Bike that lets you Low-Ride or High-Ride on the Go!

bike-1

Here’s an awesome design for a bike that will let the rider “low-ride” or “high-ride” while ridin’.  What a great concept, I can envision future bikes coming like this.

car-bus-bicycle

Here’s a simple picture of how much space that cars, bus, and bikes take in comparison to the number of people using it.  I have to say they should add skateboards, which should definitely come on top for the most eco-friendliest vehicle.

This isn’t the best bike rack hack I have ever saw but it’s still worthy of a blog post.  You can easily hack your bike rack to hold more weight by re-using old pieces of metal and wires as shown in the picture.

Anyways, here’s a cool bicycle DIY on how to make a cargo trailer for your bike, sorta like motorcycles.

The front half is an old 26er mtb frame that I had been using as an errand/beater bike. The back half is a 29er mtb frame that I had purchased online a couple years ago… it showed up with a bad head tube/dow
