Bicycle helmets.
Drop handlebars in combination with skinny, ass hatchet saddle and super thin high pressure tires for city cycling and commuting.

Pssst, there isn't any science.

the latest attempted scammer was calling them "Z-torque" or some such ... tried to get money on kickstarter. Glad it failed.

That's why I put science in quotes. ;)

The LandRider autoshifting rear derailleur split cam thingy. Wow, an idea that just won't die thanks to heavy infomercial marketing.

I rode one that I was selling for my brother one day. Just awful erratically off-beat shift points. Spinning at 90 rpms? No, you're not, we just upshifted... The slowing and shifting to a lower gear wasn't terrifically, bad, though. The front derailleur worked normally.

Ugggh.
