Meet The TroyTec Revolution LR, A High-Tech Carbon Recumbent.
The TroyTec Revolution LR is really a 4 in 1 recumbent bicycle. By exchanging a few components you can configure the bicycle between four primary configurations including a competition racer, or even a full suspension model.
The TroyTec Revolution LR boosts an impressive list of options not to mention the high-tech approach to manufacturing. Nevertheless, we never been on a recumbent let alone ride one, so we thought it best to direct you over Gizmag.com, where C.C. Weiss has written an excellent article that talks about the Revolution in great detail. Even if you’re not into recumbents the article is an interesting read, I encourage you to check it out.

The 1865 Concept from Ding 3000 is an amazing rendition of what man’s first bicycle may have looked like if the technology and materials of today were available in 1865. The Velocipede was the first pedal powered cycle in history. To help this project become reality, Ding 3000 partnered up with chemical giant, BASF who together produce this amazing E-Velocipede. The 1865 is truly unique, it’s made of 24 different polymer applications, bearingless pedals, and light and punctureproof tires. The 250v motor is housed inside the rear wheel, with the battery hidden into the removable seat. The bike also has integrated front and rear L.E.D.s, and a rear brake with transparent hoses so you can check the condition of the fluid. Not sure if this project will be put into production, but it would be fun to cruise town on one of these.
