…Trek’s District gives you the belt?

Trek District

Bicycles with belt drives used to be a boutique only feature just a few years ago, but as more and more people seek an alternative to automotive transportation, more and more bike companies are looking for ways to make the bike more consumer friendly.

Unlike a chain, belt drives keep you pant cuffs clean and your ride quiet, but they also can’t be repaired as easily or as on the spot as a chain can, and the price is also somewhat prohibitive.

…It’s Movie Monday: Death Race?

4 Fast 4 Furious is still far off on the horizon, but for those in need of a bit of automotive adrenaline at the movie theater, Death Race looks like it’s going to be fantastic:

As always, Jason Statham plays the ‘Transporter’ role, and continues to be the man’s man who won’t take shit from nobody without a fight. Hot babes are in abundance, the cars are souped up and tricked out beyond recognition, the action looks non-stop and intense, and even Tyrese makes the transition from 2 Fast to Death Race.

Could you ask for anything more from a summer-time car movie?

What’s better than one exotic car on the freeway?

Try hundreds.

Speed and Motion’s homepage is currently showing one of the most amazing automotive videos I’ve ever seen.

It’s a highway patrol led cruise down the freeway, and literally hundreds of high dollar exotics stream by. It’s too many to count in one go, so be ready for a few views.

…The digital dash was supposed to be the future?

12 Gauge

The ‘80s were definitely filled with their fare share of flair, and the automotive trend of installing digital gauges into new automobiles was no exception.

The victim of the desire to find uses for new technologies that were being developed, the digital gauge cluster might have looked flashy at the time, but now they just look silly and outdated.

Motive has put together a list of 12 fantastic examples, so if you’re ready for a trip down memory lane, then click the link and get ready for a digital revolution.
