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.
