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.
This is with the flash on to show you how well Ryde Safe works.
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.
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.
Dual kick stand for extra stability.
Overall, my favorite cargo bike at Interbike.
New bike brand
Price point of $600 hits the mark.
They even have a Dutch inspired model.
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.
Felt Bicycles had a few commuter bikes on display. Here’s a few shots of models they had available.
The York — it’s a classy city bike with hammered metal fenders and a front rack.
Single speed drive train with sweet looking cranks.
Faux leather grips and saddle to finish the look.
Verza City — it’s a belt drive bike with internal gear hub.
Here’s the Women’s Verza model with a standard drive train.
