So, you’re kinda still married to riding that old Trek carbon racer from 1998? Time to step up and consider another Trek, one more suited to your needs as a commuter with integrated LED lighting, plus racks and fenders included.
The kg271 is Madsen’s latest version of its fully equipped longtail cargo bike. The rear bucket—which straddles the rear 20-inch wheel—has been its signature look from the beginning. Our verdict?
Kids bikes often come from big box stores and are of poor quality. Islabikes believes that kids deserve just a nice a bike as grownups, and the Beinn 26 packs kid-friendly features with adult-sized quality.
Mixed-surface riding is a pleasure every cyclist should partake at least once a week, because most neighborhoods offer the proper terrain if you look hard enough. Here's our take on the BMC Grandfondo GF02 Ultegra Disc machine.
Making the transition to a car-free or car-light household can be daunting. I experienced something to this effect a few months ago when my family of four went from two cars to one.
Steel is real at Jamis, and the Aurora Elite provides more options than most light touring bikes in its class.

A steel touring bike like the AWOL might not be what you'd expect from a racing-oriented brand like Specialized, but we found it perfect for all sorts of adventures.
It's an unusual name for an unusual bike: upright geometry, big tires, flat bars and tons of braze-ons for any adventure.
Curie Tech is not a newcomer to the electric bike market. Started in 1997 as an e-bike only manufacturer, the brand is now owned by the Accell Group, an international corporation with a growing portfolio of over a dozen bicycle brands, including Redline and Raleigh.
The world of e-bikes can be confusing for riders looking for basic, simple transportation. Trek’s T80+ is about as uncomplicated as things get, with a basic drivetrain, no throttle, and a very simple motor control unit.
This bike isn’t like most folding bikes. On first glance, it looks similar to the standard 20-inch-wheeled folder seen on the streets and public transportation in every city. Closer inspection reveals some standout features: disc brakes, high-end Schwalbe road tires, and an 18-speed drivetrain with gearing suited to spirited riding.
The ease with which the Formula folds—a trait of the highest importance—reflects well on Dahon’s three decades of folder manufacturing experience. Within a few attempts I had the Formula folded up in under a minute. A small magnetic clasp keeps the bike closed when carrying it, and when closed, it supports itself upright. High marks all around, particularly for the simple and sturdy metal folding pedals.
Dahon designed the Formula for riders “with tougher commutes that demand speed, portability and endurance.” Claiming to fit riders from 4-foot-8 to 6-foot-4, the handlebar and seat height adjust easily with quick-release levers. I found the handlebar height adjustment particularly useful—slide it up for comfort and a heads-up position for short trips, drop it down for more speed and leverage on longer rides. The frame has mounting points for a rack and fenders, and Dahon sells versions of each designed specifically for 20-inch wheels.
