo is made of a monocoque hardwood frame that is stiff, durable and able to absorb shocks and vibrations while weighing about one-fourth of what an equivalent aluminum frame would.

Audi will offer the Duo in three variants too.

The Duo City is an 8-speeder for urban dwellers and comes with an upright rider position for short distances and 32 mm tires. Price is $6,530.

The Duo Sport is an 11-speed long distance rider with 28 mm tires for less roll resistance and is priced at $7,350.

The Duo Road has is a performance road-going bike with thin tires and 20 speeds and a price tag of $7,460.

The Carbon Fiber Beast

The Mansory Zapico superbike is a carbon fiber monster developed in collaboration with German motorbike customizer Thomas M. George. It features a 124 cubic inch V2 engine made by America’s S&S capable of 160 hp and can do 0 – 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds. Most components are custom made by the Mansory factory in the Bavarian town of Brand, and of course the leather saddle is as luxurious as the upholstery in any of Mansory’s supercar creations.

A price hasn’t been set but expect to never own it.

The Most Convenient Bike Ever

Its made for the daily city commuter, but not necessarily the bike warrior. I wouldn’t advise flying down Broadway thinking you can weave in and out like the maniacs bike messengers that do it on a daily basis. The design is super clean and sleek, and the best part is that it folds up, so you can actually bring it on the subway and not block the damn doors. The designer behind this is Mark Sanders.
