there are more and more stylus’ available for touchscreen devices, from very minimally designed marker-style ones to high-end professional models. adobe’s ink and slide has some interesting features but costs $200(!). one company i was surprised to see with a design on the market was bic, better known for their cheap biro pens. the cristal stylus is a 2-in-1 pen with a standard nib at one end and a capacitive stylus at the other, and only cost a couple of pounds each!
the nyc features gear and brake cables routed through the frame, with front and rear disc brakes and a choice between 2 speed and 8 speed hub gears. another interesting feature is the built in front mudguard on the downtube; i’d love to see if this actually works. the front fork is also treated with glow-in-the-dark paint, absorbing light during the day and giving some additional visibility at night.
i saw these trays in utility in brighton recently and was really impressed by the material and build quality. they’re available in 14″ and 18″ sizes for £65 and £85 respectively.
