House Industries adventure cycling team, Finnish Edition

The House Industries Blog pointed me to “The Finnish branch of the House Industries adventure cycling team” and the video above.

The whole thing is pretty cool.

Helium Bike Case

The Helium’s unique 360° opening means that packing your bike is easier than ever.
It even has enough room for two wheelsets. We specifically designed a proprietary anchoring system for wheels, which guarantees they will be well protected and will not damage your frame in transit.
Air protection
The biggest innovation inside the Helium is its network of inflatable partitions, strategically positioned on either side of the frame. They offer more stability and protection, at a lower weight, than other systems. The partitions are held in place by Velcro straps, making cleaning and maintenance a breeze.

I was just saying how I never want to pack my bike up and put it on an airplane. But this seems like a good idea and a nice way to dump some of the weight from a traditional bike case. That said, having just experienced a slowly deflating Aerobed, I wonder how durable the inflatable partitions are.

out and about

I was out of town for a few days without a bike or internet access. So, quickly, some things I missed:

HotelsCombined.com (a website I’ve never heard of before) calls Sacramento the number 1 American Biking Destination.

Somebody bought Floyd Landis’ bike for $5.

And the Tour of California might visit Tahoe in 2010 2011.
