made by teague and sizemore bicycle, the ‘denny’ was voted winner of the 2014 oregon manifest bike design project. the manifest’s project is an independent platform which partners high-level design firms with american bicycle craftsmen to develop the next-wave urban bike. the teague and sizemore creation was chosen as the best utility velocipede and will be built by fuji bikes. the two-wheeler has a detachable and quick stop handlebar lock and flexible storage to aid its use in the city. as well, the safety is improved as it is fitted with a rechargeable battery, which powers the brake lights, indicators and the electric assisted pedal.

the city bicycle also features a minimal fender design that removes water from the tires and auto-on lights that adjust to the surrounding natural light conditions. the seattle bike beat projects from 4 other cities, the ‘black line’ from chicago, new york city’s ‘merge‘, the ‘solid‘ from portland and the ‘evo’ from san francisco. teague is a creative consultancy whose work includes the UPS truck, all boeing airplane interiors and the xbox. their group of multidisciplinary designers worked together with the custom bike shop, sizemore to create the ‘denny’.

  • Helmets may not improve overall bicycle safety – that’s not the point! Helmets reduce deaths and severe neurological damage due to head injuries. ALL data collected over many years (in every country that collects data) supports this.

    Get real–

  • Mat, you may be surprised to learn that helmets do not actually significantly improve bicycle safety. In fact, when people are forced to wear helmets, as in Australia, it causes such a significant drop in casual cycling that it actually becomes more dangerous to ride than before the law was made. It may seem counter-intuitive, but the evidence is clear.
    In other news, this bike looks great, very well thought out. I do wonder what it is actually like to ride though, must be heavy.

  • “the rider’s safety is improved thanks to the brake and front lights.” Ironic that this is the picture where he isn’t wearing a helmet. Cool bike.
