Interbike 2012: Ryde Safe Reflective Bike Decals

Met up with the Ryde Safe folks and they showed me some of their new products.

It basically comes down to this, it’s reflective tape that you put on your bike for added night time visibility. What makes them unique is that they offer various colors which stand out.

My favorite part is they have decals for your chain! I asked about grease and all that; they seem to be pretty confident that the stickers would stay on even after applying lube.

Interbike 2012: Yuba Boda Boda

Cargo bike company Yuba came out with a new model called the Boda Boda. This beautifully designed cargo bike has to be one of the most handsome cargo bikes on the floor at Interbike.

I love the white paint with the walnut colored wood trim.

Interbike 2012: No Drip Chain Luber

Saw this booth at Dirt Demo and it caught my attention because it’s something I’ve never seen before. The idea of “proper chain lubing technique” is highly debatable such as religion and politics. With the photos below, I hope you can formulate your own opinions about this product.

The idea is to pour in your favorite lube in the bottle, press against chain, then squeeze bottle while turning the crank. They said that the bottle can handle stuff like White Lightning.

Though the bike is upside down, they recommend using gravity to apply the lube while squeezing.
