Buy-Cycle Back to Prosperity

Filmmaker and anti-helmet Fashionista extraordinaire, Mikael Colville-Andersen, dug up this Depression-era cartoon, encouraging people to buy, buy, buy, as a way of stimulating the American economy with more “circulating dollars.” That cartoon is truer now than it was when it was originally published. The irony is that just before the Great Depression, only about half […]

Reality Sucks – Buy an Electric Bike

Fabian’s Bike Trailer Train

Fabian previously sent in some photos of his eye-catching, baby blue bike trailer. Now he’s added on two more trailers just in case you weren’t watching him go down the road already.

Harry’s Recovery Child Trailer Turned Cargo Part 2

About a year ago, we posted up a great example of converting a bike child trailer into a bike cargo trailer. Basically, the trailer was stripped down to its bare essentials and rebuilt for carrying gear and goods. Harry was kind enough to pass along these photos of the finished product all loaded up for […]

Jeff’s Air Stream Bike Trailer Camper

A few months ago, this email came through our in box to help a small bike trailer Kickstarter project. We didn’t have a chance to ever post the project before it was cancelled. Never-the-less, it was an interesting looking project worthy of a ike Trailer Blog post. Below is Jeff’s camper bike trailer. This bike […]

‘Stop pedaling… start driving’

General Motors has a new program aimed at college students, hoping to inspire them to buy GM cars with a “college discount.” The “Reality Sucks” advertisement has all the subtly of a commercial for Axe Body Spray — and apparently is aimed at the same insecure demographic. Just in case the ad is too subtle, […]
