BMC Racing Team press officer Sean Weide has one of the coolest bikes on the Pro Tour. Watch the video of Sean in action at the Tour of Utah, and learn about the bike that makes all his colleagues jealous.
The motto for the new BMC city bikes featured in the teaser video above is “Pick Faster.” The 2014 AC01 with Gates Carbon Drive is indeed faster. Faster than other urban bikes, faster than other modes of transportation, faster than parking your car. BMC makes some of the world’s speediest racing bikes, and its goal for the brand’s city bikes is to prove that internal gear hubs and belt drives help you get to the office, or from A to B, faster and more efficiently. So go ahead: pick faster. Look for the full video to launch in the coming months.
Nicolai has released a couple videos of two new 2014 bikes, the Fat Bike and the Rocc 29er.
Beautiful camera work, closeups and a pumped up soundtrack in this video of the 29er:
This next one is seriously ridiculous! Watch Frank Schneider bounce down some rocky trails to a hillbilly music soundtrack. The intro with two German dudes debating the merits of wheel size is spot-on in its mocking tone about the debate over 29 versus 650b/27.5. Hard not to smile watching this video:
Erik Nohlin of Specialized recently completed the Transcontinental bike race from London to Istanbul. It was a grueling two-week ride through harsh weather and over mountain passes, with little sleep and no team support allowed. A film crew followed Erik, who rode a Specialized AWOL touring bike with Gates Carbon Drive, and his Specialized colleague Recep Yesil as they battled the elements and exhaustion. The trailer below tells the story. A feature-length movie of their journey will be released in late 2013.
Schindelhauer is a German bike brand with impeccable styling and a full range of high-performance city bikes with Gates Carbon Drive.
