Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

"Great Scott!"




The idea for The DeLorean Bicycle began much like the DeLorean vehicle itself - a goal to build a vehicle of style and substance with innovative features that would represent a value for both the passionate and casual cyclists alike.

A conversation started between good friends Stephen Wynne (Delorean Motor Company) and Marc Moore (Entrepreneur, Passionate Cyclist & Former Delorean Owner) about building possibly building a bicycle that could bear the DeLorean name, but do so without giving up anything to best bicycle manufacturers of today. Exploration of cycle design had begun. The material of the frame was selected in a more obvious fashion - the only choice was stainless steel. This was absolutley essential, as it maintained the DeLorean connection to be valid and substantial.

This proved to be an excellent choice of materials. Stainless steel for bicycle construction, while fairly new, has some fantastic benefits for cyclists. Bicycle ride quality is made up of a number of factors, some of the more important aspects being:


Smoothness - Complete road isolation while still maintaining a connected feeling to the terrain.

Durability - Corrosion is absolutley minimized, a very high fatigue life, low impact resistance, and ease of repair.

Weight - Not exactly tied to ride quality, but more affecting the overall ride feel and performance.

The stainless steel used in the DeLorean Bicycle is designed to excel in all areas of ride quality. The Italian-made Columbus XCR™ tubing is well known to be some of the most supreme stainless steel used for bicycle frame manufacturing today.

The DeLorean Bicycle gives a ride combined with a style that makes it equally at home next to your DeLorean during the car show as it would the weekly road race for the city limit signs. Even if you have never owned a DeLorean, the name and style are iconic and unmistakeable.



A true all around machine, the DeLorean Anyday model has a super efficient & clean running belt drive transmission, making it easier to climb bigger hills or go faster on the flats with the 11-speed internally geared hub that comes as standard equipment.To keep things under control, the Anyday has front & rear hydraulic disc brakes; wet or dry, stopping power is always more than sufficient. To help you be seen in low light or at night, the wheels are coated with a new luminescent coating that under regular lighting looks dark, but once lights are shined on them they almost appear to "turn on." This makes that early morning or late evening ride much safer. An Italian made gel saddle increases your comfort, as well as a full carbon fork providing precise steering response with room to even install larger treaded tires for dirt roads or even path riding.Wherever or however you want to ride, the DeLorean Anyday delivers the style and innovation that is Delorean with hand-made Italian craftmanship that can take you anywhere.

Price: $5,495...........

Bikes named after car makers are always overrated...

So I read down to "the only choice was stainless steel," scrolled back up to look at the picture, noticed the internally geared belt drive, thought "oh dear," and then scrolled down to the price. Then I finished reading.

I associate that price range with weight-weenie roadies, which does not exactly seem like the target market for this bike. It seems kind of neat, but I don't see how they expect it to sell, really.

This is like a BMW or Ferrari bike, except slightly cooler. (actually I'd take one of the colnago ferrari bikes)

Honda should hire 3rensho to do a road bike, with some sw8 limited edition shimano group.

So it's a steel commuter with a belt drive, IGH, disc brakes, and Halo coated rims. Can it do time travel?

You didn't list a flux capacitor capable of handling 1.21 gigawatts; so no.
