Unhappy with the fact that the past two decades have seen the bicycle manufacturing industry disappear almost completely from Europe, twin brothers Bob and Tom Schiller set out to bring manufacturing back to The Netherlands with Mokumono Cycles. Taking pages out of the automotive manufacturing playbook, Mokumono developed an innovative, automated production process to create their unique frames, using two mirrored pieces of aluminum welded together by a robotic 3D laser. The frame is designed with floating rear stays and a carbon fiber front fork to ensure it’s strong and lightweight while still giving you a smooth ride. Rounding out the list of components is an impressive collection of names and parts you’re no doubt familiar with. Shimano 105 grade hydraulic flat mount disk brakes. Gates CDX Carbon Belt Drive System. Internal brake and gear cable routing. Brooks Cambium C15 saddle made from vulcanized natural rubber and an organic cotton top. IXOW Gravity Locks on the wheel axles and seat post. Shimano Alfine 8-speed or 11-speed hub. It truly is a commuter bike unlike any other.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
