LEGO builder SleepyCow came up with this awesome design for a miniature bicycle, complete with working steering, spinning pedals, a drive chain, a kickstand, and pneumatic front and rear disc brakes. The design uses 999 authentic LEGO bricks and is currently up for consideration on LEGO Ideas for a production run.
Most people who want a portable gaming PC buy a high-end laptop. Russian builder Yolenzo created a gaming rig on a bicycle. The Exo Giga Bike packs an AORUS Z590I Ultra mobo, an Intel Core i5-11600K CPU, an Nvidia RTX 3070 GPU, a 2TB SSD, and 32 GB of RAM. They’re gonna need a really long power cord and HDMI cable.
The Q has built more than their share of unusual bicycles over the years. But unlike their earlier approach to making wheel spokes disappear, this time they actually built a working hubless bike. The trick is that it redirects the chain to the outer edge of the wheel instead of its center.
The wider the tires on your bike, the more traction you’ll get on loose terrain like sand, mud, or gravel. But there are fat-tire bikes, and then there’s BigWR’s Bigfoot bike, which he rigged with the wheels and tires from an off-road truck. We’re guessing it requires quite a bit of leg strength to keep those wheels turning.
Topeak’s versatile multi-tool is like a Swiss Army knife for bicyclists. It includes 25 useful functions, including a variety of wrenches, hex keys, and screwdrivers, as well as specialized tools for spokes, valves, tires, and chains. It also packs a knife and a bottle opener.
A penny-farthing is one of those old-timey bicycles with the giant wheel in front and a tiny one in the back. We see them on the streets once in a while and always wonder how tricky they must be to ride. Serial learner Mike Boyd is here to answer that question, with a little help from the guys at the UK branch of Unicycle.com.
We’ve seen a bicycle that can walk, and another that can ride on ice, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen a bike that can jump. Scotty and Matty Cranmer of Can’t Slow Down show off their crazy creation, which has a pair of curved, spring-loaded pogo sticks in place of wheels.
This unusual bicycle can expand to carry up to 180 kg (about 396 lb) of cargo at its center. Its rear wheel and drive chain fold down and out to provide extra space as needed. It’s also available with a pedal-assist electric motor to give you added momentum when carrying heavy loads.
We’ve seen how chains are made and learned about of the different kinds of chain. In this short video, The Q shows an unconventional use for chain by building a bicycle entirely from the stuff. The main trick is to weld the chain links together to form a stiff structure for the frame. We’re not sure we’d trust it off-road though.
When you say the words “bicycle” and “shifter” together you’re probably talking about gearing. But Colin Furze’s latest whacked-out bicycle shifts in a whole different way. Its frame is made out of hydraulic rams, which can be adjusted in length so the bicycle can stretch, shrink, and grow while riding it.
These wooden cabinets from Riders Gonna Ride are are perfect for keeping your bike gear neat and organized. They come with pegs and shelves for storing helmets, shoes, outfits, and other accessories and come in five versions for varied storage needs. They also make a minimal wall-mounted hanging unit.
WorksByaHurst asks his followers to send in random items for him to build things from. When he received a box full of old bicycle parts, the idea that struck him was to turn the chains into the tentacles and body of an octopus. While he was working on it, all we could think of was those creepy Sentinels from The Matrix.
This bike accessory combines two useful functions – a mount for viewing maps and information on your phone, along with a storage bag for your wallet, keys, bike tools, or other small accessories. It comes in both a top-tube mount and handlebar version. It’s waterproof and has a built-in sunshade for your phone screen.
The XION electric bike has a cyberpunk style and attitude. It rides on fat tires, has a full suspension, and an elongated 2-person seat. Its frame and seat colors can be customized, as well as an optional laser-cut center panel with LED lighting. Its mid-drive motor can achieve speeds up to 50 mph in Race mode.
Montague’s electric bike might just be the best of all worlds. It has a full-size frame that folds in half, along with performance components like a Shimano STEPS E6100 motor and a Deore drivetrain, making up to 44 lb-ft. of torque. It rides on standard 700c wheels and has a front suspension fork for bumpy roads and hydraulic disc brakes.
These durable and adjustable straps are a great add-on for any bicycle. They hold items firmly to your bike’s frame and can be used to carry a variety of objects like pumps, spare innertubes, tool bags, or even your lunch. They come in three lengths: 25cm, 45cm, and 65cm.
We already know that using saw blades as wheels can provide traction on ice. With this in mind, The Q replaced the wheels on his bicycle with gigantic circular saw blades, then took it for a little spin on a frozen lake. We know it looks cool, but it seems like this could end very badly.
Balancing your bicycle on one wheel is tricky enough, but removing the front tire in the middle of popping a wheelie is some next-level stuff. Freestyle rider Jake 100 proves he’s totally up to the challenge in this crazy stunt video. Check out more one-wheeled wheelie goodness here.
Electric bikes can be great, but their limited range gets in the way of longer rides. The Rocket eBike promises rides up to 100 miles thanks to a big battery pack, efficient motor, and regenerative braking. The bike folds up small so you can toss it in your back seat, has a full suspension, and hits a max speed of 28 mph.
Gymnast and freestyle bike rider Viola Brand shows off her insane balancing skills, as she uses her bicycle in ways never designed by its manufacturer and dances around the ballroom standing on the handlebars, seat, and pedals of her 2-wheeler. Can’t get enough? Check out more of Viola’s bike tricks.
Developed by a physical therapist and bike enthusiast, these unique handlebar grips are designed to improve ergonomics and comfort by rotating your hands into a more natural position when riding. They also help to reduce vibrations. Available in composite or carbon fiber materials.
Handmade in Germany, these racks are great for getting bicycles up off the ground. Each one features a sturdy aluminum body with a felt-lined “V” groove that gives your bike a safe resting place. An interior cubby has a wooden shelf that’s great for storing small accessories. Available in black or white with a variety of wood finishes.
Back in 2018, director Ryan Gibb and MTB rider Nico Vink traveled to New Mexico’s Philmont Scout Ranch, where they captured this amazingly fiery footage. The film was created entirely in a controlled setting on private property on an already burnt piece of land. Learn more about the project from Teton Gravity Research.
Electric bicycles are a fast and fun way to get around. However, they have limited range due to their small battery packs. Peter Sripol wanted to see if he could build an eBike that never needs recharging as long as the sun is shining. The downside? The trailer of solar panels he has to drag along. Build starts at 2:20.
Electric bikes are a genius solution for eco-friendly transportation. The fun, flexible, user-friendly Tern HSD e-bike is designed to get you places (like outside for a change), carry passengers, and haul cargo up to 375 lbs. Shorter than standard bikes, the mighty, mini HSD folds or flips up to easily stow between pleasure cruises.
Superstrata uses an advanced 3D-printing process to build a bike customized to each rider’s weight, arm and leg lengths, riding positions, and preferred stiffness levels. Its thermoplastic carbon fiber frame us made without joints for maximum strength. Two versions will be made: the pedal-powered Terra, and the Ion, an e-bicycle.
