Tired of turning the corner and seeing someone riding the exact same bike as you? There are plenty of unique bicycles you can buy to cement your individuality on the road. Not only are these bikes ridiculously eye-catching and well-made, but they are also eco-friendly! Take a look at some of the most unique rides the Internet has to offer and take your pick.
This crash-tolerant bike is light, strong, and ready to go. It may not look all that different from your standard bike until you take a closer look and realize that it is made out of bamboo, a natural and renewable resource. These beautiful bicycles take a mere 40 hours to build, are extremely lightweight and perfectly fitted to their rider. Plus, the tubes are joined together with hemp fiber so the overall carbon footprint is essentially zero.
As if cycling wasn’t enough of a workout, ElliptiGo has created a bicycle that is also an elliptical machine. This compact bike provides a full-body workout that eliminates any neck, back and seat pain associated with your traditional bike frame. If you’re feeling weary, there are free test rides for those who are interested, but not quite ready to commit.
This speedy bike literally never goes slower than 30 mph and will give you the smoothest ride of your life. It’s made from Port Orford cedar and Black Walnut cored out to create a hollow core like a regular bike. And while it could possibly take a full year to get to you, over 300 models have been sold since 2007 and not one has broken. So, it’s worth the wait and the money since you won’t have to replace it for over a decade.
This bicycle had its heyday in the 1970s in the UK, but stopped production in 1981 because it wasn’t exactly the safest model around. In 2004, the chopper was resurrected with a few changes, the main alteration making it much safer to ride. The bicycle is awesome, but a little on the small side for an adult. It is definitely recommended if you have a child who is looking to have the coolest ride in the neighbourhood.
This transportation bicycle is an excellent, eco-friendly option for someone who has a lot to carry around in their day-to-day life. It’s surprisingly easy to maneuver as a result of the smaller wheels and disk brakes. It also rocks a two-legged kickstand in the centre so that you can unload it without everything toppling over. This simplistic bicycle could make a world of difference for someone who’s stuck driving around a busy city with a big haul to push around.
There you have it! Whether you’re looking for a sweet ride to show off, or a safe or eco-friendly alternative to the bus, car or train, you have options to pedal around.
