Outrider Outfits All with Horizon All-Terrain Electric Trike, Intoduces Operation Turbo Tommy

The ability to ride is something we’ve all probably taken for granted at one time or another. But for those who can’t ride, Outrider is looking to provide the opportunity to feel that freedom from a bike that we all know and love, again. Outrider has created a full suspension, all-terrain, electric trike. Possible of 9 different configurations for people of all different physical abilities, including many quadriplegics and paraplegics. Co-developed with their friend Christopher Wenner who was an avid mountain biker until he broke his neck at 17, Chris started developing an electric bike that he could ride and then reached out to Outrider to pursue it on a bigger scale.

The rest they say, is history. Or it will be after the Kickstarter campaign is finished. They have already met their goal, but they have now introduced a new stretch goal of 250 backer or $115,000 raised, they will commence operation Turbo Tommy. Find out more after the jump…

Adding Sealant Made Easy, with new InectaLever Tire Lever Syringe

Injecta Lever

Tubeless is awesome. Finding out your sealant has dried up causing a flat is not awesome. When the sealant dries up you have two options, pull the tire partly off the rim and dump the sealant in, or remove the valve core and squirt it in through there. Curt and Colin Shelman think they have a better way – with a tire lever. Well, a tire lever that has been merged with a syringe to create an easy, no mess sealant solution. The Injectalever works without removing the valve core or tire from the rim, which should keep your valves free and clear. Still in the design phase, the duo has taken to Kickstarter to raise funds for the finished product.

Does public transportation only cover half your commute? Do you have to walk the rest of the way? Wouldn’t riding a bicycle make sense if it were only half its size?

Don’t Get Jacked, NoJack Enters The Bike Alarm Fray

NoJack Motion Activated Bike Alarm

You live in a densely populated, metropolitan city. You don’t own a car; you are “one less car.” You ride your bike. You ride your bike to school. You ride it to the office, to the café, to the pub. Maybe you even ride your bike for a living — hats off to the bike messengers. As such, one stolen wheel, one jacked seat, is all it takes to turn a good day bad, or leave you high and dry in midtown. But a second dimension of security is on the rise and it’s changing how we protect our bikes…
