Hyper Cool Shit (for cycles)


19 June 2003
Tampa, FL

   Exactly what qualifies as Hyper Cool Shit (HCS)? Do I really have to explain it to you? Think about it... something that would make you do a double-take in traffic as you passed a bike with this on it -- even if you weren't a biker! Usually a new, radically different concept. Not the same-old, same-old. It could be hoopty, or it could be technologically advanced, but all in all, whatever it is, it has to have at least two of three things: a cool factor, a techno-geek factor, and/or realizable benefit. If someone brings out a new fuel management chip for a fuel-injected bike that adds 1% benefit at the top end, it's not really HCS. If someone makes another exhaust that sounds like everyone else's, that not really HCS. So here is our starting list of Hyper Cool Shit things...

ConvertiBARS
Rapidly change your riding position by altering your bar location...
Allows you to change handlebar position anywhere in a range of up to 4" up and 6" back in 60 seconds:

ConvertiBAR up & down positions
All the way down.... OR all the way up and back...
(or anywhere inbetween!)

Just wish they were cheaper ($299 + additional hardware as needed -- longer brake lines, wire loom extenders), but it's a hyper cool shit idea... If they were $99, everyone would have them. Or if any particular OEM manufacturer got smart, they'd buy the idea from these guys and integrate into all their sport-touring bikes.
Anyway, See: ConvertiBARS

Available for only $195.00 (includes the chrome brackets for that price!)

Training Bras, I mean Engine Bars...
OK, let's face it, every rider has to start somewhere, and one of the most obvious parts of that is dropping the bike. Now, I know there are firms out there that make large, kind of obvious looking really bulky engine guards (crash bars), mostly for cruisers. As I've mentioned before, my other half is learning to ride and finding crash bungs, frame sliders or even crash bars for a '94 Ninja 500 is a bit difficult. Then I stumbled across Renntec, a British outfit that makes tiny engine bars for virtually all sport bikes, street-sport cycles, sport-touring bikes, that don't have 100% coverage on the fairings (small enough not to be obvious, but strong enough to keep the motor from being damaged, usually matched to the frame, and provides a little insurance for your ankles as well):

These guys also build after-market grab rails that actually work, and sports racks (think rear shelf racks for behind the passenger seat) for virtually every sports bike on the planet.
