    Tripendo Cornering Trike

    November 12, 11:22 AM by TreeHugger in Cars

    What's wrong with this picture? Nothing. Do not adjust your screen. It's a Tripendo going into a bend. Unlike 2 wheel bicycles, most 3 wheelers, although stable on the flat, just can't get up a good lean as they hurtle around a corner. That outside

    Schwarzenegger+Hummer+Green???

    November 11, 2:48 PM by TreeHugger in Cars

    Hasta la Vista, Gas-Guzzler? The words "Schwarzenegger" and "green" don't really seem a natural mix. After all, this is the first civilian to drive a Hummer (convinced GM to build a consumer version). But when campaigning for office, Governor

    An SUV you could love...The Segway Centaur

    October 28, 7:19 AM by TreeHugger in Cars

    Maybe it was the shudder that came from seeing the US President fall over on their Human Transporter that got the engineers at Segway thinking new thoughts. Like 2 more wheels for stability. Whatever the stimuli, they ran up this little beauty, called

    eGo ElectricBike - Can you say Geek-Chic?

    October 18, 9:00 AM by TreeHugger in Cars

    Since this bike is completely electric, it pretty much speaks for itself. We'll give it a few words anyway. It runs off two 12-volt batteries, goes up to 23 m.p.h., and has a range of accessories to soup it up--from cargo carriers to wicker baskets. If
