RID­ING ON AIR

The Peak (Singapore) - - The Hot Seat -

You’ve got your garage of cus­tom-built speed mon­sters but, some­times, you just like go­ing ba­sic – but not quite. That’s where the PG Bu­gatti bi­cy­cle (www.pg.de) comes in. The prod­uct of a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the su­per­car maker and pre­mium Ger­man bike brand PG, the min­i­mal­ist-look­ing bi­cy­cle boasts mul­ti­ple break­throughs. Its frame is crafted from car­bon fi­bre, and the bike weighs less than 5kg (it's 9kg for the elec­tric-as­sisted ver­sion), mak­ing it the light­est ur­ban bi­cy­cle in the world. In fact, the car­bon com­po­nents are hand­crafted us­ing ma­te­ri­als and meth­ods oth­er­wise ap­plied only in the mo­tor sport and aero­nau­tic in­dus­tries. Lim­ited to 667 units world­wide, these steel horses are priced from 45,000 eu­ros (S$72,000) to 80,000 eu­ros – and fully cus­tomis­able, of course.
