Many Radishes floating around the Maker Faire, they appeared to be in service for the event. I was going to find out what the deal was but I was there early and had my son in tow. He's five and wanted to see the robots, play miniature golf and eat junk food so I didn't get to do a lot of "daddy stuff." I will followup and see what the deal was.
Here is the Xtracycle booth with a dandy 2 story rig.
Swank Big Dummy that I think was part of the Rock-the-Bike entourage. It was right next to the stage.
This appears to be a multi-person setup for pedal powering the Rock-the-Bike stage. Sadly I did not see it in action, it looks very cool.
Here are a couple of Mundos that they had set up for pedal power.
Here is a very nice looking sound system. Gotta get me one of these.
And lastly check this out. It is the "bike valet" for the Faire. Serious bike love going on here.

"We keep this bike in and so far it has carried 30 kilograms all day every day on two trips. The first trip was ten days, covering 412 miles from Nuremburg, Germany to and the second trip was 15 days, covering 550 miles from Nuremburg, Germany to and around the Bodensee in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It is a Lightning P-38 with a FreeRadical and Wideloaders and has worked great. Be sure and keep the load as far forward on the Wideloaders and as the heavy weights as low as possible due to the low of this bike."
