    This is a  bike shaped like a skinless T. rex(Tyrannosaurus Rex). Created by a  engineer and bicycle fabricator in Portland, Oregon. It is 8.5-foot tall and 12-foot long, which is currently available to purchase from the creator’s listing on Portland’s Craiglist.
    Specs:
    -12ft long from head to tail, 5.5ft wide stance, 8.5ft tall (size of a 12 year old young-adult T-Rex)
    -90lb recumbent tricycle made from chromoly steel, foam, and textured paint (200lb rider weight limit)
    -9-speed wide-range drivetrain with a top speed of about 15mph (comfortable cruising speed of about 7mph)
    -Seat is ~5ft off the ground so use a step ladder, or if you have good balance, use foot and hand holds hidden along the left side of her body.
    -Head is a marionette that turns side to side and opens her jaw; controlled by wire from handlebars
    -Arms are attached to pedals and can be controlled in combination with head to create believable performances (Sue can answer questions, wave at audience, snap her jaws in excitement, disgust, hunger, etc.)
    -Disassembles using basic tools into multiple pieces to fit within a pick-up truck bed for easy(er) transport to events
    Caveats:
    -Sue requires frequent touch-ups to her paint and foam. There are always bits of the sculpture rubbing against one another because she is a moving, kinetic, scultpure. I will include a bucket of textured paint with her.
    -Sue has handling quirks because of the geometry tricks and illusions I had to pull to make a vehicle that seemed to have the proportions of a real dinosaur. She is not a daily-driver dinosaur but is perfect for parades or the playa. She has good brakes and is stable enough if you know her limits. I'd be happy to offer dino riding lessons to prospective buyers. Please don't call just for joy-rides...

    Ford announced latest smartbike — the MoDe:Flex, latest concept bicycle has been designed to warn cyclists of upcoming road damage and potholes through a built-in vibration system. Ford says the app comes with an Apple Watch extension that can somehow detect potholes on the road. Riders will feel their handlebars vibrate when they come close to such hazards, but the car company doesn't explain whether the software relies on existing data, is capable of scanning the road ahead, or is simply employing advanced magic to spot the holes. The bike works with an app which provides real-time information on weather, congestion, parking costs, time, traffic, and alternate public transportation.

    A new bike lock called Linka on Kickstarter, and the cool part about it is that it will unlock itself automatically when you walk up. It uses a smartphone app to sense your approach. Since the Linka lock is attached directly to the frame, you don’t have to do anything but press the power button on the lock three times and then walk away when you are at your location. If someone tries to walk off with your bike, an alarm goes off and you receive a mobile alert. It looks cool.

    Bike manufacturer AERO created this prototype bicycle frame from layers of birch to test wooden structural techniques that can be applied to architectural projects. The bicycle was conceived by Martino Hutz, Atanas Zhelev and Mariya Korolova whilst working on a wooden structural design for a London house, during their studies at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. The bike frame is composed of lamellas—millimeter-thick sheets of birch wood glued together into strips that splay out at the points where the crank and peddle are fixed, as well as below the seat. A beautiful bike.

    Francois Gissy rode the bike at the Circuit Paul Ricard in the south of France last Friday, watching Francois Gissy speed over 207 miles per hour on a bicycle with a rocket.
    "François Gissy has reached an incredible speed of 333 km/h on the rocket-propelled bicycle designed by his friend Arnold Neracher. More than 300 km/h on a skinny and completely stripped bicycle, this is amazing, and crazy! Who thought that one day a daredevil on a bicycle, with a rocket under the saddle, could travel the quarter mile in less than 7 seconds? "

    Shane Chen's Lunicycle is designed to give the rider the same experience as riding a unicycle without the difficulty.  First, Lunicycle doesn't have a seat, so you don't have to relearn balance in a different body position. You stand on Lunicycle, so you balance yourself in the same way you would while standing.

    Korean manufacturer Bygen’s Hank Direct Bike simply ditches the chain and switches it for a direct-drive system. Instead of a chain or belt drive, it has levers that transfer power from the pedals to the rear wheel. This means the pedals are directly powering the rear wheel, much like a Penny-farthing’s pedals power the front wheel directly. But unlike a Penny-farthing, the Hank isn’t a fixie: it has a hub transmission with three available gear ratios. The pedals extend forward and are placed at a natural angle beneath the rider, while the entire bike doesn’t actually fold but rather telescope back into itself. The top post is completely adjustable, so even when you take it out of the retracted position, you don’t have to slide it all the way forward, allowing you to lock it in place at the most comfortable distance. Price and availability haven’t been announced, however.
    - Simple and fancy design with no BB and chains
