A lot of great bike design content has popped up on the web in the week or so that I haven’t been posting. I won’t elaborate, but I want to quickly pass along a few of the interesting things that I have seen lately.
First, of course, is The North American Handmade Bicycle Show, which just wrapped up in San Jose, CA. Cycling News has posted a lot of pictures from the show. Several bloggers also covered the event. Fritz from Cyclelicious wrote about it and posted some pictures to his Flickr set. Jonathon from Bike Portland was also there to see the many Portland based builders that were exhibiting. Gene from Biking Bis posted about several others who wrote about the show. The pictures shown here came from a Hypebeast post that I saw via Biking Bis.
Phil posted about the new commuter oriented bike from Mercedes.
Gene pointed me toward a folding bike concept on SciFi.com. Does anyone out there care to explain how this thing works? It looks cool, but the steering and drivetrain systems appear to rely on some mysterious future technology.
Michael Young designed an urban bike for Giant called the Citystorm. This bike has some really nice details. It probably deserves its own post rather than being buried here, but I don’t have time right now. Do take a look at it here and here.
OK, that’s it for new bicycles, but wait, there is more. Nadejda posted about the London based “Reinventing the Bike Shed”, design competition and We make money not art had an interesting post about the Human Powered Workshop in Belgium. I could go on, but I think this post is starting to suffer from link overload. I’ll be back next week. Have a great weekend everyone.
