one of the hassle related to riding a bicycle is the need to lug along a bike lock or two. chances are, most of us will leave the lock on the bicycle when we go about pedaling which may look kind of unsightly. the Senza Bike Lock System designed by Jaryn Miller solved this issue by integrating the lock system for the bike into the bike itself. the handlebars form the first of the two lock system. it is designed as a three piece system, where the center piece remains in place on the bike while the two handles can be removed and lock together to form a lock.

cycling is an excellent way to keep fit but while long cycling trip is enjoyable, you will need to keep yourself hydrated to make up for the of fluid lost through perspirations. bottle cage and hydration pack are two common ways of keeping water handy while cycling. the problem is, reaching out for the bottle down below could be a dangerous affair, well, at least that’s what Showers Pass think so and apparently, due to such scenario, “races have been lost and riders have been injured by jettisoned water bottles.” so why not hydration pack? well, it adds weight on the rider and not to mention it is restrictive and unnecessarily warms the carrier’s back.

i can’t remember when was the last time i hit the gym but as i recall, among the sea of exercise equipment, the rower was my favorite. mainly because it has a video screen upfront that shows your ‘boat’ against a competitor that kept my eyes occupied but that’s where the thrill ends. at the end of the day, i’d still be stuck in an air-conditioned room with bunch of folks smelling of sweat. alternative to the gym rower, is to hit the water for some real-deal rowing but that’s quite hassle, unless you happen to live next to a lake. for urban folks, The Rowbike might be the answer to monotonous rowing in the gym and the real deal rowing experience.

Lunartic is a project from Loughborough Design School student Luke Douglas. the design combines different tire sizes with belt drive and tubless (and hubless) rear wheel. according to its designer, putting the moving parts within the rear wheel space creates “a product that is the size of a small wheel bicycle but with the comfort and performance of one with a large wheel.” Continue reading Lunartic belt-drive bicycle makes hubless wheel a reality
