How did I miss this?

A recent Treehugger post pointed to the Momo Design City bike, which somehow I missed seeing until now. The titanium and carbon city bike received a silver designation in the Eurobike Awards 2007 (you can also see the designs that received gold awards this year here).

The Momo Design bike looks very slick and features a belt-driven Nexus 8 speed drivetrain. I like the design, but I am a bit surprised though that they did not include fenders, or even an integrated rear rack, on this bike. Front and rear lights would have been a nice integrated feature as well. I guess that is why the Giant Citystorm received a Gold award and this bike only got Silver. Both bikes are very nice looking, but the Giant is a more complete transportation solution as it is sold.

While I am on the subject of Eurobike, check out the Cycling News coverage of the show to see anything else you might have missed. OK, that’s enough Eurobike talk. I can’t wait to see what is new at that other big industry show that is going on in Las Vegas this week.

    The citystorm looks really nice, but I don’t think the 24 spoke wheels are a good idea?

    This is a commuter bike, they should be designed to last a long time without attention, not to shave grammes and save a tiny bit of aerodynamics. With a good amount of weight on the rear and a heavy rider how long will they stand up?

    I know they don’t look as look modern, but 32 or 36 would have seemed like a more practical choice given the target user.

    …it is a lovely “design” but very few would be sold due too the cost of a ti/carbon commuter…it does lack certain basic amenities for the purpose…

    …i would suggest scoping joe breeze’s line of transportation bikes if yer lookin’ for a serious, practical commuting/shopping bicycle…
    …while a lot of the bigger companies realize there is money to be made in this slowly burgeoning market, mr. breeze has embraced the concept all his life…
