Billed as the world’s most efficient drivetrain, Driven is an entirely new form of bicycle drivetrain. Created by Danish bearing maker CeramicSpeed in collaboration with University of Colorado’s Mechanical Engineering Department, this groundbreaking 21-speed driveline, called Driven, uses ceramic plates in place of the traditional greasy sprocket and chains, and derailleurs, to achieve transmission and gear change. How we describe it may not be as impressive. So we suggest you catch the video of the prototype and marvel at this new invention.

We Are Totally Smitten By This 70s Vintage-Look Moped That Does 60MPH

So, you think moped is dead? Well, it is not and it never did ‘die’. It is always there, but today, we simply called it electric bicycles, or pedal-assist electric bicycle. But there is a major difference between an electric bicycle and a moped: a moped usually looks like a motorcycle. Call it a motorcycle-wannabe or whatever, but it does have its appeal (mostly because it looks like a motorcycle but does not require a license to ride). Moped is probably not huge in the stateside, but across the pond and in Europe, it is quite a huge deal, or at least it was anyways.

I Wish I Could Bring This LEGO Millennium Falcon Pedicab Home!

You may have seen this “Millennium Falcon” on May the 4th, Star Wars Day, plying Bryant Park in NYC. If you have and had ridden it, I am green with envy. This LEGO Millennium Falcon Pedicab (AKA cycle rickshaw) is, as the name suggests, a pedicab spruced up with the image of young Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon created by LEGO Master Builders with LEGO elements. I wouldn’t say it is a ride-on toy because, it is obviously a tricycle. So, this ain’t no child’s play. Continue reading I Wish I Could Bring This LEGO Millennium Falcon Pedicab Home!

This Is Bellcycles, The First Front-wheel Drive Bike Since 19th Century

You know bicycles? Wait. What am I talking about? Of course, everyone knows what a bicycle is, but the thing is, the bicycle you are about to see is like no other, well, at least not in the last 200 years. Meet Bellcycles, probably the only front-wheel drive bicycle since 19th century. For the uninitiated, when bicycle first came about, it had a front-wheel drive configuration, usually with a ridiculously large front wheel that was driven directly by a pair of pedals and sports a disproportionately small trailing wheel. It was a like a horse. No. Wait. I would say it was even more difficult to mount than a horse because of the insane height it had.
