|The Bike Design Project.|
The Ultimate Urban Utility Bike.None of the entries are my ultimate commuter bike, for various reasons: only one style takes into account a low step-over height (many ladies wear skirts) and designs are usually by men, for men. because well, let's face it, males are the predominant riders, even as commuters.
A Chicago reporter who briefly rode one of the entires in the parking lot commented, "It's a pretty aggressive position, not for an aging rider". Which brings up another point: if this is someone's idea of the best commuter bike, will it attract baby boomers?
Just saying...but do check them out and vote. Contest ends August 3. The videos are cool. The style is quite sleek, using innovative design. I would've liked to give my input along with my vote. But you know, I am the minority.
