The Sofa Bike

Nothing is quite as stylish as a sofa bike.

From designboom:

Designed by jacek holubowicz, the eccentric ‘sofa bike’ has been conceived for the notion of the ‘bike date’. The design includes two separated 8-gear hubs, hydraulic brakes (all operated by a front handle bar), and dynamic chain steering for manoeuvring through the streets. Two extra soft bolsters are included that can be removed according to the driver’s height. The ‘bike couch’ is also equipped with a sound system, 17 AH battery and a folding roof with gas springs.

The perfect bike date maybe?

Seoul Bike Design

Every Wednesday on Ditch Your Car we’ll be bringing you just another reason to spend more time on two wheels. Be it a photo, a statistic or an inspirational video, we want to keep reminding you about why riding is great!

When you put design savvy bike lovers to work, you get some good results. Designboom has a post outlining all of the winning entries to this year’s Seoul Cycle Design Competition.

What was the grand winning design? Bike 2.0: Next Generation Bicycle. From the designer:

Bike 2.0 the next generation bicycle, will give you more fun with energy boosts when you are cruising around. It makes you daily ride more comfortable with energy leveling and the stepless gearbox. You can even add the seat-tube battery and get there faster. Bike 2.0 has a generator and wires instead of a chain, so you will never get oily pants or fingers from the chain again. The two wireless control-units will control any aspect of your ride. You can easily control all this with the two wireless rings on the handlebar.

Sweet…
