Honda is using commercials to attract different “themes” to the new Jazz, and with this commercial they go after hipsters. One of the individuals is holding a fixed gear equipped with a Aerospoke. Later in the commercial, the person is talking about how he can fit his bikes in the car. Enjoy.
SE is starting to show some of their 2011 fixed gear bikes, and with the first viewing we have the Draft and Draft Lite.
As of now, not much information is known on the 2011 SE Draft and Draft Lite, although from the previous year, they both are reasonably priced (we take it they will fall in the same trend). What is most noticeable is the color schemes available. One of the 2011 Drafts seems to take on some inspiration from the Germany, and overall they are using brighter colors.
MSRP is not known just yet, but they are expected to hit USA SE retailers in October 2010.
Cyglo’s Night Bright Tyres are the newest innovative approach to bicycle safety on the road. Using LED bulbs built in the tire treads, the cyclist simply switches on a motion sensor within the tire which activates the LED bulbs and then your tires can be seen rolling on the road under various lighting conditions.
For increased visibility on the road, the LED bulbs can be turned on permanently or it can be on a flashing mode. As you ride your bike, the flashing lights form a circle, illuminating your tires on the road. As you pedal, there is a transfer of power which is also used to power up the bulbs.
Newly patented by its founder James Tristram in UK and US, Cyglo Night Bright Tires brings bicycle safety on the road to a new level. It recently won a contest in BBC and inventors are now looking for partners to…

Not long ago, we broke the word that Brooks would re-issue the Colt saddle, originally releasing in 1979. The last year Brooks released the Colt was in 2001, while it was known for its durability and strength. Although not for certain, some say the reason for the Colt to be discontinued was the sale of Brooks (in 2001).
The Brooks Colt Saddle will take a different approach, still obtaining the retro look and black colorway, you can also purchase the seat in violet and mustard. At EuroBike, a pink and turquoise Colt will debut. Keeping the saddle environmentally friendly, the colors are obtained by natural vegetable dyes. Retail price is $189.99.
