I need to buy a bike, yo.

I don't really know where to buy bikes at, but I sure as Hell need one. I need to know where I can buy a simple, non-expensive bike for preferably under 80 dollars. No mountain bike or fancy stuff like that. Just a normal bike, if you know what I mean. Thanks in advance, yo.

wind-up radio for bike?

Has anybody thought of the idea of using those freeplay wind-up radios to use as a dynamo for a bike? So you can power up your lights, charge your ipod or even more.

Any suggestions as to how to couple the trailer to the bike? If needed I can provide photos if that would help

Preventing Kicked-in Bike Wheels?

After purchasing the toughest bike lock I could find, I got the wheels kicked in by a frustrated would-be thief who could only get through the plastic coating with whatever tool he was using. (he incidentally got all of the other bikes locked up outside my dorm.) The closest lockers are a 30 min walk away, and they only allow for a small, easily cut padlock. I have an uncharacteristically small dorm room, so racking it in my room isn't really plausible. Any ideas? Maybe a couple of spokes reinforced with steel bar, or a cheap homemade bike shed?

How to carry 80 feet of PVC on a bike

We needed 80 feet of 3/4" PVC from the local hardware store. Since it's pretty much impossible to park near it and the nearest available car was a couple miles away anyway we decided to carry it by bike. All we used was a couple pieces of inner tube and Brian's Xtracycle. I bet I could've pulled this off on another bike I've recently adopted, but we wanted to be safe. Speaking of safe, this rode pretty well, but the left turns were a little touchy as the front wheel would rub against the PVC. Good thing I was only going a few blocks. Along the way guy in the street told us that that was how the Vietcong would attack them. "They used to strap missiles to bikes! Heheh. Yeah, they kept getting us."

Please looking for recommend on the best bike light DIY on Instructables!

Hello, Subject pretty much says all. I'm getting dizzy going through all the bike lighting projects here on Instructables :) Could anyone recommend a good setup that is : 1) Relatively low cost 2) Easy to do 3) Bright 4) Uses standard AAA or AA type batteries (already have these and great charger) 5) Possibly shared system for headlight and flashing tail light This is on a newer urban type bike, so I'd like something I can tie down pretty well. Been using the old hose clamp and 1 LED flashlight for a few years. It's not very good. Thanks for any pointers!

Bicycle Music

I ride in the San Jose Bike Party.  One of the things that I like is the music. People with all sorts of boom boxes, dj systems, and lighting mounted all over their bikes or trailers.  I would like to build something like that and I am checking out the many interesting projects listed here.  I am wondering though, is it possible to speed the music up or down to match the bike speed, maybe with a magnet on the wheel and a sensor on the frame?  I don't know if it would be a good idea, but the thought of a dirge when we are slow and chipmunks when we are fast is just funny to me.

Cold Weather Bike Wind Deflector

So I've taken an indirect pledge not to commute to school VIA car - by not buying a parking decal... Since school started, I've commuted, by bike, nearly 400 miles. But now it's starting to get cooler. I really don't like riding in cold weather. I typically wake up cold, get ready (still feeling cold) and getting on a bike when it's cold out is pretty uncomfortable.... So, for my next ugly bike abomination accessory.... My first wind deflector fairing prototype. I made a model in SketchUp (this was my "learn to use SketchUp" project), then from that make a development drawing (3D shape to 2D cutout) and cut that out of some scrap cardboard (I've got quite a bit that I rescued). Yes, there are flaws in this design - it's my first attempt :p As of now, I need to figure out how to mount this thing. I currently have some surplus 1/4" threaded rod at my disposal, I'm going to grab some and see where it takes me :p Comments?

Building a Steambike

And I may need a little help! Wondering if anyone knows of any decent resources for materials, how-to, etc. I have this piece of crap bike from Target that's been sitting in my basement since the dawn of time, and I thought I'd scrap it out and convert it into a steambike. The only things that I'll probably be using from the old bike are the frame and possibly the wheels. I'm debating on whether or not I want to try and use the chainset somehow... If anybody knows any good resources, lemme know!
