Futuristic cycling

The bike design project is a competition that has recently been undertaken to develop the next wave of ‘urban utility bike’. High level design firms from around the US have teamed with specialist bicycle craftsmen in an attempt to take out the title that will see the winning design moved from concept to production, hitting bicycle shops by 2015.

Contestants were asked to develop a fully functioning, road tested prototype with Seattle based Teague + Sizemore Bicycles taking out the coveted prize with their ‘Denny’ design. The design provides an ‘all in’ cycling solution to meet safety, security and convenience needs of the commuter conceptualised from the premise of ‘an everyday bike that removes the barriers to becoming an everyday rider’.

The design includes a removable handlebar lock system, automatic gear shifting, electric power assist, and removable battery for easy charging and even comes with a cargo platform to strap down your tray for coffee. On top of this the bike comes complete with fully integrated turn signals, head and brake lights that react to natural conditions and safety lights that flood onto the road around the bike.

The Denny is the perfect bike for the environmentally conscious. However, if you are looking at leaving the car behind and jumping on the ‘Denny’ to strip away those extra kilos, the design may be somewhat counterintuitive with its automatic-gear shifters, and motors making it very similar to a standard moped. Nevertheless the sleek futuristic design sets an intriguing platform for the future of commuter cycling.
