    We’ve long known about the environmental and health benefits of biking, but the demands of savvy urban cyclists aren’t the same as those of weekend warriors. Designers are wising up and creating bikes and accessories that suit the modern lifestyle. We take a spin through high-design racks, accessories, performance apparel, and everything in between. is your online home in the modern world. Join us as we follow our team around the globe on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. Want more? Never miss another word of Dwell with our free iTunes app.


love the design piece, but question the applicability - the average bike is dirty and this is the city rider's largest problem...

Agree with Chris above. For those of us who are urban bikers, Nutcase is know to be less comfortable and sturdy than the dorkier designs. Bern is good. Check out Arkel (, Canadian made) for amazing panniers, etc. They are not always "modern looking" (or inexpensive) but they beat most other brands for their very user-friendly designs. I have, and love, the Metropolitan. Glad to see you covering bicycles.
