Bike Luggage Charges For Air Travel

From Yellow Jersey Cycle Insurance for summer trips Smile

Bike luggage charges can be a pain. Every airline seems to handle bicycles in a completely different way, and charge completely different premiums to carry your bike box.

It a Reasonably Priced Bike BRILLIANT?

Why it is so hard to find a great bike at a reasonable price? Brilliant Bicycle Company

Somewhere along the line, bicycles became complicated. Speed and spandex overshadowed the fun and prices skyrocketed. But bicycles shouldn’t be ridiculously expensive or intimidating, so we set out to build high-quality bikes for a fraction of the cost and to bring the magic and lightheartedness of your childhood back to bicycling.

Lego Bicycle

If you imagine riding it, then pictures are not to scale.  From The Brothers Brick

Flickr user Vasil Vasil (Silvavasil_LEGO) takes a different approach than Chris did on the subject matter of bicycles. He has created a delicate and extremely elegant road bike where the vivid colours combined with the creative parts usage makes for a very pleasing model to view.

Hack an IKEA Stool to build a bike

In November 2012, Core77 made an article on their blog about one of my projects, a collection of 3D printed lampshades made to repair IKEA lamps. At the end of the page, the writer (Ray) made a suggestion :

“Where Andreas Bhend’s recently-seen IKEA hacks included instructions à la the Swedish furniture giant’s pictographic booklets, Bernier has seen fit to customize a part of the whole. But if they’re disparate yet equally creative approaches to DIY making, perhaps the next step is for the two to join forces: Andreas, if you’re reading this, we’d love to see you guys collaborate on a series of IKEA hacks with bespoke 3D printed parts and instructions…”

That’s exactly what we did.

Andreas is a student in the east of Switzerland while I work full time for le FabShop, a 3D printing startup in Paris (France).
We didn’t know each other, but were motivated by the project. Andreas took the train to Paris where we spent two days and a half doing this :

Icicle Tricycle Espresso Coffee Bike

Oh please, who doesn’t want one of these, stop dreaming of getting a regular espresso machine and hookup your kids next (insert any sport/club/activitiy played where an adult might drink coffee) event.  Hire me and I will ride it there.  And then leave it in your kitchen.  Only a wuss has a machine on a counter, blah, blah, blah.  You might as well roll your pant leg down and give up longboarding.

Dicyclet

This is just an interesting idea putting wheels parallel rather than in a line.  I wonder how it rides?

The wheel is one of the most basic inventions in history. Fabels thought it was an interesting idea to use the wheel itself as a vehicle. To solve balance-problems two parallel wheels were used. The driver is positioned under the axle, which connects the wheels the driver’s body functions as a counterweight. During acceleration the chair swings slightly forwards. During a breaking maneuver it swings backwards and with extreme braking it can even make several 360-degree loops. Driver and vehicle are one.

The Dicyclet is designed and built together with Maik ter Veer.

There are several copies of the Dicyclet that have been made without consulting the inventors. If you ever encounter one off(sic) these falsifications the author invites you to joyride it.
