A.N.T. Basket Bike

A.N.T. (Alternative Needs Transportation) Bikes are custom made by Mike Flanigan out of his shop in Massachusetts. He has set out to re-invent the RoadsterĀ style bike that is a conglomeration of Dutch, French and English style commuter bicycles. His frames are TIG welded, resulting in simple rugged steel frame designs.

Mike is interested in promoting commuter bicycles, as well as everyday bikes that can be used for any type of road or light trail or road riding. The basket bike above is based off of a “postal delivery” design featuring a 20 inch front wheel that adds to the ease of mobility while under load. (Mike says this basket will easily hold 3-4 bags of groceries.) I love the thoughtful details (King headset, chain guard, disc brakes, custom fenders, and powder coated rims) that make this a practical and stylish ride. Next time I’m in Massachusetts I’ll have to take this unique design for a test ride.

What is the best way you’ve found to transport groceries on two wheels? (Pannier, Basket, Rack, Cargo Bike, Large Capacity Messenger Bag) What works for you?

Dare * Risk * Dream

Bike Hugger visited the Nike Campus and spotted this single speed with a Dare * Risk * Dream sticker. We also saw Lance’s first bike, the Trek he rode to his first Tour win, and more.

You and your brood.

I’m not sure what to say about this… It is kinda like the stretch limo of bikes. This bike was seen on the second day of Ohio’s TOSRV ride. (Similar to the STP or any other 2 day double century.)

Mobile Apps for Cyclists

With the blogosphere and news media abuzz about the next iPhone, MobileMe (your mac online), and more mobile apps, we were wondering here at Hugga HQ what apps cyclists would want on their iPhones?

  • Location-aware rides and routes
  • alert me if the toll bridge is up!
  • Dock my phone and get all my stats.

We’ve discussed this, in part, before and we’re thinking about again with the steady flow of iPhones apps expected.

What do you think is cool, would work for you?

Moto + Bike

I’ve thought that a good way to demonstrate biodiesel or even electric cars is in a bike race caravan. You can bet that caravan and all the racers and spectators traveling to a race are spewing out their share of carbon. Well, check this bike motorcycle setup spotted at a race this weekend.
