LOCAL Bike by Yves Behar

LOCAL bike is a specially designed bike which could be a perfect mode of transportation to do all sorts of work in our neighborhood. It is an outcome of The Oregon Manifest design challenge where FuseProject worked together with a local bike builder, SyCip. LOCAL can be used to carry out every work we have in our neighborhood and almost bring back the pleasure of riding a bicycle in our neighborhood and thus replaces our traditional bicycles.

Designer : Yves Behar

LOCAL bike is like a pick-up truck. This bike consists of powerful and flexible front platform which helps to carry the provisions, surfboards and even kids. It’s like a workhorse that helps you in all way. Generally cargo bikes are bulky and heavy but this product gives a new definition for cargo bikes. Load placement and navigation problems in cargo bikes are addressed in this design. It has 11 gears and hydraulic disk brakes. It also has music with a wireless JAMBOX speaker and also the locking and lighting features. Shimano “Alfine” internal hub is used in designing this bike.

  1. Think they better figure out a way to shield those front spokes if they're going to put a kid up there. Going through life without fingers wouldn't be too good.

  2. I was going to comment on the same safety issue but read Mr. Hahn's comment and I totally agree. otherwise its nicely done.
