Biomega brought in two artist to design the respective bikes. Ross Lovegrove designed the LDN, and Danish design group KiBiSi took on the NYC model. One thing both bikes will have in common is a belt drive, and integrated mudguard.

The Biomega LDN frame is made of carbon fiber sheets, that are layered for a stiff and light one piece monocoque commuter frame.

Sobi – Social Bicycle System

pinit fg en rect gray 20   Sobi   Social Bicycle System

Social Bicycles is a new bike-share system design created by Ryan Rzepecki. “SoBi” is a transport system which uses wireless technology as access to the bicycles. The product is attached on a bicycle where security and authorization of use is integrated in the unit. A test run for the lock box will be done in New York City this fall.

Unlike existing bike share programs in Europe and in some cities in the U.S., there will be no need for a bike rack. A user can register online and download a software application for his mobile phone to facilitate the use of the bicycle. A central server tracks the bike, verifies the account information of the user and authorizes the transaction.

The current bike share programs budget about $3000 to $4000 per bike. With the SoBi, the projected start up cost would be around $1000 per bike. SoBi can be attached…

While the world of folding bikes seems to get larger, Bigfish shares with us their unique and quick folding bike.

The Bigfish Folding Bike uses a one piece front triangle and rear triangle, plus a hinged fork. Bigfish says the bike can be folded within 10 seconds, and this is achieved by quick release fastening throughout the bike. Best part is, no tools are required.

On some folding bikes, you have to worry about the bike collapsing while riding, but since there is no hinge in the front, and a weak point is nonexistent.

The Bigfish folding bike retails for $599 USD, and comes in black, pink, gold, and orange. Rumor has it another model will release at a lower price and with a different design. Not sure if this is the bike for you? You can stop by the Waterfront Bicycles Shop in Portland to test…
