…Ghost bikes are a solemn reminder?

Ghost Bikes

Unfortunately, cars and bikes don’t always get along, and when confrontations happen, the bike is usually on the loosing end.

For those that pass on to the bike path in the sky, a painted white “Ghost Bike” is often locked to a nearby pole as an epitaph to the departed biker. These bikes serve as a reminder to cars that everyone needs to share the road, so the next time you see one remember: Share the road to save a life.

…The Skibike MkII is a snow machine?

Skibike MkII

On my last trip to the snow, I saw a few folks running around the mountain on snow bikes, and it looked like a blast.

However, while the whole bike with skis for tires idea sounded like a lot of fun, the lack of suspension made it look like it would be less than fun after just a few minutes.

If you’re just dying to ditch the skis for something new though, then check out Boozhound Laboratories’ full suspension Skibike MkII. It takes the snow bound bike idea and adds in up to 10 inches of suspension travel for a cushy ride that’s sure to be easier on your tushy.

…COG loves the single speed?

COG Magazine

If you’re a fan of “one gear, fixed wheel, low-maintenance, highly-dependable bikes”, then COG is for you.

“COG is a visual journal captured from behind the bars of city bikers and messengers around the world”.

It’s filled with beautiful pictures, great reviews, and from the front lines stories, so if the fixed gear bike is your thing, then COG just might be your new best friend.
