Priority Bicycles: Maintenance-Free, Cycling Made Easy

Priority Bicycles take the standard bike to the next level with an easy-to-assemble, easy-to-ride, transport that requires no regular maintenance. Founder Dave Weiner started Priority because he said he was “frustrated with bicycles on the market, noting that with all the industry innovation, the recreational cyclist was still suffering the same old product while professional riders enjoyed all the spoils. Priority Bicycles do away with chains which have been known to ruin clothes. Instead they feature clean belt drives that require no lubrication, are rust-proof, and impervious to the weather. Belt drives are, quite simply, more durable, quieter, and cleaner. Priority Bikes also use bolts Read More

LEIF: The Everywhere Snowboard

If the winter is just not enough time to get all the snowboarding in that you prefer, then consider picking up LEIF, an “everywhere snowboard” that looks kind of like a skateboard but operates as its more wintry counterpart. With LEIF, you can go anywhere the concrete leads you — flat ground, uphill, you name it — while maintaining control of your board at speeds up to 20 miles per hour. As the folks behind the Kickstarter state, this allows you to turn “pavement into powder.” You can still get one at the early bird price of $1,299 if you Read More

Daily Bicycle Grips: Add Class To Your Bike

Want to add some style and sophistication to your bicycle’s handlebars? Why not install a couple of Daily Bicycle Grips? These use premium materials, including mahogany, aircraft grade aluminum and brass fittings, for a bike grip that will last for at least as long as you have your bike. (Lifetime? You betcha.) The method of manufacturing involves press fitting wood onto an aluminum core. The core helps to fit the grips on any handlebar with ease, and is drilled and tapped together to allow two brass screws that will act as fasteners. You can pick up yours today through the Read More

Nutlock: Lock Your Nuts If You Value Your Bike Wheels

On August 6, Nutlock will launch a crowd-funding effort through Kickstarter, but we’re telling you about it now so you can get in on the early-bird rewards starting from $19. The goal of the company, in its own words, is to “put an end to bicycle wheel theft, protecting cyclists’ investments in quality bikes and improving overall security.” Here’s how it works: replace the existing hex-nuts or quick release skewers around your bicycle wheel. Similar to modified lug nuts for which only the vehicle owner has the corresponding wrench in order to prevent car wheel theft, once Nutlock is firmly Read More

Meet Russia 1, Or ‘The Batmobile Tram’

Russia 1, or the Batmobile Tram, is the latest and greatest piece of public transportation from Russia, and the Moscow Times has all the details for us. In comments to the news site, Atom’s Alexei Maslov, a participant in the project describes Russia 1 like this: “It takes the form of crystal — a priceless stone in a metal shell. And crystal because it reflects the city in which it moves, meaning the tram will assimilate into any landscape — forest, industrial zone, any sort of modern buildings.” The overhanging nose allows the driver a wider view by about 30 percent over the traditional tram. It holds 190 to 270 passengers, and Read More

Freedom Trax: A Powered Track Device For Wheelchairs

Being a pro-military guy, the first thing that comes to mind when I hear about Freedom Trax is how much it can help some of our wounded warriors regain some of their independence in return for the sacrifices they’ve made for our country. That’s why we would really like to see this reach its funding goal in the next 17 days. Freedom Trax is a motorized endless track device that mounts to any standard manual wheelchair. The device allows the user to traverse terrain such as sand, mud, high grass, gravel and snow unassisted. It’s got a long way to Read More

Solar Roadways: The Energy Revolution Begins

Solar Roadways is a new Indiegogo project that has already Hulk-smashed its $1 million funding goal. What’s so awesome about it? Well, for starters, it could completely change the way that we consume energy (for the better). That’s because it uses tons of solar panels to harness the power of the sun. You can drive on it, walk on it, ride a bike on it, etc. It’s self-heating, so it melts snow and ice. It can also charge your electric car, thus conquering the one big obstacle that allows oil companies to keep charging you a fortune. Solar Roadways will Read More

These unique modes of transport are lightweight and small and can be easily ridden on a sidewalk, in a store, etc. It’s like having your very own shopping cart, but only one that you can ride Read More
