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.

Isn’t that a poignant shot for today?



Saddle Made of Ostrich

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?
