Freitag Bags in Zurich

Comments

by Mark V on Jun 16, 2008 at 12:07 AM

053008-1.jpg One of my best friends sent me some pix from his trip to Europe to see the Giro d’Italia last month. One of the cool things was the Freitag Bag store in Zurich. Freitag is a Swiss company that makes bags out of recycled materials, not unlike Alchemy Goods here in Seattle. But what’s really cool is their store: it’s made out of big-ass shipping containers stacked on top of each other. Check it out!

053008-2.jpg Pretty wild, but I bet that place is freaking cold in the winter. Those containers probably weren’t built with a whole lot of insulation. 053008-3.jpg

We stayed local for the weekend and Fathers day, but our readers tipped us to how much fun Cirque du Cycling was …

Sycip Salumi cargo bike

Sycip%20Salumi.jpg

Jeremy Sycip just shot me an email with Sycip Designs’ latest experiment: the Salumi. I haven’t even had a chance to talk to Jeremy about it, but it seems like the bike is a handbuilt cargo bike with a 20” front wheel and 700C rear. You can tell that the brothers Jay and Jeremy have a powdercoating facility since the fenders and rims are the same finish as the frame. And you wouldn’t coat the rims if you didn’t have disc brakes. In fact, the Salumi seems to have the excellent Shimano Alfine internally-geared rear and dynamo front disc hubs, though I couldn’t see a light from the pix. A fun bike, but don’t forget these guys make some serious performance bikes too, especially cyclocross.

Custom Mini-Footsies

Is riding your Xtracycle a family affair? I’ve seen lots of Xtra’s around Seattle with a Peapod on the back. But what do you do when your little one has outgrown the child seat, and is too small to safely rest his feet on Xtracycle footsies? Enter this custom solution seen on Xtracycleinc’s Flickr stream. Mini footsies secured to the seat stays. Combined with a handlebar attached to your seat post, this creative solution will keep you both rolling in style.

Saddle Made of Ostrich

Comments

by Galen Maynard on Jun 13, 2008 at 6:28 AM

As a kid I imagined riding an ostrich like the “Swiss Family Robinson.” However, this isn’t exactly what I had in mind. Selle Anotomica has developed a saddle made of ostrich leather in some really wild colors. I don’t know how this material choice is meant to benefit the rider, other than looking really cool parked outside your favorite watering hole.

Anyone ride this saddle, or have thoughts on Selle Anotomica?

Midday Ride

I rode the Brompton to a meeting downtown. Rode up to a cyclist on a Bike Friday who was riding to Magnolia for a meeting. We then met a cyclist on a Redline who was out for his lunch ride.
