    This is the raptor bicycle (technically a tricycle) built by Norwegian artist Markus Moestue. I would ride that. I would ride that ALL NIGHT LONG. Not in the street though, it doesn't have a bike light. Could you imagine getting rear-ended by that thing? HEAVEN. I got the... / Continue →

    This is the Motoped Survival Bike Black Ops Edition. It's the perfect vehicle for getting around during the zombie apocalypse. I mean, provided you can't score a tank. Or a hot air balloon. Or a boat. If you're in the woods hunting zombies though, it's perfect. If you're ... / Continue →

    Get down from there, bike -- you're not a plane! WARNING: A VERY solid "OH F*** OFF!" from the cyclist right before he gets hit. This is a video of a London cyclist who gets hit by a car, catches air, then slides down the hood of the car and lands on his feet. If I were t... / Continue →

    This is the Turbospoke exhaust system for bicycles from Vat19 ($24). It consists of a durable plastic card that gets hit by your wheel's spokes (like kids used to do with baseball cards), the sound of which is amplified through the plastic exhaust pipe. The system comes with ... / Continue →

    You can call me a sissy all you want, but I got sweaty palms watching this. Just keep in mind that if you do decide to call me a sissy I will punch you in the face. Because, while I'm genuinely terrified of falling 120-feet to my death on a bicycle, I am not afraid of some go... / Continue →

    In news that brings back terrifying memories of Large Marge, Pee-wee Herman's tricked-out bike from Pee-wee's Big Adventure is currently for sale on eBay. I am going to buy it. I am going to buy it, then fly it to the moon like in E.T. "They didn't actually fly TO the moon i... / Continue →

    I'm sorry, but that pizza is not big enough to warrant cutting. I SAID PICK IT UP AND EAT IT. This is the Fixie Pizza Cutter from DOIY (~$25). It looks like a little fixie bike and cuts pizza. How neat would it be if you had a pet squirrel and trained it to ride this thing a... / Continue →

    This is the $610 AeYo (as in "AeYo -- what the f*** are you doing?"), a new piece of exercise/transportation equipment that combines the excitement of Rollerblading with the safety of added stability and the appearance of trying to hump a little robot as it speeds away backward... / Continue →

    This is a short video of French bicyclist François Gissy setting a new world record by hitting 263km/h (~163mph) on a hydrogen peroxide powered rocket bike. That seems dangerous. I've probably hit 25mph on my bike before and I felt like my face was going to melt off. Then I ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a bike broken down into all its individual components by photographer Todd McLellan. You know, I just recently got back into biking again after my doctor told me my constant inactivity and beer consumption were turning me into a fat corpse. He keeps it real ... / Continue →

    Seen here practicing for the circus, Richie Trimble provides us with a first-person view of what it's like to ride his nearly 15-foot "Stoopidtall Bike'. The bike measures 12-feet to the pedals and 14.5 to the seat. That's high. Almost as high as you'd have to be to think a ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a bike headlight that projects your current speed on the road in front of you. It was hacked together using a speedometer, a little projector, and a Raspberry Pi computer. As someone in the comments pointed out, i t would be awesome if they can eventually g... / Continue →

    This is artist Jimmy Kuehnle's invisible bike. It's made out of clear Lexan panels and, I don't know about you, but I can still see it. Jimmy's outfit: also cannot be unseen. I actually reached out to invisible jet owner Wonder Woman to see what she thought of Jimmy's bike, ... / Continue →

    This is a pair of deer antler bicycle handlebars designed by Taylor Simpson. Granted there's no brake attachment, but let's not kid ourselves, if you've got a pair of deer antler bicycle handlebars you're a hipster and riding a fixie anyways. That said, I just switched out my... / Continue →

    This is the Handlebar Minibar (links to Kickstarter page) by Yannick Reading (of attaching a train horn to a bike fame). Basically you cut the ends of your existing grips off the handlebars, then stuff these little plugs in. Unfortunately, each bottle only holds 5ml, so even ... / Continue →

    This is Trotify, a wooden device powered by your bike's front wheel that makes it sound like you're a horse clopping along down the road whenever you're riding. There's no horse though, it's just you and your handlebar mustache on a bicycle. The £19.99 (~$32) kits come with e... / Continue →

    This is a recycled cardboard bicycle built by Izhar Gafni. It can allegedly support a rider up to 300-lbs (although their ass will engulf the seat) and is unaffected by water or humidity because it's been coated with anti-water and humidity stuff. I'm scientific! In an articl... / Continue →

    Want to travel back in time and go to prom because you never did? You're a waste of a time traveler. But for those of us with serious time-traveling aspirations comes this line of DeLorean brand bicycles. Just add a bike basket, toss a flux capacitor in there, and you'll be ... / Continue →

    This is a video from the helmet-cam of Marcelo Gutierrez as he barrels down the stairs of Monserrate Mountain in Bogata, Columbia as part of the RedBull Devotos de Monserrate 2012 race. It kind of made me motion-sick to watch. Motion-sick AND feel like a sissy. Because there... / Continue →

    This is The Hornster, an $8,000 bicycle with a 178-decibel Airchime KH3A train horn attached powered by a SCUBA tank. For reference, 140db can cause permanent hearing damage, and the average shotgun blast is around 170db. Not cool. You honk at me with this thing and 1. I'll ... / Continue →
