    The simple answer is yes, there are electric bikes that let you recharge the battery by pedaling or riding downhill - here is a link to one. That being said, I think you'll be dissapointed. It...

    My son has an Electra Straight 8 with 20"x3.0" 'Fatty-0' tires. I've had to repair flats multiple times (once it was both tires at the same time!) and ended up replacing both tubes. Each time I...

    Transitions lenses are great except from one thing - the hotter it is, the lighter they stay (or the less dark they get). I live in Southern California, where it gets to 110 degrees F routinely. ...

    Kensington now makes a 64gig USB flash drive. Just install everything on that. But I guess you'll still have to have your OS (es) installed on a platter-based drive.
