Haro Bicycles Signs Greg Watts
Haro is a great company with deep roots in this category. They have listened to Porter and created an awesome frame, and i am sure they will follow suit and give Watts rider input to co-create another awesome bike in their lineup. their bikes are hard to beat for the money, and i've always received superior customer service and support. so many of today's bikes are over-hyped and cost prohibitive, and Haro is still in touch with their core customer. i will continue to expect great things with the addition of Watts to Haro. i think it is a very nice feather in Haro's cap. and props to Watts for finding an awesome company to work with. pro riders have it very hard out there finding sponsors and making it work for them.

Inventor's bike folds into its own wheel!
what about the bicycle chain??? how is that configured? it looks like a coaster bike as i didn't see how the bike is pedaled....almost premature to post something like this without a finalized design, eh?

Sea Otter - Tomac Carbide SL
intenseseb (18 hours ago) (Below Threshold) show comment meh... why not get a Scott Spark off the shelf at 20.26lbs?? or a 6" travel Genius at 22.9lbs ---this person obviously didn't see that the Scott's are $12,000, twice the price of this Tomac.....hard to compare a bike that costs double...

Former Planet Bike Employees launch Portland Design Works
1% For the Planet is a start for a very, very small company. it is important to look where Erik Olson is coming from; and that is many years of experience at Planet Bike, a very successful company. Here's a snapshot of their ideals from their website: Since 1996 Planet Bike has donated over $650,000 to grassroots bicycle advocacy, and we aim to donate a total of $1,000,000 by 2010. Most of our money goes to the Thunderhead Alliance, a coalition of 128 bicycle advocacy groups across the nation that are working together to promote safe bicycling. Imagine if bigger bike companies stepped up as huge as Planet Bike (& acessory) currently does? they do use bamboo in their grips. i am sure all of their packaging will be eco-friendly as well. these 2 guys started this company only to bring something unique to the urban rider. granted not everyone on here who Downhills, Freerides, or Cross Country may also ride an urban bike, but there are some. i realize i check out pinbike.com for the mtn bike stuff, but it just seems like Pinkbike was trying to give the little guy a little love.
