I'd love a bike like this!
OK, so I get that this is a design website, so it's going to lean more toward the "Ooh, lookit the shiny newness of this whatever-we-happen-to-be-gushing-over-at-the-moment" end of the spectrum. But seriously, tell me about the goddamned bike. Does it actually function? Because it looks like it doesn't. Are the wheels made of some super high-strength, lightweight material that isn't going to crumple like wet toilet paper at the first sight of a pothole? If not, they'd have to be really heavy to put up with any kind of riding. What type of mechanism drives the rear wheel? Maybe tell me a bit about that. Drivetrain braking only? That sucks. The top tube looks like it might fold down to make it more compact for storage. How about a few words on that? For its intended use - city riding - this thing is absolutely begging to be stolen. As a person that commutes daily on a bike in a highly populated city, I'm not impressed by this bike. And as a person that enjoys reading about nearly anything, I'm pretty fucking annoyed by this "article"..
Love this bike. I didn't get one under the christmas tree though. Damn.
Ee-gad, Ill bet that seat is tough to stand (sit?)
