Habitus Loves… Cycling

From that exhilarating childhood discovery to the nostalgia of country riding, bicycles have captured our hearts and enabled our wanderings. This week we pay homage to the humble two-wheeler with our favourite bicycle related things.

Frame Bag

 

Created by: Retrovelo

Why we love it: Who says that bicycle bags always have to look like … bicycle bags? Even 100 years ago the rock-solid frame bag for Swiss military bikes proved its worth. Retrovelo picked up this idea, modified its format and usability for everyday use and designed it with style.

AirFender

 

Created by: Topeak

Why we love it: Fenders that are there when you need them, and quickly gone when you don’t! These clever fenders stow neatly in hydration pack or wedge bag until needed. Then a few pump strokes is all it takes to inflate the fender protecting you from mud and road spray.

Bike Porter

 

Created by: Copenhagen Parts

Why we love it: 

Old-school basket weave is fine if that’s your thing, but what real choice is there if you care about how your bike looks, and your style is more urban than country cottage?

The Bike Porter combines cool aesthetics with practical function without corrupting the clean, simple lines of your ride.

By integrating the basket into the handlebar, the Bike Porter offers a sublime transport option which works as part of your bike as well as introducing an evolution in style.

Le Pietre del Mulino

 

Created by: Süli

Why we love it: Add a fun look to your ride while keeping your seat dry with a SüLi bike seat cap. This Venice Beach-based company (what could be cooler?) offers a ton of unique (and weatherproof) designs to choose from, so you can match your seat to your personality.

Why we love it: Pixie Stix is to Americans what Fairy Bread and Iced Vovos are to us Aussies. Alas – also known as Sherbert – who can forget this essential part of a sticky, sweet childhood.

PUYL

 

Created by: Kai Malte Röver

Why we love it: PUYL is a bicycle pump and portable light combined in one device. It is the first permanent illuminating bicycle light which does not need a battery. This combination provides an unlimited light source and a bicycle pump for urban cyclists.

Saddle Lock

 

Designed by: Lee Sang HwaKim Jin Ho & Yeo Min Gu

Why we love it: Saddle Lock is the innovative way to quickly lock the rear wheel of a bicycle without the need for additional locking accessories.The seat post swings down around the main frame when a button is pushed. The saddle features a cut-away shape that allows it to sit over the rear wheel. A combination lock allows the release of a special alloy rotating lock that extends from one end of the saddle to the other, securing its connection to the wheel.
