The 1865 Concept from Ding 3000 Is Amazing!!
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.

For those who enjoy taking on just about anything on a single-speed. And for those who enjoy putting the over-geared, fully-kitted peeps in a world of envy, the Honey Badger is a must-have fun machine. Spot spent thousands of hours on the details to enhance the riding experience. Like Animal-Leg Seatstays and a new Time-Trial Cutaway Seattube for 82% more vertical compliance over the Rocker – that means better traction and a shocking level of comfort. They further refined the geometry, created a Crenelated Downtube Gusset, and a CNC machined tapered headtube, providing stiffness and stability for remarkable steering control. And single-speeding is at its purest with the buttery Gates Carbon Drive CenterTrack drivetrain. Use it on any day, any trail, for whatever reason. To be honest, the Honey Badger don’t care.
