The Bike Wheel Bow is a unique weapon made from an old bicycle wheel. Obviously this isn’t going to work like your typical bow. It is more of a bow-like-sling-shot, relying on the stretch of the string, which is rubber tubing.
The title says it all. The House Of Solid Gold is selling a $1,000,000 extreme mountain bike for those who like to ride in luxury. This 24K Gold Extreme Mountain Bike is a hand-crafted bike made from the pricey precious metal.
We’re already working on self-driving cars, so a self-balancing bicycle shouldn’t be as surprising. And yet the Jyrobike is still a sight to behold. The children’s bicycle has electronics and a flywheel built into its front wheel.
The Sada Bike was created by Italian designer Gianluca Sada. Believe it or not, this is a bicycle with a frame that can fold down to the size of an umbrella, so you can carry it with you anywhere and store it wherever you like.
If you need to get around the city and don’t want to worry about parking, gasoline or traffic, then biking is a great way to get around. But if you have a long distance to travel, lots of uphill stretches or just don’t want to be all sweaty when you get to the office, an E-bike is an even better alternative.
Ride a bike, slice a pizza. You won’t be able to do this on a regular bike, but you will be able to do so using one of these clever bicycle wheel pizza cutters. Your fingers will be the ones doing the riding though, unless you’re the size of Alice after she drank the potion from the bottle with the “Drink Me” label.
The problem with a lot of personal vehicles is that they are too bulky. You just can’t get them on a bus or a train for instance, even if it is convenient otherwise. The URB-E has been specifically designed to be able to quickly fold and unfold.
At one of those iconic 80s movies of my childhood was Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. That movie started with Pee-wee Herman having his beloved bike stolen by thieves. What Pee-wee need was something like the LOCK8 smart bicycle lock.
Cycling has always been a good way to exercise, but the Varibike aims to make it even better, by working out a larger number of muscle groups simultaneously.
The Varibike was designed as a work-out solution as well as a therapy solution.
The original Paperboy was ahead of its time. While other arcade games in the 80s featured spaceships or medieval warriors, Paperboy only had, well, a paperboy. So it’s fitting that this homage to the game uses cutting edge technology.
There’s nothing more annoying than having your bicycle light give out in the middle of a night ride. It can also get dangerous. That’s why I think that a light that can be recharged using solar energy is a good idea, so you won’t have to remember to change batteries and get caught in the dark.
Popping bubble wrap is pretty calming. It’s an unconventional means to deal with anger or frustration, but hey, it works and it’s way cheaper than a session with a therapist.
Taking bubble wrap to the next level is LA-based comedy “imaginator” Eric Buss, who came up with the fascinating contraption that’s aptly called the Bubble Wrap Bike.
Clocks come in a bunch of shapes and sizes, but this clock made from a bike wheel is certainly unique. The resulting wall clock is quite big, but definitely something interesting to hang in your pad if you’re a bicyclist.
How’d you like to be able to fly over the traffic while riding your bike to work? This flying bike could be just the ticket. This remote-controlled bike actually left the ground for about five minutes.
