Seoul cycle design competition 2010

Several readers have emailed me lately suggesting that I post a link to the designboom post about the Seoul Cycle Design Competition. I actually already mentioned it, but it was buried in a post full of links, so I can see how many people didn’t notice it. The competition has three categories: cycle design, infrastructure and fashion accessories. It is free to enter and the deadline for registration is July 5th, so get started working on your designs. You could win a portion of the $46,000 in prize money that they will be giving away.

Earlier this week, I briefly mentioned the new sub 700 gram Cervelo R5ca frame. Bike Radar gives us a first look at the new bike. Nice! I can’t wait to see what the “clowns” at Chrome Hearts do with this one.

Also at Bike Radar, I noticed these new 190 gram Look Keo blade carbon pedals, which use a carbon leaf spring in place of the traditional wound metal spring. The pedal surface is significantly larger too, which is something that I really like (by the way, I currently use Keo pedals on my road bikes because I like the larger platforms).

Quickrelease.TV ask the question, Can art get more people on bikes? Any thoughts?

Finally, I will mention this Bike Portland post titled, 100 miles on a tall bike. I don’t have anything to add, but I wanted to pass the link along because I just couldn’t stop looking at the “Peleton” picture. I have just never seen a paceline of tall bike riders in Lycra…quite a sight.

For all of you reading in the US, have a great Memorial Day weekend.

    Can art get more people on bikes? Cool Idea, but in most faced paced urban areas it is a long way off – before proper bike lanes are developed, along with the education and respect by both bikers and drivers. I do realize that it is beginning to happen in some city and rural areas.
