Most people use U-Locks on their bikes. Oddly enough, helmets have holes in them but the holes are not designed to allow the U-Lock to fit through. That leaves you the hassle of carrying around your helmet. Well you are not alone with this problem. And an inventor named Blake Mills has come up with a solution.

Blake Mills has created his own Helmet Lock. It is a wire covered vinyl loop that is inserted through a hole on the helmet and is easily connected to the U-Lock. Blake said, “I actually found myself riding more often and enjoying myself more after solving this simple little problem. And now I want to solve it for you too!” Available for order at the website for $12.95. It’s more than just a piece of wire. Let us give credit to the inventor for taking time to tackle a problem with a…

Shimano American Corp. has signed a one-year deal with North American Handmade Bicycle Show Inc. for the title sponsorship of the world’s biggest custom bicycle show. The event’s official name for this year is quite a mouthful: the Shimano North American Handmade Bicycle Show.

Don Walker, the founder and director of the NAHBS, doesn’t mind the long names. He says that he is “thrilled” by the prospect of having Shimano as a title sponsor, and hopes that the deal with the world-leading bicycle components maker will continue on into the future.

Walker also mentions that Shimano has already been involved with NAHBS since 2006, and is delighted that the manufacturer has made a decision to “step up” their association with NAHBS into a full-fledged sponsorship.

Shimano Corp. has always played an active role in NAHBS for the past several years, but only as an exhibitor or low-level sponsor. It was…

A ton of exciting stuff has came from the Peugeot camp, first we showed you the re-introduction from Peugeot back in the cycling world, and now the design team has launched some images of the Peugeot B1K Concept Bike. Stated as a racing bike, the Peugeot B1K Concept Bicycle uses a chainless drivetrain, and carbon fiber materials. As of now, not much is known on production, and more than likely we can say this is eye candy.

LIVESTRONG and Nike have done it again, releasing yet another collaboration shoe, but this time is on the Nike Air Max+ Tailwind 2010 model. As you may know, Livestrong colors are black/yellow-white so the Nike Air Max+ Tailwind present features the same colors, LIVESTRONG on the tongue, and mesh on the tongue. Although not a cycling shoe, the LIVESTRONG x Nike Air Max+ Tailwind 2010 is a great running and cross trainer that in your spare time of riding can get some other good cardio in. Available now for $99.99.

This is one of those products that’s concept is really cool, but we don’t recommend you using it. The Performance Book Caddy is a mount you attach to your handlebars that allows you to place a book or even a laptop, and pretty much enjoy your ride while reading. You could hook the Performance Book Caddy to a stationary bike, or even use it with a trainer, but on the roads should be a no no. If you are feeling frisky and want to try it out, Performance Book Caddy is on sale for $15.

They could never hope to equal the elite riders of the sport, physically-wise, but Team Wiggle Tandem is hoping that the high-tech training and equipment available to them will be enough to earn them a long-distance cycling record or two.

David Harmon, the Eurosport cycling commentator, and wilderness guide Jez Hastings are embarking on a two-year mission to win a series of long distance cycling records, all in accordance with the Road Records Association rules.

Harmon says that even though they are both aware of the discrepancies between the past recordholders’ physical prowess and their own, still they are hoping that recent improvements in cycling technology will bring them a good chance of success in their record attempts.

Harmon and Hastings will ride the ‘Rocket 1′ tandem bike, designed and built by Terry Dolan. Using ‘Rocket 1′ will also let the pair assist in testing a set of developmental technology…
