Rent-a-Scooter With Link Scooter System Concept

While I’d rather walk than be caught dead riding a scooter these days (I mean, come on, so 2001,) I’d much rather rent a scooter than buy one full-price, especially if I happened to be too lazy to walk the city streets, which would never happen because I am a brute man of laziness and blubber strength and steel.

Can’t Ride This: Bi-Cycle

Hmmm, I feel like designer Elad Barouch directly copied from Atomic Mass’ See Saw Bike when he came up with the design. Hmm, maybe that’s because Elad is the designer of the See Saw Bike.

Bright Bike Benedict

Benedict Radcliffe is an artist with a unique situation. He’s been creating beautiful fixed gear bikes over in London and the results are candy-like. Neon pink, orange, green and yellow adorn every angle of the bike, creating a look that even Naughty by Nature could appreciate. Too bad Benedict’s phone is ringing off the hook. The 1990s keep calling him; ...
