Schwinn debuts a eco friendly bike at 2010 EuroBike, which took home the EuroBike Gold Award for innovative design.

The Schwinn Vestige looks like your basic commuter bike on the surface, but is constructed of natural biodegradable flax fibers splashed with water soluble paint. As you can imagine, this is the first time a bike company has achieved this.

Acting almost like a carbon frame, the flax fibers insulation absorbs vibrations.
