    Bike Bells – Bell Yours!

    We’re not about to make any regular New Year’s resolutions about diet, exercise, or being less wild at Nutcase HQ. We are ready to send out a little hopeful wish, however, and it’s all about belling the bike. In Copenhagen, where transportation biking is on a par with public transportation and pedestrianism, getting ‘belled’ while…

    Winter Biking (With Kids) – #KeepRiding

    Keeping tiny faces and heads warm during winter bike riding is a skill I have practiced over the past three (going on four) winters. Living in Philadelphia with our so glorious seasonal weather, we get to change up how we bike four times a year. Usually by the time I get the kids used to…

    Happy Holidays
    from the Nutcases

    It’s that time of year again – whatever work hasn’t gotten done, just won’t – not for a day or two, at least. Instead it’s time for a short reprieve from the cares and concerns of the work-a-day world. A little time with the family, a little time relaxing, a little time to let our…

    How A Helmet Is The Best Gift

    Many people buy their helmet – whether a bicycle helmet, a moto helmet, or a snow or skate helmet – at the same moment they are purchasing other outdoor gear. There’s a reflective, ‘oh yeah, a helmet’ thought, and then we are led to the wall where the helmets are displayed. That’s not how it…

    Nutcase Unframed Announces Three Winning Artists!

    The grand outpouring of responses to our Nutcase Unframed 2015 helmet design contest is both terribly wonderful as well as wonderfully terrible. To narrow from a field of 85 artists’ entries to seven was difficult, yes – yet to go from seven entries to just one winning artist was practically impossible. Actually, it was impossible,…

    #KeepRiding Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, Now!

    There’s an inevitable slowdown in riding and bike commuting when Winter’s temperature dips combine with precipitation to make for miserable conditions. Sleet, snow, fog, wind, light slanty rain, heavy downpours – they can all make biking feel like not as much fun. It doesn’t have to be like that. We can all #keepriding if we want to,…

    Countdown – Seven Nutcase Unframed Finalists Revealed

    We’re flabbergasted by the variety as well as happily bamboozled by the artistic response to our 2015 Unframed contest. Inside the Nutcase HQ hive, our judging panel has looked and talked…and talked and looked…shuffled and re-shuffled the 85 entries we’ve stuck up on our whiteboard, and then looked and talked and talked and looked again.…
