After receiving the two prototypes last week it was a matter of days before the designers would travel to Utrecht to check the results of their work. Today Jurgen Kuivenhoven of Superframe took a first ride on the beixo share, a real unisex city bike, to be used by the whole household. I can not repeat the words that left his mouth having the first glance at his work, but positive it was! Some rather small changes have to be done before the share will be introduced to the Europen market. Mostly aesthetical changes, like the color of the decals.
The share is in our window at the office in Utrecht and only by that the first bikes are sold. So Jurgen, good work.
Last week Jos Ramselaar had the chance to meet his 16" folding bike, the GO. This technically more difficult bike is besides a design project also the result of a lot of engineering. The main characteristic of the bike is the downwards folding movement. This works fine, but fine-tuning is necessary to keep the bike together when folded.
And last weekend the GO was received very well on the FestiBike bikeshow in Madrid, Spain.
