Ian Sutton of Icarus Frames is no stranger to uniquely-constructed bicycles. His Leviathan is still, to this day, one of my favorite concept bikes I’ve seen. When Josh from Sparse lights contacted Ian about doing a fillet steel and carbon tubed road bike, Ian took the challenge… and the result is amazing. After fillet brazing the sleeves and shaping the ends, he bonded ENVE carbon tubes to complete the frame.
The final result was painted by Brian Meyers at Fresh Frame, with Sparse branding and fit with Mad Fibre wheels. Personally, I think it’s one of the most unique frames to come from Ian since the Leviathan… See for yourself in the Gallery!
This is a pretty clever idea for simple, minimal, stick anywhere bicycle lights. Lucetta’s magnetic lights will stick to anything that’s steel on your bike (that seatpost in the video is steel). See more at Lucetta!
The latest from Knog is now available at your local shop. The Blinder Road 3 lights dance the line between your normal blink light and a lamp. 300 lumens of light, weights only 105g, 100% waterproof and is USB rechargeable. Oh and it comes in purple. Head to Knog for more information!
So what Portland Design Works is clearly stating is with each purchase of an Aether Demon light, you’ll receive a bearded, space helmet guy in a Mexican blanket (it better be wool) that charges your tail lights for free? At least, I think that’s what they’re saying.
The new Knog Blinder Road is looking great. I can’t wait to try one out. 200 lumens in the front and 70 lumens in the rear, these lights will supply the rider with 100% visibility in any weather and they’re USB rechargeable.
At this point, no light should need replacement batteries, especially when USB charging is so easy. I’ve gone through dozens of lights and I keep coming back to Knog‘s Blinder series. This isn’t meant to be a review, just a “stoked” meter reading for the new Knog “seeing” lights. Last week at Frostbike, Knog unveiled the Road 2. I can’t wait to see more.
