Boltz & Saos (BSG) was founded by Thierry Boltz and Claude Saos, a brilliant team of designers working out of their studio housed in Strasbourg, France. And it is out of this design studio their birth child – Wood.b – was born. Wood.b is a design shared equally by this twosome, both in the design elements, as well as in the passion they decidedly feel for this mode of emission-free transportation. From the start, they were no strangers to the phrase: “don’t reinvent the wheel”, but that is exactly what Boltz & Saos did. And they did it with flare! Continue reading

Helios Bars: Transforming Bicycles into Vehicles


As an avid biker, constantly thrusting my arms left and right to single my movement, I am in need of a safer notification system. Cars have everything in this regard.

It seems strange to call it vehicle because of its small size, but the YikeBike is capable of transporting you on any commute. Continue reading

Sometimes, all you need is just some time and space in order to be free to look into matters. The more I was digging into the Derringer cycles website, the more I was intrigued, my mind captivated by the boldness and well executed manner of the whole idea. Continue reading
