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!

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