I was really happy Reelight won at the Eurobike awards

Reelight is among the gold winners at EUROBIKE Award 2008! That was announced last night at an official ceremony in the South German town Friedrichshafen. Reelight is the only gold awarded bike light manufacturer.

EUROBIKE Award is a major prize-giving in the bike business and CEO Kenneth Linnebjerg is proud that the jury chose to award Reelight’s model SL120 Power Backup in the category ‘Bike Equipments’.

– It is a huge recognition to the company and the organisation winning gold here at EUROBIKE Award. We are proud to have a top product and in the future we will of course continue the development, so – hopefully – we can win another award next year, says Kenneth Linnebjerg who participates together with Reelight’s other employees at the exhibition in Friedrichshafen.

Innovation, safety and eco-friendliness were the major criteria in the jury’s decision.

I saw two fellows ride a similar homebrew machine at the Boulder Cruiser ride once. The two men sat side by side with ~6′ dia wheels. Each man was in charge of driving and braking one wheel. On a downhill, they tried to slow the bike but pitched sharply upwards in their seats. The left man panicked and hit the brakes hard, turning them right into a parked car, destroying their bike and damaging the car. Downhill on such a bike is pretty dangerous as braking power is limited by the mass of the rider and seat which can easily launch over the axis.

He’s done some very cool artworks. It’s very innovative if you ask me.

To see his YouTube channel it is

Neat stuff! Click my name above for a quick link to his videos.

Not a bike. But, vaguely bike related. V.odd design. Very Alien-esque.

Personally, I like the silence when I’m out riding. And knowing that I can’t hear my mobile.
