Fairwheel Bikes in Tuscon, Arizona has created what’s being called the world’s lightest bike. At six pounds, it’s even lighter than the top of the line bikes out there, which usually weigh in at about 15 lbs. The bike is made of primarily carbon fiber, and features a 10-speed rear gear and front and back brakes. There are no plans at the moment to put this $45,000.00 bicycle into production, but Fairwheel will custom build them for those who can afford it.
