There are six billion people on the planet and the internet has a page or four thousand for every single one of them. Luckily, quite a few of them are about bicycles and some of them are beyond wildest dreams of wild dreams. The first on our list is the extravagant Blacktrail BT-01, a German blitzkrieg machine that costs close to 60 thousand Euros and the wheels alone cost a whopping twelve thousand!

Sure, technically it is a bicycle, but this two meter, hybrid-engine powered electric motorbi- bicycle can reach speeds up to a 100 kilometers per hour (60 mph) and when fully charged, the battery can drive you for 200 kilometers. Its construction is limited to 667 pieces, so if you want to get yours – start ordering now!

    What is the conversion into Cdn. dollars – …not that it is in my budget – but clicking at 100 kms per hr is pretty fast for being on a bike. Does it also have the option to cycle manually?

  • It’s around 80 thousand CAD, the wheels alone are 16.500 CAD :)

    In a way, you can use it for cycling, but since it’s so heavy and I’m pretty sure the ergonomics are as good as trying to pedal a tank…

About Comingthru

Coming Thru (or Coming Through - as that URL was taken) is a daily updated bike magazine - a collection of writings and links that relate to biking in its every form. The idea started from when Maarten met Markus decided to finally start collecting the things we like about bikes and talk about our everyday adventures in dodging moving objects at high speeds.The site is run by a collage of cyclists, most notably by Canadian Johanna MacDonald, Belgian Maarten Patteeuw and Finnish Markus Sandelin.

It all started in the spring of 2010, after a record breaking snowy winter when Markus bought a house 25 kilometers from the office and decided to handle the commuting with a bicycle. It turned out the bike wasn’t up to standards for that kind of stress and the first weeks were more tragicomic than glorious. Thus the idea began to brew to actually document this journey.
