Bugatti and PG's bicycle collaboration weighs less than 12 pounds and costs $39,000

To give hardcore bicyclists something to drool over, PG recently teamed up with Bugatti to design and manufacture the perfect urban bicycle. With PG’s expertise in bike development and Bugatti’s iconic design and reputation, this high-tech bike is unrivaled in quality, construction, and (of course) price.

What immediately sets the PG Bugatti Bike apart from the rest is its incredibly light weight frame. Carbon fiber makes up more that 95 percent of the material, allowing it to weigh less than 12 pounds. At this weight, a cyclist might forget they’re even riding anything at all. Upon request, each PG Bugatti Bike features customization to match the esteemed car company’s own Bugatti automobiles. Various colors are available via special paints, colored carbon, along with numerous types of available leather options. Though, what ends up bringing the entire bike together lies with Bugatti’s pearl oval.

Aside from its aesthetic, the bicycle features an array of top-notch materials. Its frame, fork, rims, handlebar, seat, seat post, crank, and brakes all feature the highest quality carbon fiber available on the market today. By pairing this with reinforced cross sections, the bicycle ensures maximum rigidity — which remains a welcome feature considering its exorbitant price tag (more on that below).

PG handcrafted all its carbon components in Germany, using techniques found only in the motorsport and aeronautic industries. In other words, owners of this collaboration get to ride the lightest and most rigid bike possible.

When owning a bicycle created by one of the top car manufacturers, people expect a certain level of finesse. Not only is the bike’s frame incredibly light, PG optimized all cross sections to achieve optimal aerodynamics at high speeds. Just like its cars, Bugatti helped design the bicycle to be fast.

PG and Bugatti only manufactured a mere 667 of these worldwide, making it an extremely limited run bicycle. As touched on above, the companies individually tailor each bike specifically to the rider and along with its high-quality parts and materials, set a starting price tag for the collab at an astounding $39,000. Like Bugatti’s stunning lineup of automobiles, quality comes at a price.

I turned my van into an office with a battery-powered AC and heat pump

Like a lot of remote workers, I know I’m lucky to be able to work from home. I have a home office with a comfy leather chair, a skylight, and an oversized doofus of a dog, Marty, who reclines adorably on the couch behind me for Zoom meetings. But I’d also be lying if I didn’t admit I go a little stir crazy from time to time, yearning to work from somewhere other than the same place I eat, sleep, and relax.

How about a van? I bought my 1990 Mitsubishi Delica for camping, but it always seemed like it could serve as a mobile office with a view, if not for one critical shortcoming: For nine months out of the year in Portland, it’s too cold, and for the other three, it’s too hot. Without adding thousands of dollars for a battery power system, my best bet was heavy socks and gloves. But EcoFlow gave me a glimmer of hope at CES 2023 when I spotted the EcoFlow Wave 2. With an onboard battery, it promised to heat or cool anywhere, no external power system needed.

I was wrong. E-bikes are so practical, they’re a transit cheat code
An Aventon Level 2 ebike sits outside a grocery store.

Confession: Despite loving both bikes and gadgets, e-bikes never excited me. Compared to my bicycle, e-bikes seemed unfair. Compared to my motorcycle, they seemed slow. Compared to my car, they seemed impractical.

But with $1,500 federal e-bike rebates potentially on the horizon at part of E-Bike Act, I decided it was past time to reconsider. Not just because 30% off would make them way more accessible, but because the entire idea that e-bikes could be worthy of a rebate changed the way I looked at them: less as toys, more as transit. Had I written off an entire way of getting around because I was looking at it the wrong way?
