Spotted at IKEA

IKEA sells bikes? Who knew?

On our way back from the bay area this afternoon we stopped at the IKEA store in Sacramento, California. While browsing through the store we came across this bike and matching cargo trailer.

Part of IKEA’s “Family Collection“, this bike is called the Sladda and features a belt-driven drive train.

The Sladda bike comes with a “25-year limited warranty on the frame and 10-year limited warranty on the belt drive”. IKEA also offers accessories for the bike, including a matching front rack, rear rack, and rear panniers.

And to top it off, IKEA offers a sweet matching cargo trailer for the Sladda. However, this trailer would work for any bike.

The Sladda bicycle retails for $499, however can be purchased for $399 at the “IKEA FAMILY member” price. [Becoming an IKEA FAMILY member is free and can easily be done on-site at the store.]

The Sladda cargo trailer retails for $179 [or $129 at the IKEA FAMILY member price.]

See my review of the Sladda Bike Trailer.

Spotted at West Shore Pizza

The next time you’re driving along the west shore of Lake Tahoe stop in at West Shore Pizza in Tahoma, CA. If not for their awesome pizza and collections of beers, but to see their collection of vintage bicycles hanging from the walls and ceiling.

Here are just a few…

West Shore Pizza has super friendly staff, good food, and a great atmosphere.

A fleet of Huffy Cranbrooks

Saw an ad today on a Burning Man Facebook Group to which I belong — a theme camp was selling of its camp’s collection of playa bikes. I pounced.


These are the bikes in the back of my truck. Almost all of them are Huffy Cranbrook cruisers. [Three are already spoken for for the upcoming burn.
