There’s a simple formula for every great beach cruiser: It should be easy to ride and be able to take a beating. That’s why it’s no surprise that Priority Bicycles, the company that made the $400 maintenance-free bike, has built a cruiser for use in places we need durability the most—at beaches and boardwalks.
I don't know if the new Akrapovič Full Moon concept bike is the unholy baby of a Vespa, a Harley Davidson, and a Tron bike. And I don't know if I like it or I hate it yet. All I know is that it got my attention. Looks like a space bike form behind:

Watching Summer ride her bike without training wheels for the first time brings me great memories. When it seems like she has everything under control, she suddenly bumps into a pole. It's like the pole had a magnetic attraction she couldn't resist. The same happened to me with a tree and I was fine afterwards too.

There are some significant barriers to entry in a triathlon. Physical fitness is one thing. What about all that gear?
Bicycles are so damn hip these days that they're infiltrating every aspect of culture. Whatever: here's a great, quirky piece of up-cycling that takes disused bicycles parts and converts them into a set of beautiful coat hangers.
