Piano is a combined bikestand and park bench. The 90 degree angels creates an interesting and effectfull contrast in the landscape.The bench will come in three different variations.
Pretty cool concept. I’m for any design that promotes bicycle riding. I’d like to call out two matters which could prove to be troublesome if this actually gets put into production: 1. It doesn’t look very comfortable to sit on at all (ya know, the “90 degree angels”), and 2.Bicycles take up a lot of space — the bench would have to be longer to accommodate a few more bicycles. However, I can’t dispute that this is an awesome idea and would love to see it in parks and city streets some day.

The Schwinn Earth is a frame made from 90% flax fibre, harvested from Northern France and 10% glass fibre. I really love the concept, but I have a problem with mixing in composites in sustainable design. I know the 10% glass fibre is neccessary for strength, rigidity and waterproofing, but adding that 10% glass results in the frame becoming harder to biodegrade, which is exactly opposite of what the bike is trying to achieve.

“Minivelo” bicycles are bicycles with small, 20″ wheels but with road
or city / hybrid bike design influences rather than the BMX bike look.
Apparently these are the shit in Japan. With more and more people on bikes these days because of our fuel crisis I’m the sure the demand will reach the tipping point and we will see these regularly in America.
Very classy and good looking bikes from Velobris.

No not in America, silly pants. With hope though, some day soon.
