    These Bandbox Bike Helmets Come Disguised As Stylish Hats

    Wearing a bike helmet can help keep you safe during everyday commute.  If you prefer accessorizing with a hat than a sporty vented helmet, though, you might want to look at Bandbox and their ever-growing collection of bike helmets. Designed to encourage cyclists to wear their helmets more frequently, the protective headgear is cleverly hidden underneath a selection of traditional hats.  Want to wear a wood felt fedora?  They got one.  How about a cowboy hat?  Yee-haw, they got that, [...]

  • Skylock Solar Powered Key Less Bike Lock Alerts You In Case It Is being Moved

    Skylock Solar Powered Key Less Bike Lock Alerts You In Case It Is being Moved

    We’re almost certain future bike locks are going to resemble the Skylock, which updates the traditional U-lock with a whole load of smart and connected technologies. Sure, maybe they won’t look the same, but the feature set is exactly what suits these modern connected times. Unlike traditional bike locks, it’s impossible to pick. No, they didn’t put a genius locking system into it — it just doesn’t open with a traditional key, so there’s no way to access the lock [...]

  • Stemlock Can Make A Bicycle Impossible To Steer

    Stemlock Can Make A Bicycle Impossible To Steer

    The Stemlock is a permanent bike add-on that renders the handlebar useless until unlocked. That means, whoever is riding can’t steer the bike properly, potentially resulting in a few minutes of entertaining bike accident videos. Get your cameras ready. Despite the potential for pranks (and the occassional injury), the Stemlock is actually intended as an extra layer of security for bikes. While a thief can obviously still pick it up and run with your bike after he manages to get [...]

  • Oh Look! An Almost Spill Free Cupholder For Your Bike

    Oh Look! An Almost Spill Free Cupholder For Your Bike

    We’ve seen a cupholder for bicycles before, but so far, I haven’t really found one that I can buy.  Hey, people who commute to work on bikes need to carry their morning coffee, too.  Maybe Bookman’s Cup Holder will finally be the one to bring bicycle riders that convenience. Designed to mount right on the bike, you simply attach it onto the handlebars using the integrated spring clamp with the cup area hanging out.  Again, make sure it’s hanging out, [...]

That’s right, someone made a mounting strap that’s custom-designed to hold a banana.  No more getting your bananas squished in a backpack or wrapping them up in a brown bag — your yellow, pulpy fruit [...]

  • Helios Adds Smart Handlebars To Your Bike

    Helios Adds Smart Handlebars To Your Bike

    There are plenty of ways to put a functional computer on your bike, from a phone with a bike app to one of Garmin’s dedicated gadgets.   Given that they’re mounted as add-ons, though, they are very high-risk for theft.  Helios Bars offer a more secure alternative, integrating the bike computer right onto the handlebars. Granted, the setup doesn’t provide you with a display panel for watching stats in real time.  It does, however, include a facility for feedback, namely rear-facing [...]

  • Carrera Foldable Helmet Compacts To A Third Of The Size

    Carrera Foldable Helmet Compacts To A Third Of The Size

    Granted, the Carrera Foldable Helmet is a little misleading.  Despite the name, it doesn’t really fold (not like the Proteus Helmet does), so don’t expect a helmet that you can square away in a side pocket of your backpack.  Regardless, it’s still a pretty innovative creation, stowing away in a compact size that should make storage just a little more convenient. When not in use, the helmet can be “folded” into a third of its size when fully deployed, allowing [...]

A universal bike mount designed to dock your phone onto the handlebars, it offers a quick way to turn your smartphone into a multi-purpose bike computer.  At the least, it lets you use your phone easily while you’re on the bike, giving you full access to the display [...]

  • Plume Is A Better Mudguard For Bicycles

    Plume Is A Better Mudguard For Bicycles

    Existing bicycle mudguards work well enough.  Well, aside from the fact that they’re usually ugly.  And that a lot of them aren’t very durable.  And that they’re really easy to steal.  The Plume is looking to change that. Billed as a “better mudguard,” it brings a streamlined design that makes it a better fit with the look of most bicycles in the market.  It’s slim, compact and unobtrusive, making for a mudguard that hardly makes a dent in your bike’s [...]

