Cyclisme Féminin - Le blog de Gwéna Living Light Sculpture Reveals Air Quality of Seoul Check out how a retro glass sculpture maps the city’s air quality ! In the center of Seoul ’s Peace Park , which is located across from the Korean World Cup Stadium, lies a very extraordinary sight: an outdoor glass canopy called the Living Light Sculpture. Created by Soo-in Yang and David Benjamin of The Living , and commissioned by the Korean Ministry of Environment, this amazing sculpture is more than just a fantastic piece of art. It actually projects up-to-date information about surrounding cities and their air quality. The glass skin on the sculpture is a map that covers 27 local neighborhoods, and every 15 minutes certain sections light up to tell you which city has the best and worst air quality. This sculpture is amazing to see at night because the cities with the best air quality light up the brightest, and they make the Peace Park look like a space station ! This is a very cool invention that designers Yang and Benjamin hope to see attached to the side of a building one day.

SPIN London | The Urban Cycle Show 2014 Boardman Pro FS Review Ever since we tested the stunning value Boardman Comp FS, we’ve wanted to get the Pro version in to see if the better shock sorts the ride and creates a pocket money trail rocket. It does, and the kit is unbelievable for the pricetag, delivering outstanding weight and performance dividends to create a genuinely great trail bike at a cost where others simply can’t compete. Ride & handling: Well balanced in almost every detail, and great value With an exceptional spec for the money, the complete weight of the Boardman is up with many £2,000 trail bikes. That translates to easy and permanently enthusiastic acceleration, and efficient and rapid climbing, which the rear suspension does nothing to dampen. While Horst linkage suspension designs are often prone to pedalling squat and a slightly sluggish feel, the RockShox Monarch shock has a distinctly terse feel. Up front, the RockShox Reba fork gives equally capable and controlled danger damping unless you push it right to the ragged edge.

Un autre regard sur le vélo féminin Top 5 Exotic Free Energy Technologies From PESWiki Shortcut URL: See also News:Best Exotic Free Energy Technologiesand Tracking the Position of the Top 5and Directory:Best Exotic Clean Energy Technologies This page is devoted to featuring the top five exotic technologies that we know of that are closest to market. Here at PESWiki we cover the entire spectrum of clean energy technologies, from conventional methods such as solar, wind, geothermal, tide, wave, river on the one hand; to very unconventional or "exotic" technologies such as cold fusion, magnet motors, overunity electromagnetic motors, gravity motors, and vortex technologies on the other. There are many ways to harness the wheelwork of nature -- energy sources that the environment provides free for the taking -- that are not only clean but inexhaustible and ubiquitous. Conventional renewable energy (there are 25 genres) has made great strides but has limitations. Runners Up Spreadsheet Best Exotic Clean Energy Technologies In the News

Cycles d’Art - SURPLACE Chill Déniché il y a peu chez un soldeur, voici un ouvrage très intéressant traitant des rapports entre l’art et la bicyclette de 1896 à nos jours. Cycles d’Art est en fait un catalogue qui fut édité dans le cadre de l’exposition du même nom, présentée à Roubaix puis à Paris en 1996, à l’occasion du centenaire de Paris-Roubaix. Comme on peut le constater, la bicyclette a été adoptée dès son origine par les artistes comme un sujet possible. Jean Béraud, Le Chalet du cycle au Bois de Boulogne (vers 1900) Lucien Jonas, Petit Breton (1904) Alphonse Mucha, Cycles Perfecta (1897)
