Attempting to reduce the weight of a bicycle is one of cycling's time honoured traditions. Whether you’re stripping a bike back to its essence in preparation for a hill climb race, or simply seeking to make your trusted steed just a little more lively, it’s likely we’ve all sought to shave a few grams off a build at one time or another.

Gustav Gullholm, better known in cycling circles as Dangerholm, has turned weight saving into an art form and we feature another of his masterpieces here. Vello, who operate in a different cycling sphere to Gustav but are no less ingenious, are also looking to do battle with the scales by designing an electric cargo bike that doesn’t weigh the same as a hippopotamus.
