As the 2015 Core77 Design Awards transportation jury captain, I was happy to see that one of the student entries from our category was selected as the overall winner in the inaugural Community Choice awards.

Congratulation Ignas Survila for the recognition of your PIGEON scooter design!

‪#‎C77Awards15‬ ‪#‎C77CommChoice‬
After a flurry of tweets and Facebook posts (plus an untold number of emails/phone calls/favors called in we may never know about) the results of the very first Core77 Design Awards Community Choice are in!

It's not so obvious.  Where do you draw the line? Faired?  Unfaired? Recumbent?

You need a bloody long torso to reach those bars .

Actually saddles are positioned how the rider feels most comfortable . For example  trials, MTB freeride  etc it's better to have the saddle pointing slightly upwards so that you are positioned further in towards the frame for better control and stability .

My recent post about the ‪#‎MandoFootloose‬ chainless hybrid e-bike, designed by Mark Sanders, is featured on Core. In the future, look for one post from Bicycle Design to be featured at Core77 each month.
Though it has been nearly three years since I first shared Mark Sanders' design for the Mando Footloose chainless hybrid e-bike on bicycledesign.net, that 2012 post still remains quite popular today. After the successful introduction of the original Footloose, Mark was asked to design a new non-folding (and more affordable)
