    Getting Great Helmet Graphics Onto A Globe (Part I)

    September 16, 2014 If you look closely at helmets with graphics, you’ll notice that most helmet makers choose designs that are simple, often even childish, and cover only a small portion of the helmet. But over the years (7, to be exact) that Nutcase has been designing helmets, we’ve gone deeper and deeper into the…

    Bike Locks You Can Love

    September 10, 2014 I enjoy everything about bicycle commuting – except the need to carry a clunky bike lock. Standard U-bar models weigh about five pounds and hog up room in your backpack, or rattle annoyingly on your bike rack. Fortunately, clever designers are coming to the rescue with some entirely new concepts: The Yerka…

Today – well, school has started around the U.S., and so we’re just looking for some Friday fun, no matter how few or many wheels it involves. And we found it, at the Skate Crate Kickstarter page.

    Coming Combo:Electric Scooter, Moto Helmet

    September 4, 2014 We just love two-wheeled vehicles. If they are human-powered, so much the better, but if they aren’t, the move toward powering them electrically is very, very welcome. And growing – Navigant Research says the markets for both e-motorcycles and e-scooters are set to surge soon as component prices drop and gas prices…
