bikerumor week in review

This week we saw impressively painted bikes from Scott for the Rio Olympics, Marin reintroducing their classic color fade in honor of their 30th anniversary, and looking toward the future Cyclotron’s hub-less bike fulfilling their crowdfunding goals. There was also a hands-free communication device from Japan to keep you and your riding buddies in touch whether you are riding locally or around the world, a hack to make your reverb work with any lever, and lots more. Skim through all the headlines below so you don’t fall off the back…
