A Spokeless Bicycle

Gear  |  Bike
Nice mechanical engineering class at Yale has built a bicycle with a spokeless back wheel. One of them, redditor zhoalander has posted pictures and wrote:
As you've probably noticed, only the back wheel is spokeless. This was done for several reasons: Manufacturing the rear wheel/rim was very expensive, so we only had one machined to see if it would work. We knew that if we could get it working for the rear wheel, it would definitely work for the front. But in the end, we ran out of time (class was only one semester long).

Gregory deGouveia has bulit a bike with awesome car wheels!
Said Degouveia, "The Kitten took me about a week for the frame and wheels. The headlights and brakes took about another week. The Kitten was built because the wheels were free. It's excessive and inefficient — it's sort of the anti-bike."

Simply for holding onto while you wait for the light to change. It's located on a little Copenhagen traffic island where cyclists wait the light. A high railing to grasp with your hand and a foot railing for putting your foot up. The foot rest reads: "Hi, cyclist! Rest your foot here... and thank you for cycling in the city." Cool, a good idea!

The Copenhagen Wheel

Array
Gear  |  Bike


MIT researchers will debut the Copenhagen Wheel - a revolutionary new bicycle wheel that not only boosts power, but can keep track of friends, fitness, smog and traffic. The Wheel can store energy every time the rider puts on the brakes, and then give that power back to provide a boost when riding uphill or to add a burst of speed in traffic. It also maps pollution levels, traffic congestion, and road conditions in real-time.
SENSE and SUSTAINABILITY
Controlled through your smart phone, the Copenhagen Wheel becomes a natural extension of your everyday life. You can use your phone to unlock and lock your bike, change gears and select how much the motor assists you. As you cycle, the wheels sensing unit is also capturing your effort level and information about your surroundings, including road conditions, carbon monoxide, NOx, noise, ambient temperature and relative humidity. Access this data through your phone or the web and use it to plan healthier bike routes, to achieve your exercise goals or to meet up with friends on the go. You can also share your data with friends, or with your city - anonymously if you wish thereby contributing to a fine-grained database of environmental information from which we can all benefit.

Pivot Sleeve Shirt is designed for cyclist

Array
Gear  |  Bike
The Outlier Pivot Sleeve Shirt($120) is made for the cyclist who goes to work by cycle.
"The basic challenge was straightforward, when you lean forward on a bike a buttondown shirt stresses. It pulls uncomfortably taut across the shoulders. The sleeves pull up exposing your wrists to the cold, and the tails pull out of your pants, leaving you either untucked or with a blooming blouse of a shirt. Our solution is the patent-pending Pivot Sleeve, a completely reconstructed buttondown that retains the traditional look and feel of a dress shirt while working equally well both on and off the a bicycle."
