Some crazy Dutch dudes figured if furniture comes flat packed in a box then why can’t a bike? And as you can see the result looks pretty darn cool (or not). Me, I like it. Currently it’s only shipping within Europe, but if you’re looking for a bike that your better half will actually let you keep inside then this is that bike. Hell it wouldn’t look all that out of place next to your Panton or Eames chair. For more info check out their site here.
Kiran MacKinnon is a human dyno. When Santa Cruz Bicycles needs to test, experiment and validate suspension then Kiran is the one of the main people we call on to do that work. Not only is he an extremely talented bike rider and incredibly knowledgeable about suspension, but he can actually interpret and translate what he’s feeling in a way that he can communicate to the rest of the engineering team. This enables them to cross-reference the data they’ve collected with real life, on-trail experience to build better bikes and provide the right setup for our riders. We’re constantly refining our VPP™ suspension as well as the damping tunes shocks we spec on our bikes in order to make sure our bikes ride really, really good.
