Hop onto IKEA’s fuss-free and impeccably-designed Sladda bicycle
Is there anything you can’t get at IKEA? From weird and wacky Halloween headgear like the Lattjo brain hat to the remarkably well-designed and affordable Groggy wine opener, there’s little you can’t find at this furniture megastore.
Adding to their all-encompassing hodgepodge of household goodies is the Sladda bicycle that retails for $899. While IKEA isn’t exactly reinventing the wheel with this offering, it does differ distinctively from most bicycles – instead of a metal chain, the bicycle utilises a rubber belt-drive, making maintenance a breeze. The bike also boasts an automatic two-gear system that’s integrated in the rear hub, so there are no exposed wires that could potentially rust.
Add in a 25-year guarantee on the frame and a 10-year guarantee on the belt drive, and that gives us much more confidence in its new product. Like many of IKEA’s offerings, the customers can attach complementary products like a front rack ($59.90) and a rear rack ($49.90) that’ll make it easy to haul your groceries home.
And before you ask, yes, there’s certainly some assembly required. But that’s half the fun. isn’t it?
