Starck Scooter Bike

Yellow-tired, scooter bike

Did the people of Bordeaux demand a bike than can scoot? Or did Starck just put his odd twist on it, like he did with the orange juicer? Look at the juicer and likely think, “that’s gonna spit orange all over the counter. Then, “that’s a lot of steel and parts to scoot along.”

I don’t get it. But that is very French and what Starck does. So scoot then pedal!

This idea for a new means of locomotion sprang from the analysis of much feedback from the citizens of Bordeaux, diverse opinions, constructive and intelligent ideas and the specificities of Bordeaux. This revolutionary solution seems to be the inventive and appropriate response to questions being asked regarding pedestrian areas,

The bike was developed for a bike scheme. We rode Velib in Paris and it was marvelous.

Also, the designers at Biria were either nonplussed about the latest imitation of their bikes or flattered.

Sometimes it’s not practical to be in the saddle, and since most people don’t do cantilever brake or cup/cone/locknut adjustment, I assume pushing is probably most people’s least favorite activity on a bike.

The right-foot-left-pedal scoot isn’t for everyone.
