IKEA Bikes: Sladda

sladda-bicycle-gray__0442376_PE593767_S4

Starting in February 2017, you’ll be able to pick up IKEA’s new Sladda bike in stores across the US. Or, if you just can’t wait, you can order it now on IKEA’s US website, starting at $399.

I know a lot of folks are already complaining that it won’t be a “real” bike.  Seriously, with a 10 year warranty on the belt drive, with disc brake and a rear coaster brake?  With a $25 Front Rack, a $129 Trailer, and a $30 Bike Bag (that converts to a backpack)?

This was designed with a carry handle on the frame and appears to include lights and a bell.  A BELL!  Standard. 

I think I have just found my new commuter bike.

Electric Mini Folding Fat Bike

The RadMini is the first and only electric folding fat bike with heavy duty front and rear cargo racks and a powerful 750 watt 48 volt power system. Equipped with comfortable but compact 4’’ wide and 20’’ tall tires, the RadMini can be conveniently folded in order to store and transport the bike more easily. What really makes the RadMini special is its versatility. The RadMini has the ability to take on many tasks you would not expect from a folding bike such as hauls from the grocery store, challenging terrain, and rough roads all without breaking a sweat. The integrated front and rear lights help you be seen on the road. The 20 MPH top speed allows you to crush your commute or enjoy a fast and exciting evening ride around the local park. Stylish, durable, and fun the RadMini  is your key to new adventures big and small.
