This 3D Printed Bike Tells You Where to Go

Maybe it has been the influence of the current hipster scene: the hype among urban biking.

Apparently urban biking requires entirely different bikes than suburban biking does and therefore a Bike Design Project started where five design studio’s across five cities had to come up with a perfect urban bike.

The winning bike will be manufactured for a limited run of 100 bikes and will be in stores next year.

Industry, a Portland-based studio came up with a very interesting bike: one that uses Bluetooth and handlebars that tell you when to stop or turn.

Industry worked together with Ti Cycles to create a bike with a 3D printed titanium frame. The bike is called Solid and can connect to a smartphone app: My Bike.

This app alarms a user when a light needs replacement and if something gets wrong with one’s brakes.

There is also software called Discover My City, which has a series of routes through Portland’s most trendy neighborhoods, with suggestions about where to eat and shop.

This-3D-Printed-Bike-Tells-You-Where-toNevertheless, the idea with cycling is that you need to focus on the road and not on your smartphone.

This bike therefore uses integrated feedback on handlebars.

Those handlebars tell a user when to turn, as they will buzz when a turn appears.

As you’re getting closer, they will buzz more frequently.

And then there’s the possibility to control your light via built-in sensors and change gears by pressing an electronic button. Yes, a bike for superman.

Although the bicycle looks highly interesting and can be seen as a piece of art for the designing world, we don’t know if we would like our bike to have an automatic buzz when we’re approaching a turn.

On the other side: it could add some extra safety to traffic in general. Whether you like the bike or not, you have to admit the Portland-based studio brings the concept of urban biking to a whole new level.
