It’s always good to have a backup plan. Take Iron Man for instance. What if your rockets should be in the shop or run out of fuel and the Stark limo is not available? Well, you had better have a second mode of transport.
Ever find yourself on your bike, only to be cut off by some jerk who doesn’t think bikes belong on the road? Or maybe you’re slowed down by some peds hogging the bike path. While you could try and ring your little bicycle bell or squeeze your meek little horn, you’re much more likely to get their attention with the horns they use on a train or an 18-wheeler.
This concept electric bike looks like an updated version of the original OSSA Monocasco bike that Santiago Herrero rode in the 1970s. However, this bike is an electric version, so you can use it pretty much anywhere without worrying about fuel efficiency and harming the environment.
Commuting on bikes is becoming more and more popular, with the rising costs in for fuel and public transportation and the reward that you can actually get fit while getting to work on time. Here’s an interesting concept for an urban commuter bike designed by Lauren Picard for Peugeot, the French car maker.
I read a lot about the “Green Revolution” over the last weekend, since it was one of the topics covered in my school Finals. You’d think that something with that name would have something to do with saving the environment, right?
City life is tough. Sure, you can walk most anywhere you want or take a cab, but having your own mode of transport gives you a bit of freedom. But cars are expensive. Bikes are good, but require a lot of energy on your part.
Have you ever wished that you had an electric bike, especially while hauling groceries home from the store? Well the Ridekick trailer promises to do everything an electric bike does, plus offer you some extra storage space as well.
I learned how to ride a bike pretty late in life (not sure if I can say that I really know how to “ride” one – “wobble” is more like it.) So when I’m tired of wobbling and the occasional swerve sometimes, I hop off and walk the rest of the way to my destination instead.
This is the ultimate motorcycle if you ask me. I have wanted a jet bike since I was a kid when that Battlestar Galactica TV Movie had Starbuck and Apollo flying around on jet bikes. This jet bike doesn’t fly, but it is something special – a 1929 style Harley with two jet engines.
We’ve seen robots that are capable of riding bikes (and unicycles) before, but usually they are slower than this guy. PRIMER-V2 also seems to have a ton of confidence. It’s crazy how good this little ‘bot is at riding his bike.
Okay, so it’s going to take more than having your name fashioned literally from the bike itself with the Write a Bike Concept, but it sure it a good start. (But for ways to really secure your bike from thieves, then you could try checking out the Bike Lock handlebars concept or check your bike into the Bike Vault.
If you bike a lot, you know that anything that distracts you from the road ahead will potentially cause an accident. I’ve had a few, and one of them actually just involved playing with my cycling computer.
I’ve seen a number of products which let you turn your bike wheels and spokes into a source of illumination, but I have to say that the Revolights are the best idea I’ve seen yet. Not only do they make your bike look almost as cool as a TRON lightcycle, but they actually help illuminate the road – possibly better than conventional headlights.
I like taking the occasional bike ride out into the country to relax and unwind from a long, hard week at work. However, I’ve had to forego impromptu bike trips and postpone because I found that the tires were out of air and that my pump or spare tires were nowhere to be found.
All the cars lining up the streets don’t make for a very pretty sight. The recent wave of erratic weather has also convinced me to start living a greener and more eco-friendly life, but you can’t really take your bike or electric car with you while you’re traveling – or can you?
