A bike design competition project from Oregon Manifest tasked five design teams to create and produce the "next-wave urban bike." Each design firm was paired with a bicycle builder in each of their respective city, and had to produce a working prototype (not just designs/renderings) in order to be considered.
One bike came out on top: The Denny (to be produced by Fuji Bikes next year), from the Seattle design firm TEAGUE and builder Sizemore Bicycle. The bike features a handlebar that doubles as a u-lock, a cargo rack, electric assist, auto-shifting, and integrated smart lights, making it the ultimate commuting tool for green travelers.
Meet Denny and learn about more features of the innovative bike in TEAGUE's video:
