Now this is some serious pedal power!  Lots of pix of bike powered machines.  Good stuff.  I wish is that they had a bit more in the way of how-to’s on the site but they state that they are willing to share designs with other non-profit orgs.

L-Box Carrier

Never seen these before, and I don’t understand why they aren’t everywhere, other than the cost. One of the stories quoted a cost (my price translation from english pounds to us dollars may be off) of around $2,000.00 for a kid carrier version. None the less, these are wonderful! I’m gonna have to build one or more along these lines for use around here.

Bamboo Bike at Burningman

Wish there was more on this neat looking bike but that it. The person who took the picture doesn’t seem to want to share their work as there is no option to download ANY size copy of this.

The amazing part of this particular bike is that wheel struts and all seem to be bamboo. Wonderful work. Fair photography. Non-Burningman attitude toward sharing on the part of the uploader.

Update: Went to the page source code and found the image link and stole a copy of the damn thing. Cropped it down to the part I was interested in and that’s what’s left above.  The link will take you to the full thing on flicker.  If the owner bitches I will take it down but this is such wonderful work I want my own archival copy for future reference.
