    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 [...]

    BikeBoards Are Bicycle Skis For Gliding In The Snow

    Sure, you can try riding a fat bike on thick snow to get your cold weather bicycling fix. For all intents and purposes, though, we have a feeling using a BikeBoard with your bike is going to make for a lot less hard work on your part. A ski that attaches to your bike’s front tire, it lets the front of your bike glide through the snow. Since the skis out front help compact the snow, there’s also less resistance [...]

    Lock8 Smart Bike Lock Offers GPS Tracking And More

    Putting a strong lock on a door is good.  What’s even better is putting a strong lock and a security system that will make a loud boisterous sound any time an unauthorized entry happens.  We guess the same holds true for any locks.  Yep, even bike locks, as evidenced by the Lock8. Sure, U-locks, cable locks and your foldylock can do the job of securing a bicycle just fine.  Until a determined burglar with superpowers comes along, destroys the lock in [...]

    Sure, you can fill up your usual water bottle with beer so you can hit the road riding atop your CB4 Hunting Bike with some refreshing suds on tap.  If you have a bigger appetite for yeast-fermented malt than would fit inside a 1-liter travel bottle, however, the Growler Cage might prove a more appropriate accessory.

  • Foldylock Folding Bike Lock Is A Smart And Practical Design

    Foldylock Folding Bike Lock Is A Smart And Practical Design

    Both those rigid U-locks and flexible cable locks should be functional enough for keeping a bicycle tethered to your favorite sturdy post.  If you prefer something that can fold up into a compact bundle, however, the Foldylock might very well become your favorite bike lock yet. Instead of a single-length of steel like a U-Lock, the contraption uses six different metal links that are attached with pivoting rivets on each end, forming a contiguous six-sided lock that can change in [...]

    What If Wall-E And A Tapeworm Had A Child?

    Don’t get me wrong, flexi flash flashlight looks pretty functional but I can’t help think this is what it would have looked like if Wall-E had ended up with a tapeworm instead of EVE. Now that we have that thought out of the way, lets get to the nitty gritty of this cool flashlight. Made with bendy silicone, think of it as a wristband with LEDs installed on one end.  Instead of being worn on your arm, you can wrap [...]

    Pannier Skaterack Lets You Throw A Skateboard Onto Your Bike

    You want to take your shiny new fixie for a spin.  But you also want to hit the skate park and practice your grinds before you head home.  Normally, that’s not a problem with your SSCY Bandolier Bag and its board-holding powers, but you don’t really want to carry an entire bag — just a board.  If you had the Fairdale Pannier Skaterack on your bike, that won’t be a cause for concern. Just like regular panniers, this one attaches [...]

    Hiplok, A Bike Lock That Doubles As A Fashionable Belt

    Everyday, I see bicycle riders pedaling away with a chain lock tied around their body.  And it looks horrible, apart from likely being dangerous (the chain can hook onto something during an accident, which can make its repercussions worse).   The Hiplok does away with the horrible part, having been intentionally designed to be worn like a belt when not holding your bike against a post. A chain lock at heart, the accessory is made with heavy duty steel chain links, [...]

    Seasucker, A Bike Rack That Sucks

    Installing  bike racks on a car requires a fair amount of work.  When you put one in, you’d likely just keep it on to avoid having to do all that laborious activity a second time.  The Seasucker Autmotive simplifies setting up a mounting facility for your ride, using temporary fittings that stick to surfaces using a sucking motion. They’re not suction cups, though — the company is very careful to point that out.  Instead, these are vacuum cups, which attach [...]

    LiveRider Equips Your Bike With An Onboard Computer

    Cars have long deserved computers.  Ever since David Hasselholf rolled with KITT in the Knight Rider, we all knew it made perfect sense.  Bicycles, on the other hand, are manually-operated and are largely Luddite possessions.  Why the hell would you install a computer in one? The LiveRider kit is a hardware/software combo that, when paired with an iPhone or an iPod Touch, lets you equip your pedal-pusher with an onboard computer.  While it won’t talk like Kitt does, it will [...]
