The bike, dubbed the “Denny,” was crowned the winner this week at the Oregon Manifest Bike Design Project competition. The contest pitted five teams from across the country (each a collaboration between a bike company and a design firm) against each other in the creation of the “ultimate urban utility bike.”
The Seattle-inspired cycle grabbed the attention with its removable handlebar locking system and electric drive pedal assist. Other techie features include an automatic gear shifter, removable battery, minimalistic "fenders," integrated storage and a full set of lights.
The winning project was collaboration between Seattle frame builders Sizemore Bicycles and Teague, a product design company whose portfolio includes the Polaroid camera, UPS truck, Pringles canister and the Xbox.
