I mentioned the G-max bike from Girs in a previous post. Coralie, an engineer who worked on the bike and documented its development in a blog, let me know that the G-max won a Eurobike Award 2008. Congrats to Coralie and everyone at Girs on the distinction. See the other bikes and products, including the IF Mode from Pacific, right here on the iF Design website.
Gizmodo had a couple of bike related posts recently. This thing reminds me a bit of another odd machine that I posted last year. Also on Gizmodo was a bike with an integrated ipod charger. I have seen that idea in several other places recently (one of the Cannondale D-Tank concept bikes comes to mind). I still don’t think mixing ipods and cycling it is a good idea, but I bet it is something we will see more of in the near future.
Many of you are probably already familiar with Taliah Lempert, but I have heard from a few other bike related artists lately that I would like to point out. Steve is the artist behind Velopaint and as the name implies he creates cycling themed paintings. David lives in Canada and creates recycled bike art. Leo is another artist who makes bike sculptures and jewelry in glass.
Finally, I’ll mention that Robb is giving away a couple pairs of Clix wheel release systems. Check out Mountain Biking by 198 to enter.
Have a good weekend everyone.
