The ‘DL122′ urban bike concept by French carmakers Peugeot features a built-in carrier for laptops and documents. A briefcase or laptop case can be fit securely between the two walls of the main frame and even locked into place, thus offering better protection for the device. Most innovatively, the design also provides better balance for the bike by maintaing the site of the center of gravity.
The bicycle itself is composed of wood and aluminum, with a leather saddle and handgrips, featuring 20-inch wheels and an 8-speed hub.

PumpTire The self inflating Bike tire


PumpTire is billed as the world’s first self-inflating bicycle tire.

The tire includes a built-in pumping mechanism that uses the spinning motion of the wheel to gather air and the weight of the bike to push air into the inner tube.

PumpTire is the company and product name of a complete set of items that consist of a tire, a tube, and detachable valve. The inner tube clips into the tire to allow the air to pass from the tire to the tube. Once the desired pressure is reached, the pump stops. The valve senses the increase in pressure and closes the air pathway so that no more air is pumped into.

Revolights

revolights. join the revolution. from revolights on Vimeo.

In Sheffield, a city of seven (very steep hills) and very few bike lanes, there are two vital things you need if you choose to ride around on two wheels. One is possessing a set of quads like tightly coiled panthers, the other is being noticed – particularly by an unsuspecting 4×4′s. I like this smart adaptation of the traditional brake light I saw recently, it has a greater surface area of light than the more traditional models and therefore creates more visibility and awareness for oncoming traffic, and aesthetically it feels like it integrates to the shape and form of the bike rather than an added bolt-on.

This is just at prototype stage so if you want to show support and make a donation to the project please back it on Kickstarter.
