Submit your best bike concepts

Miscellaneous 5 6

I was checking out portfolios on Coroflot earlier today and ran across a few interesting bicycle concepts. Pictured here is a rendering of a city bike from Navin, an industrial designer in Bangalore, India. You can check out more of his bike renderings here.

Browsing through a few portfolios reminded me how much I love to see concept bicycles from design students (or from anyone else for that matter). If you are reading this and have a cool bike rendering or sketch to share, send it to me at If you don’t have any bike renderings and need an underlay to get started sketching, try the 2D road bike or mountain bike templates that I posted a while back. Several bike industry people read this blog from time to time, so it could be great exposure for you students out there who are interested in a career designing bikes. Come on; let’s see what you’ve got.

    I’ll have to see if my kids will design a couple of bikes :-)

    Perhaps a “children of bloggers bike design” contest?

    Good idea Fritz. You probably remember that I posted one of my sons’ bikes concepts a while back, and it was a lot cooler than anything I could come up with. Put your kids to work and I will post the results. Let’s see who else is game.

    Hi I’m an industrial design student from the Philippines and our current project is to design our own bicycle. I was having a hard time designing and making concepts because I’m really not a bike fanatic. :p Its a good thing I bumped into your blog, I really learned a lot from it. Now I can sketch more bikes in less time. I’ll show you our project when it’s done and tell me what you think about it.

    Deeyawnah, I am glad to hear that the blog helped you out. I’ll look forward to seeing your design when you finish it.
