tandem bike crashSome things are absolutely amazing and some other things are just, well, um...strange. Take for instance the amazing bicycle hack I ran across on the Core77 Industrial design blog. While the concept is positively brilliant in practical application, in execution the results could be less than desirable. Having logged literally thousands of miles in bicycle travel myself, I can tell you that the "Grocycle", a hybrid grocery cart-bicycle, is a major disaster just waiting to happen.

I love the idea but I hope the rider in the picture over there has his health insurance paid for in full because it will only take one pot hole the size of half a grapefruit and that bike rider will get an asphalt nose job, or worse. Perhaps we should all pitch in and buy him some larger wheels for the front of his cart, and a good bicycle helmet also.

    Dude, this is totally a doctored photo, if you look at it closer, it doesn't look right. Also the fact that this is put up on the site by a photographer is a tipoff, I am sure he has met Photoshop.
