Bicycle Design winner

James and his team of celebrity judges have selected a winner for their bicycle design contest. Torkel Dohmer wins a Cannondale Bad Boy 700 bicycle for his efforts, which is a way better prize than the stickers and doodads I’ve been handing out!

The discussion on how the judges selected the winning entry is pretty fascinating, I think.


Have you seen this bicycle brake light?


Cabrillo College students will demonstrate their Energy Bike at the Swift Street Courtyard Bike Festival THIS SATURDAY in Santa Cruz, January 24th from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. The energy bike does a good job showing how much effort is required to power incandescent versus fluorescent light bulbs.

    that brakelight is sweet–if only it wasn't so damned cheesy up close. did they really need to plaster their logo across it larger than the LEDs?

    Why would a cyclist need a brake light?
