Last year during a visit to Silicon Valley, took photos of the Google Bikes.
Today CNET reported that Google replaced the 20-inch wheel bikes with new ones after a company-wide, design competition with the criteria of
Googley, using novel components, structure, and appearance.
While popular, the small bikes were uncomfortable for taller cyclists. To us and likely you, the new bike looks like an average city bike. Still, campus-wide bikes are something we can’t criticize.
Confirmed with Republic bikes today that they built these bikes for Google.
