Bridgestone’s Radical Airless Tire Is Making Its Way To Bicycle

We have seen a handful of airless tires for bicycles, but to date, it has not seen wide spread adoption. That’s kind of odd, because we can’t see why cyclists don’t want to go punctuate-free. Anywho, perhaps the answer is not as simple as going all rubber, or putting holes in solid rubber. Perhaps, more R&D has to be done to validate this still new tire technology? Speaking of validate, perhaps Japanese tire giant Bridgestone’s solution could be the answer? Continue reading Bridgestone’s Radical Airless Tire Is Making Its Way To Bicycle

Custom Bike With Real Car Tires Is What Dark Knight’s Bicycle Would Look Like

Bicycles with big, fat tires are all the rage now and to be honest, I will never understand how the extra fat will help in the ride experience both on and off-road. I mean, logically speaking, the wider the contact surface, the harder you will have to pedal, ain’t it? However, notwithstanding my own skepticism, I do somehow find bikes with fat tires oddly attractive. So, just imagine my excitement when I saw this custom bicycle that rolls on actual car tires. Created by Instructables member Mr-Mash, Car Wheel Bicycle, as it is called, was a result of trying to pick up the art of welding.

Hubless Bike Glows Like Tron’s Light Cycle, Heralds The Future Of Bicycle

4-wheel Power-assist Electric Bicycle Looks Like A Real Life Car Caricature

What you see here is a bicycle. No, really. It is a bicycle, an electric bicycle to be exact. Built by Swedish dude Mikael Kjellman, PopRide, as it is called, was born out of the desire to have the practicality of bicycle with the comfort and convenience of car. Actually, it is more like a pedal-powered kart because it has four wheels, but that argument is pretty irrelevant. The point is, this unique transportation gets you from point A to point B by means of your own leg power which provides some form of exercise much needed by urbanites. Continue reading 4-wheel Power-assist Electric Bicycle Looks Like A Real Life Car Caricature

Omata One: Finally, A Bike Speedometer That Actually Looks Like One

Bike computer feeds you with the data you need as you pedal away, but surely not everyone fancy the high-tech look of these gadgets. To some, it just spoils the ‘natural beauty’ of their pedal-powered stallion and Rhys Newman, former VP of Everyday Adventure and Advanced Design at Nokia and HERE, is one of the ‘some’. Instead lamenting about it, he bands together with a couple of bike enthusiasts to create an analog version of the bike computer, or as he calls it, a GPS speedometer, that will look like it belongs on a bike’s handlebar.

British Garage Inventor Creates A Fire-spewing Pulse Jet Powered Drift Trike

We all know how a drift trike works. You get one up to speed, abruptly turn the handlebar to one side, or tug the ‘handbrake’ to initiate the drift. It is exhilarating but apparently, not to all. Not to Colin Furze at least, the mad scientist British garage inventor who have turned many tame transportations into dangerous ones with jet power. His latest creation is not less dangerous and one that, not surprisingly, involves a pulse jet. Aptly dubbed Pulse Jet Drift Trike, it is a drift trike that up the drift game – thanks to a pulse jet stuck sideway at the rear Continue reading British Garage Inventor Creates A Fire-spewing Pulse Jet Powered Drift Trike

Stretching to nearly 3 meter long, Archont sports the familiar chopper easy ride silhouette, but that’s where the similarity ends.
