Riding A Bicycle With Lights On Its Wheels Is Basically Tron

Video: Bicycles with lights ringing their back wheels and expert visual editing basically turns regular mountain biking into light cycles on The Grid in Tron. It’s already a cool effect in real time because the lights start spiralling with the wheels, but reaches another level of awesomeness with some editing in post-production because the frames get stitched up to look as if the light were leaving colourful trails in nature. I wish this actually happened in real life.

These Are Some Cool Arse Parkour Bike Tricks

Video: Why cycle regularly when you can cycle while running sideways on a wall, or move forward while handstanding on the handlebars in the opposite direction? Heck, Tim Knoll, the cyclist in the video, is so good at busting bike tricks that don’t involve the act of pedalling that he can even launch off the bike directly onto a skateboard. Here’s his collection of wild parkour bike tricks as he tours through Barcelona.

This Guy Does Impossible Things On A Mountain Bike

Video: Danny MacAskill does things on a mountain bike that even physicists, who know more about the laws of the universe than anyone, would probably assume is impossible. The Scottish country side serves as the gorgeous backdrop for this video of Danny just being amazing on two wheels. But you probably won’t even notice the scenery.

This Was The Bicycle Of The Future In 1946

This bicycle, designed by Benjamin Bowden, was included in the “Britain Can Make It Better” exhibition of 1946. Known simply as the Classic (and later the Spacelander), Bowden’s initial design for the bicycle included a motor that gave riders a little extra oomph while travelling uphill.

Pedalling This Exercise Bike Gives Your Dog A Workout Too

You can probably think of countless reasons why you don’t want to take your dog for a walk. It’s too cold, you’re tired, your arch nemesis lives around the corner — the list goes on and on. But with this double-duty exercise bike and treadmill, you can give your pup a good run without ever stepping outside.

This Bullet-Shaped Bike Just Set A Human-Powered Speed Record

There’s no room for your briefcase so it’s hard to use for your daily commute, but just think of how fast you’d ride to work on the Aerovelo Eta, which just set a new record for the World’s Fastest Human-Powered vehicle by reaching 145km/hour. That’s faster than you’re legally allowed to drive on most highways.

Truly Savage Thief Chops Down Tree To Steal A Bike

Video: This dude is crazy and awful and screwed up but also bold and daring and a freaking total savage. Armed with a handsaw and a sociopathic personality, he literally chopped down a tree in order to steal a bike. A tree no longer exists because this guy saw a bike locked up to it and thought it’d be easy money to get. Some poor sap is now without their bike because this mad man thought sawing through a tree trunk was easier than breaking a bike lock.

Fun Video Shows Bikers Popping Up Out Of Nowhere And Doing Tricks In The Field

Video: Bikers Martin Söderström and Dawid Godziek seriously just pop up out of nowhere in this video as they bust crazy tricks out in the field. The expert editing hides their jumps so it looks like they’re almost superhuman because they’re getting so much air.

Pro Mountain Biker Thrashes A Cheap Supermarket Bike On A Brutal Trail

Video: Just because this Huffy Carnage is sold by Walmart as a mountain bike doesn’t necessarily mean it can handle a legit downhill mountain run, as Phil Kmetz discovered after spending $US180 ($241) on one. Halfway through his ride the bike’s brake pads were almost completely gone, and after the first jump its handlebars broke and bent.

This Exploding Bike Alarm Might Actually Be Effective

About ten minutes after the very first car alarm went off, the tech went from being a genuine theft deterrent to an annoyance that everyone just ignores. The makers of the Bike Mine have a better idea, at least when it comes to getting people to notice when a bike or motorcycle is being stolen: old-fashioned explosives.
