The next big idea in bikes?

Post travel, zombie-like, getting caught up on the news and noticed that “ideas and technology” were trending today. I guess on that topic, people are looking for the next big idea to grow their business and their career in this economy.

Reading the articles and writing one myself about Intel’s SciFi, I wondered what the next big idea is in cycling? I think 08 was cargo in the States.


What about 09? Is it bikes and technology or back to simplicity? Electric? Robots? Washing machines?

HED wheels can be mini too


So we were rolling down the rover path in Taipei when we came upon a Birdy bicycle at a rest stop. Half the bikes out there were mini-wheeled folders, but this one had tiny HED aero wheels on it.

Asahi Beer Cruiser Bike

If I won this – it was a frequent diner prize – I’d name it the “beer bomber.”

I see your bus bike racks…

…and I’ll raise you taxicab mounted bike

Seattle’s buses all have bicycle racks mounted on them, but I have never heard of nor seen racks on taxis before seeing this one in Taipei.

On one hand, it seems like an excuse to burn petrol in order to transport an emissions-less vehicle. On the other, I can state from personal experience that there are times that putting a bike on a taxi can be really handy. The only other time I’ve been to Taipei, I got absolutely lost. I had to go to a police kiosk and ask for help back like a moron. They called a taxi to take me back to the hotel, since I was miles from there.
