The Canyon Speedmax CF SLX Triathlon Road Bike ($TBA) may look like a concept, but it'll actually be hitting the roads this December. The Speedmax is called the complete system because it incorporates everything a competitive rider needs directly into the frame. These integrations include a hydration bottle for effortless drinking, food storage for energy bars, gels or salt tablets, a top grip with outstanding ergonomics, and improved damping at the arm pads, extension grips, and basebar grips. And in the top tube you get a space for your tool bag. A lightweight neoprene case equipped with two CO2 cartridges, two tire levers and a spare tube. Visit Canyon's site for the rest of the specs.

Ok, buying a fat bike for under $500 is unheard of. But buying one with an electric motor is insane. And if Sondors have their way, they'll make us all crazy with their Sondors eBike ($499). Besides being the most affordable eBike ever, it offers a powerful 350 W motor, a top speed of 20 mph, and a maximum range of 50 miles. But why a fat bike? Well, that's simple. If you have the power, then why limit where you can go. Their bike features all terrain tires that allow you to handle any environment in any weather condition. This includes taking your bike out in the snow or sand. Check out their Kickstarter campaign today.
