Uma ideia gira para todos nós que gostamos de BTT mas nem sempre temos uma Câmara Municipal que nos ajuda com as soluções de parqueamento…

Parking your two-wheeler in a shady neighborhood, but left your secondary lock at home? No problem — to protect your wheels, just bend your bike around a nearby post and thread your U-lock through the whole kit at once. That’s the idea behind UK designer Kevin Scott’s folding bicycle, which is rigid enough to freely ride, but releases its flexible ratcheting mechanism when you push a lever on the side. The design won the 21-year-old student £500 at the New Designers exhibition in London this week. He’s presently looking for partners to help commercialize the concept, which looks more practical than some, so we expect it’ll be only a few years before you’ll see his creation zipping down the street. One question, though — why not go the whole nine yards and give it a built-in lock, too?

Passeio BTTecos.com em Sintra

On 2010-07-12, in Blog, by Tigas

Pois é malta, apesar do fraco nível de participações de BTTecos.com, lá realizamos mais um passeio na serra de Sintra.

Desta vez contamos com a companhia do pessoal da ADRAGA BTTeam que nos guiou por alguns trilhos espectaculares na serra.

Foram 30 Km intensos com subidas de cair para trás e descidas com drops do melhor. Não faltaram os singletracks pelo meio da vegetação e uma visita ao Castelo Mouro.

Ficam as fotos de grupo. Para a próxima levamos a câmara do Ruben. Os videos devem ficar demais…

Participantes: Daniel Parra, Pedro Almeida, Márcio Costa, João Camarão, Mário Tomás, Paulo, Eduardo Dias, Tiago Paiva

Pode ser que daqui a uns anos tenhamos todos uma destas mas por agora prefiro a MSC Koncept Carbon que anda lá por casa…

The Spider bike concept is designed by Zviad Tsikolia for Tsikolia Design R&D Ltd. The concept bike would be built using techniques form the aircraft manufacturing industry. Mostly that tech appears to be in the form of lots of square aluminum tubes.

The bike looks like a cross between a mountain bike and a road-racing bike with the fenders from that red bicycle that Peewee Herman road around. The thing has front and rear suspension and the spokes are angled to look like the legs of a spider.

The chain guides are stamped together using a cold process and the aluminum tubes are welded together. The thing looks heavy, but presumably, with an all aluminum construction it’s rather light.
