Fresh on the heels of my last post, we have a reader submitted design from Roel Verhagen-Kaptein (perfect for a day like today when I am pressed for time).
Roel explains that the City Speeder is “a recumbent bike made for commuting in a fast and comfortable way. The streamlined body makes the bike fast and keeps you comfortable and dry. The streamline baggage compartment can hold your backpack, suitcase or can be used as a child seat. The design layout makes that you can use all standard parts for the driveline.”
In addition to the City Speeder, Roel has another recumbent design in his coroflot portfolio, the Evolution bike which can be seen here. Both the City Speeder and Evolution were originally designed for the International Bicycle Design Competition, which ends with an awards ceremony each year at the Taipei Cycle Show (coming up in just over a week).
