Dramatic Bike Stand

Something as utilitarian as a bike stand has inspired designers, artists, and various competitions. The recent winner of the Gateway Bikestand Challenge in Toronto is Justin Rosette with what looks like a docking berth for Double-O Seven’s speedboat.

Other design submissions include Expression and Urban Relic.

Dig that one, but not sure a cyclist would know that’s a rack. A fav is the secure bike rack from Design Against Crime.

Bike Baskets and Basket Bikes

We’ve noticed handbuilt, custom bike shows always have a curious emphasis on baskets and racks. Someone could probably start a basket & rack blog and ponder racks from those shows and this porter from Good Morning Technology.

It combines a handlebar, basket and says, “hey check my basket!” Or the chrome version would work really well in a modernist bathroom. Hang hand towels and put all your toiletries in it.

Electra just sent us a Townie Sport 105 to test. We’ve gotten a number of people to ride it and are getting a full review together. In the meantime, enjoy the picture-y goodness.

Bizarre Bent

Bent riders are unto themselves, a rare breed, with crazy ideas like a morphing bike position … also see Joe Kochanowski and his 3-position machine.

West Side Invite 2009

We’re in Portland for a Mobile Social that weekend, but just the same the West Side Invite 09 is in Seattle this year:

“For the last eight years the Westside Invite has occurred in a place called Portland. Now in its ninth year we here in Seattle are fortunate enough to host this event (sans strip clubs). We hope to bring the same NW flavor that you would expect from a Westside, with a unique Seattle slant. What we are looking to do this year in Seattle is show everyone our beautiful Emerald City. Were going to take you to the places we hang out, the places we work and the places we play. This will not be just a metropolitan tour of the core, it will be cycling journey from south to north and from skid row to the top.”
