Boxed Water

I was recently at my local coffee shop when I was shocked to see water in a box.  The most surprising thing is that it seemed almost too simple of an idea.  I was happy to find that  The Boxed Water Is Better company is located in Grand Rapids, we here at HGC like to support local business, especially those who are doing their part.  20 percent of their profits go towards water relief, and  forest restoration federations.  I generally don't drink bottled water since It's easy enough to get it from the tap, but i would be amazed to find that 20 percent of my water bill is going towards such a cause.

Good old days

Italian cyclist Giuseppe Martano, 2nd place in Tour 1934.

Gears were available at that time yet riders on the Tour were regulated to a single speed.?Multiple gears were for bicycle tourists, and they took away from the purity of the sport of cycle racing, according to the organizer at the time. Riders climbed and descended the same mountain passes as the modern tour with a single gear.

Junker projects

The other day I was rummaging behind my parents' garage and noticed an old junker bicycle. I knew it would be perfect to make a fixed gear for my brother, Alex.  A few of us here at HomeGrownCycles like to tool around the city on our fixies, and have decided that we will soon be playing some bike polo.  This old junker bike would be great for polo and cruising around town. The only problem:  the bike was in our neighbor's yard.   Read more

HD helmet cam

The new design uses the same basics chassis as Vholdr’s previous design but adds high-definition capability and a wide-angle lens option—a very usable 135-degree field of view. The $300 unit uses a rechargeable cell-phone-style lithium ion battery and records to an up-to 16GB Micro SD card. The entire unit is self contained, and setup is aided by two positioning lasers mounted to a rotating bezel on the front of the camera. Read more
