Handlebar Basket

These look great!  I'm not usually the type to post new gadgets, but these look strong AND stylish in a big way.

Thanks, Alex.

Orient Tandem Pacer

This thing is super wierd.  I believe it's some sort of assisted-pedaling machine.

You Suck at Photoshop When.... make a monstrosity like this.  It's like they didn't even consider how it could work.  The oval front wheel with two hubs that are chained together is hilarious.

The Dutch Bike

This would be an amazing thing to have, especially in a college town on a game day.  You can look at some other types of cargo bike and potentially buy one on the link.

Fixie-styled Cargo Bike?


It's hard to believe but it's true.  Somebody has build a crazy cargo bike with fixie styling.  The front is so hip looking with it's matching tire and bartape, but the back is just a mountain bike with a shopping cart.

Bicycle Rodeo

This is great.  A must-watch for sure!

Some guy in Toronto jacked a ton of Bikes

It's not my usual style to post a news article, especially one that doesn't focus on any specific bikes, but read these quotes and try not to read the rest of the article:

"What exactly was he planning to do with 2,865 bicycles?"

"An additional 200 bikes were seized in Mr. Kenk’s home. Ten landlords around the city reported that their garages had been rented by Mr. Kenk and were bulging with bicycles. As the police gathered the mounds of bikes, they also found cocaine, crack cocaine, about 15 pounds of marijuana and a stolen bronze sculpture of a centaur and a snake in battle."


Wow.  There's a pointless mod.  The page says that they were going for a xtra-cycle type cargobike, but this seems like the most difficult way with the smallest payoff.  The bike is barely extended at all, even though there are a ton of new welds.

Ridiculuos Gear Fixing Methods

I've searched far and wide for the most impossibly ridiculously cheap ways to make fixed gear wheels.  Finally, and completely by accident, I found a thread on a forum ( which covers all of the cheap and dangerous ways people lock up thier wheels.  Some methods includ bolting a track cog to a disc brake, and jamming an allen wrench in your prawls.  One person even suggests holding the freewheel to the hub with zip-ties, a method my room-mate used without brakes to get around for an entire summer.  Dangerous!

Schwinn Replica Low Rider on CL Huntsville

My friend, Brian, bought this one.  It's got high-spoke-count radial wheels, velour banana seat, fenders, apehangers.  It's fuckin' rad.  I rode it today.  I've never ridden a lowrider before, and i hadn't expected the fork to feel so wierd.  It's like it turns in the middle of the bike instead of the front.  Also, the crank arms are incredibly short.

Random Bike Stuff on CL Huntsville


Why would you not list at least a few of the things?  Where did they come from?  Why don't you want them anymore?  It looks mostly new.  I can see some bars, a few tires, and a cable lock, but what else is there?  Odd.
