Cool Souvenirs for Your Bike and for Your Kids

“I Love My Brain” the pay-off says on the bike helmet from the company Nutcase.
Andreas William Hansen totally agrees: “You have to be crazy not to use a helmet when you bike around the city.”
He adds, “It’s the one part of your body which cannot be replaced and you cannot live without.”

One in Three Copenhageners Bicycle to Work
Andreas works part time as a night porter at Avenue Hotel, while finishing his studies in economics and finance. In his spare time he’s a keen mountain biker and he naturally belongs to the group of one out of three Copenhageners who bicycle to work or school.
We’ve gone round the corner from Avenue Hotel to the local bike shop Batak to look for interesting bike accessories to inspire you for the next time you go shopping for souvenirs in Copenhagen.
“The bike culture in Copenhagen makes quite an impact on a lot of our guests,” Andreas tells me.
“Especially the Americans are impressed by our infrastructure. They just don’t have bike lanes like ours back home.”

Fashionable helmets from Yakkay
“I remember when these came out a couple of years ago,” he says about the fashionable helmets from Yakkay.
“They kind of made it OK for everbody to wear helmets, and they are cool as you can actually change the cover if you get tired of it.”

... a teenager would probably go for the graffiti version (DKK 499)

Edgy Graffiti Helmets
Andreas adds: “Personally I prefer the more classic bike helmet from Nutcase but I think a teenager would go for the edgier graffiti version of the helmet.”

Andreas’ Favourite Souvenir
However Andreas’ favourite souvenir is not for sale . It’s an ‘I Bike CPH’-t-shirt, which is part of the window display at Batak.
“The ‘I-Bike-CPH’-t-shirt would make a great souvenir. Also it’s very easy to pack and bring home,” he says.
Store-owner, Martin Batak, politely explains: “It was given to me by the City of Copenhagen to promote Copenhagen as a city of bicyclists.”
He adds, “You are not the first who wants to buy it though.”

The Little Red Roadster is a great gift for kids (DKK 1,099)

Great Gifts for Kids
“That would be a great gift for my niece. She turns three in a couple of days,” Andreas exclaims when he sees the Little Red Roadster from Radio Flyer.
“It reminds me of the little scooter I had, when I was a kid…”.

Claudia Bhimra likes the pretty Bike Cap which keeps the seat of her bike dry (DKK 125)

Gift Ideas for Teenagers
While buying gifts for little kids is a piece of cake, teenagers can be a bit more difficult to please. So I joined forces with Claudia Bhimra (aged 14) and Lucas Bhimra (aged 12) in order to find cool bike accessories for their age group.
“The Bike Cap is quite pretty and it makes a nice change from the plastic bag that most people use to cover their seat, when it’s wet,” Claudia says.

Lucas goes for the cup holder: “It’s a great idea that you can have a drink while you bike around the city,” and adds with a sly smile, “I’d probably use it for hot chocolate instead of coffee though.”

    Wear a bike helmet and look like a dork? No thanks!

  2. We think Andreas looks fine in his bike helmet, and we know for sure that he’d look stupid with a hole in his head …”

I think back to those authors of the pre-technology era, like Jane Austin and Charles Dickens, and I wonder how they did it. As much as I would love buy retin-a walgreens to visit them during their times, it would have to be with my laptop and digital camera. So it was with great joy and anticipation that I finally welcomed my laptop home last night. The wonderboy computer geek at Bethel Alaska PC managed to figure out the bizarre problem with my laptop, after disassembling the entire thing down to its component coils and wires. As he explained it to me, the power button, in the top center of the keyboard face, is connected to a plug-in on the inside under the keys at the top right by a small wire. Sometimes we find that the technology needs to be improved to allow us to fully address a question of interest. An example of an NMR microcoil is shown in this photo. The coil, approximately 1 mm in length, is made by winding copper wire around a polyimide sleeve. There is also a foundation degree in dental nursing at Barnfield College, Luton.

Because each type of CD1 protein folds to produce antigen-binding grooves with differing sizes and shapes, CD1a, CD1b, CD1c, CD1d, and CD1e have distinct mechanisms of capturing self-lipids and exchanging them for foreign lipids. The size discrepancy between endogeneous lipids and groove volume is most pronounced for CD1b. Recent studies show that the large CD1b cavity can simultaneously bind two self-lipids, the antigen, and its scaffold lipid, which can be exchanged for one large bacterial lipid. In this review, we will highlight recent studies showing how cells regulate lipid antigen loading and the roles CD1 groove structures have in control of the presentation of chemically diverse lipids to T cells.
