From the Ash

From the Ash

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.

Solar-powered eBike

Solar-powered eBike

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.

Take a ride along the skinniest line possible with mountain biker “Dangerous Dave” Herr. Watch as he negotiates wooden paths, some of which are roughly the width of his forks in this award-winning clip in the Pinkbike and “GoPro of the World” best line contest.

Making an All-wood Bike

Making an All-wood Bike

After building himself an F1 car out of soda cans, builder The Q decided to make himself another cool, but highly-impractical vehicle. This time, he spent over 200 hours building a bicycle entirely out of wood and glue – including the frame, wheels, chain, seat and pedals.

Annobike A1 eBike

Annobike A1 eBike

The A1 electric bike is designed for versatility. With its low frame, air suspension, and fat, puncture-resistant tires, it can ride just as easily on city streets and bumpy trails.

Social Distance Bike

Social Distance Bike

In the interest of keeping his distance from others, builder Colin Furze decided that he was still too close to other people while riding his bicycle, so he built a stainless steel two-wheeler dubbed the “Highcycle” that rides more than six feet off of the ground. We’re impressed he was able to get onto this thing.

Roomba Bicycle

Roomba Bicycle

William Osman had a bunch of robot vacuum cleaners left over from a previous project, so he asked his viewers what to do with them. After trying a bunch of bad ideas, he decided to go his own way and build a bike with Roombas for wheels. It doesn’t go well.

Danny MacAskill’s Gymnasium

Trials bike guru and Red Bull athlete Danny MacAskill dropped by the local gym to get in a workout. But you won’t find him on the elliptical or doing squats. Nope, Danny gets in all of his reps behind the wheel of his skillfully-balanced bicycle. Be sure to stick around for the bloopers at the end.

Walking Bicycle 2.0

Walking Bicycle 2.0

Taking obvious inspiration from artist Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests and CARV’s earlier efforts, maker The Q fabricated himself a crazy bicycle which has no rear wheel, and instead can walk across the ground. This design appears much smoother than the one we previously saw, but by no means the fastest way to ride a bicycle.

A Bicycle Built for Shoes

A Bicycle Built for Shoes

The Q built one of the most insane custom bicycles we’ve ever seen. He replaced the standard wheels of his wide-tire bike with special rims that wear six shoes each instead of tires. It doesn’t look like the smoothest ride ever, but the shoe rubber does provide decent traction.

Boombox Tricycle

Boombox Tricycle

Maker Laura Kampf teamed up with her friend Patrick, whose audio expertise helped her build an earthshaking sound system for the back of her 3-wheeler. The battery-powered audio system has six full-range speakers and a giant subwoofer. She should have named it “Boomtrike” though.
