    Folding bike as an electron shield (?)

    I had a good laugh today while poking around the TradeKey.com site looking for some bicycle parts for an oddball project I am working on for my daughter.

    Anyhow, I strayed into the dark recesses of the folding bike pages and saw a lot of unusual designs (a lot of A-style bikes), but this one really caught my attention. As a seasoned electrical engineer and casual cyclist, I had never come across this particular application for a bicycle.

    The frames of our bikes are made of magnesium alloy, it has much more advantages than the aluminum alloy bikes, such as light weighted, high strength; noise absorption, shake absorption, electron shield etc. It is a new for bikes.

    If you have any questions regarding our magnesium bikes, please do not hestitate to call us. Yuandong is a manufactory that you can trust to manufacture your products with great care and quality at the right price and we guarantee timely delivery.


    Perhaps I should consider ordering a bike to wrap around one of my focused ion beam columns to see if it really could block secondary electron emission. What a breakthru that would be!

    Don't forget to line your helmet with Aluminum foil as well!

    Aluminum really won't do it. If you feel the need to block those rays, go with mu-metal (nickel-iron)!
