Some notable news in the world of biking

I wanna write here some notable ews about the world of cycling as far as possible. under the category of notable news. I’m not a professional about it but I thought it would be nice to write here when I’m learning and developing myself.

So, the first news is about a bicycle which is just 11 pounds (5 kg). Yes you didn’t hear wrong! It’s just 11 pounds it’s made from carbon fibre with 95% ratio. That’s why it is such light. Beside the simplicity (in appearence) there are some significant specifications like shock absorption which pushes your ride comfort to the top of maximization.

We have a little problem for the price

I know you’re very curious about the price of this amazing bike; it’s $39,000! Yepp, you didn’t hear wrong, again. It’s because of lightness, carbon fiber construction and some noteworthy specifications, but that fancy price is because Bugatti and PG made it. If you look for a “Bugatti comfort” in a bike, you can buy this affordable product!

Making shock absorbtion to the one step further

Speaking of comfort; the bike seat is one of the most important issue for a riding pleasure as we all know. A company called Rinsten has made an innovative solution as a Kickstarter Project. It’s called Rinsten Spring which installs the shock absorber under the seat. It’s made of solid steel and aluminum providing high quality.

Different ages and body types tested according to them and it seems to make a new approach to the shock absorbers for the bikes. You can watch details in the video below.

  1. Bugatti made a $19000 HYBRID BIKE?! I hope to God this goes down as the dumbest marketing idea ever. If they sell one, I’d…. Wait a minute, is it an April fool’s gag?!

    • I’m afraid it’s not an April fool’s gag, but I’ll bet there will be many people to buy it. I’m sure we’re not in the target group, at least me 🙂

      By the way, I think you made a typo; it is $39000 not 19000. 19000 is very cheap 🙂

      • LOL! You can buy a Trek Emonda for $24,000 less… and the Trek is a pound lighter (lightest proficient bike in the world).

        I can see the Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren projects for road bikes because we roadies are absolutely dumb enough to blow some coin on a cool road bike but a flat bar hybrid?! I can’t imagine there’s a market out there for that.

        • I’m never gonna understand the brands like them. Why a brands like Ferrari etc. want to produce a bike? or the others. If they do it as a show off, I can understand that it’s due to the brand strategy. “If Bugatti makes, sure it will be outstanding; light, cool looking and expensive” bla bla.. But in other way it’s entirely nonsense.

          • I can see the superbikes because they do advance the technology and major bike manufacturers team with the car companies for insight into how to make the bikes better, lighter and stronger. Specialized works with McLaren, BMC works with Lamborghini, Colnago and Ferrari, etc. Hey, if I had $25,000 to blow on a Ferrari Colnago I’d have done it… Or $18,000 for a McLaren Venge. I’d have done that in a second. I’m getting hung up on the hybrid though… It’s the type of bike that has me perplexed.

          • I must confess that it may confuse me, too. It’s a result of attractiveness. But I’m never gonna understand why they should be such expensive! 🙂
