New Thing for Bike

Posted: 21st February 2013 by affehaus in riding, things I need

The Ultimate Accessory for ‘Bicycle Chicken’! Taylor Simpson has crafted MONIKER from authentic deer antlers and recycled metal.  I love product that fulfills both form and function.  Cars and pedestrians (those not buried in cell phones) would be a little less inclined to crowd a cyclist that can cause some serious goring. I would SO […]

Neat Trick

…making a highway safety poster engaging and interesting.  Kudos to the Utah Highway Safety office for A. making the effort, and B. actually choosing a design that was clever. designed by Gary Sume

Bike Lane Chart

of NYC from Pop Chart Lab Funny– kind of makes the city look like a heart.  Which is exactly what New York needs: another analogy to suggest that they are both the center and the life-blood of the country.

All I can say is: I need to get me to Powder Mountain with somebody’s tricycle. And a pair of boots. via Neatorama

New Thing for Bike

Posted: 26th September 2011 by affehaus in cultural, design, geek stuff, riding

Having a bicycle reflect personal attitudes and expression can be a challenging thing. Sometimes it simply comes down to who has the coolest stickers. But now there is another option. Now there is… the Handlebar Mustache, by mustachejack. This is a mustache I made for my bicycle handlebars. I originally made it much thicker but […]

New Thing Is [not] Bike

Posted: 12th September 2011 by affehaus in riding, tech, things I need

Ryno Motors (love the name) has developed an electric, balance-assisted unicycle. It’s got a range of about 30 miles, and apparently tops out around 20 mph… but it looks like serious amounts of fun. Serious amounts of fun that you can ride in the local shopping mall. I’m having visions of a new breed of […]

Industrial Revolutions

Posted: 16th August 2011 by 7ucyClark in not a sports blog, riding, the List

Danny MacAskill. Stunt rider. New video. [cough] That is, Industrial Revolutions. The inimitable Mr. MacAskill has again proven himself unnaturally begotten, with fantastic control over bicycle & balance, and the ability to (almost) completely make gravity and space his personal bitch. I am in total awe… and hope that with time (and perhaps a floor-jack), […]

New Thing for Bike

Bike Fixtation.  It’s a self-service ‘bay’ where you can get your wheels spinning again after an equipment failure.  The idea is that they’ll be located near transit hubs, such as train stations, where the nexus of commuters would converge. “Bike Fixtation offers self-service kiosks on an extended-hours basis for bicyclists… You can buy a tube […]

Steampunk Motorcycle

Posted: 1st July 2011 by affehaus in cultural, design, riding, tech

The ARX-4 Steampunk, created by Mikhail Smolyanov. Powered by, if I understand correctly, half-a V8, split down the length.  The design was inspired by “racecars of 20’s equipped by airplane’s engines.” If there was a machine that took the distilled essence of ‘cool’, and manufactured things from that raw material…  the ARX-4 is what this […]

The Triple Back-Flip.  Every bike should have one. Jed Mildon gets 3 full rotations and a perfect landing.  That’s impressive, sure… but watching the video, the thing that made my [redacted] clench? the POV of him going down the decline.  And pedaling. found via Geekosystem
