a Masi Clone Project

Enjoy the Speedplay gallery that “chronicles the start-to-finish construction process of my modern replica of the 1961 Masi Special.”

Free Bikes in New York

During the Tour de France, the Forum for Urban Design and Storefront for Art and Architecture “is revolutionizing transportation networks and greening the urban fabric” with a Bike Share Project demonstration. That’s about the coolest thing to do in NYC that I could imagine and can only hope the demonstration turns into a project like Pamplona, Lyon, Paris, Barcelona, Stockholm and Oslo. On a more local scale, with less design aesthetic and catchy slogans, is Buffalo Blue Bicycle or the Vancity Bike Share.

A reader pointed us to a newswire story today on Paris being a city of lovers and bikes, with the whole city becoming a bike zone.

Caravan of Schwag in London

From Bike Biz, a pledge from the Mayor of London to give le Tour an “unforgettable send off with” 11 million pieces of schwag. Expect some of that schwag, like the Transport for London bracelets, to find their way onto eBay or at least hanging on a shop wall somewhere. And we’ll check flickr for the photos and the spectating blogs who’ll watch for the Specialized Angel, the Devil, and the el Dope penis graffiti.

The Future of Cycling

While the sport destroys itself with scandal after scandal, le Tour looming, and Landis coming to town later this month with his book, I couldn’t help but think these kids lining up for their race at Matava were the future of cycling.

As for the race, the boy in the red helmet was seriously under-geared and spun his little legs out, but kept falling off the pace so I stayed with him. Junior Hugga raced her first race and got 3rd.

Propeller Trike v. Crane Bike

Put a trailer on that propeller trike and you’ve got one hell of a Sport Utility Bike pushing 300 rpm at 20 mph with fancy, rave-quality LEDs. Linked from Slashdot to a Popular Mechanics article, the propeller trike qualifies as a freak bike and an guaranteed spot in a future Road Warrior film, but I don’t think it can beat the crane bike, which is well a pedal-powered crane and used by the Red Moon Theater.
