Recent Magazines

Velovision's website (the magazine is worthwhile reading for those of us interested in more than just run-of-the-mill bicycles) reports that the BSI Sustainability Design Award 2007 has gone to Joe Wentworth's retrofit folding handlebar design and mentions the shaft-drive Beixo bikes, courtesy of Peter de Lange. They also link to Jeff Potter's report (of Out Your Backdoor) of the Philly Folder Roundup.

Switching to hardcopy mode, Velovision's June issue (it takes a little longer for some things to get to Australia and occasionally real life also intrudes) noted that silver Brompton jewelry is available from Voss Spezial-Rad in Germany and tested the BionX-assisted Airnimal Joey. It is likely that the Bike Friday Tiket will be reviewed in the next issue, together with the Strida.

A to B Magazine's 60th edition marked their 10th anniversary (another June edition) with tests of the Dahon Curve and the electrically-assisted Nano Brompton and mentioned the Stash folding helmet.
