Need an extra push to get started with bike commuting? You’re in luck: Dutch cycling company Vanmoof just launched their amazing B6 Bicycle in the U.S. With in-built high-powered bike lights and puncture resistant tires, Vanmoof promises their B6 is “all your need for a daily commute.” Keep reading to see what other goodies this fantastic bicycle offers.
If it’s hills that are holding you back from commuting on two wheels, fret not. Vanmoof’s B-Series bicycle is equipped with a three-speed gear system and is designed with “San Francisco suitability” in mind. And whereas some commuter bikes trade style for comfort, the two-toned B6 makes no such comprise: its white powder coated aluminum frame nicely contrasts with its otherwise all-black color scheme. Built-in “unstealable” front and rear hub dynamo-powered Phillips lights offer plenty of visibility to keep you safe at night.
Additional features that distinguish the B6 as the perfect urban commuter bike include puncture resistant tires and front and rear disc brakes that respond better than traditional drum brakes to wet conditions, so you don’t have to worry about the skidding dangerously through puddles. Moustache handlebars and a cushy seat create comfortable conditions for semi-upright riding. The bike’s anti-rust chain is fully enclosed in a chain guard to protect your clothing as you ride. The bike retails for $848, but don’t miss out on your chance to score one of these bikes for free by entering Inhabitat’s Green Halloween Costume Contest!
