Faraday Porteur Bike

Merging the convenience of electric with the looks of a classic, the Faraday Porteur Bike ($3,500) manages to straddle the line between the two with grace. Thanks to lithium batteries that are cleverly hidden inside the frame, it looks like a traditional everyday rider, with only an on/off switch and an e-ink battery readout to belie its true nature — pedal, and it will automatically match your power, and when you're wanting to exert less effort, hit the boost button for a little extra help. Other features include LED headlights and taillights that are built into the frame and controlled by an ambient light sensor, and a large front rack that can hold 30 pound loads — or more than enough to carry your dinner and beers from the grocery store to your home.

  • Trek Earl Bike

    What would you expect a bike built for campus cruising to have? A sturdy steel frame? A single speed design? Built-in mounts for racks and fenders, so you can customize it to your book- or friend-hauling needs? Well, the Trek Earl Bike ($530) offers all of that, as well as a BMX-style seat and grips, Tektro brakes, nylon pedals, and one thing every self-respecting college ride needs: a built-in bottle opener.

  • DeLorean Bikes

    You might not be able to buy a new DeLorean car anymore — at least, not until they start selling the Electric DeLorean — but that doesn't mean you can't buy a set of wheels bearing the iconic name. DeLorean Bikes ($5,500) are officially sanctioned by the DMC, and feature an Italian-made Columbus XCR tube frame — in stainless steel, of course — as well as a belt drive transmission, an 11-speed internally-geared hub, front and rear hydraulic disc brakes, a luminescent coating on the wheels, an Italian-made gel saddle, and a full carbon fork. The Anyday model is available now, with Speed and Cruise models to follow.
