MONoPOLE Toolbike e-Cargo Bike CHF 7’200/$8,135
Available in three sizes, with an optional cargo rack crate and propelled by a hidden Mahle X35 e-motor with a Pinion C.1 6 gearbox, the Toolbike from MONoPOLE is the aesthetic blend of a cargo bike and a city bike, made in Europe. It is agile and powerful, durable and low-maintenance. And it’s the first bike that uses a Gates belt not only for the drivetrain but for a completely new steering mechanism.
There’s so much going on with the Toolbike and it’s by far the most advanced and capable-looking cargo bike we’ve seen, so roll on over to MONoPOLE to indulge in its exceptional website.
Maybe it’s the desert tan, or the racks, but there’s something tough looking about the Tout Terrain Pamir e-Touring bike. Tout Terrain is known for its European-manufactured touring bikes, and with e-bikes taking over Europe and the US, the brand just introduced its e-Expedition line with the Pamir.
This range of electrically assisted touring bikes utilizes the Pinion E-Drive system – an innovative development that combines motor and transmission in one compact component. It also features a newly developed, European-made aluminum frame with integrated battery compartment and optional range extender. Complete with modular racks, all-terrain tires, and many customizable options – the Pamir is a very capable option of e-assisted touring.

If you have nice wheels and ride hard, tire inserts can dramatically extend the life of both your tires and rims. Yet, up until this point, CushCore only offered beefy, all-mountain PRO inserts and lightweight XC inserts. Today, CushCore announced the Trail line, which provides an all-new option for riders looking for a performance/weight balance between the brand’s PRO and XC inserts.
Additionally, CushCore Trail was engineered to provide more progressive sidewall support: the harder you push, the more support you’ll feel while enabling supple tire response on flat corners and a stable sidewall when cornering at high speed.
Like all CushCore tire inserts, Trail absorbs shock and vibration, improves cornering, and prevents flats/rim damage.
Tire Widths: 2.1″-2.6″
Inner Rim Width: 22mm-35mm
Includes: (2) CushCore tire inserts, (2) 44mm CushCore presta air valves, valve core tool, installation instructions, and rim stickers.

In 2017 a team of 5 set out on an attempt to carry mountain bikes strapped to packrafts to paddle class 3 and access the unridden big mountain line of the imposing Dillon Cone. That attempt was unsuccessful. In 2022 three of the original team went back, to try again…
