When the bike builders at Stringbike set out to create a completely different bicycle, they opted for a completely unique drive system that uses paracord wrapped around a spring-loaded drum instead of the standard chain and cog system. That’s right, the Stringbike doesn’t have a chain. Power is distributed equally to both sides from the individual systems connected to each pedal, kind of like electric cars with individual wheel motors. If you opt for a multi-speed option, gear changes happen with the mechanism sliding up or down, moving plates as opposed to onto different cogs. The new system is much quieter, more balanced and, most importantly, won’t leave your calves covered in grease. The Stringbike is available in E line (carbon), A line (aluminum), S line (single speed) and D signers (limited series) options with prices starting at $1,100.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
