“You might think that if I were to look back, I’d say that the electric car is the biggest change I’ve seen. Tesla is a $50-billion-market-cap company after all — larger by that measure that Ford and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles!
But you’d be wrong.
Nor is Uber the biggest change I’ve seen. Nor the advent of high-end luxury air travel, low-cost carriers, or even a rising number of private jets.
High-speed rail? Not so much in the US. Flying cars? Nope.
By far the biggest transportation change I’ve seen is the explosion in bicycle riding.”

Next time you head to IKEA to purchase a bookshelf, cooking utensils, or storage boxes, you can also grab a new bike. Last year, the Swedish retailer announced that it was going to add a bicycle to its inventory of stylish, affordable decor items—and now, it’s finally available.
Like all IKEA products, the SLADDA bicycle is practical with a sleek and modern design. It has a lightweight aluminum frame, oil-free belt drive, disc brake, and a bell integrated in the hand brake. The frame is also rustproof to withstand any everyday wear and tear.
