Oregon Manifest have a competition running to select an urban utility bike to be put into production by Fuji Bikes. This is a great example of innovation happening in the bike world outside of the arena of competitive cycling with bikes that make sense for commuting, hauling your shopping as well as going for a joyride. It’s worth spending time with the showcase videos and hopefully it provides a window into what we might be seeing at our local bike stores in the near future. Which one is your favourite?
I’m happy to see that the Chicago team isn’t the only one that totally fucked this up. These are all bad and their designers should feel bad.
