DeLorean Bicycle

The DeLorean Bicycle idea comes from a conversation between “good friends Stephen Wynne (Delorean Motor Company) and Marc Moore (Entrepreneur, Passionate Cyclist & Former Delorean Owner) about building possibly building a bicycle that could bear the DeLorean name, but do so without giving up anything to best bicycle manufacturers of today.”

The company will be producing three styles – the DeLorean Anyday, DeLorean Speed and DeLorean Cruise bikes. The DeLorean Anyday is the first to be released.

“the material to build the bike was an obvious choice; composed of columbus HINOXtube™ trafitubi XCr seamless triple-butted patented stainless steel tubes made in italy, maintaining the delorean connection. the ‘anyday’ has a clean running belt drive transmission which makes it easier to climb bigger hills or go faster on flat roads with the help of an integrated 11-speed internally geared hub that comes as standard equipment.

front and rear hydraulic disc brakes, whether in wet or dry conditions, make stopping power more than sufficient. standard equipment includes an 11-speed internally geared hub. the wheels are covered with an illuminescent coated which when under regular lighting looks dark, but when actually shone upon, they almost appear to ‘turn on’ making visibility in low light or at night better, along with making your late evening or early morning ride a lot safer. finally, an italian made gel saddle enhances one’s riding comfort, and a full carbon fork provides precise steering response, and has been constructed so that there is enough room for one to install larger treaded tires for dirt roads or path riding.”

All that of course also comes at a price – the DeLorean Anyday bike is priced at 5500 USD.
