Rocky Mounts TieRod Bike Rack

As most cyclists know, finding the right bike rack is not easy. Aside from having to look hard for the appropriate bike rack, you might need to buy additional accessories to make it fit your car or truck, snuggly.

RockyMounts have recently come out with their new TieRod bike rack with a promise that it fits 100% of factory crossbars. Taking the feedback most bikers have given over bike racks, they aimed to create a one-size-fits-all fork mount and they succeeded.

Bobby Noyes, founder and president of RockyMounts, thought that it would not be possible but surprisingly it was. The solution is having rubber coated stainless straps that can be adjusted to fit factory crossbars easily.

With flashy colours, RockyMounts makes the TieRod bike racks with a solid metal head to accommodate factory elliptical crossbars. Noyes proudly announced, “We hit the nail on the head. It is form…

Innovative Helmet Prevents Rotational Head Dangers

innovative helmet prevents rotational head dangers   Innovative Helmet Prevents Rotational Head Dangers

A cyclists knows that a head injury is a serious thing because it can be fatal. If not, major head trauma that may result to brain damage. To counter this, a new helmet was invented that mimics the human head and how it works to lessen any injury to the head. The new helmet aims to decrease the impact of rotational injuries that riders may encounter.

The Phillips Head Protection System evolutionized the design for the helmet by adding an anti-rotational synthetic membrane known as SuperSkin. It is scratch resistant and can stretch up to 8 times its size. The gel-like substance is layered over the helmet and is coated inside as well.

Yale Creates Real Life Spokeless Bike

yale creates real life spokeless bike 2   Yale Creates Real Life Spokeless Bike

Those Yale guys have managed to do what the bike manufacturers could not: invent an actual spokeless working bicycle that anyone can ride today. Those other concept bikes you may have seen that purportedly feature hubless wheels? They still remain as concepts the last time we looked.

This bicycle from Yale has no hub, no spokes, and practically nothing else in the middle of the rear wheel. The inventors explained that a similar front wheel was in the works, but they ran out of time during the semester. Designing the front wheel, they added, would even be easier, since they won’t have to factor in the drivetrain.

The Yale inventors posted this description of the drivetrain on Reddit:

It’s a single speed setup. We used two cranks and two bottom brackets in the front to gear up the ratio. It goes from (IIRC) 53 to a 13, which…
