Ironwood Chain Smoker

It has been a few months since Husqvarna announced the release of the spectacular Vitpilen 701, since then motorbike customising shops have been thinking about potential customizations. But it is not easy to modify a bike that looks so fine out the box, unless you give it to Ironwood of course. The bike has an inspiring, minimalist design with futuristic features but also classic inspiration, high quality components and top performance, that is, a cocktail of ingredients that awakens the imagination of any customiser. Named "Chain Smoker" the custom build has had some subtle changes that managed to make it look so much better. The biggest change is happening out back, by lopping off the tail and further exposing the frame and engine components beneath the seat, they gave the bike a even more compact look. They also fitted a custom leather seat with beautiful integrated LED indicator and tail lights, and re-mounted the OEM taillight. They finished it of with a striking angular geometric camouflage paint job on the tank.

Muli Cargo eBike

Cargo bikes are great to haul all your gear (or kids) around, but they can be rather ungainly when used as regular commuters, specially in busy cities. With only 6.4 ft (195cm) long, and a cargo basket that folds in when not in use, the Muli Cargo eBike sets new standards in terms of compactness. It is almost as long as a normal bike, thanks to the small wheels, and the large, 90l cargo basket that can be folded to a width of only 28cm (11 inches). It fits into ever...
