The PK Ripper Fixed Gear X The Standard

leave a comment »

image1341683264.jpgThis whole fixed gear thing is out of control in the USA. As far as I know, it hasn’t blown up quite a big here in Australia… But it’s pretty crazy. If ya don’t know, jump on the net & google that stuff!
This is a colab between DC & The Standard. Run of 1000 for around $1250, to get your hands on one would be kinda cool. But to ride them, well, that’s another skill set entirely.

Un-stealable // un-puncturable :p

Via: dailymail

Olympic cyclist Chris Boardman was today unveiling a design that he believes will be an everyday product within 20 years. The 40-year-old said the technology was already available, it just needed the will to put it all together.

The new bike includes an inbuilt computer system incorporating an ‘unbreakable’ locking device that allows only the owner to open it via fingerprint recognition
A mini computer on the handlebars counts the calories the cyclist is burning by monitoring each turn of the pedals.

Chris Boardman in action. The Olympic cyclist has designed a bike of the future
Spoke-less wheels make the bike more aerodynamic while the tyres will be puncture-proof with self-inflating tyres.

Owners of the bike, which is still being designed, won’t even always have to pedal – a battery-assisted motor run by solar panels takes over if they get tired.

Plus the frame is made of carbon fibre, making the bike strong and lightweight.
Boardman, who led a research team for British Cycling in the run-up to the Beijing Olympics, said the bike would not be ‘financially feasible’ for 20 years.

However, the 1992 Olympic gold medalist for the four-kilometre pursuit added: ‘It could be built now if there was a will. All the technologies are already there, it’s just that nobody’s put them all together before.’
Tom Bogdanowicz, campaign manager at London Cycling Campaign, said: ‘Some of the ideas behind this bike are clearly things cyclists want. But it really needs to be affordable.’

Whenever summer rolls around, I always dream of a sweet cruiser or bicycle to ride around on because it just feels right!!
However, every summer I don’t get a bike. I just dream of it.
So although it’s headed to winter time, I’m dreaming ofthis gorgeous woodgrain bike! Mmmmmmmmmm!
