Survey: Bike Commuters for Intelligent Bicycle Lighting
As a bike commuter this is a pretty forward thinking idea and I believe would help in less commuter centric areas where auto drivers are not used to seeing bikes.
I am Joost van Leeuwen, a Dutch student of Industrial Design Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. This is a project I do for a big bicycle lighting company from the Netherlands (they supply bicycle lights throughout Europe, Asia and the USA).
My goal is to create the next generation of bicycle lighting; a light that senses and signals in order to make the road safer for the cyclist and the people around him or her.
If you wish to stay updated on this project you can follow me on the following media:

World Car Free Day is September 22
September 22nd is not only one of our children’s birthday, but it is also World Car Free Day. As normally I’ll be riding my bike to the bus stop both ways, but I encourage you all to chose your bike, public transportation or to simply walk to your destination if you can.
Reflective Rims and Internally Geared Hubs
Shimano Alfine and Velocity Halo Dyad
A set of wheels are in for review and in the midst of getting installed on the famous Salsa Casseroll. Utilizing a Shimano Alfine groupset I have been piecing together in the past 6 months, and the new Velocity Dyad Halo reflective rims.
The wheels and review are also based all around the Shimano Alfine groupset, as I’ve been interested in internally geared hubs (IGH) since trying the Civia Loring with SRAM i-Motion. Combine the IGH and a Dynamo front hub for a motion powered front light.
