The Sbyke is a mix of a scooter, a bike and a skateboard (Photo: Stu Robarts/Gizmag)

There are all sorts of scooters, bikes and skateboards on which kids (of all ages) can get around. For those who can't decide which they prefer though, the Sbyke combines them all. Gizmag took a closer look at the London Toy Fair.  Read More

One of only 15 ever produced, this 1950 Vincent Series C White Shadow was sold for US$111,...

Only 15 White Shadows were produced, which makes them the rarest version of the second most desirable motorcycle to collectors (Brough Superior is the most coveted marque). It was therefore logical that this bike, which went to auction in Las Vegas last night, would join the other 14 Vincent V-twins in the top 100 motorcycles of all time.  Read More

The ZumZum balance bike assists children in learning bike balance and handling

Among the many bicycle designs we look at here at Gizmag, we see a fair number of balance bikes, including the multifunctional LittleBig Bike. We've even seen a wooden one or two, but we've never seen a balance bike quite like the ZumZum, which is built around a curved wooden frame that serves as its own suspension system.  Read More

The Evelo Omni Wheel

Whether you cycle to work or just for pleasure, there are no doubt times when a little help wouldn't go amiss. The Evelo Omni Wheel can provide just that assistance, replacing the front wheel of most bikes to give an electrified power boost.  Read More

Bontrager's TLR Flash Charger pump

Tubeless tires are pretty much standard on higher-end mountain bikes now, due to their lower weight and rolling resistance, along with their ability to contain sealant. However, they do have one drawback – you need to use a CO2 cartridge or an air compressor to put the things on. Bontrager has set out to change that, with its TLR Flash Charger pump.  Read More

Francois Gissy's rocket bicycle that took him to 333 km/h (207 mph) (Photo: Gerard Toutin ...

Last November, Frenchman Francois Gissy hit 285 km/h (177 mph) on a rocket-powered bicycle. Now, at the Circuit Paul Ricard in the South of France, he's knocked his own world record out of the park. Dialing in a massive 4.5 kN of thrust, which generates roughly the equivalent of 560 horsepower (418 kW), Gissy took his rickety-looking rocket bike up to a monstrous 333 km/h (207 mph), hitting top speed in just 4.8 seconds and generating about 1.96 Gs worth of acceleration. We had a quick chat with Gissy, who tells us he's hoping his next run will put him over 400 km/h (249 mph) in less than two seconds on a machine he's calling the "Spine Crusher."  Read More

The Wide Path Camper should be available for purchase in early 2015 and set you back aroun...

Denmark's Mads Johansen has designed a charming bike-towable caravan prototype that could – providing you're fit enough of course – prove handy for some long distance bicycle touring. Though still in the prototype stage, the Wide Path Camper should be up for sale early next year.  Read More

The Yerka Project is an attempt to create the 'world's first unstealable bike'

Billed as the "world's first unstealable bike," the Yerka Project is the work of three engineering students from Chile who have figured out how to make the lock an integral part of the frame.  Read More

Scorpion Trikes want to let you turn your Harley-Davidson V-rod into a three-wheeler

There are a lot of Harley-based trike conversions on the market, but most of them put two wheels out back. Scorpion Trikes in Wisconsin, however, plans to release a DIY kit with dual wheels out front to turn your Harley-Davidson V-rod into a reverse three-wheeler. Said to require no frame modifications and very few extra parts other than those in the kit, the Scorpion trike conversion offers two wheel independent suspension and an integrated look, all in an afternoon’s work.  Read More
