Totally love this photo, you can feel the speed and the set up of the ride is not your average build, The fat carbon rim at the back with a rear brake, sugino 75 crank, the nitto stem and then the pretty high risers on that. Looks super fun to ride.
POC has two new helmets that will be good for urban riding 2011. The POC Trabec race and Trabec. The Trabec Race has a bit more aramid reinforcement which is a form of kevlar. The helmet has the shape of a skate helmet but the 16 vent holes together with some deeps groves inside the helmet will give you very good air flow so you don’t bake your brain. The good ventilation will also help keep away bad smell. The Trabec comes in sizes xs-s, m-l, xl-xxl. For more information head over to POC
We started to discuss with Svensson last autumn and now we can see the fruit of the work they put in to the project to create a Svensson bicycle using the bikeid frame and components as a starting point for their creativity. Well done boys!
Svensson also produced one of the best jeans I ever owned, simple black jeans with a bit of stretch, perfect when riding your bike!
We at bikeid wich you a happy easter and lots of riding!
Remember your first bicycle? it was probably a fixed gear right?
Many of us might remember the first couple of bicycles we got growing up, but what many people tend to forget is that it was in most cases a hard core fixed gear machine. We loved it and road it every day, rain or shine. I spotted this beauty in an alleyway in Shanghai a couple of month ago.
A friend sent me a link with some new urban clothes from a german design team called Acronym. Very nice stuff, the only problem will probably be the price points. If you like what you see head over to Acronym and check which shop is closest to you.
Saw this post a long time ago and I was happy to find the link again this weekend. If you live within the green area you can reach the middle of Stockholm within 30 minutes. Pretty similar to the amount of time it takes with a car, I do however not know if they calculated the time to park your car etc. Besides the time you also save money and do not need to spend your free time on the treadmill. Boom!
Here is a new version of Patrick Seabase’s ride up and down Simplon, this time captured on Super8. I think it takes some guts riding that kind of mountains considering there is a lot of snow surrounding the road. Spotted over at Paticks own blog
For all of you that want to squeeze the tire to check the pressure or just tap the steel frame we are now happy to announce that you can actually do that in a couple of places in Stockholm. And don’t forget we still offer free shipping until 15th of April.
Happy riding folks!
Aplace, Brunogallerian, Stockholm Café Mocco, Nybrogatan 61, Stockholm Caliroots (adress coming soon)
This is short re-edit from different fixed gear movies, it starts with the scene where Massan is doing a classic hill bombing in SF and after that there are some tricks, very nice edit and music. enjoy.
We are happy to announce that we now have Oury grips in stock! These are one of the worlds most popular grips and we can just agree, they are super comfy and last for a long long time. We now have the Oury grips in the following colors: red, black, blue, yellow, white orange and bubble gum pink. Head over to our shop to grab a pair for yourself shop!
Wald bicycle baskets - your best friend at the picnic
I first spotted this Wald basket 2009 outside bluelug in Tokyo, I snapped a photo of it and now we are very happy that we have it in our store. Guessing from the picture we choose a slightly smaller model which we think will fit your bike better. Wald baskets are made in USA, in fact the company was founded before the good old T-Ford hit the road, back in the day when the majority of the population actually rode their bicycles to get anywhere. Ahh, good old days.
If you plan to have some nice picnics this spring/summer we suggest you jump over to our shop and grab one right now! Then you can arrive in style.
Once again Knog is lightning up our shop with a new product, the Boomer Rechargeable. The advantage of the normal Boomer is the high powered LED, now you can ad the advantage to recharge your light via your computer, on the upside you save both your hard earned cash and the environment. We keep getting different numbers on the duration on the lights varying from 3.5-6 hours with constant light and up to 12 hours with the led flashing. To be honest we guess we stick to the lower number considering the cool climate in Sweden for now and upgrade once we had time to do a proper test. These lights are super easy to put on and take off so you should always bring them with you when you leave your bike, otherwise those highly sought after lights might get stolen.
What can we say? Boooom. Head over to our shop and have a look here!
It does not matter if your ride is from BikeID or any other brand, we do not want your bicycle to get stolen, neither does Knog. That is why they have developed this new smart hybrid of a lock and a cable all packaged in their UV resistant silicon that is their trademark we all know from their collection of lights like the Beetle or Boomer
The cable is 1.2 meter with no leverage points and apparently also resistant of extreme temperatures ie liquid nitrogen attacks. Knog themselves give their lock a Pawn shop status which is equal to a 40% out of 100. The fact that you can secure both your front wheel and attach your frame to a pole is a big plus in our opinion. For more pictures head over to Knog If you want to keep your bike get your Fisticuffhere
the guys from Chariandco spent a couple of days in Japan visiting some of the most famous Japanese bicycle brands, here is their visit from the Kashimax factory. After spending the last year on a plastic Kashimax bmx saddle and a normal Kashimax aero saddle they are now fully approved by us and a first order has been made. Be sure to check back soon to get your hands on some of the best saddles Japan has to offer. We will have a small limited batch of colorful saddles coming in!
Too many times people get their bicycles stolen just because they do not use the correct lock or do not lock the bike to something. We have just ordered lots of good locks from both kryptonite ( the classic mini U lock ) and some new colorful locks from Knog, Please if you do not have a good lock, spend some extra money on a good lock. We should have them in early next week.
