R.I.O.T Wheel FAQ's (please read)
Help RIOT Wheel??? Please! :)
This chunky 1100-pound machine is Jake Lyall's RIOT (Re-Invention Of The) wheel. Lyall's monowheel is unusual because it does not use the rider's weight to provide the reaction to the engine's thrust on the wheel. Instead the rider is outside, and the reaction is given by a lead-weighted Honda 80cc 4-stroke scooter engine suspended from a central shaft, driving through a sprocket attached to the wheel spokes. A separate 450-pound counterweight keeps the rider hovering above the ground at the front. Steering is done partly by precessing a 65-pound gyroscope to give yaw, and partly by the rider shifting his weight.
The current land speed record for a mono wheel currently stands at 56 Mph!

Burning Man 2009 - The Mondo Spider
The Mondo Spider (http://mondospider.com) is a diesel-powered hydraulic
walking machine. It weights about 1,600 lb.
To see more of my videos, subscribe to my channel:
De-Inventing The Wheel - This ridable mechanical walking machine was
designed by a team of artists and engineers as an industrial metal beast
destined to rock Burning Man and the world of kinetic sculpture. Inspired
by Vancouver Junkyard Wars, this giant hydraulic monster was hewn from
steel with passion and precision. Call it robot... call it biomimicry...
call it what you will... We call it... The MONDO SPIDER.
It was originally shown at Burning Man 2006: Hope and Fear.
For more information about this motorized spider, go to
The Mondo Spider was designed by Leigh Christie, Jonathan Tippett, Charlie
Brinson, Ryan Johnston and a bunch of other peeps from the eatART
Foundation http://eatART.org/ (although the Mondo Spider predates eatART).
Video shot at the Burning Man 2009 festival (Black Rock Desert, Nevada).
The 2010 version of the Mondo Spider is zero-emission electrical,
battery-powered, with batteries recharged using solar panels.

Airless tire test Humvee vs Hummer
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Non-pneumatic tires (NPT), or Airless tires, are tires that are not
supported by air pressure. They are used on some small vehicles such as
riding lawn mowers and motorized golf carts. They are also used on heavy
equipment such as backhoes, which are required to operate on sites such as
building demolition, where tire puncture is likely. Tires composed of
closed-cell polyurethane foam are also made for bicycles and wheelchairs.
The main advantage of airless tires is that they cannot go flat, but they
are far less common than air filled tires.
Airless tires generally have higher rolling resistance and provide much
less suspension than similarly shaped and sized pneumatic tires. Other
problems for airless tires include dissipating the heat buildup that occurs
when they are driven. Airless tires are often filled with compressed
polymers (plastic), rather than air.
Michelin is currently developing an integrated tire and wheel combination,
the "Tweel" (derived from "tire" and "wheel," which, as the name "Tweel"
suggests, are combined into one new, fused part), that operates entirely
without air. Michelin claims its "Tweel" has load carrying, shock
absorbing, and handling characteristics that compare favorably to
conventional pneumatic tires. Automotive engineering group of mechanical
engineering department at Clemson University is developing a low energy
loss airless tire with Michelin through the NIST ATP project.
Resilient Technologies and the University of Wisconsin--Madison's Polymer
Engineering Center are creating a "non-pneumatic tire", which is basically
a round polymeric honeycomb wrapped with a thick, black tread. The initial
version of the tire is for the Humvee and is expected to be available in

Dyno. The motor is a
4.9L flat 12 which has been upgraded with EFI via a Bigstuff3 PRO SEFI ECM
and twin Precision turboturbochargers. At this stage the motor is running
6psi Boost and has no internal
modifications. We ran it from 3500rpm to 7500rpm and it produced 650hp and
600lbs*ft of torque. Enjoy!
Also I just posted a new video on my channel showing a walk around of the
car with some of the new wheels and brakes mocked up on it. If you guys are

The ShockWheel invention by Chet Baigh
Also check out my watch company!: http://www.SOLARRI.com This is the FIRST
RIDE of the ShockWheel in slow-motion! Whoever licences the "Shock Wheel"
will dominate the bicycle world for years to come.
...and will likely put everyone else out of business.
- The ShockWheel is a historical improvement in ride comfort.
- The bike in the video has a disabled front shock fork.
- This Prototype has a 100mm extension travel. This can be increased or
decreased- as well as firmness.
- I have also patented numerous methods to make the ShockWheel adjustable-
For those who want a firmer/softer ride, or differ in weight.
- "Bow-Spokes" may be made to handle various compressive forces to
accommodate riders of various weights. Each non-adjustable wheel may
accommodate a huge weight range.
- The bow-spokes weigh +/- 6 ounces
- Uses a standard rigid bike rim and tire
- 15 years ago, the smart man would have foreseen that many bikes would
have shock absorbers. In 2012, the smart man can predict many bikes will
utilize the ShockWheel.
- I will commit my expertise, time, business acumen, marketing acumen, and
ingenuity to any company agreeing to an exclusive license.
- Production methods and materials may be my "secret recipe" until
- Venture capital backers are welcome to talk if licensing falls short of
- It can be expected that the Shock Wheel will initially be readily adopted
by specialty bicycle manufacturers, specialty bicycle stores, and their
clientele. Early-adopters will surely pay an excessive amount for Shock
Wheel technology. This will afford the company manufacturing and selling
the Shock Wheel greater revenue AT a greater profit margin. The
approximately 4,200 specialty bicycle retailers commanded approximately 14%
of the bicycle market in terms of unit sales in 2010, but 44% of the
dollars, a dominant dollar share of the $6 Billion total U.S. bike market
in 2010. 44% of $6 Billion is $2.64 Billion.
- Early-adopter novelty will wear off around 2-5 years from debut of the
Shock Wheel. And saturation of the Shock Wheel within specialty bicycle
world should occur within 5-8 years. At this time, it may make sense to
ALSO allow distribution into the mass merchant channel under a newly-formed
economy brand. Approximately 75% of U.S. bicycle units were sold through
the mass merchant channel in 2010, representing 36% of the dollars due to
the average selling price of $79. Yet 36% of $6 Billion is $2.16 Billion.
- The Shock Wheel may be best suited for mountain bikes, hybrid/cross,
comfort, youth, and cruisers. Together these categories comprise 77% of the
bikes sold. (Source: U.S. Commerce Department statistics) The remaining 23%
comprises road bikes which seem to be more attractive without shocks.
Further Projections are available.
The present invention relates to a shock-absorbing performance wheel
comprising bow-shaped spokes which act as bows or springs to dampen
acceleratory jerks brought on by unwanted shock. The said invention also
comprises a non-circular hub onto which a plurality of "bow-spokes" are
directly affixed to the periphery of said hub.
