Cyclo: “The Ultimate Urban Bicycle”

cyclo ultimate urban bicycle

Two French-American brothers, Eric and Antoine Duvauchelle grew up in a small town in France that embraced getting around by bicycle. When they reached adulthood the two lived in various cities around the globe — New York, London, Berlin, and Portland — continuing to use the bike as their preferred method of transportation. Eric became was clearly the right-brain-dominated of the two, becoming a designer. Antoine, had more of an analytical left-brain sensibility, thriving in business roles. When the two decided to start a business together, they decided to go for the one thing they were both passionate about: cycling. So they founded Cyclo — an amalgam for the French world for bike, velo, and the word cycle — a bike company that touts its product as “the ultimate urban bicycle”

What makes a Cyclo bike “the ultimate urban bicycle”? Basically the Portland-based brothers took every feature they thought a city bike should have and put it all into one model. According to the Cyclo website, it contains “dynamo powered lights and a brake light for safety, fenders to keep you dry and a carbon belt drive to keep your pants clean.” Plus it was designed for both speed and comfort. Its lights are 205 lumens of brightness, and since they’re dynamo-powered, you never have to replace batteries. They also added the brake lights because most bikers get hit from behind. They also kept it nice and light, so you can ride faster, and so it won’t be such a pain to carry them up those stairs. Unfortunately the bike is going to cost you a pretty penny. The lowest priced model starts at $1,850, while the decked-out version goes for $3,150. We bet it will be worth every penny.

The Jetson Adventure Electric Bike: Pedal Power
electric bike, Jetson Adventure Electric Bike

I recently got the opportunity to spend a few days with a Jetson Adventure Electric Bike, and let me tell you this: I briefly considered perpetrating some sort of convoluted scheme wherein I would not have to return the bike to the good people of Jetson who lent it to me. Once you have ridden a power-assisted bicycle, a regular bike seems like a cupcake with no frosting.* But I've always avoided fraud when possible, so instead I simply rode the hell out of this thing while I could.

First a few words on the Jetson brand: this brand new company is dedicated to providing "the most extensive line of personal mobility products for all ages that are environmentally-friendly, convenient and affordable." I know that, because it says so on their website. The company will be offering electric bikes, scooters, hover boards, trikes, skateboards, and more. And you read that right, I said "will be" because at the time of this writing, Jetson's store has not even officially launched yet.
