Purple Pedals

We first noticed Flickr’s Moblogging, Geotagging Bike a few weeks ago, when I spotted it in Dunstan’s photostream. Since then, Yahoo! has launched a related site and Lifehacker details how the bikes work (PDF). The bike is an Electra and built by Uncommon Projects.


We’ve discussed bikes and mobile technology before and dig what Yahoo! and crew has built.

We hope the Purple Bikes generate even more buzz, pushing innovation. Next month, we’re back in Taipei for another Intel Developer Forum, and are looking for the latest mobile devices. Maybe we’ll see one during a Mobile Social? Also see Fritz’s post on Commute by Bike.

We're riding townies, adventure, and mountain bikes. Find recommendations on our store page. As Amazon Associates we earn from qualifying purchases.
