    The Bike Design Project

    Anthony Le Bleis

      The Bike Design Project is an independent innovation platform for the urban utility bike. Five teams from five cycling-centric cities are competing to concept, create and champion their unique vision of tomorrow’s bicycle for the everyday rider.

       

      The winner of the competition is The Dunny Bike!

       

      The specs of the Dunny Bike are:


      —An electric motor in the front wheel helps power you up hills

      —The battery to power said motor is easily detachable and recharchable

      —The computer controlled gears shift automatically based on the terrain you are traversing

      —The handlebars double as a bike lock

      —The pre-installed light on the bike is sensitive to outside light, and adjusts brightness appropriately

      —The bike also comes with brake lights and turn signals activated by flicking the brakes

      —A netted storage bed is built into the front of the bicycle

      —The fender has been reduced to minimalistic rubber bristles to fight rain
