The Inner City Bike by Joey Ruiter

The Inner City Bike by Grand Rapids, MI based designer Joey Ruiter turns the traditional form of a bike on its head to create something totally new. Ruiter does away with a chain and instead, attaches the cranks directly to the hub of the back wheel. This allows him to shrink the length of the bike an do away with many components.

From the designer:
“Our goal was to hit the reset button on bike design, it’s a city cruiser, more fashion than function. It is really good for simply popping out to go a short distance, and you will look smashing while doing so. But, it is not one you would use to get to work every morning…”

The Acciaio line by Max Lipsey for MATTER

As a avid bike enthusiast and a lover of fine design & furniture, the Acciaio line of seating by designer Max Lipsey, for MATTER, has put a huge smile on my face. The line consists of a dining chair, a lounge chair and a stack able stool all handmade using the same material, fine Italian bike tubing, and methods, fillet brazing, of the finest Italian framebuilders. Each of the three seats comes in a myriad of vibrant colors, each named after a master bike builder.

Urban City Shelves

Living in a perfectly small space with multiple bikes is always a challenge. Where do you put them? Urban City Shelves to the rescue. These solid Cherry or Walnut shelves give you the perfect place to store your bike along with some much need shelving space. The nice thing about bike shelves like these, in contrast to the current offerings from the bike rack manufacturers, is that they look at home in the house. Here’s to an end to ugly bent metal bike racks in the house.

The Urban City Shelves are 12″ wide by 11″ deep and are finished in a natural wax. They are available for $150.00 on the Urban City Shelves website, with custom size orders welcome.

2011 Art Crank Poster by Allan Peters

I’m a huge fan of Allan Peter’s work and his 2011 Art Crank poster doesn’t disappoint. This year he gets a little cheeky, including 4 prints in one with “Each one of these 4 7.75 x 9.75 prints fit in an IKEA Ribba frame. Just sayin.” printed along the bottom edge of the poster. Totally funny.

Monkey Like Shiny – Gravity Bike

I really really want to ride this Gravity Bike from San Francisco based builder of awesome bikes & stuff, Monkey Like Shiny. The bike, capable of reaching over 80mph is not only a thing of beauty but its a true dare devil’s speed machine! The bike is ridden down hill, features a super rigid frame and fork and has some huge disk breaks to slow it down.

The Bamboocycle UH–02 by Diego Cárdenas

This has to be the most beautiful bamboo bicycle I have seen so far. The Bamboocycle UH-02 by Mexico City based designer Diego Cárdenas, is a simple, lightweight (19.5 lbs.) bike designed to look good, ride well, and be eco-friendly. The bike fuses traditional steel tubing with sustainably grown and harvested bamboo by way of carbon fiber reinforced joints. The bikes is not only a carbon neutral method of transportation, its eco-footprint has been reduced significantly with careful manufacturing and smart material choices. Its a win-win for the rider and the environment!
