The new Power-TEC Wheel Arch Reforming Tool is designed to roll out damage on the wheel arch lip and adjacent panels. It is also used to role back a wheel arch lip to give clearance when wider wheels and tyres are fitted.
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.

1995 Subaru Legacy - Quick and dirty repair of rust hole
Anyone who drives a Subaru in an area where there's road salt knows that
these cars pick up rust spots behind the rear wheels.
Since this is my daily driver, I can't take it off the road for more than a
few hours for necessary repairs. In this video, I chop out some rusty metal
and make a hard-as-a-rock patch.
Looks terrible, but is cheap, and should be durable, plus should delay the
future spread of rust in this spot.

How To Polish Aluminum Rims
This is how I polish aluminum rims. I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL.
How did I learn to do this? Just like you are right now-by watching
YouTube! Special thanks goes to DC Super Shine for all their videos and
Rims were originally on the back of a semi truck. The driver traded them
in for super singles, so I bought all eight. I polished them for my bus,
and the extras I polished to sell.
They are available for whoever wants to buy them.
Avery Dennison Conform Chrome - Fender
This is a video of Justin Pate applying Avery Dennison's new Conform Chrome
at the ISA sign show in Orlando (March 2012). The video demonstrates the
how this chrome can conform to a vehicle without whitening or wrinkles.
The adhesive liner is the same as the 1005 easy apply rs films which makes
Conform Chrome very easy to apply. * Please note that this chrome is for
for use as accent pieces on a car such as door handles, mirrors and
striping. Covering large sections of a vehicle such as this fender is in
most states illegal so when applying Avery Conform Chrome please adhere to
