The Bike Flyover

Forget the bike-lane, lost in the traffic, often following roads directions made for cars (never mind if it gets longer), where you cycle right into the pollution. The bulgarian designer Angelov create Kolelinia, a short cut track that will make cycling a very much envying activity. Bikers are moving on an elevated line, working a bit like a ski lift. The wheel is pluged inside a gutter, and you get pull by the wire… It’s a bit scary, and you don’t know how you get in or out, how it stands in the air, etc. But nevertheless, the idea is quite funny isn’t it??

Kolelinia!

Pure Square

Let’s go for a blind test, let’s imagine we are on the radio. Q: What’s great about this new bike ? It’s electric – ok – It has a laptop case – ok, but is that really matter – it’s all square – There you go, it might not be the first one, but watch that shape. It look like an electronic device, like a futuristic tape reader of the 70’s… One more question : does it roll ??? Only its creator, Yuji Fujimura, a japanese designer settled in NYC may know the answer..
