Building a Fan-Powered Tandem Bike

Building a Fan-Powered Tandem Bike

Freestyle mountain bike rider Sam Pilgrim got his hands on a beat-up side-by-side tandem bicycle and thought it could use an upgrade. So he and his pal Louie outfitted it with a powerful 80cc paramotor fan. The resulting vehicle is insanely loud and squirrely as hell. We’re impressed they didn’t roll it.

It rolls on all-terrain tires and has badass body cladding and fog lights. Just 1499 will be produced.

Formula 1 One Wheel Skateboard

Formula 1 One Wheel Skateboard

The Q has a love for Formula 1 racing. But we’re guessing from his past projects that he can’t afford to own a real F1 race car. He does however have a single F1 wheel and tire, so he got to work building a custom electric skateboard that rolls on it. It works much like the Onewheel, though it’s a bit trickier to straddle.

Hands-free Bicycle

Hands-free Bicycle

This bike without handlebars is neither a bicycle nor a unicycle. It should officially be called a tricycle because it’s got two tiny skate wheels in front and a single large bike wheel in the back. Whatever you call it, BigWR’s custom ride sure is unique, and it balances surprisingly well.

Over the years, there have been numerous efforts to build bikes, motorcycles, and mopeds that can fold up for ease of transport. Bikes and Beards got their hands on a couple of folding electric two-wheelers to test out how easily they open, their weight capacity, speed, and range. That tiny Himo H1 is ridiculous.

Scott Speed vs. The Dragon

Scott Speed vs. The Dragon

If you’ve never experienced the Tail of the Dragon, you owe it to yourself to ride down to Tennessee or North Carolina and take a spin.

Each time The Q makes a new bicycle, we think he couldn’t possibly get outlandish. Well, he’s back with another unusual and creative bike build. This time, he arranged and welded together 147 nuts to create a functional bike frame. The structure is weight-bearing and could be used to screw in accessories if he wants to.

The Right Way to Use a Backup Camera

The Right Way to Use a Backup Camera

Backup cameras have been a great addition to modern cars, improving rear visibility and reducing fender benders. But they don’t all do a good job telling you how far you are from objects.
