Aston Martin Brough Superior AMB 001 Motorcycle Right Side

What the heck is going on? Aston Martin teamed up with Brough Superior to make a motorcycle? Harley Davidson is making e-bikes? Time to short some stocks. Read on for a bit more on this craziness. (more…)

Let me start off by saying this strange little electric folding bicycle isn’t going to replace your main bike. The JupiterBike 2.0 is built for extreme portability and mobility, for example; in the trunk of your car, your airplane, boat, or RV. The Jupiter Electric Folding Bike can go 15-mph and has a range of 10-miles on a single charge. Not to shabby for something that can find in a backpack. More pictures and video of the JupiterBike 2.0 after the...

IKEA, the inexpensive Swedish furniture company, is now making a bicycle. Let’s get right to the important parts. The IKEA SLADDA will set you back $499, it comes with a belt-drive (no rusty chain), an automatic two-gear system, has an aluminum frame, rear coaster brake , and front disc brake. There are also some accessories you can add on to the bike (shown in the pictures) like a front rack, rear rack, or  a trailer. ...

Not sure what it is that draws me to bikes with fat tires. You know, like the Mongoose Beast, Dolomite, and Hitch style bikes. Yes, I know that they are horribly inefficient and have extra weight and rolling resistance. But they just look so cool. So, why not take it up a notch by using your old car tires and pop them on your bike? Well that is just what Mr-Mash did with his instructable....

Every time I walk around San Francisco I see bikes locked up to poles that are totally stripped. Like the picture below. Pretty sad, as bikes aren’t cheap. Fortified Bicycles aims to change this with a bike that isn’t exactly theft-proof, but is better than most. Plus, they back up their bike (and lock combination) so that if your bike is stolen, they will replace it in one day. It doesn’t...

Electric bikes aren’t exactly cheap. Heck, you probably already have a dust covered bicycle sitting in the garage. The Electron Wheel ($799) is a 30 second upgrade that will make your existing bicycle and electric one. The Electron Wheel is a quick front wheel swap that offers a 250W motor, speeds of up to 20-mph, and a 30-mile range. It even connects to your smartphone so that you can let it know when to assist you with some electric power. An all-in-one solution for converting...

Imagine a water bottle on your bike that was self-filling. That is what Kristof Retezár hopes to create with his Fontus water bottle. The idea is simple enough; the water bottle uses solar cells to create an electrical temperature change which creates condensation. The condensed water is then stored in the water bottle for drinking. Sounds good at first glance but it seems to only create one drop of water per minute. After more than 30 experiments, I finally achieved a constant drop-flow of one drop of condensed water per minute. After...

Inventor Benjamin Krempel is about to drop his latest gadget, the PumpTube, on Kickstarter next year. The idea behind PumpTube is that bicycle riders will no longer need to pump up their tires compensating for air seepage. The PumpTube works by drawing air in through a one-way valve on the valve stem. This air goes into an outer layer of the tube which is compressed as the tire turns. This air is then pushed into the main inner tube. Once the set pressure is achieved no...

John Foden and Yannick Read live in the UK and love two things very much "“ bikes and flying.  Merge those two passions together and you have the XploreAir Paravelo flying bicycle.  Sure it is still not fully funded...

Another one of those things I don't need but really want to have.  The MonkeyLectric Monkey Light Pro is a bicycle wheel display system.  This LED lighting system can create persistent or animated images on your bike's wheels as you ride around.  You also get a bit of software which lets you design custom images.  Not the design...
