Future, Past & Present - Gerard Trueba, Cesar Cañas & Toni Bou on

I have got to try this out. I don't know what looks like more fun, a simple trials bicycle or that siq trials motorcycle! Is it just me or are kids these days doing some extraordinary things.

What does four hooves and two horns say to the face?


Mountain Biker, Evan van der Spuy of Team Jeep South Africa got taken out by a RED HARTEBEES at a mountain bike race at Albert Falls Dam. Check out this crazy footage which was taken by team mate Travis Walker on his GoPro Camera. Im sure everyone that watches this video says "OH SHIT" at the exact same moment! I cant believe he walked away from that one, it looks like his neck folded in half. Guess thats why you don't ride on your period. It attracts wild animals.

Insane stuntz

These dudes have one hell of a death wish. I am not at all into this type of "riding" but you have to respect the skill that some of these dudes have, not counting the giant pair of brass balls.

A Deuce Powered Trike.

I can say that I have pushed the limits while riding a motorcycle from time to time, to make it home a little sooner to take care of some business, if you know what I mean... Butt, leave it to the Japanese to alleviate this problem once and for all. Toto the toilet manufacturer just created a Poo Powered three wheeled motorcycle and are touring the country showing it off. The video below gives a little more detail, and shows a man that looks like the Japanese Pee Wee Herman riding it down the street.

Look ma' no hands!

I think my favorite was lazer eyes.

The only hybrid bike you would ever catch me on.

What beauties! Derringer Cycles, named after the pocket-size old pistol, is a cross between a 1920′s board track motorcycle and a bike. It can pedaled like a bike or ridden like a motorcycle, but gets up to 150 m.p.g! Created and designed by Adrian Van Anz, he said that its the missing link between his old Schwinn and his Ducati. It requires no motorcycle license or insurance, but unlike the scooter you are currently riding, comes with unlimited style points. These Derringer bikes are hand made with a huge choice of 250 colors, all with hand-riveted leather Brooks seat. They sell for $3500 and take a month to build.

If you haven't had the chance to check out Pedalr, you really should. It's an online community, similar to Craigslist, specifically for cyclists where enthusiests, collectors and even shops sell product. Check out more here!

I listed a couple of wheel sets up there to try it out, if they sell Pedalr get 5% of the sale. Not too bad, cheaper than eBay.

Visit Espada, check out some unique bikes, grab a beer

Espada, home of the Two Wheel Tuesday ride. This is the meet up spot for the 8 PM ride year round, as well as the meeting/parking spot for the group of motorcycle and scooter riders that share our enthusiasm for everything dual wheeled. Steve is the main fixture behind the bar, I mean counter at this unique NoDa shop. It is a shared space with a jeweler and an art gallery giving you something to do while you wait if you choose to do so. Stop by and give these friendly folks a holler.
From Bianchi to BMW and to Specialized, they are designing something futuristic for the bicycle world. I'm not sure whether they're gonna produce these robotic bikes massively but for the mean time I'll stick to vintage. But we're not all the same right? You decide. By the way, below are some of the futuristic bicycle designs for your viewing pleasure.
