The Ultimate Citi Bike

This is the future and the city’s business district frowns upon those who bring their cars to work. The alternate arrangement is to leave your car at a distant parking lot and cycle your way to work. Why? Overpopulation has taken its toll on the city and this is a plausible solution. In comes the Ford Citi Bike, one that is designed for easy mounting and holding gadgets like laptops and iPad.

Its shape came from a user friendly perspective where the owner wont have to lift their legs up high to mount-dismount the bike, this way makes it easy to ride it with whatever kind of clothing. The mechanism of the bike consists in gears, and dented bands for traction, and torsion bars for steering.

Designed for Ford, inspired by the Ford Focus ST 2013

Designers: Jimena Compean, Isabel Ayala and Jose Arturo Moreno
