The Bike Design Project
BIKE CRAFT, DESIGN, INNOVATION.
The Bike Design Project is a pioneering bike design/build competition partnering high-level design firms with American bicycle craftsmen to create the Ultimate Urban Utility Bike - the next wave bicycle for the everyday rider.
5 TEAMS, 5 CITIES, THE ULTIMATE URBAN UTILITY BIKE
One team from Chicago, New York City, Portland, San Francisco, and Seattle - all working from the same design brief - will each develop their idea of the new urban bike.
Chicago: MINIMAL x Method Bicycle
New York City: Pensa x Horse Cycles
Portland: INDUSTRY x TiCycles
San Francisco: Huge Design x 4130 Cycle Works
Seattle: TEAGUE x Sizemore Bicycle
From July 28-August 2 choose your favorite bike by voting online. The bike design with the most votes will be deemed the Ultimate Urban Utility Bike.
FROM COMPETITION TO PRODUCTION
In a unique partnership with Fuji Bikes, the winning bike will go into mass production, debuting on the retail floors of national Fuji dealers in 2015. For the first time ever, a highly considered, collaboratively produced urban bike will be available to consumers.
