BikeHacks Reader Matteo recently contacted us and noted that he had turned an old wheel into a ceiling light. His bike deco hack kicked my brain into search mode for another post along the same lines, and before I knew it was in full search mode for hacks we have posted related to decorations made from bike parts. A bunch of time typing and mousing through memory lane resulted in this cumulative post. If you have a bike deco hack you would like to have featured on let us know. 1. Rim Ceiling Light - Vintage 100 Must See Movies: The Essential Men’s Movie Library For whatever reason (most likely the fact that viewing is easier than reading), films don’t seem to get the same kind of cultural respect as books do. Which is a shame because excellent movies can be just as entertaining, mind-expanding, and life changing as good books. Scenes, characters, and quotes from the greatest movies stay with us long after we view them.

And for better and for worse, film has had a huge impact on masculinity in the 20th Century.

The highly-desirable 1000 watt Limited Edition TidalForce M-750 x2.0 electric fold-up bike May 13, 2009 Military-funded projects often pave the way for a much better consumer product, and although the original DARPA funding of the development of the Tactical Electric No Signature (TENS) Mountain bike for Marines and paratroopers is now over a decade old, hold onto your hats folks, because the design has been upgraded and will be sold in limited quantities with a 1000 watt propulsion system. The TidalForce M-750 x2.0 is based around the commercially available (and ingenious) Montague Paratrooper folding bike but has a top speed of over 30 mph and range on a single charge is 25 - 28 miles, using the electric power only. The E+ advanced propulsion system features nine forward power modes, nine resistance (exercise) modes, cruise control and anti-theft.

Cycling jeans: five of the best Howies Road denim jeans (£80.10, These look to all intents just like a regular jean – albeit cut for the Hoys among us, the track cyclists with over-developed thighs – but they do have a few tricks hidden up their trouserleg. First is the reflective chevrons that are exposed when you roll up your right leg. Then you notice that they make a noise, the telltale rustle of a fabric that is waterproof, or at least water-repellent; Epic denim offers protection against everything from UV rays to mosquitoes to water, but it is a little bit ‘crunchy’ like a waterproof jacket.
