Bob’s Adams Trail-A-Bike Re-Purpose & “Tidy Cat” Panniers

The polls are officially closed — Our “most creative trailer build” award is going out early this week! Bob’s trailer knocks the concept of “re-purposing” out of the park: I bought a used Adams Trail-A-Bike off Craigslist for $50. Cut off the handlebars. Removed the drive train. Replaced the wheel with a stronger BMX wheel. […]

I’ll be adding some pannier racks […]

1979’s ‘Americathon’ Depicted a Bike-Friendly America

I’ve never seen this movie, but 1979’s Americathon depicted a 1998 “future” America where the USA has run out of oil, and Americans have begun riding bicycles for transportation. Yet it’s apparently not a future that the country chose by redesigning and tweaking infrastructure, and consciously changing transportation and energy policies. It seems as though […]
