Particular bicycles, indeed, very special!

More than a billion people in the world use it bicycle as a means of transportation. In Italy, due to the economic crisis, in recent years, the sales of bicycles they have far outstripped car sales. The first bicycles they spread in the early 1800s and since then "road has been covered ... ".

To date the market offers bicycles extremely details, we are not just talking about pedal assisted bikes that can be electrically or hydrogen propelled, but we are also talking about bicycles made of materials details such as the ultra-light and invisible ones used by the military air force, is the case of the X-9 Nightawk , the ninja bike that weighs only 1.3 kg, what materials do you use? A mix of carbon fiber and Aramid, a fiber of artificial origin that is not in common use at all!


Another one bike worthy of attention is the very special nCycle, which, among other things, offers a computer compartment! If that's not enough, know that the nCycle can use the headlights as speakers Bluetooth! The headlights are integrated into the handlebar which extends with an axis that acts as an anti-theft device: the shape of the handlebar creates a safety ring, so the cyclist will not have to carry chains or blocks for the wheels.

Imagine one bicycle pocket? In fact we have not yet arrived at this but we have gone very close with the models already marketed of the "Bergmonch" montainmonk, bicycles extremely compact that when disassembled become a shoulder backpack.


The one pictured above is there bicycles designed by designer Michael Shrewsbury, it's called The Glide and features a nano carbon frame. The wheels have no spokes, the belt transmission features a gear mounted in the rear of the bicycle and allows bi-directional rotating motion, both forward and backward. The Glide bike includes a smartphone dockstation and on the back of the saddle there is a led light to increase safety. Others bike very particular are proposed in our photo gallery.
