    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 result of a £28 (~$43) Happy Ride Vibrating Bike Seat (links to NSFW adult toy website). The seat cover vibrates against your privates while you ride, making exercising way more enjoyable. You know, it's a shame God didn't make exercising feel better on your priv... / Continue →

    I posted about Monkey Lights back in 2009, and now the company's back with a NEW AND IMPROVED version with cooler animations. I want to be able to spell out words with them, and I want the front wheel to say, 'IF YOU CAN READ THIS' and the back one, 'DIE SCUMBAG!'. The new Mo... / 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 motorcycle powered by a 150hp Rotec Radial R3600 airplane engine. It was pieced together by German mechanic Frank Ohle, who, God willing, has future plans to bolt wings to the thing and speed it straight off a cliff and into our hearts. Or a ravine. Over the cours... / 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 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 →

    This is the Fliz bike. Unlike traditional bikes, it doesn't have pedals. You hang suspended from the frame above and run. Or walk. Or speed down steep hills pretending you're Superman. I'm a bird, I'm a plane, I'm going to die. I have no clue if the bike is even practical... / Continue →

    Because building your own scrap metal Batpod is like THE THING to do in Vietnam, here comes another one. No clue if this is the same guy as before, but I doubt it because this guy actually wears a helmet. The smarter Batpod builder we'll call him. This is a fully functiona... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy riding off on an ultra-tiny bicycle. It's small. Like, even smaller than the bicycle a Cabbage Patch Doll would ride. No word where the mini-bike came from, but I suspect brobro was the victim of a deceptive advertising scam. Hey, we've all been the... / 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 a replica of Shotaro Kaneda's bike from Akira, built by Masashi Teshima over the past seven years for a cost of around $120K. It's the only replica with the official blessing of Akira's creator Katsuhiro Otomo, and now Teshima is riding the bike across Japan to raise m... / Continue →

    This is a video of some guy in Russia with a transforming bike that can go from lowrider to skywalker and back again while being ridden. Me? I can't do anything while being ridden except moan "OMG, I can't believe this is really happening!" Hit the jump for the thing in acti... / Continue →
