It’s not about how far and fast you ride or how many calories you burn.  It’s about creating a more efficient and fun way to explore your town. I am just a simple guy that likes to ride his bike for fun and easy transportation. My objections and problems are the same as yours and if I can design a bike that inspires me to ride, I’m pretty sure you’ll like to ride it, too. For me, the art is finding the perfect balance of comfort, style, performance, quality and price.

Benno Ballooner: $999+

"To be honest, after I made a Ballooner prototype a few years ago, I found myself riding it and enjoying it more than any other bike I have ever owned. The very balanced geometry is comfortable and sporty, which allows for a longer, more purposeful ride. Elevated specs, including hydraulic disc brakes and up to 27-speeds, provide a smooth, almost effortless riding experience." - Benno

All in all, the Ballooner is a real gentleman: humble, polite, elegant and extremely capable. A modern retro-style everyday commuter.

  • 8, 24, or 27-speed models, or an 8-speed internal gear system
  • Optional rear rack to carry your 
  • Available in Step-Through and Step-Over geometry, in one frame size that fits most people.

Boost-E: $4999

The Boost is the bike I designed to overcome our objections to using our bikes more often. Take a ride on this Bosch equipped electric bike and you’ll understand why “too hilly”, “too far”, “I don’t want to get sweaty” and “I can’t carry enough” are no longer good reasons to leave your bike at home. The Boost will have you looking for excuses to go on additional errands. This compact and extremely sturdy e-utility bike makes transportation fun and easy. It’s designed to carry heavy loads and has an interchangeable rack system that you can pick and choose from to fit your needs. The strong frame and big tires are the perfect pairing for the powerful Bosch motor. People describe the feeling of riding with Bosch’s leading e-bike mid-drive system like suddenly having super-powers. I call it the Boost.