    Siva Cycle Atom Is A Kinetic Power Generator For Bicycles

    Taking your Glow-in-the-Dark Bicycle to work is one of your smartest ideas ever.  It helped you get in better shape, saved you a small fortune in gas, and allows you to act like a stuck-up treehugger while only feeling half-pretentious.  Now, if only it can get you laid, too, it will be your smartest idea ever.  While the Atom can’t help with that, it will let you reap one more benefit from your daily bicycle runs: using all that pedaling [...]

    Bike All Hangs Your Bicycle By The Saddle

    We’re no strangers to bicycle racks around these parts and we’re loving the creativity that’s going into a lot of them, from the carved-in style of the Bike Shelf to the freestanding talents of the Michelangelo Gravity Stand.  The Bike All, though, doesn’t just intend to be a rack for hanging your bike, it’s meant as an all-in-one spot for holding your daily bicycle accessories, too. Created by Colorado-based Board by Design, it’s a wall-mounted storage unit with a bottom panel [...]

    Scosche boomBOTTLE Puts Mobile Speakers In A Water Bottle Form Factor

    Your mobile speakers are cool.  If you want to mount them in specific places, though, like your bike frame or inside the car, you’ll need to buy (or, worse, improvise) new accessories.  Not the case with the Scosche boomBOTTLE, which comes shaped like a water bottle, so you can slot them into regular bottle cages and cupholders. Want to enjoy sweet music while sipping beer in your all-in-one beach chair?  Pop this into one of the cupholders and you’re good.  [...]

  • Donky Bike Maximizes Cargo Space

    Donky Bike Maximizes Cargo Space

    Sometimes, you need to haul more than a couple bags of grocery on your bicycle’s handlebar crate.  And when you those times come, there’s no choice — you have to take multiple trips.  That might change with the Donky, a bicycle created specifically for cargo-carrying duties. Instead of a simple basket hanging across the handlebar or a platform on the rear for hauling items, the bike features two cargo spaces — one in front and another in the rear.    You [...]

    2×2 Cycles Bicycle Rack Puts Your Mountain Bike On Your Ducati

    Traveling with a bicycle usually means you need to bring a car or a truck with bike carriers onboard. That means hitting the road on your Ducati Streetfighter 848 is out of the question.  Well, it used to be anyway until the Motorcycle Bicycle Rack came along. Made by 2×2 Cycles, it’s a bike rack designed to mount on a motorcycle, allowing you to carry your favorite two-wheeled vehicle on the back of your other favorite two-wheeled vehicle.   Mounting is [...]

    PostPump 2.0 Hides A Floor Pump In Bike Seat Post

    Strapping one of those handheld pumps on your bike is always a smart thing.  Problem is remembering every time to carry it on the next bike trip, so you almost always either end up leaving it in the garage or losing it by virtue of being a mess.  The PostPump 2.0 seeks to solve that problem, providing you with a tire pump that’s built into your bike, so you neither leave it at home nor lose it again. Made by [...]

    ICEdot Helmet Sensor Sends An SOS On Your Behalf During An Accident

    Accidents while doing extreme sports are bad enough.  Having an accident with no one else around to even call for help is just plain horrible — you can, literally, end up immobile while lying on a cliff till eternity (or the zombie apocalypse, whichever comes first). That might change soon with the ICEdot, a sensor that can detect accidents and help you call for help. Designed to attach to helmets, it’s a tiny yellow dot that can detect impact and [...]

    Monkey Light Adds Colorful Illumination To Your Bicycle

    Turning your favorite green ride into a light show spectacle with these bicycle lights might be tacky.  But being the guy who walks around wearing Starfleet shirts and Bobba Fett helmets, though, we both know you’re the kind of guy who loves being the nerdy spectacle.  So might as well give in and install this Monkey Light 8-Bit Wheel Light in your bicycle. Unlike most wheel-installed LED units, this doesn’t just give you a simple lighting system for nighttime illumination.  [...]

    World’s Loudest Bike Horn

    Tired of people in their cars honking their loud horns while you pedal leisurely on the way to work?  Unless you’re hiding superpowers that let you mute everything within a 5 mile radius, we doubt you can make them stop.  You can, however, sound off right back if you’re riding the Hornster, which comes equipped with the loudest bike horn in the world. Part publicity stunt (from the Environmental Transport Association) and part amusing novelty, this bicycle comes with a [...]
