Yeah, I know it is not summer anymore, but I am heading down to the beach for a few days and it is still nice and warm on the gulf coast. While I am down there, I might have to try out this trick that I spotted on Pan-Dan. All I have to do is mount Ritchey MTB cleats to a couple of sponges and I will be ready for a few days of barefoot riding on my singlespeed mountain bike (Before anyone tells me, I know it is easier to just use zip ties, but I like the mental image of a big yellow sponge with a bike cleat on one side).
I spotted a few other bike posts on various design sites this week. The Veloxx bike from German designer Torten Heinrich was featured on Design Spotter. Swissmiss posted a picture of the aluminum rear suspension Like-A-Bike jumper. Lastly, I saw these pictures, which speak for themselves, on Inspireme.
Well, I’m off. I’ll be back sometime next week.
