Hero or Goober?

So there was this photo shoot that went down in the mean streets of NY

This footage is from a pervert who just couldn’t help but gawk and film. Fast Forward to 2:50. “Don’t worry about who the fuck I am. I’m right in the middle of your shit”. lol! Messengers are our friends :) …unless you’re a sick pervert.

Where’s the Hubby?

Looks like another attempt at reinventing the wheel. Although of the many concepts we’ve posted, this one is actually up and running. Not too certain of its practicality though. Nonetheless, kudos for trying.

“Lunartic is a Loughborough University Design and Technology final year project by Luke Douglas.

The aim was to use a hubless wheel to create a compact bicycle, with the benefits of a large wheel and belt drive.

Hubless wheels have appeared in bicycle concepts already, and were first invented by Sbarro. However, few concepts have made it to prototype and when only used for aesthetic purposes, the disadvantage of extra cost out weights the visual gain. Lunartic uses the hubless for a reason; to house the working parts, reducing the wheel base but not sacrificing conventional riding geometry.

Lunartic is supposed to be as compact as possible without folding or being awkward to ride, however there is the potential for the front wheel to fold up into the rear or for that space to be used for a laptop back, motor or dynamo.

This first prototype proves the unique theory behind the design but will require further development before being ready for mass manufacture.”

Krazy Lock Dude!

U-lock, check. Rope, check. Hacksaw, check. Yeah, you’ll need the hacksaw not to steal a bike, but to unlock your OWN bike, if you’re in or around Williamsburg, NY. According to the Brooklyn Paper: Looks like a local is fed up with bikes crowding up the side-walks…so he has decided to take street justice into his own hands by gluing locks shut with krazy glue. Injecting the super glue into these locks almost seems self-defeating for an anti-bike vigilante who wants the hoard of bikes to…well…go away!? Hang tight fellas and kick that glue outta his hand!

For the full story check it!

Replay!

Okay, this is on everyone’s blogroll, but hot damn I love the dialogue. Not to mention Humpty Dumpty’s great fall or should I say…fail.

The digression of blame… accusation to acceptance in a New York Minute….hilarious!
