The Bike Design Project
by Oregon Manifest challenges five teams from five cycling-centric
cities in the US to design the ultimate urban utility bike. Each team is
composed of one high-level design firm and one American bicycle
crafter, and they are asked "who can make the most innovative utility
bike?” teams are required to build a fully functional prototype and at
the end of the development period, cycling enthusiasts are invited to
vote on which design they think is most visionary and best suited for
the everyday rider. After the votes are tallied, the winning bike will
be then be produced by Fuji Bikes and will eventually be available in retail shops.
Check out some amazing photos of the projects after the jump or view the full list of entrees and cast your vote here.
