The Amazing Forkless "Phantom Bike" by Olli Erkkila Photo: Olli Erkkila Who Needs a Front Fork? Designer Olli Erkkila has made lots of unusual bikes, but this might be the strangest one yet. This Forkless Cruiser, aka Phantom Bike, looks at first glance like the front wheel is being steered magically (check out the video below). It's a cool effect, and even when you know how it works, it still looks strangely cool. More photos below. Nobody can say that it doesn't work! I think it looks especially cool when filmed in action from far enough away that you can't quite see the mechanism linked to the front wheel! Here's one of the original sketches.
ScorpioDesign Shapeshifter Der Entwicklung dieses Klappmessers lag die Absicht zugrunde, eine Klinge zu integrieren, die nicht durch die Länge des Griffes begrenzt wird. Dies wird durch schwenkbare Griffsegmente erreicht, die sich je nach Funktion als Griff oder Schneidenschutz entweder neben- oder hintereinander anordnen. Die Verriegelung erfolgt bei den aktuellen Modellen durch eine Kniehebel-Mechanik. Der Shapeshifter wurde ausgezeichnet als „Klappmesser des Jahres 2007“ im Rahmen der Messermacher-Messe Solingen. Geschützt durch Deutsches Patent No. 102006047835. Produktinformationen und Gebrauchsanleitungen zu Shapeshifter finden Sie im Download-Bereich.

Oak Island Treasure • View topic - Is it a hoax? carlsson, There are a good number of skeptics who visit this forum, so your question should generate a healthy number of replies. Did McGinnis perpetrate a hoax is a great question and one considered for a very long time. My reply to your question is 'No, McGinnis did not perpetrate a hoax." "Donald was already interested in the work on Oak Island before he bought his first property and settled on this very spot (on the island)." I respectfully say your recently acquired knowledge has you believe in the three boys, 1795, and an uninhabited island as your starting point to understanding the story. The Lunenburg County book of deeds held at the Public Archives of Nova Scotia show Donald acquired the first of many Oak Island properties on 3 Mar 1788. A final source of vital information are the Poll Tax records for Chester in 1791. The above documents and sources of information are only but a few of the many discovered in recent years and which tell of a much different Oak Island story.
