A couple of "smart helmets" that are definitely geared toward the "blue ocean" of potential cyclists (http://buff.ly/28XLLHh)

Last summer, I was honored to serve as the transportation jury chair for the Core77 Design Awards - http://bicycledesign.net/2015/06/merge-evo-and-solid-bikes-from-the-2015-core77-design-awards/.

It’s hard to believe that it's already that time again, but the deadline to enter the 2016 Core77 Design Awards is quickly approaching. Entries in the transportation category this year will be reviewed by an esteemed jury led by Eric Noble, Professor, Vehicle Technology, from the Art Center College of Design. The Final Deadline is April 6th at 9pm Eastern, so enter today at http://bit.ly/1ohNfRb

Thats a truly terrible design, awful geometry, balance and just a dreadful lack of correct rider positioning.
Clearly designed by someone who knows VERY little (if anything) about cycling, bikes and ergonomics.

Great article about Ibis designer Roxy Lo in Bike Magazine. As this story illustrates, sometimes a designer from outside of an industry is needed to bring new ideas and a fresh perspective.
Meet Roxy Lo, the woman whose fresh perspective helped save Ibis Clycles and changed frame design forever.

A bike that weighs as much as 2 cats

"The Hummingbird Bike, as it is called, is made out of carbon fibre. We have reinvented the folding mechanism (which we patented) so that the chain is always tensioned and never falls off (like in other folding bikes). You could say it’s off the chain… haha."

Read more about our project at www.hummingbirdbike.com, and check out their Kickstarter page- https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/261988372/hummingbird-the-worlds-lightest-folding-bike
The answer is simple – we try to fix problems. We've always had this passion for taking things apart, understanding how they work and making them better. Every folding bike on the market is so heavy that it makes it more of a nuisance to carry it around with you. This was the main driver for ...

At the end of last year, I mentioned Robert D. Jones’ Derailleur Project wall calendar (http://bicycledesign.net/2014/12/the-derailleur-project-2015-wall-calendar/). For 2016, he is doing another calendar featuring photographs of vintage derailleurs, and he has created a second version with his photos of cranksets. Both look great, so check them out at the links below:

As far as I'm concerned, it could be a Campy Super Record crankset every single month of the year.

Mark Sanders' Taipei Bike Show keynote presentation was shared on Bicycle Design in 2009- http://buff.ly/1XVSItV . His slides below are worth a second look though. The idea of creating products for the huge untapped market of non-cyclists is just as relevant today!

Hmmm...no surprise that this six year old post from Bicycle Design is experiencing a traffic surge this week.

Here is a vintage bike design that I haven't seen before. It looks like a Bowden Spacelander on steroids. Who can tell me more about it?

Spotted via Lipstick-n-Wrenches on Instagram.
