I saw a few bike bike related posts on various design blogs this week. This first one I heard about on the Spokesman #6 podcast (if you don’t already subscribe to the Spokeman podcast, I suggest you go to the site and do so). Opel is offering an integrated bike rack on its European Antara and Corsa cars. The rack holds two bikes and hides away behind the bumper when not in use. It is cool that Opel is offering an OEM bike rack and I think this is a nice clean design.
Elsewhere in the design blogosphere, we make money not art posted a tricycle design for kids in the hospital, Pan-dan posted an epoxy reinforced lace bike basket, and Cool Hunting posted a couple of Mercians designed by fashion designer Paul Smith.
Whew, that was quick, now I’d better get back to work.
