Instructables member Woodenbikes touts the virtues of making bikes out of wood both here and in person at events like Maker Faire. While the idea may seem odd here in the States, there are other countries where it's not so strange at all as his collection of photos from around the world shows us. Check it out.

The Instructables community being what it is, I'm certain you'll find value in this project, and want to lend a hand. The couple making the film are fantastic people I'm pleased to count among my friends, and I'm completely amazed at the level of personal commitment they've demonstrated in making this documentary. Here is a quote from their Kickstarter page. Within Reach Movie documents a pedal-powered search for a place to call home in a sustainable community. Mandy and Ryan traded in their house and cars for a tent and bicycles to "bike-pack" 6,500 around the USA to visit 100 sustainable communities, looking around as they looked within. This journey and film has answers to the questions many of us are wondering: "Is it possible for all of us to live in a sustainable way?”, “what would the world look like if each of us simply did what we loved?” After circling the country, and talking with over 20,000 people they have found that not only is it possible but this is already underway. Here is the trailer so you can check it out!

Well after a request for an 'ible on basic bike tricks as a follow up to this cycling 'ible I'm wondering what tricks people would like to know about so far the list is:Pulling a wheelieStoppies/endos (stopping or moving with the back wheel in the air)BunnyhoppingSliding in a reasonable manner (as in tailslides)I'd like any other suggestions, the 'ible will include all requested tricks that I can do, heck got any for me to learn? Just throw them at me. If I can I'll add stalls and stuff to this but considering where I live finding a good place to do so is hard (it's still a building site for the most part...)EDIT: The instructable is now up

Hello, Have just made a bike trailer and used two suspension forks from the front wheel of a scrap bike to mount two 20 inch bmx wheels.Now the frame of the trailer is betweeen 5 and 10 cm below the level of the bike rack on the rear of my bike . Any suggestions as to how to couple the trailer to the bike? If needed I can provide photos if that would help

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.

I like bikes and to see how other people have them set up. I've noticed that through the years I have collected a few photos of the different bikes I've gone through. If you have a photo (or a few) please post them....... I'd like to see. Feel free to include trailers, gear, or anything bike related. Thanks
