Huffy rolls with the times

Huffy has hired 26 new employees in 2018 as it launches new brands, including the Batch Bicycles sta

Mass brand makes major investments amid market disruption — and wants to bring the IBD along for the ride. Editor's note: A version of this story appears in the September 1 issue of Bicycle Retailer & Industry News. DAYTON, Ohio (BRAIN) — In its 126-year history, Huffy Bicycles has proved time and again that the ability to adapt is embedded in its DNA. From world wars and the slow death of American manufacturing to the rise of mass retailing and the current retail apocalypse, the company, which got its start when founder George Huffman purchased manufacturer Davis Sewing Machine in 189, has endured just about every market disruption of the modern era. Huffy began producing bicycles in 1892, and by 1905 it employed 2,000 people at its factory in Ohio, which manufactured 600 bikes and 600 sewing machine per day. Although over the years it made lawn mowers, gas station ...

We need to talk about kit sizing

We need to talk about kit sizing

Humanity has decoded its own DNA, driven robots across Mars and invented phones so smart everybody just rubs them. Our technology would look, to a caveman, like magic. What we haven’t managed to do is create two pairs of identically-labelled trousers that are the same size. Nowhere is this baffling inability to predict the shape of a piece of cloth more obvious than in the world of bicycle kit — with tight-fitting road gear being the worst of all. For example, I recently got fitted with a new jersey and bib shorts. The jersey was size Small. The shorts were XL. Is lowering your gearing a kind of failure? Road bikes 2019: the future of road cycling Finally, the waterproof enduro onesie you’ve been longing for They both fit well, even though I’m not, as you’re now imagining, shaped like a centaur, a pear or a traffic cone.

Path of plastic: Netherlands unveils first bike path made entirely of recycled plastics

Path of plastic: Netherlands unveils first bike path made entirely of recycled plastics

Joe Robinson 13 Sep 2018 Recycled 30-metre path made entirely of plastic could be future for road construction The Netherlands has opened its first ever bike path made entirely from recycled plastic, further proving themselves to be light years ahead of the UK in regards to cycling infrastructure. The 30m path in Zwolle has been constructed from recycled bottles, cups and packaging as a pilot of a joint project between Dutch engineering firm KWS, pipe manufacturers Wavin and oil giants Total. If successful, the resourceful scheme could be expanded across the country.
