Pedal Powered Phone Calls

The modest success of our first Bike Blender Mobile Social, got DL and I thinking… What other pedal powered businesses could be out there? With a little web searching, and some help from our friends over at Surly, we found the following Nicaragua based pedal powered phone booth. Using an old computer, car battery, and common 3 wheeled cargo bike, this entrepreneur can charge the battery while pedaling to his prospective customers. Check out the video for a demonstration of this mobile call shop.

Have you run into any unique bike businesses here or abroad?

This bike was like bluegrass music to me – I’d never buy it, not my thing, but certainly appreciated the artistry, craftsmanship, and style.


Spotted at the bike races this weekend.

Frankendork Pursuit Tall Bike

When you’re a frame maker tired of turning out custom bikes for other people… What do you do? When you’re Marty from Geekhouse Bikes, you build yourself, (perhaps the world’s first,) custom pursuit tall bike. Why? Because you can. This little number is lovingly named “Frankendork.”
