Today, on Earth Day [2], we wanted to celebrate alternate modes of transportation, and what better way to do so than showcasing a beautiful bike from Mercedes-Benz. Starting in May, MB Accesories GmbH will add the Trailblazer [3] mountain bike to its bicycle collection – the latest in the growing range of the Mercedes-Benz line of high-end bicycles [4]. Perfect for going out to the trails or for trekking around the city, this bicycle has all the high-quality components that you would expect from a company like Mercedes-Benz.


The bike was created and designed by Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH, ADP Engineering GmbH and the Mercedes-BenzDesignCenterin Sindelfingen in collaboration with German cycle manufacturer ADP Engineering GmbH, makers of the Rotwild brand of cycles [5]. It is a high-end bike, costing more than $4,000 USD, and comes in both a Sport Edition and a Comfort Edition. Among its features, a sophisticated four-link rear suspension and Avid Juicy Five disc brakes, as well as a lightweight aluminum frame. A number of components are available for both men and women, to ensure maximum comfort and improve the experience for the rider.

We love grabbing our trusty old bikes and riding them to the office during the week, or just taking a long ride throughout the city on the weekends. So if you were to ask us, how we will begin our day on Earth Day [6], we can safely say that we shall begin it by going out for a ride. Having said that, would someone like to sponsor us for a new bike?
