    One thread to rule them all under the topic of interesting innovations, creativity at work, and innovations. Per the LED bike lane light etc. These things are all new, alien, and un-tested. I find that very interesting and I think that this forum of people is more knowledgeable than most when riding in this city specifically, so.. would it work?

    it might work....but your wheel and probly your pants, and most likely your chain, cog, spokes, and god knows what else would be covered in colored chalk for days/weeks/months...this wont hurt a bit...

    sent to me by my father, this one is unarguably sweet. build it on a very standard 700 and everyone everywhere has a very nice front light and a very nice rear light.

    commentNot thrilled about the use of chalk.
    Scale it up to carry and spread sand and you'd have some intriguing winter cycling benefits. The cyclist would benefit from a little extra rear-wheel traction as would anyone else using the route, i.e. other cyclists and pedestrians.

    it looks more to me like that greenwheel thing is a really awesome electric assist. all you need is the hub laced to whatever rim you want, and a wireless throttle control.

    i'm sure it's considerably more expensive than a generator hub, which has been available for a long time and powers front/rear lights quite sufficiently.

    the chalk is, uh. pretty, at least. i like how one of the girls in the picture is wearing her helmet. clipped to her bag...

    we had a guy come into the shop once who is determined to grease his chain solely with graphite. he didn't get that, while it may lubricate some things well, it does not lubricate bikes that ride in all kinds of weather with any particular degree of success.

    but theres nothing on the market for a 2009 application of these things. there are tons of generator hubs, mike down the street used to have one. just like there are tons of three speed hubs. but its the difference between a million rusty sturmey archers and a Soma iggy 3-speed set. the money to be made is in the widescale creative and simple application of all these things AND some creativity. i think we all know that bikes in fives years are going to look and be very different and very weird by todays standards. i think it will be interesting to follow the money.enjoy two cosmetics

  1.  
    what if you could use that green wheel thing as like a battery charger for your phone or computer, like you go out, ride, store energy, then take your wheel off at night and charge your phone while you sleep! less energy consumption and more biking to be had! anyone? anyone?I summoned it with my moustache...
  2.  
    there was some dood who would hook up his trainer or exercise bicycle to a generator and powered his tv/computer
    in my limited knowledge of elec engineering i assume it's harder to store energy vs directly outputting it from a source, say a trainer.
    feel free to correct me if im wrong.

    Some super awkward dude came in to Cambridge bikes and asked us to build that wheel. The hub seriously weighed like 8 pounds. The design definitely needs a lot of fine tuning before anyone can make a big deal of it.The kid's gotta learn that the game never lets up.

    Where are the arguments and the fights that used to break out on this piece of s***.

    Stop talking about bicycle innovations also, because we all know it's all been done. You are all "possengers".Jockin' Mike D. to my dismay!

    Protip: Not to get too tricky but a target="0" (drop it right in after the address linked to!) is always nice.

    As for the chalk, seems like some simple fun and is definitely a novelty. Can't see any real purpose to it other than that and mucking up your drivetrain though.

    Not to start a coding debate, but opening a new window/tab is also #9 on Jakob Nielsen's Top 10 Mistakes in Web design. Let the user decide how they want to open the page.We are the small axe.

    ^ I've seen it and while I agree it's not pretty it is usable, works in any browser and degrades nicely. My point is still why take away a user choice to open in a new window or not.

    Back on topic, the chalk lines seem fun and all but I doubt they would hold up in New England weather. It does make you want to get some spray paint and make your own bike lanes though.We are the small axe.
