Mini Monkey Light is much cooler than a card in your bike spokes

Mini Monkey Light is much cooler than a card in your bike spokes

Back when I was a kid, the only way to make your bike cooler was to put a bent card of some sort in the spokes so you could sound like a motorcycle. The Mini Monkey Light would have absolutely blown my 10-year-old mind back in the day had it been around.

Blink Bike Helmet gives cyclists blinkers on their head

I happen to live off a larger highway that has wide shoulders on each side and is a straight shot for miles and miles. That means that during the warm summer months on any given night you will find huge packs of bicyclists shooting up and down the highway on the shoulders having fun. The problem is that early in their biking season it gets dark pretty early and since the road has no lights anywhere those folks can be hard to see.

In many big cities around the world, one of the more common forms of travel for people that live too far to walk but don’t want to take public transportation is a bicycle. The catch is that once you get to your location there are only so many places that you can put your bike while you go inside to work. You also have to worry that someone might steal your ride home too.

Michelin develops bicycle inner tubes that fix their own flats

The highway that runs near my house is covered with people riding bikes on the weekends. The local cyclists ride in packs with 20 or more bikes in one group at times and each weekend I see more than a few of those guys on the side of the road, tools in-hand, fixing a flat bike tire. I can only imagine standing on the shoulder of a heavily trafficked highway with a 70mph speed limit has to be a bit nerve racking.

ECODRIVE Bicycle Features Integrated Turn Signals, iPhone Dock

We've seen what an iPhone dock in a Harley-Davidson would look like, but while listening to music your music through the speakers may be one thing, the integration between bike and iDevice wasn't as complete as we would have liked. And that's why we have concepts, and why we love them. This design concept is from designer Juil Kim, and it's called the ECODRIVE.

BOND bike packs flamethrower, tank track & ejector seat [Video]

We wouldn't normally talk about insurance companies here on SlashGear, but ilovemybike must've known they'd be appealing to geeks when they put together their BOND bicycle prototype.  According to ETA it's intended to answer the three main criticisms of urban bikers, hence there's a flamethrower in the handlebars for cars that get too close, caterpillar tracks at the back for dealing with potholes, and an ejector seat for disposing of bike thieves.

VeloMini Electric Folding Bicycle Has Top Speed of 12mph, Costs More Than it Should

When it comes to electric-powered vehicles, we know that they're still at such a premium, that usually the price tag will follow suit. In the case of the VeloMini electric bicycle, that's certainly the case. Though, that's not saying that the little bike isn't worth taking a look at. We've seen bikes that can fold (and even fold around a lightpole), but this one's unique in that it's powered by electricity. And, considering the focus on doing something for the environment, that's certainly not a bad thing.
