As practical as cargo bikes are, they tend to look like the station wagons of the bicycle world. Japanese bike company Daga just rethought the idea and emerged with the Stroke, a three-wheeled version that changes the layout and geometry, as well as the power source. One electric motor drives the two front wheels, while a separate rear motor takes care of the back wheel, along with pedal power. The storage is housed within the ingenious hoop frame keeping the bike highly stable even when loads get heavy. There’s also a removable “trunk” storage binnacle that can roll just like luggage. The width of the bike is the same as a standard two-wheeler’s handlebars, so you don’t have to worry about the dimensions. The bike also leans like a regular bike and keeps all the wheels planted in the process. Who’s the rapid beast of burden now?

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
