Her Bike, His Tires

I really like the look of this simple bike. 

The pink frame for her. 

The blue tires for him.

This bike is unisex and a standout!

Super Cool Military Wheels



The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has come up with a Reconfigurable Wheel Track (RWT). 

The tires can switch shape from round tires for flat terrain to triangular tracks for soft or rugged terrain in just 2-seconds!

You can see in the screenshot the rear wheels in tire formation and the front wheels changed to tracks. 

The agility of this technology makes for better maneuverability and survivability for our troops and their transports and combat vehicles. 

I wonder if someday soon, they will commercialize this technology so rather than all season/year tires or snow tires on our cars, we have these gorgeous ruggedized military grade babies.

I for one would gladly pay extra! ;-)

World's Most Secure Tire


I saw these tires with 24 wheel locks around them.

Now one lock is a good safety measure to discourage people from taking you tires, but 24 is another level of protection, indeed. 

These tires were on a Jeep Wrangler and fit the style of the old army jeep design very well. 

I know these aren't real wheel locks and are just a design to make the rims look cool--and I think they really are. 

Lock 'em and roll. ;-)
