Hokey Spokes
hokeyspokes.com
What are Hokey Spokes?

Hokey Spokes Hokey Spokes are transparent “blades” that attach to your bicycle spokes. As these blades spin during riding, a computer inside the blades modulates the internal LED lights so that design images and custom text appear.

The user can decide how many spokes in a variety of colors they want to place on the bicycle wheel. Up to 6 “Blades” can be placed on each wheel. The more blades, the more visibility and persistence of vision at lower speeds. 2 Blades/Wheel look good, 3 Blades/Wheel look great, and more than three look amazing. The rider above has 3 Blades/wheel. In real life, they look even better! See Order Page.

Hokey Spokes are designed so that they fit virtually any mountain or road bike with a wheel diameter of 24″ or greater. Hokey Spokes can be used on front and back wheels at the same time.

Each Hokey Spoke contains a number of designs and messages. The blades can cycle through all the designs or can be set to play a custom text message all the time. Play mode is selected by using one of the waterproof keys located on any blade.

Now our Rainbow Hokey Spokes are available for only $19.95 for a limited time

InterSchola
http://interschola.com/index.php
K-12 schools and other public agencies “retire” a significant amount of property and durable goods each year. Asset reallocation is a large and complex issue for these agencies nationwide. These assets may include: classroom furniture and fixtures, instructional materials and supplies, lab equipment, physical education equipment, computers/technology, foodservice equipment and supplies, vehicles (cars, trucks, buses and other heavy machinery), office furniture and equipment, maintenance and custodial equipment, etc.

InterSchola provides a model designed to eliminate the headaches associated with surplus disposal by finding buyers for these valuable assets. On behalf of our Clients, InterSchola manages the auction process from start-to-finish, in compliance with complex legal Education Code that allows education institutions to sell their surplus in a public auction environment. eBay provides an ideal marketplace.

When such goods are designated as “surplus”, a school administrator is charged with disposal of the existing items to make room for new items. Though a good portion of this surplus has not reached the end of its usable life, currently, there are few venues where schools/districts can find sufficient value in the retired goods to make it worth their while to find an alternative for disposal other than expensive warehouse storage or the local landfill.

Buyers can use the website to locate items by asset category, and view past auctions, current auctions and upcoming auctions. Buyers can also access the InterSchola eBay store at http://stores.ebay.com/interschola, and sign up to receive notifications of items that will be available soon at http://interschola.com/join-newsletter.php .

InterSchola is a San Francisco Certified Green Business, and so far has brought back almost $10 million to schools and public agencies! In addition to providing this income, InterSchola has diverted over 10 million pounds from landfills! By completing the manufacturing cycle, InterSchola demonstrates a commitment to the “cradle to cradle” paradigm for using existing resources.
