The world's first triple front flip bike trick is plain nuts

Backflips, I get. You launch in the air, you tilt backwards, and you flip. Front flips are a whole other story. You launch in the air, you tilt forward (which is downward but you’re still going up), and then you flip? Crazy talk. And this triple front flip from Ryan Williams?

The ELF Electric Pedal-Mobile: What Happens When Your Bike And Car Bone

Of all the press cars I’ve had since I’ve moved to NC, the one that’s gotten the most attention by far has no doors, no floor, and all of one lonely horsepower. It’s both the crudest and yet most futuristic vehicle I’ve had so far. It’s a fascinating halfway point between bike and car called the ELF. I had one for a… »4/20/15 3:25pm4/20/15 3:25pm

Why Bikes Make Smart People Say Dumb Things

Scott Simon's bio on the NPR website describes him as "one of America's most admired writers and broadcasters," and it's tough to argue with that. As a Peabody-winning journalist with decades of experience, Simon's credentials are unimpeachable, and as the Saturday host of Weekend Edition, he regularly shows… »7/07/14 5:32pm7/07/14 5:32pm
