Globe Haul 1 Cargo Bike


globe haul 1 cargo bike   Globe Haul 1 Cargo Bike
If you’re looking for a new cargo bike with vintage appeal, take a peek at the Globe Haul 1. The Haul 1 is simple with few logos by design, allowing its riders the ability to add their own personal touch, much like the rest of Globe’s bicycles. The Globe A1 Premium Aluminum frame hosts an integrated Wood Deck rack for easy hauling, which is tested for 130lbs. The bike comes with a Shimano Alivio 8-speed Rear Derailleur system, an energy saver when you’re hauling additional weight or trekking it up hill. It also has integrated front and rear lights. Currently, the Globe Haul 1 is only available in Kalamata Green (I know, we’d like to see them in more colors too). You can get all of this and more for MSRP $660….

The Colnago Ace road bike, designed for a rider who’s looking for a road bike with a more comfortable upright relaxed position, is the model Colnago is most excited about for 2010. When looking at the bike, you will notice Colnago’s Real-X geometry, a fancy term for saying that the head tube measures approximately 20mm taller than some of its other models, which Colnago has implemented into an all new full carbon fiber monocoque frameset. The Colnago Ace will come equipped with handlebars, a seat post, and a stem manufactured by FAS and Colnago brakes and tires. The Ace is set to release later this month in eight different sizes, ranging from 42cm through 58cm. Colnago will be offering the Ace in two different paint schemes: white or red. At a very competitive MSRP of $2,999, Colnago expects its Ace to be a popular choice.

Colnago Prestige Cross

With the help of Sven Nys, former cyclo-cross world champion, Colnago has officially stepped away from the Colnago c50 Cross to bring you the Colnago Prestige Cross. The Prestige Cross, a top of the line full carbon fiber monocoque front triangle frame, is new to Colnago’s lineup for 2010. Colnago’s latest crosser comes lugged in the rear at the seat-tube and chain-stay junction, making for a more compliant rear end. By design, the Colnago Prestige Cross also offers its riders a stiff and strong ride. According to Colnago, a flat top and bottom tube, as seen on the Prestige Cross, is the most efficient method for adding strength to an all-carbon frame geared at cyclo-cross. Another unique feature that Colnago has added to its bike is a carbon bridge, designed for adding comfort when lobbing the Prestige Cross over your shoulder during transitions in a cyclocross race.
