Back in the days when I hoped to be a trendsetter, I used to scour the homepage of Kickstarter looking for projects to fund, like some kind of low-income bracket Miss Havisham. This is how my home has ended up littered with a game that promised to be the next Cards Against Humanity (it wa…

We’re Breaking Up: Bicycle Seat Thief Obsessed With “The Lingering Scent Of A Woman”

Dear Joji Kondo,

You lied to me! You told me the 200 bicycle seats sitting in our basement were from a faulty shipment at work and that you would be examining them as part of your company’s initiative on quality control. You started spending more time in the basement — sniffing the seats,…

Now You Can Have An Orgasm While You Ride Your Bicycle

With our busy lifestyles, multitasking is a necessity. Like say, for instance, if you want to try to squeeze in both daily exercise (or in the case of NYC’s new Citibike program, your morning commute) and a masturbation session, so you can save the 15 minutes you might spend clicking mindlessly through your Instagram feed.

A Bike That’s Perfect For Just Cruisin’

A couple of years ago, I had the chance to go to Amsterdam for a few days. My favorite part? No, not the weed, you stoners! It was the bikes! Most people get around on easygoing cruisers, with high handle bars that make it easy to see where you’re going as you’re biking around town.

Booze Peddler

Spring has sprung! Time to start riding our bikes everywhere — to work, to do errands, and to rooftop parties where the wine shall flow freely. The wine! Oh crap, we’re supposed to bring a bottle — perhaps a lovely Malbec or Pinot Grigio. Transporting the booze is no problem with oopsmark’s leather wine holster…

It’s pretty hard to shock New Yorkers, but it’s even harder to go all acrobatic on a float being paraded around town. Look at this lady go on The PoleRider, a rickshaw and mobile strip club!

Just a few days ago the U.K. hosted its third World Naked Bike Ride, an event to protest dependency on cars and draw awareness to the plight of riders sharing the road.
