Austin is also having a contest to design new bikeracks for downtown (idea evidently stolen from NYC, see my previous post).
Of note, the organizer said:
“We’re going to install plaques at the base of the sculptures that say ‘bike rack’ and take old junk bikes, paint them, and hook them up to the racks when they’re unveiled,”
So I suppose that means they are expecting less than obvious designs or else they figure us Austinites are just too dumb to figure out where to park our rides.
Wow, I’d like to try this guy out:
Evidently it’s only available in the UK.
I bought this Breezer Zig7 from craigslist just before I left for Chicago last week. It’s nearly mint; the “dealer’s” demo model…not only that, but he lived right around the corner so it was minimal gas to meet him.
And…this folder actually fits my 6’04” frame. I’m still not sure how to get it on the plane, but it definitely fits in the trunk of of the BackAmp Research staff car.
