Funny Bike Sign

Planetary Gear Bicycle


The planetary gear bicycle may not be actually rideable, but it does qualify as an interesting piece of art. It is a model of the good old Penny Farthing bicycle and was built from Windform XT, which is a carbon fiber reinforced polyimide and is used to create high-performance parts for motorsports.
The bicycle was created by CRP Technology to demonstrate their capabilities. They crafted it using SLS rapid prototyping and gave it the planetary gear system. Not only does this system look entirely awesome, it also helps reduce the size of the huge front wheel by nearly 20%. The model is just 16-inches long, and thanks to rapid prototyping, it is all built as a single piece.

Mad River Ride August 30 Pics and Report



Quick wrapup - 44 miles
Averaged - 16.1 mph
Climbed - 1300 feet

We had three dogs chase us. And a turkey paced us behind his fence as we climbed a hill. He looked pissed.
We stopped at Ohio Caverns and passed by both Piatt castles.

For you cyclists - Anti Monkey Butt Powder

Anti Monkey Butt Corporation is dedicated to maximizing the performance and comfort of sports enthusiasts and people who work hard all day long. If you've suffered from the soreness, itching and redness caused by the friction of clothing against skin, then you know it can ruin your day. Our goal is to provide products that help to prevent "Monkey Butt" so you can enjoy your favorite activity.
The founders of the company include a health care professional and a heavy equipment operator/construction worker who are both dedicated dirt bike riders and racers. Over the years they've tried a variety of products to prevent "Monkey Butt." None of the available products however, lived up to their expectations for comfort, relief of soreness or easy availability.
In 2003, they decided to develop their own remedy to deal with the condition that had plagued them for years. After several months of testing different formulas, their development team found just the right combination of ingredients. They liked the results so well that they decided to market their creation as Anti Monkey Butt Powder.
Now, motorcyclists, horseback riders, bicyclists, runners, truck drivers and anyone who suffers from Monkey Butt can find relief by using Anti Monkey Butt Powder!
